Day 2: Manali – Dhundi (drive) – Bakarthach (21 km drive and 5 km trek)Start as early as possible from Manali and drive to Dhundi via Solang Valley. The base camp is at Bakarthach which is a fairly easy inclined trail from Dhundi. The trail goes beside the Beas River and soon you will cross a wooden bridge over the river with no railings. As you near the basecamp at Bakarthach, you will cross a few numbers of streams of the tributaries of the main river. This would be the camping site for the first day.
