While it is a beautiful climb from Janglik to Dayara Thatch, with many picturesque vistas but you also gain altitude very rapidly. 

We will ascend until we arrive at a forest cover of Oak and Pine. After walking for about 30 minutes through the forest cover, you will gradually begin to descend through the forest. As you come out of Janglik, you will see beautiful wheat fields lined by mud huts on the edges of the fields and soon we will leave these mud houses behind and begin climbing uphill.

After about an hour of trekking, you will step on to a ledge from where you can see spectacular views of Janglik, Tonglu and other surrounding villages. The ledge is beautifully set beneath pine cover. We will rest here for a while, admiring the view and enjoying some refreshments. From here, the trail goes through a clearing and again ascends up into a forest. The trail is steep at the beginning but soon turns into a gradual ascend. About 30 minutes later, you will get out of the tree line and step into a vast expanse in front of you. We will turn left and climb uphill slowly getting out of the tree line. The trail here is broad and well-defined.

After about an hour, we will enter another coniferous forest cover. The trail here ascends gradually and soon we will trail out of the forest again and into the lush green meadows of Dayara, surrounded by snow-clad mountains on all sides. Our campsite for the night.

Photographers can capture some beautiful pictures of the morning rays of the sun in the vast meadows.

The trek from Dayara Thatch to Litham starts with a gentle ascent and the trail will take you through forest covers, meadows and streams. We will walk for about 15 minutes, gently ascending to a point where we will come across a stream. Ascending through forest covers of Oak and Pine, followed by a beautiful meadow we will begin descending through a silver birch forest cover and again through some lush meadows.


The entire trail is full of forest covers and meadows as well as some gushing streams, ample opportunities to refill your water bottles. Crossing the meadows we will trek towards the Guna Pass. A gentle ascent takes you to another forest cover and completely out of the Dayara campsite. We will cross a stream post which the  trail climbs out of the thickets, with the Dhauladhar Range and Guna Pass coming into view.

Soon, we will come inside another forest of the Silver Birch trees. The silver birches are very old and you can see these ancient structures gnarled and majestic standing the test of time. Descending from the forest, you will come across another stream and the first clear views of Litham.

It is a 6 km trek from Litham to Chandranahan Lake and back and you will get a lot of opportunities to click some stunning pictures. 

The glacial lake of Chandranahan is fed by the mountains surrounding it. To reach the lake, we will cross the stream just before the Litham campsite and continue walking in an upstream direction until we reach the top of the ridge. From here, walk towards the snout of the waterfall. This is where the lake emerges. The walk to the snout takes about an hour and a half and the lake site is marked by stone cairns.

Many small waterfalls cascade down to the lake from all sides. You can spend some time here, absorbing the serenity and clicking some beautiful pictures. We will then head back to Litham in the same way that we came. We will have lunch at Litham and spend the rest of the day here and stay the night at camps.


You will also get good amount of snow in the month of June. As you reach the lake you will notice that the lake is a bit smaller in size and is fed by the snowfields around it.

The trail takes a sharp acsent as you continue along the banks of the Pabbar River, which is now a gushing stream. Soon you will arrive at a U-shaped gorge and get your first views of the Buran Ghati Pass. Take a moment to relish sight before moving onward.

The climb to Dunda follows a well-defined trail and after about an hour’s climb you will arrive at the Dunda Ridge with spectacular views of Buran Ghati. The campsite is surrounded by snow-clad mountains on all sides. This is just the perfect alpine campsite with snowy mountains on all sides.

Once you reach the top, enjoy the enthralling views and while descending, it can be pretty risky to climb down without using ropes. It’s a very narrow ledge with steep drops on both sides. Follow your trek leaders’ instructions while descending.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.

2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.

3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.

4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.

5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.
