Thanks a ton for the extremely useful info Wanderernomad. Just what the Doctor ordered as far as I am concerned.

Could you pse elaborate a bit more about Habban Valley and the trek route to Sarain. Such as stay options at Habban and distance of the trek to Sarain. Very little material available on net.

Default Re: Trekking to Churdhar - A short photologue

Interesting thread, excellent narration and pictures, kept me glued until you were back in Delhi. I'm glad you bumped it up for I would probably never have read it otherwise.

These solo trips come with a certain element of risk, which is what makes them more exciting!

I have found on my (regrettably) few solo trips that it is these trips that one remembers for a much longer time, the memories are somehow stronger and clearer.

I particularly liked the subtle-indirectness w.r.t. the specific car you were driving, including the feint toward Toyota.

Habban is the confluence of the Mountain system of Solan and Shimla Districts. From Habban to Sarain is a moderate trek of about 6-7 hours via Pulvahal. Pulvahal to Sarain is an established trek frequented by locals while the wilderness would be there from Habban to Pulvahal.

You can drive to Habban, park your car and trek downhill to Pulvahal and then climb back up towards Sarain. There are Forest Rest House at Habban and a Temple lodge and other lodgings availbale at Sarain.
