The trek starts from Gaushaini which is located at 80 kms from Mandi. The journey from Mandi to Gaushaini is extremely beautiful and is either along Beas or Tirthan valley. The first day trek is from Gaushaini to Rolla which is a total distance of 8 kms. Due to the steepness of the path, it would take you minimum 5 hours to reach Rolla. The journey till Rolla is full of waterfalls, wooden bridges and small villages. This mountain valley in all its glory would tempt you to take a dip but it would be better to concentrate to keep climbing and have such activities on your climb down.
