Reigning at a staggering altitude of 5,860 meters, Hanuman Tibba is a peak that dominates the Solang Valley in Manali. Gracing the vast Pir Panjal Range, the Hanuman Tibba trek is fairly popular amongst pro trekkers and mountaineers, given the difficulty of its trails. The popularity of this particular trek can also be attributed to the fact that it is included in the mountaineering training of advance students of Manali’s Western Himalayan Mountaineering Institute! The trek also brings you close to the Beas Kund glacier skirting the summit. The trek demands relentless determination and stamina, sure, but brings impressive rewards in the form of sweeping, panoramic views of the mighty Himalayan neighbours. The trek stems from Solang valley, and meanders through Dhundi and Beas Kund river and glacier. If your physical fitness is up to scratch, you can consider the Hanuman Tibba trek as a first hand experience of the mountaineering world!

Whom is the trek for?
The Hanuman Tibba trek is a technical one and climbs up to 5,932 meters. The challenging level of the trek combined with extreme high altitude demands rigorous physical fitness, endurance, and stamina, along with proper acclimatization. Only fit mountaineers who have scaled heights of at least 4,500 to 5,000 meters should undertake this expedition.
Which season should the trek be attempted in?
The months of June, July, and September are ideal for the trek. Monsoons should be avoided, as should winters, as it becomes difficult to identify crevasses due to high accumulation of snow.
What are the weather conditions that can be expected during the trek?
During the months of summer, the temperature averages somewhere between 15 to 18 degrees in the daytime, while it can dip as low as -15 degrees at night beyond a certain altitude. Post monsoons, the temperature dips further, especially at a higher altitude.
What things are needed to be carried?
Rucksack, high ankle trekking shoes, one fleece jacket, one down feather / hollofil jacket, 3 pairs of quick dry T-shirts and trek pants, 5-6 pairs of socks, balaclava, a daypack, sunscreen SPF 50+, scarf, towel, lip balm, headlamp / torch, 2 water bottles of 1 litre, and personal medicines.
