Trek to Gulam Lang from Old Manali (moderate difficulty trek, duration of 6-7 hours)

You will start this trek in Old Manali and you will along the right bank of the Manalsu River. This river has been named after Rishi Manu. The first half of the trek is quite easy, being a gradual walk. The second half, however is a bit challenging as you have to go up the hill. Enjoy the beautiful scenery on this trek, and don’t forget to stop to take photos. Do carry plenty of water with you on this trek, which is one of the best treks near Manali for beginners.

Lama Dugh Trek, which starts from Hadimba Temple (more challenging trek due to high altitude, duration of 3-4 hours)

Drive up to Hadimba temple, which in and of itself is an incredibly beautiful place to see. After you have feasted your eyes on it, and have reveled in the spiritual experience, you can start the trek. The trek will be a climb up the hill towards Lama Dugh, which is a gorgeous grazing pasture for animals. From here, you can see meadows of wildflowers, a view which looks straight out of a movie. You can also see Hanuman Tibba, Indrasan and Deo Tibba from here. Bring some snacks along to enjoy at the top.
