HAMTA – CHHIKA Day Hike
Price on Request
5-6 hrs (Including the drive)
April to Mid. Nov.
For today’s day hike we will take a taxi from Manali, which will pass through Prini village and take you up through 40 hairpin bends and drop you off at Jobri. By this time you would have already gained altitude from Manali, where you will commence your trek at 2970 Meters/9800ft. This is a scenic and gentle walk through meadows and forests. The forest is mostly pine with an occasional maple tree with its new lush green leaves -a pleasant change in the vegetation. It’s an easy slope and after 20 minutes walking through the forest, you come to a bend with a huge rock overlooking a meadow strewn with small rocks. Take a photo/water break at the rock and head into the meadow. As it is an easy walk, you can decide how far you want to walk (2-4 hours approximately). The route mainly involves traversing into the valley rather than steep climbs. It is beautiful and quiet day-hike that not many know of.

Himalaya, with its pristine mountains, rivers and forests is known as the “abode of the Gods”. It is therefore our responsibility to maintain the natural glory of these mountains and make it a place of endless delight for travelers and residents alike. A few easy to follow steps will help you to contribute in making this effort a success.
1) Plastic stays: It is one of the least degradable substances, resistant to the effects of the sun, wind and rain. When you leave a plastic bag or bottle in the quiet picnic spot that you and your family enjoyed, you may very well find it there when return a few years later, an ugly spot on the landscape. The State of Himachal Pradesh has banned the used of polythene/plastic bags and you can be fined for using them, while you are in the Sate.
2) Litter: Do remember to take your litter back to the hotel or dropt it in the conveniently placed dustbins. Don’t leave it lying around.
3) Noise: One of the prime attractions of Himalaya, is the quiet of the mountains that invite you to linger. Need we say….
- Please don’t blow your vehicle horn unnecessarily or play blaring loud music as you drive.
4) Vandalism: Nature intended trees and rocks to remain unmarked by human beings. Nor were our monuments intended for graffiti written by some young wit.
- Do not scratch your name or write message on trees, rocks, mountains or monuments.
5) Respect: Please treat the mountains and the people with respect and you will be pleasantly surprised at what both can give back to you.
Last, but not the least….. Enjoy yourself with responsibility.
Leave nothing, but Footprints……
