Detailed Itinerary

Day 1- Today the trekkers will assemble in Manali for various permissions in order to go on further. The Friendship peak is counted as a Trekking peak by the IMF. According to a new process proposed by IMF in the Manali region, the trekkers have to provide intimation along with xerox of ID proofs of all the candidates and staff. IMF has established a regional office in Manali for trekking in the upper Himalayan stretches. Once you have a receipt on this intimation from the IMF regional office, you need 2 more permits, 1 from BRO and another from SDM. These two permits are required for using a vehicle on the road of Solang Nala & Dhundi. 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 4 - Today, you will ferry your summit loads to Camp 1. This will serve you with acclimatization objectives. You will spend some time at Camp 1 and then return to ABC in the evening.

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.

Day 7 - This day is a reserve day for a second attempt to the summit only if the weather conditions are not in our favor.

Day 8 - Today you will set up your way back to Dhundi from Basecamp and then to Manali.

Duh, yes! Atmanirbhar Indians do it all. Hence, it is necessary.

We suggest you to be safe at this time and use your own vehicle to reach the destination. If necessary, we can also arrange for a fully sanitised taxi from the pickup point to the property and back.

Umm, unfortunately no! This is only for yours and traveller’s safety. Get back to us when things are normal.

Not a lot but, hard copies of ICMR approved COVID RT-PCR negative test report, the E-permit pass for the state you’re travelling to, original address proof and govt. issued ID proof are the only ones.

In that case, these are the two choices you have for yourself.
  • You can simply cancel the bookings for staying in the property and get back to your home. We would give full refund in this case.
  • You can undergo the quarantine period as said by the local authorities and resume the stay at the property. You would be charged only for the amount you are going to stay there.

Things are really uncertain at this point of time and it will not be a surprise if this happens. So, we will refund your entire amount and you will have to go back to your home.

In this case, we would suggest you to get checked at the nearest COVID centre labs around you. If you are found positive, you’ll have to undergo institutional quarantine and have to follow all the government regulations and guidelines. If you are found negative, you can resume staying in the booked property.

Our recommendation would be more than 7 nights. This is to minimise the overall influx of people entering and exiting state borders in short intervals.

Just draft an email and send it to your stay coordinator. You can write in the mail the later dates for which you want to book your stay and your stays will be postponed.

  • To begin with, we are checking all the mandatory health reports and making a file of it
  • We are checking the travel history of the travellers
  • We are not taking anyone who shows even the slightest possibility of cough, cold, or any other symptom
  • The properties are well sanitised
  • We are involving minimal human interaction
  • We are taking extra care of sanitisation

It might happen in this uncertain time so you can transfer that voucher to your family members or friends to not let them get wasted.

Don’t get in TOUCH with anyone, just drop us a mail. Cool!

Nothing much, basically what you have been doing all these while.
  • Social distancing
  • Not touching anyone
  • Wearing masks
  • Washing hands and face frequently
  • Using gloves
  • Using hand sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Avoid coming in contact with someone who shows even the slightest signs of cough, cold, or fever.

Of course, but not all the time. Not when you are safe in the sanitised area. Not when you are alone. Not when you are with your closed ones who you know are safe.

Just practise social distancing, use sanitiser on hands, wear a mask, wear gloves, do not come in contact with anyone closely, take bath with soap as you end your journey, drink warm water, and wash your hands with soap.
