Some of the best places that we need to travel are hidden under their own folds, likewise, we found Tilgan. Its the kind of location which not even exists on Google Maps, that’s for sure. 

Tilgan is a grassy sloppy piece of land located in the mid of Himalayan region near Manali. It took us 5 Hrs to reach this place from Jagatsukh Village. But when we reached here, we found the peace. Natural Sanctuary of Tilgan is truly something. Covered with timberlands from all directions. Displaying the gigantic mountain views. Crossing paths with a lot of streams. This place is what we need to escape from the world.

The trek to this wonderland was also one of the best we had in a while. Its not like something you go in alone. Trek to Tilgan, ways from villages, local residences, grazing animals in the woods – things that bring colors to the journey.

These are the things that generates some emotions in the way. And with courtesy to our trek guide we had 2 great dogs, that accompanied us while the trek.

After this experience, our company has decided to customize a new trek to “The Tilgan Trek”, which will be a 2 day exploration. The weekend trek, which will be released in the year 2019.” Let’s hope that goes well.

The things which will be promised by the trek will be – Trekking, Camping, Nature Sightseeing, Forest Walk, Bonfire, Food, and Memories. As for now, our team is working to craft this trek more effective to replace the old terrains of Himachal Pradesh.

The past week was one of the great time that I have spent in my life. It was truly an honour to host such a wonderful spirit on an extraordinary trekking trip which ended with a lot of memories. The Hamta pass trek exploration was one of the finest treks in India and it is most engaging when we travel with a lot of smiling people around us.

Our journey started on 26th May 2018 at around 10’o Clock from Jaipur, after which we proceed to Into Wild Himalayas Camps in Kalath Manali. That was an exhausting 20 hrs road journey which was completed in the vehicles provided by Jaipur Tempo Traveller. We made our journey in a Force Tempo Traveller which was equipped with music system and Mobile chargers which assisted us in completing this long route with a sweet atmosphere.

In during the journey, our group made themselves more friendly with each other by playing games like dumbshal arts and much more. In Journey, we had dinner on 26th and followed by a Dahi-Parantha Breakfast on the land of Punjab which was again an exciting activity for our travellers.

When we reached the base camp in Kalath, Manali, our camps were literally located in the wild Himalayas. The base camp was situated nearby the river Beas and the greenery near the camps is one of the best things one can use to decorate his land. Everyone was thrilled to see this land and find themselves more attached to the location with all these wonderful views of nature.

On the next day, we started trekking to our first stoppage that was Tilgan, which is placed in near mountain range for which we have to walk for at least 6 hrs and after which we relaxed our muscles by following some exercises. In during the trek, we rested on rocks and had our lunch which was carried by us. The night was something fascinating and full of moonlight, under which we had our dinner and sat nearby a bonfire.

On 29th May our journey continues with a hard trekking route crossing some waterfalls and green lands after which we reached our destination Saruto, where we camped for two consecutive nights. The place is chilled and one can see glorious mountains covered with Ice, standing tall and unbeatable.

On 30th May our trek was somewhat longer than combined previous days so we moved early in the morning. We trekked about 6 hrs to the top and 4 hrs to the base sight on the same day. We played with Ice on the rocky tops and captured the real beauty of the mountains there. Our whole group enjoyed a lot in the sloppy floppy ice on those Rocky mountains. After a memorable time on the ice, we get departed to our campsite on Saruto, where we had our dinner and get rest for final departure.

On the last day of the trek, we packed our luggage and started downhill walk to the base camp. It took us around 10 hrs to reach the base camp. We enjoyed our last night with a little wine and beer with the musical surrounding. Also, we added our memories with bonfire and activities like Truth, Dare, and Situation (Another Classic).

Finally, we departed to our City “Jaipur”, with Happy memories.
