HANUMAN TIBBA EXPEDITION
In the Pir Panjal Range near Manali, Mt. Hanuman Tibba, at 5932 metres, is one of the most thrilling Himalayan peaks to summit. The trail to this pyramid-shaped peak passes through Solang Valley’s majestic alpine meadows, Beas Kund’s glaciers and rivers, and finally the formidable Tentu Pass, providing breathtaking and varied scenery along the trek. This expedition is for those who want to reach their boundaries and go beyond daily trekking, but only those with previous trekking experience, as the Hanuman Tibba expedition is no small feat, requiring technical climbing and a high degree of fitness to complete.

Day 1: Manali Arrival
The squad will arrive in Manali by 11 a.m. today. The day is crucial not just because we’ll be able to acclimate, but also because we’ll need to gather as a team to obtain some expedition permits. Despite the fact that Mt. Hanuman Tibba is identified as a trekking peak by IMF, the current procedure developed by IMF in the Manali area requires the team to include an intimation as well as copies of all participants’ and guide’s ID proofs. For trekking in the upper Himalayan stretches, the IMF has established a regional office in Manali. We’ll require two more licenses, one from BRO and the other from SDM, once we receive this intimation from the IMF regional office.
Day 2: From Manali towards Dhundi to Bakkarthatch
Today, we leave early in the morning in a car for Dhundi, arriving at 8 a.m. Today, mules will transport our common luggage and rations to Bakkarthatch, where we will set up base camp. Today’s hike is relatively straightforward, with a gradual incline. In Dhundi, we pass across 3-4 fixed camps where “sailanis” should be visible during the year. The trail begins on the real left bank of the Beas River, which runs parallel to the trail during the day. We soon come to a wooden bridge with no “railings.” If you have a fear of water, this bridge maybe a little scary for you. We continue walking along the lush green path on the real right bank of the Beas River from here.
Day 3: From Bakkar Thach towards Beas Kund Glacier
We’ll resume climbing the Beas Kund Glacier after breakfast. A 300m long moraine field is reached after a short yet steep climb. A vast flatland with small boulders and streams will greet you, surrounded by massive mountain faces and hanging glaciers. We’ll set up camp at the base of Tentu Pass, a few kilometers from Beas Kund.
Day 4: From Base Camp towards Advanced Camp
Today, we’ll take the ferry to the Advanced Base Camp, which is just below the Tentu Pass, where the rest of the team will practice ice climbing on the glacier. We’ll spend the night here.
Day 5: From Advanced Camp to the Camp 1
We’ll trek up a steep slope of frozen snow today and arrive at camp 1, halfway up the mountainside, in time for our packed lunch. From now on, we’ll be sleeping in the snow. We make our way to the top of Tentu Pass, which is very steep and difficult. If and when ropes are needed, we will have to repair them. The view from the top of the pass is breathtaking, with mountains in both directions.
Day 6: From Camp 1 to the Summit Camp
Today’s hike is a long and difficult one that takes us over a continuous glacier while avoiding crevasses. We’ll set up camp at Summit Camp and prepare for the summit attempt the next day.
Day 7: From Summit Attempt to the Camp 1
We’ll try the summit after a hot cup of tea after midnight. The tops of the Dhauladar, Pir Panjal, and Greater Himalayan Ranges can all be seen from the summit. We’ll make our way back to camp 1 after the summit attempt.
Day 8: From Camp 1 to the Base Camp
We’ll load up Camp 1 and go down to Base Camp today. Tents can be used for the night.
Day 9: From Base camp towards Manali
We will trek back to Dhundi today, where our vehicles will meet you and transport you to Manali. Today is the last day with us.
