The Deo Tibba Base Camp trek is one of the most beautiful, offbeat treks in Himachal Pradesh. The treks begins from Jagatsukh, about 10 km away from Manali, and takes you through pristine forests, sweeping meadows, and beautiful high altitude pastures, while the majestic peak of Deo Tibba chaperones your magical journey. The trail from the Base Camp turns towards Hampta Valley, and then to Jobra, where the trek ends. This 6 days trek remains quite shaded and isolated, and not many trekkers can be found here- all the more reason for you to embark on this spectacular trek! Lose yourself amidst the mystical wilderness with nothing but expansive beauty and comfort of the Himalayas to keep you company. The highlight of the trek is the breathtaking view of Deo Tibba peak from the base camp!

- Day 1 Report to Manali; Drive to Khanol & trek to Chikka
Report to Manali early in the morning. Post breakfast and refreshments, we drive to Khanol via Jagatsukh village, which takes about an hour and a half. We begin the trek from Khanol, and follow a gradual ascending trail through a dense pine forest, which leads us to the first campsite of our trek – Chikka. Explore the campsite. Camp overnight in tents.
Altitude: 2,700 m; 3,200 m
Trek Distance: 5 km
Time Taken: 3 – 4 hrs
- Day 2 Trek from Chikka to Seri
Leaving behind the beautiful campsite of Chikka, we trail the path running beside the Jagatsukh river bank. The trail reenters the forest and is paved by beautiful wild flowers. The altitude increases noticeably, and the tree line gradually falls behind as we approach Seri, a lovely meadow which used to house a glacial lake. The campsite is crisscrossed by several streams gurgling past, with the backdrop of Tainta waterfalls. We camp here for the night in tents.
Altitude: 3,600 m
Trek Distance: 6 km
Time Taken: 4 – 5 hrs
- Day 3 Trek from Seri to Tainta
We leave behind the campsite of Seri and leave for the campsite of Tainta. The trek begins with an easy walk over a flat ground of meadows, succeeded by a stream-crossing which lands us near the Jagatsukh Nala. From here on, the trail becomes steeper, and is stretched over moraines and boulders. We soon reach our campsite, which is towered magnificently by the lofty Mt. Deo Tibba, which reveals itself for the very first time! Spend the day resting and exploring around the campsite. Camp overnight in tents.
Altitude: 3,900 m
Trek Distance: 5 km
Time Taken: 4 – 5 hrs
- Day 4 Trek from Tainta to Mini Chandratal and back
A long day. We begin early post breakfast, and carry the day’s lunch in day packs. The trail is stretched over moraines still and is chaperoned by Deo Tibba in all its splendour. The climb gets steeper and steeper, before finally giving way to a beautiful alpine lake, also nicknamed ‘mini Chandratal’. Explore around the lake, and head back to the Tainta campsite post lunch. Camp overnight at Tainta.
Altitude: 4,480 m
Trek Distance: 10 km
Time Taken: 6 – 7 hrs
- Day 5 Trek from Tainta to Chikka
We begin descending back to Chikka, following the same trail we took while ascending. The trek is quite easy. We break for lunch near Dudu Patthar, and reach Chikka. Camp overnight at Chikka.
Trek Distance: 11 km
Time Taken: 4 – 5 hours
- Day 6 Drive to Manali
The last day of our trek. Leaving Chikka behind, we reach Khanol, and board a car back to Manali. You will reach Manali by evening.
Time Taken: 4 – 5 hours
The level of this trek leans towards moderate level of difficulty, which naturally demands exceptional physical fitness, stamina and endurance. It is strongly advisable to have prior trekking experience of scaling at least 3,500 meters before you approach this trek, which means beginners should stay away. Also, proper acclimatization is key for successful completion of the trek.
The months of June, August, September, and October are perfect for the trek, as the harshness of winter is left behind, and trials clear up considerably. The temperature ranges from 10 to 15 degrees during daytime, and dips to about -2 to 5 during nights.
Fly to Bhuntar airport, the nearest one to Manali, sitting about 50 km away. Bhuntar airport is well connected to major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Kolkata.
There are really no direct trains to Manali. Reach Delhi, and then board a train to Pathankot (the trains are fairly frequent). From Pathankot, board a bus to Manali.
There are plenty of overnight HRTC buses plying between Delhi and Manali. Board one from ISBT Kashmere Gate, and a 14 hours journey will land you at Manali.
