If you are unable to achieve this you'll hike from Solang Nala to Dhundi which is a 7 Km walk on the road along the River.
Day 2 - Today, you will reach Dhundi. The trek is quite easy today with a steady ascending trail. You will cross 3-4 fixed camps in Dhundi where “sailanis” are visible around the year. Initially, the trail is on the left side of the Beas River that flows alongside through the day. Soon, you will cross a wooden bridge without any “railings”. The bridge is exciting and lovely. From here, you will walk through the lush green trail on the right side of the Beas River. During May and June, you can spot some snow on the ridges. As you are nearby Bakkarthatch, you will come across 2-3 small streams of tributaries of the main river. After lunch, you will start setting up your base camp here.
Day 3 - Today you will start early morning to reach ABC early for camping and to learn about Snowcraft here. Post breakfast, you'll reach the camp early enough, around 11.30 am. You will now set up the camps here for yourselves and take a small rest for a couple of hours. If the weather allows in the afternoon, then you will move forward to snow stretches in front of the campsite for your Snowcraft. You will learn critical things today such as ascending and descending on heavy snow, Using Ice ax for temporary use, roping and many such acts to help yourself during the trek.

Day 5 - The day will start with practicing some stuff in order to make your body fit for the trek. You will step towards the Summit Camp in the afternoon. The hike is very short till the Summit Camp where tents will set up. You will go a bit higher from the large bum where you will set your Summit camp for acclimatization and come back to rest at the Summit Camp. Summit Camp may set up higher if snow is less.
Day 6 - Today is the day for which you planned everything so far. You will pack yourself with all the necessary stuff needed for the day. From your summit camp, you will move on to the default side. You will walk with the shoulder of the peak. The texture of the climb is steep and roping up or fixing rope will not be required. If you will climb in the month of May, then crampons will be needed on this patch only till the shoulder. The climb till here will take 4-5hours and the morning will take place. The Summit trail from the shoulder is vertical. You can't go zig-zag as the patch is full of crevasses. After climbing for another 2 to 3 hours, one would reach the Solo Summit. You would take a small diversion towards the north and after 30 minutes of climbing, you reach a black rock. Summit is near here. You will reach the summit by 10 am. Here, you can enjoy the moment after your hard labor. Descending early is necessary because the way is long. If the snow gets slushy then descent will become difficult. When you climb down, fix and roping is needed. As you reach Summit Camp, you'll gather your breath and have some quick bites. You will wrap up everything and move towards ABC.
