• Trip introduction

    This one-day trek in the Himalayan range is perfect for someone looking for a short, relaxed getaway in the Himalayas. Gaining a height of over 3200ft in 5 hours, the Lamadugh trek takes us through ever-changing vistas and also to few of the iconic structures of Manali, offering us fantastic views along the way.

    We also enjoy a delicious vegetarian lunch on the trek.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip, so a minimum group size of 5 pax is required to make a booking. This will be a private trip, just for your group.


    Packed with snow and a myriad of bird life early on in the season, the Lamadugh trek is an ideal trek to introduce you to the undeniable allure of trekking. The trek is the perfect activity for a day spent outdoors and for escaping the crowds that Manali attracts.

    Starting from the famous Hadimba Temple, the trail winds through pine, oak, horse chestnut, maple, and cedar forests to come to picturesque glades with sweeping views of Manali, the Manalsu glacier, the Dhauladhar and Pirpanjal ranges including Hanuman Tibba, Deo Tibba and Rohtang Pass.

  • Trek to Lamadugh

    We start the trek from Dhungri about 1.5 kms from Manali, and we pass through the famous Hadimba temple. The trail takes you through thick deodar and pine forests. The climb offers spectacular glimpses of Manali, and Kullu valley. As we continue on our path, the magnificent views of Indrasan, Deo Tibba and the peaks of Bara Shigri glacier open-up. Finally, the path takes you through Lamadugh, an alpine plateau with a thick growth of beautiful alpine flowers.

    After a delicious lunch, we spend some time relaxing and exploring the area around and start making our way down to Manali. We reach Manali by 4 in the evening, where our trek ends.

      'I had booked a trek to Devkund Waterfalls on 29th October through The Great Next. It was an amazing experience. As it was my first trek ever, I was very unsure about the expedition but started liking it as soon the the trip begin. Trek leads were friendly and well organized. The safety during our time at the waterfall was taken care very well and the information regarding what all to carry and what to expect during the trek was very accurate. Overall, I had an very good first experience and looking forward to go for more with The Great Next.'

      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.
