Day 2: Shimla - Kufri - Fagu - Narkanda

The offbeat trail start to Kufri climbing up to 8600 feet. As you approach the hamlet, do not the verdant deodar filled emerald forested slopes on the right. The helipad up from Wildflower Hall commands the best views of the countryside and of course Kufri with its pony rides and mini zoo (though crowded in season) is a must do! Enchanting views of the Himalayan ranges and snow capped peak on clear days. Carry onwards crossing Fagu on the way, perhaps stopping for a hot cuppa as you once again get an uninterrupted view of the snow ranges. Soon after, reach Narkanda at 9240 feet.

During the summers you can see the beautiful rosy pink flowers blooming on the apple trees and August onwards the orchards are laden by green and red apples. As you cross Baghi - breathtaking views of apple orchards stretching across the deep and vast valleys, the landscape becomes even more spectacular with the imposing Chambi Peak summiting the mountains. As one approach Tikkar, the road opens up and you hit small green meadows - a nice place to stop and enjoy your picnic lunch. Soon after, you are mesmerized by a silver thread down in the valley below-the Pabbar River gliding through the valley. It is a great sight with conifers by the white river bed and the waters shining in the sun. Rohru, by itself is a typical bustling, outback hill town; by the Pabbar River. Though it can get to be warm during the summers, it is the best base for visiting Chansal Pass at 13296 feet with stupendous views of the Himalayan ranges. Rohru used to be on the beat of every angler worth his salt but sadly much of the trout has been dynamited away. Evening reach Rohru and check into hotel.

Day 4: Rohru - Chirgaon - Chansal Pass (13296 feet) - Rohru, 100 Kms

Today is the 'summit day'! 15 km from Rohru, scenically enchanting, Chirgaon has a trout hatchery. Good fishing spots in the area are Seema, Mandi, Sandhsu, Tikri and Dhamwari. Larot is another attractive spot near Chirgaon; this is the base for treks to Dodra-Kawar & Sangla Valley. From Larot to Chanshal the road is narrow & rough but the vistas awesome.
Finally you reach Chanshal Ghati and in early summers you will find plenty of snow here. After spending a couple of absolutely pristine hours and enjoying a picnic lunch in the shadow of the mighty Himalayan ranges start back in the afternoon and Spend time by the Pabbar river and exploring the ancient temples.

The Jubbal area also has some splendid temples with excellent examples of local craftsmanship.
