Day 1:

Arrival at Manali & Trek to Mindua

  • Arrive in Manali and Mountaineerz will be happy to pick you up from the air port/bus terminal and we will assist you to settle in to dA Base/cottage/hotel/accommodation of your choice.
  • The climbers who have not stayed overnight with us at dA Base, are welcome to join us for breakfast and a chat session with the Mountaineerz team and your fellow climbers.
  • Get all your questions answered in order to ensure a great trek.
  • We will drive up to the oldest village in the Kullu Valley, ‘Soil’.
  • After visiting the beautiful ancient temple of Jamdagni Rishi and Kabir (Kabir was to Rishi Jamdagni like Nandi was to Lord Shiva). No one is allowed to enter the inner sanctum of the temple. Only the pujari (priest) can go there and he too has to be blindfolded.
  • Soil in itself is a charming little village and it is sheer joy to trek across it. From Soil, we start walking towards ‘Mindua’. The trail is fairly easy and leads up to Guhad. It is a vast expanse of meadows with forests of Kharshu, Walnut, Chestnut, Bhojpatra etc.
  • A trek for another 4 to 5 hours will lead us to Mindua. We will pitch our tents here and camp overnight with some bone warming bonfire and lovely dinner with chatter.

Day 2:

Mindua - Shodupathar - Dhundha

  • The sun rise at Mindua is surreal. Enjoy a high-nutrition breakfast here and charge up for the trek ahead.
  • We start our ascent to Dhunda. The trail runs through dense Oak forests and the pure oxygen almost hurts the lungs.
  • The trail will now lead to chowkigarh nalla, a small stream, and we will cross this to reach a lush green meadow amidst a thick forest of predominantly Oak trees.
  • We will pitch our tents here. Take in the beautiful surroundings and explore the surroundings.
  • After some nice warm dinner, snuggle up in your sleeping bags for the night.

Day 3:

Dhundha - Parkuni

  • After a morning charge up session and a healthy breakfast, we leave for Parkuni, which is above the tree line.
  • The trail meanders through thick forests of Birch, Rhododendron and Juniper. This region is laden with various rare plants and herbs like Karu, Chora, Patish, Gugal, and wild Garlic etc, which are known to have some high medicinal value. The air is heavily laden with unadulterated oxygen and there is only so much you can do to keep your excitement in check.
  • For those who may need a bit of motivation to keep walking, the sights and sounds and textures of Himalaya will prove to be a fuel enough.
  • We will camp for the night in Parkuni.

Day 4:

Parkuni - Kukarban - Batarunaag Saur - Vasukinaag Saur - Futta Saur - Mata Kotli Saur - Parkuni

  • Today, we get our much deserved eternal reward when we feast on the sights of natural grandeur that will form memories for a life time.
  • After breakfast, we will trek for about 45 minutes to reach the first lake ‘Batarunaag Saur’. A short walk will bring us to one of the most ethereal lakes; ‘Vasukinaag Saur’.
  • A short distance from here basks the elusive lake ‘Futta Saur’ and ‘Mata Kotli Saur’. I have chosen to call them “Elusive” as they are almost always hidden in mist and give the illusion that they are just a stone’s throw away.
  • The attempt to sight the Elusive Lakes will be done in Alpine style.
  • The terrain here is a bit rocky and not very suitable for camping. So, our tents will remain pitched at Parkuni while we will trek to the lakes and back well in time for dinner and bonfire (if conditions permit).
  • Turn into your sleeping bags and slide into a blissful sleep while atop the Mountain of Lakes. 

Day 5:

Parkuni - Shodupathar

  • Now you can take things at your own pace. Just unwind and chill with some breakfast at Parkuni.
  • From here retrace your steps backwards to reach the campsite at Shodupathar.
  • Pitch tents here and just connect with nature. The challenging part of the trek is over. You have earned the right to celebrate.

Day 6:

Shodupathar - Soil - DA Base Base, Haripur

  • After breakfast and some photography at leisure, we will leave Shodupathar for dA Base at Haripur via Soil village.
  • Reach dA Base and unwind and celebrate with some hot lunch and a non-stop chatter about our achievement of trekking through the Mountain of Lakes.
  • Believe me when I say this, we have earned our celebration because there are very few who can honestly claim to have gone to the Mountain of Lakes and been blessed with the sightings of the mystical lakes.
  • Relax at the base camp before we part ways here to meet soon for our next adventure. Take the bus back to Delhi from Manali at 5:00 pm to wrap up your tour.
