This trek can be a one-day trek or a two-day trek depending on your wish to camp there overnight.
The uphill journey takes around 2 to 3 hours. The trek is quite steep, but not tough. After 30 minutes of walking, we arrive in Shujilo and the amazing scenery of the Kinner Kailash will definitely cheer you up. There, we can take a break and have a little chat with the shepherd lady who lives there most of the year and takes care of her cattle.
We carry on climbing where the water source is divided into small canals used for irrigation. From this point, we follow the water canal until we reach the water source of Chanka. We first build our camp and then we have free time to enjoy the panorama of the mountains: the massive Kinner Kailash Range, Raldang and Jorkandan peaks.
Just 20 minutes of walking uphill, there is a small lake that is now almost dried because it is pumped for the villagers to use as drinking water. From there, a path leads to a peak at 4000m altitude.
After a regenerating night, we go back to Kalpa. The downhill trek will take around 1.5 hours.
