Trek Overview

Bara Bhangal Trek is surely not for beginners, the reason being it's exhausting terrain and the long duration. It takes you from the green pastures of Kullu to the stark landscapes of Bara Bhangal Range. But the trek is itself rewarding, it doesn't have a certain summit point as the trek is named after a village at 2900 m but the whole trek is itself made-up of beautiful challenges of the river crossing, beautiful glacial lakes and two passes ?the Kalihani Pass and the Thamsar pass'.

The 11-day trek beginning from Manali includes the wide pastures, dense forests, crossing rivers, glacial lakes, the mesmerizing views of the snow-clad peaks to finally reach Riyali Thach. Where most of the treks include a summit point where you witness a high peak or cross a path, this trek improves your trekking adventure to another level. The route includes the mesmerizing view of some of the mighty peaks, namely Dev Tibba, Indrasan and peaks of the Bara Shigri Glacier and that too from different faces. The trek crosses two passes, namely Kalihani Pass and the Thamsar Pass, which not only improve your trekking experience but also add an acclimatization walk to your route. Along with this, you experience another adventure of the river crossing, the flow and the chill of the river water adds an amazing experience to your trek. After that you witness some of the high altitude glacial lakes, call it icing on the cakes. This trek is counted among the toughest treks in the Himachal and is a must-to-do trek to enhance your bond with the Himalayas.
