These wooden houses with eye-catchy roofs are sure to grab your attention. After trekking for about an hour, you will get an attractive view of Diude, Tonglu, and other small villages.  

All the trekkers need to ascend unless you arrive at a forest covered with Pine and Oak trees. After trekking for 30 minutes through the forest cover, trekkers will start to descend. 

While trekking, we will also step on to a ledge where you can rest for some time and admire the beauty of nature. After resting, we will again trek and enter coniferous forest cover and then finally into the lush green paddocks of Dayara.

After reaching Dayara Thatch, you will see that Dayara is gorgeously surrounded on all sides with snow covered mountains. Hot dinner will be served to trekkers at the campsite after which they can retire and rest.

Once you reach Litham, you will realize that it is one of the most gorgeous campsites. From here, you can also get an outstanding view of Chandranahan waterfalls. Rest in the camp and get ready to trek for the next day.

Get ready to take lots of pictures because a walk to Chandranahan lake is very rewarding and exciting at the same time. From Litham to Chandranahan lake, it is almost a 6 km trek.

From all the sides of the lake, you will see several small waterfalls falling. Try spending some time here, absorb the serenity, and refresh your soul. In the month of June, you can find snow here.

After reaching the base, you have to trek for an hour to reach the top of the pass. You will find that the track is often covered with snow as it touches an elevation of 15,000ft. 

Be prepared to enjoy the breathtaking views of nature once you reach the top. It is better to use rope while descending because the trail might be slippery. Also, make sure you follow the direction of your instructor carefully.
