This is an important update for trekkers scheduled to start their trek from Manali.

Due to heavy rainfall, the repair-work on roads from Mandi to Manali has halted. The area is also experiencing fresh landslides. In such a situation, travelling to Manali is difficult. So we won’t be running our treks--Hampta Pass, Bhrigu Lake, Beas Kund and Chandrakhani Pass--from Manali till August 28th.

This unfortunate turn of events is worrying. Many trekkers who are scheduled to start their trek from Manali in the first week of September are hesitating to start their travel, and understandably so.

“For trekkers who are unsure about travelling to Manali after August 28th, we have opened a new group to the Tarsar Marsar trek in Jammu and Kashmir. This group starts on September 3rd from Srinagar,” Nandana shares.

The Tarsar Marsar trek is experiencing good weather this season.

“Out of 16 groups, 14 were able to do the entire trek. Just two groups were affected by the bad weather. Apart from that, the entire season has been seamlessly on track,” shares Debadrita Ghosh, Experience Coordinator for the Tarsar Marsar trek.

If you have an upcoming trek starting from Manali, please get in touch with your Experience Coordinator for further details.
