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!
