Overview

Deo Tibba base camp is a pleasant trek to the base camp of Deo Tibba peak and an introductory glance at the beautiful Himalayas in the Manali region. The trek begins at the village of Jagatsukh, which is 6 km from the town of Manali. The trail ascends up the valley alongside the Jagatsukh nala, a pristine Himalayan stream where a hydroelectric plant is being established. We continue to follow the stream to high meadows and pasture lands at Chikka. The climb up the valley continues until one reaches the large flat pastures at Seri, surrounded by the lesser peaks of the region. The first glimpse of Deo Tibba can be seen from here. After crossing Jagatsukh nala a couple of times, and passing the Tenta waterfall on a nearby ridge, one reaches the base camp of Deo Tibba. The high altitude becomes evident as snowfields are in sight everywhere from here onwards. Further ascent brings us to the moon-shaped lake called Chota Chandratal which is the source of the stream. The establishment of the hydroelectric project has extended the motorable road up to Jobra Nalla and this shortens the length of the trek by one day. The trek is one of the easiest ones to get accustomed to the pleasures of trekking in the Himalayan ranges. The vast meadows at Serai (formerly a glacier) and Tenta are some of the most enthralling places to spend time at. This is a spectacular view that haunts every trekker giving a unique experience. During the spring season the valley gets covered with green and the variety of flora, and bird species is a absolute treat to the nature lovers.
