  • Trip introduction

    This is the lake that never freezes over completely, according to local legend. At an elevation of 14,000 feet, it is accessible via Vashisht hot springs near Manali, and offers a great trek. You'll pass through the green valleys of Kullu, and pass into the more barren landscape near Rohtang Pass as you go higher. One of the attractions is your campsite that is at the same altitude of Rohtang Pass, one of the highest motorable roads in the world. Total bragging rights!

    Destination

    This trek is one of the easier ones in Himachal Pradesh, and is suitable for families, trekking newbies, and anyone looking for a short mountain getaway. It takes you through gorgeous forests filled with flowers and fruit trees, and into the lap of the snowy peaks of the Pir Panjal range.
