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.
