For the primary few miles you will trail under a forest cover and bathing within the shade of rustling conifers you'll easily spot oaks, cedar, and birches. It’s a lovely sight to catch the beauty of blue through these leaves.
Walking for 20 minutes into the trek, and then the forest has now ebbed behind, unfolding only rolling green meadows before. This is the shepherds’ zone where cattle grazers are brought from the local villages during summer. You'll find a couple of mud huts and camp poles lying here. Keep the meadow behind and begin heading south. You'll find the height of Hanuman Tibba rising in sharp focus at now and a touch below, the Seven sisters Peaks. Lying somewhere far below is the green patch of Beas Kund valley.
Next comes another slight jungle cover, passing through the trail falls on to the rugged meadows again. The joys climax when the trail gets narrower and steeper just before entering the grasslands of Rola Kholi. At about fifteen to twenty minutes faraway from the campsite, you will pass two small streams which also are your water sources. Your camp is near chor nallah(stream) at the Rola Kholi campsite.
