Mountaineering
Peaks in Kullu valley offer challenging playground for Indian and International expeditions as well. With an average altitude of 5,000 to 6,000 meters, these peaks have been tried by experienced mountaineers from all over the world. The large number of virgin peaks, easy access to base camps and the affordability of local expeditions have made Kullu & Manali Himalayas a good value for many mountain climbers.

Kullu and Manali have produced some world class climbers like Dicky Dolma, a woman living in Manali, who climbed Mount Everest at the age of 19 years. Other well known climbers include Col. Prem Chand, Radha Devi or Deepu Sharma. These people have made history and reserved a place of fame for Manali in the international mountaineering scene. The Beas Kund region, the lower ridges of Hanuman Tibba (5930m) and Deo Tibba (6001m) are suggested areas for beginners.Beas Kund, Chandratal and Malana glaciers are the most popular among ice climbers.

DAY 3 : Drive to UDEYPUR and TRILOKNATH Temple
The Temple of Triloknath is situated near Adet about 50 km from Keylong and easily approachable by road. Dedicated to Mrikula Devi, it was constructed during the 15th century by the king of Chamba. Originally a Hindu architecture with fine wooden carvings it looks like being created by the same architect who did the Hadimba temple in Manali. It was later converted to Buddhism by installing a statue of Phagpa Chrinzik. The legend tells that Guru Padma Sambhava also visited the temple as well as the Pandavas of the Mahabharatha who have spent here some days during their 14 years exile. The temple is thus very sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists and many pilgrims from all over India visit it every year.
