One can see the full view of Manali town and upper Kullu valley. Continue going upward through brilliant shrubs of Rhododendron, Birch pave on the way, and wildflowers all around.

"Great professional team work. Team took special care of the needs of my children. Their first trek and camping experience was very good. They loved it. Thanks for doing a great job there. The food items were well prepared and the daily lunch box was always different, giving us a variety. I would always recommend Potala Adventurers to my friends. Great job. Keep up the good work ."
