Jeep Safaris



The natural wonders of the Himalayas can be witnessed on a Jeep Safari from Kullu Valley to destinations like Ladakh, Kinnaur, Lahaul or Spiti.

For those with limited time it's an ideal way to explore the Himalayas by road. Kullu valley has been into Jeep Safaris right from the time the Ladakh road opened in the late 1960's.

Local tour providers offer a fleet of high powered Maruti-Suzuki Gypsies with highly experienced drivers and guides to make your Jeep Safari a memorable experience.

Season
July to mid-October.

An Excursion to Lahaul

  • DAY 1: MANALI - KEYLONG
    You leave Manali in the early morning by jeep, cross Rohtang pass and enter Lahaul, to the valley of glaciers. The 115 km drive to Keylong takes about six hours.
     
  • DAY 2: Visit to KHARDONG and SHASHUR Gompa
    Khardong Gompa is situated on the left bank of the Bhaga river above Khardong village about five kilometers from Keylong. Shashur Gompa, dedicated to Lama Gotsang of Zanskar was founded in the 16th century and belongs to the "red" Gelug-Pa sect. The annual festival of Chham is held during Summer.
     
  • DAY 3: Drive to UDEYPUR and TRILOKNATH Temple
    The Temple of Triloknath is situated near Adet about 50 km from Keylong and easily approachable by road. Dedicated to Mrikula Devi, it was constructed during the 15th century by the king of Chamba. Originally a Hindu architecture with fine wooden carvings it looks like being created by the same architect who did the Hadimba temple in Manali. It was later converted to Buddhism by installing a statue of Phagpa Chrinzik. The legend tells that Guru Padma Sambhava also visited the temple as well as the Pandavas of the Mahabharatha who have spent here some days during their 14 years exile. The temple is thus very sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists and many pilgrims from all over India visit it every year.
     
  • DAY 4: Drive back to MANALI
    An eight hours drive brings you back from Udeypur to Manali.
