Situated in Beas Kund area of Pir Panjal range at an altitude of 5289m, Friendship peak is an ideal non-technical trekking peak for those with limited or no mountaineering experience but requires good fitness. Surrounded by several other peaks like Hanuman Tibba, Shetidhar,Indra Asan and Deo Tibba. The summit of the Friendship peak offers spectacular panoramic views of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges.
Drive to Solang by a taxi. From solang to dhundi moderate walk. Easy walk through the forest of Pine, Maple, Walnut, Silver fir and Oak. From Dhundi to Bakar thach is a highland meadow, a leisurely walk of 2-3 hours will lead to the Beas Kund. We set up our base camp around or above the lake. Spend the following day around the camp practicing movement on snow and ice. Get familiar with the use of your equipment. Learn the techniques and how to arrest a fall on the slope. Wake up early in the morning and after a quick bite get ready for the climb up to the summit. It’s best to be up at the summit early in the morning to make the best of the weather and get good views. At the summit one can see in the west of Dhundi the highest mountain of the Dhauladhar Mt. Hanuman Tibba 5940 m. is erected, on the east Deo Tibba 6001 m, and Indra Asan 6100 m. can be seen if the weather is in your favor. Once Friendship peak is summated at 5394m., Descend down to the base camp. Next morning start to Dhundi, the roadhead and drive back to Manali. Overnight hotel in Manali.
