Reaching at Bharatpur could be an adventure itself as you pass through green valleys of Manali by crossing over the Rohtang Pass to arid and rugged land of Lahoul and Spiti. The peak is attempted from north Face moving slightly towards the East direction to make way to the summit. The route to the camp is significantly steep loaded with scree which makes the path more risky and challenging. The route is mixed with snow tracks, scree and heaps of sharp loose rocks. On our way to the base camp and further, a number of streams will cut the path across and can cause a major obstacle. So these deadly streams need to be crossed as earlier as the glaciers melt. After base treading on the trail becomes rigorous as we head towards the peak. Freezing breeze hits hard on one’s body at the higher altitudes, so one has to walk moderately to avoid slipping on scree. At the higher altitude of the trek, it has the potential of deadly challenge due to unpredictable weather conditions and expected physical confrontation. The air also gets thinner as the altitude rises and one might encounter acute mountain sickness. The last section of the peak is pretty steep, so one has to be careful while inclining and declining on the snow. The summit of Yunam has a great view point for an exceptional sight of the C.B. Range and Mulkilla Range, the summit also offers a magnificent view of Chandra Bhaga range and cold deserts of Lahaul valley.

The Chanderkhani Pass trek is done all year in any season. But the trek done in winter has a different charm and experience. In winter the trek offers great views of snow laden forests, mountains, meadows, peaks like Inderasan, Deo Tibba, Hanuman Tibba and some prominent ranges such as Bara Banghal Range, Pir Panjal Range, Priyadarshini range. This trek can be done by anyone, even those who have less or never been to the mountains. The trek starts from Naggar, located on the left bank of the river Beas, at 1700m., an ancient town and former capital of Kullu (till 1460 AD) . The valley holds rich culture, traditional houses, great temples and beautiful locations all across the region. One can enjoy visiting Art gallery, Naggar Castle and many other places in the surrounding. Situated in the middle of the Kullu Manali valley Naggar is approachable even in the heavy snowfalls too. In winter the snowfall turns this valley into heaven. The trail for Chanderkhani Pass actually starts from the Rumsu village. Rumsu is an ancient village just few km’s above Naggar. The trail to the pass passes through in the middle of the village. The temples in the village have beautiful intricate carvings. Houses made with wood and stone are interesting to see the rural architecture. The huge Deodar trees can be seen in the middle of Rumsu village. These trees are sited in the surrounding of the temple, are meant to be sacred and holy trees as believed in the whole valley. These trees are so huge that it takes a bunch of people to circle or hold it around. Going further from Rumsu the trail brings us to the initial uphill through the forest. The trail till the campsite is full with dense forests of Deodar, Pine, Fir and Oak trees. One can encounter huge trees of horse chestnut en route too. While climbing up we reach at the place called Stelling, a pastoral meadow which normally is covered with snow in winter. Have lunch and spend some time at Stelling cause further on the snowy trail will start. The conditions and the ratio of snowfall will decide the beginning of snow trail. It could start from the woods above Rumsu village or further up from Stelling or below. So snow will appear somehow on the trail sooner or later. Treading on the snow is not easy as beautiful it looks in a picture. Though walk slowly and steadily that you won’t slip or fall. Few ups and downs then we reach at Ghon Kradi. Our first day s camp at Ghon Kradi, is mainly a little meadow with huge trees all around and abandoned shepherds shelter. ‘Ghon-Kradi’ in the local dialect means ‘Hammer and the Axe’. It is one of the places from where locals used to collect wood for winter. A bonn fire is appropriate on such chilly temperature in the evening. So spend a beautiful night with lighting up the camp fire at Ghon Kradi. After Ghon Kradi an enchanting trail to Naya Tapru will continue. The route to Naya Tapru consists of great snow, as great that trees and its branches are almost immersed and wrapped inside snow. Some smaller trees and a lot more vegetation is seen lost under the great snow. Walking on the deep snow could be a challenge, but with strong will and endurance one can easily pass these obstacles. As you go up the trail, the whole of the Beas valley opens up to you. You begin to see the Dhauladar Range beyond the Beas valley in all its snowcapped glory. The terrain leading uphill is slightly steep on just below the Naya Tapru (9,970ft). However the scenic beauty around would make one to forget fatigue and discomfort. At naya tapru you can have soothing views of most of the Himalayan ranges from a great distance. After spending quality time at Naya Tapru we head back towards the campsite at Ghon Kradi. One should reach the camp by the late afternoon. Stay another wonderful night at Ghon Kradi making Bonn fire on the snow. Next day climb down to roadhead following the same route till Rumsu.
