4 days trip with 2 days trekking
The trekking region can be accessed by a comfortable 7 hour drive from Delhi or by training it to Kalka near Chandigarh and following it up with a 3 hour drive.
Churdhar peak at 3650m or around 12,000 feet is the highest peak in the lower Himalaya and its base can be accessed through a 4 hour drive from Chandigarh. The main peak and its subsidiary peaks present quite a challenge and require a day's camping. There is also an opportunity to do walk to the various campsites used for the climb and then head back to base. This option offers an opportunity do a winter trek in the Himalaya without the need of camping out.
