Trek starts with a gradual climb up to Jaau Dhar- Forest Nursery and after that eases out along the cedar trees right up to the Negi Dugh. The trek gradient increases gently and at some portions one has to climb in a zigzag way. The Negi Dugh is located high at a vantage point and is surrounded by Cedar trees. The trek from Dhuhagan Bridge to the Negi Dugh is leading through a dense forest of Cedar trees beauties. The campsite is very scenic and one could enjoy the real Himalayan vistas. In the evening explore camp and move to evening activities.
    Overnight at the Negi Dugh.

    Day 6

    Negi Dugh – Kurrdi (3030m) 4 hrs.
    Today’s trek is very tiresome up to the confluence ridge of Kurrdi and Jammu Dugh. The trail proceeds in a zigzag way through dense forest of pines and Silver fir. Once the zigzag trail ends, it is a steep ascent amidst silver fir trees. Some portions of the climb are to be tackled in a horizontal way till the steep ridge of Kurrdi. The tough climb starts again along the steep ridge for an hour after which it is a moderate walk along the slanted slope right up to the campsite Kurrdi. Kurrdi is a luminous point and one can have a vast view of Kullu, Chanderkhani Pass and Manali valley. Kurrdi is a Shepard’s paradise and herds of sheep mainly stays during the summer season, when they are on their way of crossing over high passes to the grazing pastures into of folded mountain valleys. In the evening explore camp and move to evening activities.
    Overnight at Kurrdi.

    Day 7

    Kurradi – Dharanoo Dugh (3420 mtr. 4hours)
    The trek starts with a steep section at the start, through forest of silver fir, Bhujpattar, oak and chestnut. At the end of the steep section trekkers have to negotiate moderate climbs through forestry side ridge up to Moar Thach and Samalach Thach, its basically Shepard’s grazing pastures. From Samalach Thach the route ascends on a moderate grassy slope and then onto a moderate horizontal traverses above the tree line to the campsite. Dharanoo Dugh is located in a grassy meadow on the knoll of the Shirgan -Tungu on one side of the Pirpanjal range. From the camp, there is an enchanting view of the Dhauladhar range, Chhota Bhangal, kalyani Pass and its lofty mountain peaks. At campsite you can also have a full view of Manali valley, and the distant snowcapped mountains of Beas Kund, Rohtang Pass massif and Khanaul & Chhika. Dharanoo Dugh is very popular for the local Gaddi shepherds. They graze their herds of sheep on these vast grassy meadows. Watch out for one of the rare glimpses of brown / black bears below the Dharanu Dugh campsite. We have seen a couple of black bears while descending down on dense forest to find out a proper trail to Khannaul but route was too scary and have to abandoned it. In the evening indulge in some fun adventure activities.
    Overnight at Dharanoo Dugh.

    Day 8

    Dharanu Dugh – Base of Shirgan -Tungu (3750m) & back to Banaad/ Jammu Dugh Campsite (2500 mtr 6 hours)
    The trail proceeds on the long snowy slanted ridge and slowly begins to ascend towards Shirgan-Tungu Base (3750M). As you trek along the ridge, one can have a close view of gigantic Shirgan –Tungu peak and mountain massif distant view of Rohtang Pass Mountains and an enchanting mountain peak of the Beas Kund massif. The first magnificent view of the Shirgan Tungu Peak comes in glance after gaining a 15 minutes’ walk on the snowy ridge and as you ascends and gets nearer to you.
    The climb along the ridge though enjoyable is windy with a chill wind blowing.

    Dhalau Paudhar is the right place to have close view of Shirgan -Tungu and its snout of Kalu Nullah flows down into Khanaul. While descending down to campsite its better to take ridge side path to have breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain peaks of the Pirpanjal Range, Chanderkhani pass & Malana, Dhauladhar range, Chhota Bhangal, and further beyond the greater Himalayan ranges.

    The way back to Dharanoo Dugh is made more enjoyable by glissading at all places on the way. The trail up to Base would be covered by a heap of snow and the path would be difficult to negotiate due to snow compactness. The landscape is full of fauna & flora and while descending to Dharanoo Dugh one can have a luminous view of Manali town and valley. The campsite is in the open puff and having magnificent view of the distant Mountain of Dhauladhar range. The trekkers will be returned back to Dharanu Dugh before lunch and either have lunch or having freshened up at summit camp Dharanoo Dugh. A complete group will have to descent down to Jammu Dugh/ Banaad campsite for safe and sound sleep and also proper recuperation.

    Banaad/ Jammu Dugh (2500m) – Trail descends same way down in a zigzag way through Moar Thach (3235m), to Kurrdi and at little down Kurrdi is a diversion to Jammu Dugh and Banad. The Jammu Dugh/ Banaad is situated in the middle of the mountain hill of dense forest and located amidst silver fir trees and Apple orchards. A very lovely campsite is – a just reward after a great day’s work and a daylong hectic walk. It is only one and half hours walk down to Jammu Dugh and Banaad.

    Banaad/ Jammu Dugh (2500m) is really the Himalayan tranquil place of harmonious people where they perform Puja. This is as per our revenue records known as Koot means (Sheppard private land) a fertile & grassy Land where our ancestors used Koot land for keeping herds of sheep’s and also producing Buck Wheat. In the evening move to adventure activities if time permits.
