Day 4 : Litham to Chandranahan Lakes (4029 M) & back to Litham

The Chandranahan is a glacial lake that is fed by snow melts of mountains that surround it. It is a small lake, However getting to it is an exciting experience and extremely fulfilling. We cross the stream that we saw just before the Litham campsite. We continue upstream on the trail to the top of the ridge. Then we walk towards the snout of the waterfall. After spending some time at the lake we turn back to the campsite. This short excursion will help you acclimatize for the trek ahead.

Day 5 : Litham to Dunda (4025 M)

Continue north-east along the Pabbar River which originates from the slopes of the Buran Ghati. Pass through Khubrini Thach and leaving the tree line behind climb steeply through boulders to enter Dunda Thach, located at the foot of the pass.

Day 6 : Dunda to Manerang (3338 M) via Buran Pass (4575 M),

In post-monsoon season the climb to the pass is easier due to lesser or no snow. From Dunda camp walk on the ridge through the boulders. From the base of the Buran pass, the climb to the top takes about one hour. Take halt at the pass & absorb the mesmerizing view. The path on the other side of the Buran pass is a steep drop. Use of rope is highly recommended here. The steep drop gives way to a snow field from where it is easy to slide down. Decent is fast & we lose altitude quickly. We will set camp next to the river and cross it a little further down the valley the next morning.
