Category of Trek: Moderate Level
(First-time participants are also welcome on this moderate trek, and while prior trekking experience is beneficial, it requires participants to possess a certain level of physical fitness)

This trek is for those who enjoy mountain vistas and want to see them from places that can't be accessed by road and vehicles. Shirgan Tungu, the rocky mountain standing tall over the folded mountain valleys of the Himalayas, is a trekker's delight. Connect with nature at a primal level, as you trek to one of the least-explored places in the great mountains. With breathtaking views of the scenic Kullu valley and Manali region and the peaks of the Pir-Panjal range towering over the Beas river, Shirgan Tungu is the perfect high-altitude adventure.

Feast your eyes on the abundant flora and fauna of the region as you test your endurance, hiking to 3,800 m across lush landscapes and green meadows.

The trekking program is designed while keeping in mind the need for acclimatization to high altitudes. All the camps are well equipped with first aid and rescue equipment. The leaders of this trek have years of experience leading treks at high altitudes.

Shirgan Tungu is all you can ask of a Himalayan trek - challenging, mesmerising, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring!
