Today, more than a month after the deluge caused by heavy rains in Himachal Pradesh, 18 trekkers started their journey towards Miyar Valley. They reached Manali yesterday, and today they are travelling from Manali to Shukto—the basecamp for the trek.

“The team is already on the way to Shukto. The roads have been repaired, and the journey is smooth. All trekkers are expected to reach Shukto by 3 p.m. today,” updates Slope Manager Abhishek Kumar.

The unprecedented rains that wreaked havoc in Himachal Pradesh from July 9-13 ruined the roads between Manali and Shukto. This is why the trek was on a pause.

During the deluge, several landslides along the way resulted in many cracks and boulders on the road. Now, all these have been repaired and cleared. And the Miyar Valley trek is back on schedule.

As per the itinerary, the team will stay at Shukto tonight. They will start trekking towards Miyar Valley early tomorrow morning.

Our teams are constantly updating us about the situation in Himachal Pradesh. We’ll keep posting all relevant updates here.
