The Sainj Valley conjures up images of quaint cottages, lush green fields, backdrop of sweet-sounding birds chirping, and serene surroundings for you. This easy-moderate trek located at an altitude of 6890 feet is one of the perfect getaways for the adrenaline junkies. You will find the snow-covered pine trees along the path that is split into grasslands and clearings, where you can dip your toes in different landscapes.
The Shangarh meadows, the Great Himalayan National Park, the virgin picturesque beauty of the Sainj village, the divine waters of the Pundrik Rishi Lake, and sighting waterfalls of the Kullu Valley will leave you mystified for life.

Drive to Shangarh from Aut. Trek up to Tindadhar.

Traversing a distance of 40 kilometers you reach Aut, a town on the highway of Delhi-Manali. You will be picked from here to be taken off to Shangarh that lies 25 kilometers away.

The Shangarh Road heads north-west and you pass through the three kilometers long Aut tunnel to reach the huge lake formed at the confluence of Sainj, Tirthan and Beas rivers (Larji Dam).

The trail begins next to the Ropa forest guest house where after ascending gradually for about one kilometer, you will see a flowing stream. This trail has a rich flora, and fauna with noteworthy bird species.

You will be bowled over by the rhododendron, fir, deodar and spruce trees dotting the landscape besides hearing the twitter of several birds. These birds include the western tragopan, blue magpie, brown fronted pied woodpecker, and little forktail.

As you keep climbing uphill you pass many Sainj river dams and after hours of continuous trekking you reach the Sainj Valley.

Soaking in the beauty of the trail that has the dominant peaks of Raktisar glacier you pass the Dalogi and Lower Nai villages to reach the Tindadhar campsite.

The next leg of the Sainj Valley Trek begins as you take the uphill trail from the campsite passing through dense forests.

In a span of thirty minutes you make it to a colossal waterfall and a place called Nuhada. Here, you spend some time before you head back to the Tindadhar campsite.


Trek up to Pundrik Lake from Tindadhar. Head back Ropa and drive back to Aut.

The second day of the Sainj Valley Trek begins with you taking the same trail that you took to reach the waterfall on the first day.

After trekking for forty minutes straight through the jungle you reach the Sarahan village. The best part about this Sainj Valley Trek is that you get to witness the beauty of the hamlet’s uniquely constructed homes.

Taking in the views of the flowers and the green farms you reach the wooden temple dedicated to Rishi Pundrik and another government school.

Continuing beyond and trekking for another twenty minutes you reach grassland with knee-length grass growing. It almost feels like you are floating above the water and this beautiful location is the Pundrik Lake.

Spend some quality time here and then return to the Sarahan village tracing your way on the same trail.

Taking the road trail to reach Ropa after 2.5 hours marks the end of your Sainj Valley Trek.
