1. Triund Hill Trek
This brief day tour begins at McLeodganj, 9 miles via well-defined paths up to Triund Hill. You may choose any route from Rawa, Dal Lake, Dharamkot, and Bhagsu as all the ways converge in Galu Devta (2130 m). A tiny temple, some guest homes, and teashops are located there. From here, the footpath views a forest ridge overlooking Dharamshala and the verdant valleys of Kangra. Dollops of crimson were splashed on the pathway between May and June. You pass a mountain creek, over which the progressive ascent steeps and crosses a clump of trees at the top of Triund Hill. The region’s avian life is rich.
2. Kareri Lake Trek
Kareri Lake trek is an elliptical glacial lake in the Dhauladhar Ranges that is a fantastic place for a long weekend. The tour starts from McLeodganj via heavy forests and pastures, reaches Dal Lake, a beautiful lake surrounded by trees of deodar and rhododendrons. The Hindu month of Bhadon (August/September) hosts an annual fair. Through forests, and via a wooden bridge across the Gaj river to Ghera we walk farther to Satobheri. You can also drive to Ghera, instead. You’ll be taken to Kareri Village by a difficult trek from Ghera. A further 13 kilometers southeast of the settlement is Kareri Lake.
3. Bhrigu Lake Trek
The Bhrigu Lake lights up dazzling blue under clear summer skies, east of the Rohtang Pass. Its name comes from the legendary Saint Bhrigu, one of the Saptarishi, who, as he penned the Bhrigu Samhita, is claimed to have meditated on that lake. A 22 kilometer trip from Manali starts in Gulaba. The path crosses deep forests of silver oaks, cedars, and birch trees and now and then opens to rivulets of grassland. The high peaks of Hanuman Tibba and the seven peaks of the Beas Kund Valley are located in the background. We shall cross over to Rola Kholi at the base of the Bhrigu Lake, the milky white Kolang Nala.
4. Beas Kund Trek
The Beas Kund Trek is one of the greatest short treks near the river Manali. From Dhundi to Solang Valley, 8 miles by road you start your walk. This is the location for the 8.8 kilometer Rohtang Tunnel. Follow the beautiful path to Bakar Thach, a magnificent wild flora-covered meadow, with the neighboring Beas River rushing. The beautiful peaks of Indrasen and Deo Tibba are rising behind you. Manali is setting up its training camp here in summer at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountain and Allied Sports. The flat meadows finally lead to boulder fields and moraines and take the steep path along the left side of the river and up the ridge.

5. Malana Chanderkhani Pass Trek
It is notable because of the Malana cream, one of the greatest marijuana in the world, as one of the oldest democracies in the world. The community has a distinct architecture and language, and one of its types is its judicial and administrative institutions. The Malans are descendants of the army of Alexander the Great. When an outsider, people, or buildings touch anything in this place they must pay a heavy fee for cleansing procedures. The Chanderkhani Pass is accessible to Malana. Naggar will take you on the real trek from a 21 kilometer trip from Manali.
6. Hatu Peak Trek
A day trip from Narkanda 63 miles from Shimla is another Hatu Peak trek. You will come across new, undiscovered snow when you try in the first few weeks of March. You will start from Narkanda on the route to Thanedar until you arrive at a three-way crossing in a clearing surrounded by the pine woods. The path snakes along the mountain, the undergrowth is sometimes moist and thick, while the sun is filtered through the leaves. Three kilometers later you can see the snow-covered in a larger Himalayas, and continue in a clearing with a few shepherd cottages and a tiny pool that reflects the blue skies and the white summits.
7. Jalsu Pass Trek
One of the easier hiking travels in Dhauladhars is the Jalsu Pass Trek. The high Ravi Valley is connected to Kangra. It begins at Holi, a separate sub valley of Bharmor, and concludes in Badrinath. The walk starts at Bharmour. The trekking trail starts at Nayagram, a 12 km drive from Holi. Down into the village and up to the revered Laka Mata (3km) shrine via the forests of pine and deodar, the hike descends sharply to the wooden bridge on the Channi meadows, and then upwards to Surahi village.
8. Kheer Ganga Trek
The Parvati Valley offers the best walking possibilities in Himachal, a beautiful green valley surrounded by the lofty Himalayas. A 30-kilometer trip takes you to Kasol, one of yesteryear’s most important hippies. The river Kasol is full of trout and fishing here is very popular. We’re going to Barshaini from Kasol, the confluence between Parvati and Tosh Rivers, and then Tosh (15 km). The Tosh trip frequently takes place on marijuana plants. An 8-kilometer walk will take us to the Kheer Ganga springs past Nathan Village and Rudra Nag Temple. Apples and apricots are on their way to orchards.
