Lamadugh Trek - Imagine yourself sitting on top of a humongous rock which is half in the air and from where you can clearly spot the entire Manali town sitting quietly at the foothills of the mountains entangled with warped icy blue coloured Beas river. What a splendid scene it would be! That’s the kind of magic Lamadugh’s top gifts in your lap to witness and awe-inspire you. A chance to peek over the entire landscape of Manali, Hadimba temple and the Solang valley right in front of your eyes is nothing less than a bare glimpse of the heaven on earth.

Lamadugh trek which is one of the treks near Manali is more than a single day hike or a sheer chance to wander in the wild, it is a rare chance to lose yourself in the maze of enchanting pine and deodar trees, viridescent and vibrant large clearings of meadows, and a breath swaying views from the top. Though Manali is a very charming hamlet and full of crazy people for someone who is looking for a quiet place with a pinch of an adventure, Lamadugh stands out in all the ways.


It starts with a normal sporadic stony ascend but gradually turns into a very steep and slippery trail with only you and your pals in the entire route. Lamadugh trek is where almost in the entire journey it will be only you and your friends in the valley with lush green plants singing and dancing around you. It’s a place far-far away from anything like a bustling city across India.

The weather during the expedition is very sporadic and unpredictable, depending on the time you are visiting, the atmosphere changes through myriad phases. If It has not already turned into Lamadugh snow trek, then in not so wild winters, the route sometimes gets extremely foggy with opaque clouds of mist floating through you or sometimes glares with sunny weather with a pleasant atmosphere.
