Chandrakhani Pass Trek Kullu

Duration: Maximum - 04 Days

About This Trek:
Considerable variations are possible after Chanderkhani Pass, and a number of alternatives are appended. The pass can be crossed between April and November but the best period is 10 May to 30 June, and 20 August to 15 October.

:  I t i n e r a r y :

All the treks of Kullu (Himachal Pradesh India) is connected by 'our coach' with Delhi, Chandigarh, Jammu and Srinagar.

DAY-1

Manali-Nagar (1767 / 1840m) - Rumsu (2135m) 29km - Reach Nagar by bus.  From the bunglow go towards the Roerich Art Gallery, turn right and climb for 3 Km t Rumsu village, an old typical habitation with a temple.  Continue for 4km to a camp ground (2378m).

DAY-2

Rumsu-Chanderkhani Pass (3541m)-Malana 12Km - The trail leads through tall pines along the S side of Chakki Nala.  After 3km the forest limit is reached and alpine meadiws stretch ahead.  The pass is shaped like a crescent moon hence the name.  After June there will be little snow on the ground, and a rising traverse up the curved ridge leads to the top.  Extensive panorama all round of the Bara Bangahal, Pir Panal ad Parbati ranges.

On the other side, a clear trail descends steeply for 4km to Malana.  Until 20 years ago, entering Malana was prohibited.  Even now, though one can go into the village, visitors must not touch the walls of the temple or accost the people.  This locality is a republic, governed by a parliament called Koram.  The inhabitants have distinct customs.  Camp outside the village near a stream.

DAY-3

Malana-Chhota Grahan Thach (3355m) 12Km - An enjoyable stretch; a broad trail meanders N/NE along the Malana Nala, throgh dense forest and meadow clearings; the valley widens at the camp ground.  This is an ideal camping place with a variety of wild flowers and herbs all round.

DAY-4

Chhota Grahan-Khiksa Thach (3660m)-Malana Glacier (3840m) 13km - The trail ascends to a ridge, goes down to the stream again and continuous upwards through bushes. after 3h reach a small valley, Khiksa Thach, which offers views of high peaks and is drained by tiny streamlets of clear water.  It now becomes difficult to follow the main stream; bear left on to a ridge and follow this with several ups and downs for 3-4h, and finally down on to the Malana Glacier.  Ali Ratni Tibba towers majestically above to the S; to the N are the peaks of Indrasan (6221m) and Deo Tibba (6001m).

Variation of this trek - 1

The shortest way back ovedr the Chanderkhani Pass starts near Chhota Gramin in the upper Malana Valley.  Cross a precarious log bridge and take a meandering path NW at a moderate angle up to Dadru camp ground, then to the Nagruni (3200m). In another 3.5km the path joins the main trail coming down to Malana, not far from the top of the pass.

Variation of this trek - 2

Apart from descending the Malana Valley to Jari through the lower gorge, steep and not very pleasant, crossing the Rashol Pass is prefered by trekkers and is quite enjoyable.  From Malana stream.  A path bears E and SW through fields, then dense forest.  The climb steepens below the pass which is reached in 4h from Malana.  Descend the S side steeply through the forest and rhododendron to Rashol hamlet; small cave 1km before this place.  Below Rashol the path heads down steeply for 5km to a village, from where a track is taken E along the Parbati river for 3km to cross a bridge and reach Kasol on the Kullu-Manikaran road; tourist bungalow and forest resthouse.  Regular bus service along this road back to Kullu Valley.

Variation if this trek - 3

Having gone back to Chanderkhani Pass, a path strikes SW along the Chanderkhani crest to Phodil Thach (c.3500m), under Peak 3680m, where the path curves NW, following the top of the ridge down to Chaklani Thach (c. 3200m). Many fine views.  It continues descending gradually through the forest, past Gugti Thach, Parol Thach and Shedu Pathar Thach under Pt. 3339m.  From there the path drops steeply to cross Cakki Nala and reaches Nagar.
