Being an extreme northern state of India, Himachal Pradesh offers the exposure of lush green valleys and massive snow-cover mountains to its visitors. Places like Manali and Spiti are famous for edgy mountains, curvy roads, monasteries and beautiful lakes. In winters, one of the most beautiful natural phenomenons happens in the mountains – snowfall. Glorious landscapes and glacial rivers offer immense scope for numerous adventurous activities such as off-roading, trekking, paragliding, ice-skating, and rafting. If driving over a high mountain pass has been in your bucket list for quite some time, this is the right time to strike it off your list.
New launch: Hospitality on the move – “Tethys on the move” or Camp Tethys
We are elated to add a new concept “Hospitality on the move by Tethys Himalaya” to this tour. After having an extensive experience of 20yrs in hospitality industry covering both domestic as well as international markets, we are now familiar and accustomed to the uncharted and unexplored locations of Himachal. So we thought of taking our clients to all these unexplored locations and sights with almost no human access earlier to make them experience the serenity and purity of these landscapes without compromising on their comfort and enjoyment . Hence, “Hospitality on the move by Tethys Himalaya” concept is introduced.
We choose some remotest uncharted locations for our camps keeping in view your love for nature with all high end comforts and amenities .We have a well experienced team of 12 to 15 people who will come along and will reach the camp site before us to make all the arrangements for the camp. We have different teams like the kitchen team to cater delicious meals amid lush countryside, F&W team to take care of the hospitality and service, Adventure team to set up the camp and bonfire before you reach the place,
Outdoor team to take care of the cleanliness to ensure eco-friendly tourism, and lastly our Guide team which will lead you throughout the tour. “Hospitality on the move by Tethys Himalaya” will let you enjoy the freedom of the unfettered countryside experiencing the most adventurous camps amid sprawling lush forests and landscapes, riversides and uphill treks.
Arrival at Manali
On the first day of the trip, you will reach Manali for an overnight stay at a hotel. Manali is a place that needs no introduction. As you make your way to the tourist hotspot of Himachal, you start getting those beautiful vibes of the beautiful, open valley that lays right under the famous Rohtang Pass. Manali is a perfect place to live near mountains and glacial rivers. The place is ideal for adventurous activities, rejuvenating your mind, and savouring lip-smacking local delicacies. We call it a day with tasty dinner and lovely music.

We will spend some time here and then head towards our next beautiful destination – Chhatru. BonFire and delicious food awaits our arrival at an offbeat camping location organised by “Hospitality on the move by Tethys Himalaya” at Chhatru.
Chhatru- Chandertal- Kunzum la- Chhatru
This is going to be a rough ride as roads heading towards Kaza is bumpy at places. The drive is tiring but beautiful landscapes dotted with streams and meadows make the drive joyful. We will take a connecting road leading to Chandra Taal at Batal. We will reach Chandra Taal during the day. After relishing packed lunch, we will head to Kunzum la driving through tough roads. Kunzum La (4590 Mtr Pass) connects Lahaul with Spiti. The crest presents a majestic panorama of peaks. After some sightseeing, we will head back to our campsite by “Hospitality on the Move by Tethys Himalaya”at Chhatru for Night stay.
Chhatru- Shinku La- Udaipur
After witnessing so much natural beauty and adventure, you might be expecting something subtle, but this place and drive to Shinku La will completely sweep you off your feet. Rather than driving straight on the Manali-Leh highway, we will take an off-road leading to Shinku La. This is completely a new adventure trail that offers you a chance to explore the unexplored high mountain pass.
Thereafter, we will descend towards Udaipur driving through Keylong. Keylong has willow- lined water courses, green fields and majestic mountains. We will reach Udaipur by the evening for night stay at the camp Tethys. The campsite will be on a beautiful location by the river Chenab. This charming campsite is a great place to stay as it gives you an amazing treat being an ideal place to feel the beauty of nature and enjoy it at its best. We spend wonderful time under the starry sky beside the river while setting up a bonfire.
Udaipur Rest Day
After driving through difficult terrain and narrow paths, you must need a day’s rest. So our day 5 will be a resting day so that you can rejuvenate and ease up yourself by taking short walks around the river bank. For those who would like to explore Udaipur, we will go to Triloknath and Myad valley and come back to our Campsite by the river Chenab.
Udaipur/Pangi to Sural Bhatori
Day 6 comprises of a long tiring drive meant for hardcore adventurous souls because we will drive through some difficult terrains where road conditions are bad.
After breakfast , we will leave Udaipur and drive along Chenab valley to village Killar experiencing some breathtaking views which can’t be described in words but can only be cherished. We will cover Pangi valley and Killar and will drive towards Sural Bhatori. Pangi is the sub- division of district Chamba and Killar is the headquarter of pangi. We will reach Sural Bhatori by the evening and will stay at a lovely campsite by “Hospitality on the Move by Tethys Himalaya”.
Sural Bhatori — Rest Day
After this nerve jerking drive, next day definitely calls for rest. So next day we cover some unexplored locations around Sural Bhatori. This beautiful valley offers numerous possibilities of day hikes. We can take a small trek rejoicing the mesmerising valley and we can also cover Udhan Bhatori which is rich in scenic beauty and is still unexplored. We will come back to our campsite by the evening.
Sach Pass is one of the most difficult passes to cross in North India at an altitude of 4500 m that runs over the Pir Panjal Mountain ranges. It connects Dalhousie with Chamba and Pangi Valley. This mountain pass is our ultimate destination which is famous amongst travellers and adventure seekers to experience the thrill of driving a car through it. The Pass is also a famous trekking point from Dalhousie. The panoramic view of the valley and snow-clad mountains from the pass is a never-seen-before experience. Sach Pass is a perfect getaway for nature lovers, photographers and adventure seekers. We have finally reached our destination we had been discussing all the way. To celebrate life and success of our expedition, we will spend a night at Sach Pass at a campsite by “Hospitality on the move by Tethys Himalaya”.
Sach Pass to Dalhousie
We start descending towards Dalhousie in the morning after breakfast. Dalhousie is an old hill town in Himachal with mesmerising natural landscape, pine-clad valleys, flower bedecked meadows, fast flowing rivers, magnificent misty mountains and old, British architecture. You can see the Scottish and Victorian architecture that takes us back to the British era. It is one of the most travelled places in Himachal Pradesh famous for its mesmerising natural beauty and old world charm. We will spend the night at this beautiful place in a hotel.
