Itinerary

Day 0Delhi to Shimla

We will all meet at Himachal Bhavan, Safdar Hashmi Marg, Delhi at 1900hrs and board the Volvo bus to Shimla.

Day 1Shimla to Chindi

We arrive at Shimla early morning at 6:00 AM and check into our hotel for freshening up and a quick breakfast at 8:00AM.

Start the ride at 9:30AM. The route holds thick woods where practically every tree of the region grows – Himalayan Cedar (the almost legendary ‘Deodar’), Spruce, Oak, Rhododendron, Horse-Chestnut, Birch and Pine. Depending on the time of year, a variety of wildflowers grace the hillsides.

We cycle past Mashobra and descend 16 kms to Thaila and a further 6km to Gumma, a thrilling 22kms downhill ride, thereafter the road flattens out till Basantpur and Tattapani. We get into our support vehicles here and drive the remaining 35kms to Chindi.

DAY 02Chindi

Welcome to Chindi (1850mts, 6070ft), a small hamlet dotted with apple orchards and a dense forest cover, at the base of Shikari Devi.

Our first stage of the hike starts after breakfast from Chindi and slowly we are ascending through a well-defined trail and gaining elevation, stepping up to the ridgeline and reaching Shikari Devi temple (2850mts, 9350ft) after a challenging 22kms.

After a relaxed session of late afternoon/early evening session of photography we descend 500 stairs and hop onto our waiting support vehicles to drive to Jhanjehli. Overnight Hotel.

Day 3Jhanjehli to Bagsad

Start early morning after breakfast and ride through the valley towards Bagsad about 25 kms from the hamlet of Jhanjehli. Another 8kms to Kandi pass and 20kms of descent brings us to Pandoh. From Pandoh a steep jeep track ascends to Parashar Lake. We camp before the lake on the sprawling meadows or near the forest rest house.

Day 04Parashar Lake

Early morning breakfast and we bid adieu to Parashar Lake, zipping downhill towards Kataula from where it is another 8kms of climbing towards Kandidhar and another 23kms to Bajaura, where we finish our ride. Take the Volvo back home from here.
