Starting from Manikaran, we take a jeep ride to the village call Bersani and further down to the brige where there is a hydro electric project under construction. From here we start our hike to Khir ganga which is a place of Sulfur spring. It can take us 4-5 hours to get there through local villages and nice deodar forest.
From the camp there is a steady ascent out of the gorge. The valley then widens and the trail crosses several delightful pastures supporting a variety of wildflowers in the summer.

Most of the walk of today is a gradual ascent except last part of 200m climb to reach Mantalai. Mantalai is a source of Parwati River and also a pilgrimage for local people of the area. Average walking time is 5 to 6 hours.
It is a day to relax and acclimatize with the altitude.
It is a 300 m climb out of the main valley floor to the high camp. The climb affords a bird’s eye view of the Parwati valley, and directly below, the Parwati River Gushes out of the main Glacier. The peaks on the far side of the valley also come in to full view-including Pyramid peak (6036m), Snow Peak (5640m) and the unnamed peak (6127m),the highest in the region. There are magnificent views of the surrounding peaks from the high camp including those on the far side of the Parwati Valley. Average walking time is 6 – 7 hours.
From the high camp, there is a steep 200m ascent over the boulders to a large snow field below the Passover .In the pass there is alpine view to the snow-capped ranges towards the Kullu Valley contrasting with the barren mountain ridges. The descent from the pass to grassy camp site is gradual over the snow field and steep on rocky trail. After reaching the base at Pin River, trail is pretty easy with gradual ups and downs and few side streams crossings. To reach our camp site, the walk will include few side streams crossings. Average walking time is 6-7 hours.
Totally different view in this valley compared to Parwati valley. There are some side streams to cross .Camp site of Mud is just before the main village and average walking time is 6 to 7 hours.
