Drive to Sojha from Chandigarh via Kiratpur sahib and Mandi. We will reached Sojha in the evening. After check in, rest of the evening at leisure. Sojha is a breathtakingly beautiful place Located in Seraj valley,. The mornings in Shoja are particularly invigorating. One can just stroll around, walk up to the meadows or perhaps take the pathway into the jungle. Nature lovers can enjoy thick wooded hill slopes starting from bottom as far down or up or sideways or deep as one can look. One can see the great snow clad peaks beyond the tree line and some great cloud formations. 

raghupur fortDay 02: Sojha – Raghupur fort excursion
The best way to enjoy the hills is to wake up early in the morning. Early mornings also offer excellent photo opportunities.  After breakfast, we leave for a hike to Raghupur fort. An early start, especially if you are a photography buff, is recommended. Walk through the Oaks and Rhododendrons forest. A little while later, the tree line finishes and we move into a lush green meadow. A little up and we are rewarded with a 360 degrees view of The Himalayas, Dhauladhar and Kinnaur ranges, all of them in one sweeping glance. Keep strolling and in a while we end up at the dilapidated Raghupur Fort.

The local people believe that an erstwhile king of Mandi province got this fort constructed hundred of years ago. The King could not have chosen a better location. All around you are swathes of lush green meadows that gently descend into the oak and blue fir forests. Drive back to retreat for lunch. Rest of the day at leisure. Evening around a bonfire. Night stay in rooms.

sangla, kinnaurDay 3: Sojha – Sangla ( 7 hrs. )

For six months every year, the Himalayan valleys of Kinnaur and Spiti emerge from a thick cloak of snow to reveal a different, secret world to man. Sangla is surrounded by towering mountains on all sides and is set on the banks of the Baspa River that surges through the valley. Long walks to discover the amazing fauna and flora of the valley, treks to view snow covered Himalayan peaks, angling for trout, experiencing some of the local culture and traditions, River crossing, rock climbing and rappelling are some of the delights that are on offer.

chitkulDay 04: Sangla to Chitkul
There is not a better conception of a day picnic than a short drive to Chitkul, walk to Nagasthi and opening the lunch hamper under the pine trees next to a rivulet on green grass looking at the beautiful expanse of the valley. Nagasthi is the last border outpost and short walk from Chitkul. Civilians are not allowed beyond this point. The walk is a level one and slightly going down the path through a pastureland and fields overlooking the freely flowing Baspa. . Back in the camp by late afternoon to rest and relax and be ready for the evening tea.Option river crossing activity in the afternoon. Night stay in tents.

Day 05: Sangla- Rakcham walk ( 4-5 Hrs. )
We highly recommend this walk.It is a 4-5 hours walk through the forest to Rakcham village. This route was once used regularly by the villagers from Batseri to go to Rakcham and vice versa. It is a fascinating walk through a wide variety of flora. If the trek is done before July, one also gets to cross two tails of glaciers coming from the top to meet the frisky Baspa.  Arrive back at camp by noon for a hot shower and lunch.

thanedarDay 6: Sangla to Thanedar ( 6 hrs. )
We retrace our route today. Drive back towards Sainj where we turn towards Thanedar. Thanedhar region enjoys a special place in Himachal history.
