  • Trip introduction

    This adventure takes you into misty Himalayan heights to see a centuries-old glacier and to witness a river being born. The landscape changes as the trek progresses, from idyllic meadows filled with flowers and shrubs to rocky outcrops and craggy peaks. You'll camp in stunning locales, sleeping under the stars and listening to the wind as it whistles past.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 6 pax is required to make the booking.

    Destination

    This trek begins with a drive along the Beas river, past the wide and scenic locales of Solang Nullah, and into the charming Dhundi. From there, the uncommonly beautiful trekking route winds up through the mountains, giving you views of famed peaks like Hanuman Tibba and Shitidhar. Every campsite is a delight, located either in the midst of riots of wildflowers or with 360-degree views of glaciers and massive peaks.

    Today is largely a driving day. The vehicles pick up the group to drive to Dhundi.

Dhundi is the last stop, from where the campsite is a short walk away. Don’t miss the first glimpse of the majestic Hanuman Tibba from the campsite.

    Camp in the Himalayan wilderness.

      Pathetic experience. They are broker they dont do anything . These guys just do the tie up with local treakking group who are responcible for all the activitites. They tie up with cheaper treakking group and they provide worst quality of food, worst tent, worst and dirty sleeping bags .

      TGN has a very sophisticated and concise web page along with many optional details and information. This is one of the few sites that provides information about the operator. All the operators they recommend are safe, well-trained and reliable. They are easily accessible and offer reasonable deals. I've booked a trekking and river rafting trip with them already, and it was a very good experience. I'll always choose The Great Next to plan my adventure trips.
