Darcha Baralacha Pass Trek Lahaul

Duration: Maximum - 06 Days

About This Trek:
The Baralacha crosses the Great Himalayan Range from the Lahaul Valley into Zanskar. The trail circles round a great congregation of Lahaul peaks identified in groups by the letters KR (Koa Rang), M (Mulkila) and CB (Chandra Bhaga).  Spectacular views of these summits and their glaciers are so afforrded.  The trek is strenuous and the best period is between July and end-September.  Reach Darcha (3300m) by the regular bus service from Manali (10-12h).  The camp ground lies in the broad bed of the Barai Nala.  A portion of the journey, from Darcha to Baralacha Pass, lies along the Manali-Leh highway.  But there is hardly any traffic to disturb walkers; and take shortcuts.  Arrangements for hiring mules or porters should preferably be made in Manali.

:  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

Darch-Patseo (3820m) 12km - The first section along the main highway traverses a barren landscape.  While there is little traffic, several shortcuts can be made.  Small military base at Patseo; the camp site is a near it, accross the Bhaga river; water for cooking, etc. from the river.

DAY-2

Patseo-Zingzingbar (4150m) 10km Easy walking along the right side of the river.  After Patseo the road turns E to Zingzingbar camp ground.  A dilapidated road makers' hut and a small temple are seen nearby.

DAY-3

zingzingbar-Suraj Tal (4802m) 10 Km - Proceeding along the Bhaga river for 3km, the road crosses a bridge to the N bank, then climb gradually.  About 2.5km. from the bridge a steep foot trail is seen leaving the road, going up to Suraj Tal, a lake with a circumference of about 4km, at the head of the valley.  This is the source of the Bhaga river.  An army check post about 2km away can be seen near Baralacha Pass.  The pass is quite a long, curved saddle/plateau, the northern side being 4891 m (towards Leh), the southern side c. 5100, heading down towards Chandra Tal.  Camp about 500m further along from the army post as the ground near the latter is geneally sggy and freezing cold wind blows all night.

DAY-4

Suraj Tal-(Baralacha Pass)-Tokpo Yongma (4640 m) 12km - The conventional route into the Chandra Valley lies over the exposed pass, buffeted by the elements.  Avoid walking over the pass and traverse under it on the S side.  From the main road near the Suraj Tal, ford a stream after 1km and continue almost horizantally in the gravel bed.  It then leads over a plateau with a good view of the Koa Rang Peaks to the SW.  An easy walk onwards through arid desolate countryside down to Tokpo Yongma.

DAY-5

Tokpo Gongma (4320m) 11km - Make a very early morning start as the Sarchu Nala has to be forded.  The current becomes swift as the sun rises and snow above start melting.  Normally a snowbridge because on the other side the trail traverses a slippery rock face which animals cannot negotiate.  So they have to to ford the stream.  After the snowbridge the trail ascends steeply across the rock face for 30 min, then traverses round a shoulder.  The path cutting through rubble and boulders is not visible for a distance; but as you proceed it becomes more distinct and traverses a rugged mountain wall cut by small streams and snow gullies.  It then works down to the river and a few glaciers can be seen on the other side, coming down from the Koa Rang peaks.  About 2km from the last campsite, a wide stream has to be forded.  If this spot is reached late, you may have to camp beside the stream and cross it early next morning.  From this stream Tokpo Gongma is still 5-6h.

DAY-6

Tokpo Gongma-Chandra Tal (4270m) 12km - Either ford the Tokpo Gongma or cross it by a snowbridge some 15 min upstream.  This bridge is usually strong enough to take the weight of mules.  Or cross it in the late evening and camp on the other side of the stream.  The trail ahead rises and falls several times, but mostly stays beside the river; a few shepherds' rock shelters along the way.  Fine view of Mulkila (6517m), Tragari (6279m), Tapu Giri (5790m) and of othe Chandra-Bhaga peaks, ribboned with many glaciers.  Approaching Chandra Tal, the trail descends from the mountainside, crosses a stream, climbs again for 15 min then descends to the lake, an emrald disc of clear water about 3km long and 1km wide.  Camp anywhere round the lake; the usual site is at the S end beside a clear stream that flows out of the lake.  From a hill above splendid view of Mulkila and the extensive Samunder Tapu Glacier.
