Want to enjoy the pristine Himalayan wilderness and have a memorable trekking experience which takes you on a different tangent altogether?
Welcome to SHIRGAN–TUNGU Base Trek (A group of gigantic folded mountain valleys). We promise you the best of experience, the likes of which you will never have encountered before.
This exotic and immensely rewarding trek encompasses the mountainous vistas of the divinely beautiful Kullu & Manali valley and beyond Pirpanjal valleys and traverses the high altitude passes of ‘Chhoye Pande’; meaning at the top solid heap of rocks of lateral moraine. Couple of Saur (Lake) and over (4450 m) passes to Malana Village accompanies this mountaineering base of Shirgan-Tungu.
The crowning glory of this particular trek is that it proceeds through totally un-spoilt regions of the Himalayas where you can see some of the last remaining bastions of great abode of snows.  Here you can trek for weeks without coming across any human habitation, these regions (thankfully) still belong to the elusive Himalayan brown bear. The region is rich in flora and fauna which is a delight for a naturalist & also provides unparalleled opportunities for photographers.
