TREK TO LAMA DUGH
Packed with snow and a myriad of bird life early on in the season, the Lamadugh trek is an ideal trek to introduce oneself to the undeniable allure of trekking. The trek is the perfect activity for a day spent outdoors and for escaping the crowds that Manali attracts.
Gaining a height of over 3200ft in 5 hours, the Lamadugh trek takes us through ever-changing vistas. Starting from the famous Hadimba Temple, the trail winds through Pine, Oak, Horse Chestnut, Maple, and Cedar forests to come to picturesque glades with sweeping views of Manali, the Manalsu glacier, the Dhauladhar and Pirpanjal ranges including Hanuman Tibba, Deo Tibba and Rohtang Pass.

peaks of Bara Shigri glacier open up.
