This three-day trek across the hills and plateaus of the Thachi Valley combines a trek to the Chanjwala mountain peak with short treks around the valley to explore a list of local destinations. You'll hike to Chanjwala top over a relatively easy trail, and arrive at the peak to grab breathtaking views of rolling hills that dominate the horizon. You'll also visit the Bithu Narayan temple, trek to the Hadima peak, dip your feet at the Ashu Alli river stream and hike across the never ending meadows of Sapona Dhar and Sheeta Dhar. After a day of exploring the secluded trails of Thachi, you'll spend the night in tents at a campsite surrounded by apple orchards and deodhar forests.
NOTE: A minimum of 2 travellers are required to book this Chanjwala trek.
Thachi Valley, an off-beat destination in the heart of Himachal Pradesh, is perched between the mountains that overlook the Great Himalayan National Park. A nature lover's paradise, the valley is criss-crossed with river streams and waterfalls that inspire lush grasslands and terraced farms. The valley is sprawling green with forests in the summer and layered white with snow in the winter.
The Chanjwala peak, the mainstay of this trek, is a 9,800 ft mountain peak that is blanketed with crisp snow in the winter. Peppered with deodhar trees, the summit of the peak is accessible via a 5-hr trek from your campsite.
