Camping amid snow-capped mountains and witnessing pristine glacier - the experience of a lifetime
Also known as the Shepard’s trek, Bara Bhangal is a challenging trek with steep climbs that reward travellers with stunning views of the Indrasan, Deo Tibba, Dhauladhar, and Pir Panjal ranges. With campsites in meadows decorated with wildflowers, lakes, and bleating sheep, this trail journeys through the beautiful Kalihani and Thamsar passes, from Manali to Bir-Billing, covering a diverse landscape that goes from lush forests and meadows, to stream crossings, fields, high passes, and glacial traverses.
