DEO TIBBA EXPEDITION
Located in the Manali valley in Himachal Pradesh's Pir Panjal range, the stunning peak of Deo Tibba stands at an altitude of 6001 metres. Dome-like in appearance, it may be seen in Duhangan Nalla and Malana glacier, which consists of a large ice cap. Once you reach the edge of the ice plateau, you may access the real climb, which is a snow hump. It's stunningly located at a height of slightly over 6,000 metres, which will be a significant milestone for any dedicated mountaineer. The hike up Deo Tibba, a renowned summit, passes through the beautiful Himalayan foothills. At the peak, visitors might ponder whether or not the legend that all the Hindu gods used to hold caucuses atop this dome is grounded in reality. The top of this dome-shaped mountain, the second-highest in the Pir Panjal Range, provides a panoramic view of the surrounding snow-capped mountains.
Traveling the rocky paths leading to Chikkha while being accompanied by a winding stream will be a lot of fun. Chikkha is characterised by lush green pastures under clear blue sky; on our journey to Seri, we will pass through this area, and it will be a delight to stroll among its fields of wildflowers. The route winds its way upwards through forests of birch, pine, fir, and cedar. Amazingly beautiful sights like the Tenta Waterfall, Chandertal, and Jagatsukh can only be fully appreciated by being there in person. Chota Chandratal, high above Tenta, will serve as our base for the next several days. We'll start at base camp and acclimatise ourselves there before ferrying supplies to outlying sites. We'll start our ascent on the scree of Duhangan Col., continue over the vast ice field, and then continue up the ice cliffs. Your physical and mental fortitude will be put to the ultimate test as we make our ascent. Upon reaching our last destination, the peak of Deo Tibba, you will see its pristine magnificence in all its sweeping majesty. Once at the summit, you'll be able to take in breathtaking views of other mountain ranges and towering peaks in the distance, and you'll have a great sense of accomplishment. Carefully retreat from the top camp to the base camp and so on until you reach the trailhead. After a few days of camping in the wilderness, we have finally returned to the lush natural valleys of Kullu Manali. Now that we've travelled for what seems like forever, it's time to say our goodbyes and go home.
This journey spends 12 nights and 13 days exploring Mount Deo Tibba. You'll have plenty of time to adjust to the altitude on this lengthy trip. The spectacular trip is home to a peaceful and beautiful scenery that just enchants visitors into learning more about the rich history and culture of Himachal.

Itinerary of Expedition
You will be welcomed by our agents when you arrive in Manali, and from there, you will be driven to the rest of your lodgings and activities. On this day, we will finish the paperwork and any other preparation that is necessary. Following completion of all of the tasks, one may go to Manali.
Travel from Manali to Duhangan via the winding roads that lead into the heart of Hampta. Once you have arrived at the end of the road, prepare for the journey that lies ahead by picking up your bags and leaving our vehicle behind. The first part of our hike will consist of very easy ascents along the creek that will take us into the deep woodland. We won't be in a hurry as we make our way up the route, so we can take in the untamed natural surroundings. As time goes on, the woodlands will begin to thin out, and the town of Chhika will begin to take shape. Chhika is a sacred location that is connected to the residence of the Nag Devta. At this location, there is a rock that has a naturally carved sculpture of Nag Devta, also known as the Snake Deity, that is as lifelike as it could have been produced at the time. This natural representation of the Snake Deity may be seen in close proximity to the temple grounds. The idol seems to be ascending towards the mountains and looks as natural as it can. There are huts available for devotees who choose to spend the night there. After we have some tea and some snacks, we will look about the region and then fix our campers. Tents will be used as lodging for the night.
Today, we will begin with a steaming cup of tea, followed by the delectable breakfast that has been prepared. Initially, the hike will only be a modest amount of work as it passes through the dense woodland beside the creek. The vegetation of the lowlands will gradually transition into the vegetation of the highlands, and there will be birch trees along the way. This shift is then followed by the appearance of plant species that evolved in highland meadows, such as alpine shrubs. Along the way, we will go past the fabled location known as Pandu Ropa, which was a paddy field where the Pandavas grew rice. Spending some time in this breathtaking setting is highly recommended. Moving further, we traverse the stones and plants of the highland area as we make our way beyond the Duddu Pathar. We are going to be surrounded by bushes and stones up to the point when we can see the vast and expansive meadows of Seri. Although there are a few steeper sections on the path, the distance may be accomplished in a leisurely fashion overall. After arriving at Seri, one is able to see the wonderful campground's expansiveness for themselves. The large, flatlands that are decorated with vibrant plant life and have a stream that flows in a zigzag pattern close to the camp are what give it its moment of vitality. The area is hemmed in on all sides by precipitous cliffs of the surrounding mountains, and there is a breathtaking waterfall right in front of it that cascades down the Tenta cliffs. Discover the broad flatland and come face to face with the horses as they roam freely all over the field during the twilight hours. Don't forget to look up at the night sky, the stars, the milky way, and the constellations that are clearly visible when you have the chance. Because the campground at Seri is often subjected to arctic winds, the evenings and nights there may be rather chilly.
During the early hours of the day, make sure to catch the stunning contrast created by the sun rising on one side of the mountains as it illuminates the other side from behind the mountains. After you've had some tea and breakfast, you may begin your hike through the vast flatlands of Seri. The level ground comes to an end, and after that there is a sharp ascent that has to be traversed. Therefore, the only vegetation that can be seen consists of grasslands and a few species of Himalayan herbs. In order to go over the cliff, you have to finish the winding track, which takes an hour, and additional modest stepping, but it leads you to the flowing torrent to cross. The water in the creek is ice cold, and there is a raging torrent to go through. After we have traversed it, we shall continue our trek on the other huge flatland. The steady ascent will remain the same, and the trek to our camping ground at Tenta will be taken at a leisurely pace. Tenta is an encampment that is mostly surrounded by the cattle that the shepherds care for. Tenta is not only a lovely spot but also a position from where one can observe the whole valley as well as the path that was taken before. One may get a good view of the huge Mt. Deo Tibba from Tenta, which is located in an elevated location above us. After a nutritious meal, you should spend the night in the campgrounds.
We will be resting for the whole day today and getting used to the higher altitude. It is possible to get used to the climbing strategies and gear that will be required in the future. Explore the area, don't spend the whole time inside the tent, and make an effort to go hiking during the afternoon.
A portion of our gear will need to be transported to the Advance base camp, so get up early. A trek with large backpacks containing all of our climbing gear, rations, and other necessities will serve as our acclimatisation. Climbers will have a better understanding of the challenges that lie ahead if they move load from one campground to the next. After leaving our belongings in the Advanced Base camp, we will make our way back to the Base camp. Take the opportunity to rest up for the day that lies ahead.
The portion of the ascent that takes place above ABC and through Duhangan col. is the most difficult portion. Even for climbers with previous experience ascending at altitudes higher than 6000 metres, the Duhangan col's combination of ice and scree is a difficult challenge. The trek up to the col is quite steep and difficult until you reach the summit. As a result of the loose stones and pebbles, the grade continues angling vertically, making it very tough to climb. In order to make it through this phase of pushing one's limitations, one has to be dedicated and well-prepared. The climbers need to be aware of their surroundings at all times since even the smallest step might cause a piece of loose rock to fall and hurt someone climbing behind them. Therefore, maintaining vigilance and being active is required throughout this section of the ascent. Climbing to the top of the Duahangan col takes roughly seven to eight hours on average. After climbing the challenging stretch, one will be able to glimpse a large ice field that extends well below the summit. As we make our way across the ice field, the sheer magnitude of it becomes apparent. The location of our overnight camp will be on this enormous expanse of ice.
In order to set up summit camp, you will need to get an early start. There are two different paths that may be used to get to summit camp, and both have been utilised by recent climbers. One possible path ascends the southeast piton ridge till reaching a steep snow ramp that leads to an additional ridge that connects the higher neve slopes. Climbers typically use the alternate path, which leads them to a gully that is composed of both snow and ice and is located to the southeast of the piton ridge. We have the ability to take any route by determining what the climbers or the scenario requires.
Today is the day that everyone involved in the climbing had been looking forward to the most. The ascent to the peak will begin as soon as we are able to adequately prepare ourselves for the steep terrain. The path is a combination of snow and ice, and it ascends steadily all the way to the summit. It is a challenging endeavour, and you will need all of your efforts to be successful in order to reach the summit. Your years of hard work and dedication to improving your strength would be put to good use at a level of success that almost everyone aspires to attain. It is important that our goal be accomplished on time so that we may enjoy some moments of glory atop the mountain by taking pictures and raising the Indian flag. On the horizon, one could make out gigantic peaks and mountain ranges that extended out in the distance. Standing at the summit, high above the clouds, one would have the sensation of having won the battle against the formidable mountain and the exhilaration would last forever. Retrace your steps with great care in the direction of the summit camp. When you arrive, enjoy a steaming cup of tea and reminisce about happy occasions that brought you glory. After supper, we should get some rest and try to get a good night's sleep before we go back down.
This day is set aside in case the weather takes an unexpected turn or the climb must be postponed owing to illness or any other cause.
Descend down the treacherous Duhangan pass in a safe manner, and arrive back at the base camp. The exquisite scenery, which has been absent for a few days, will make one feel valued and nostalgic. Enjoy the evening with a steaming bowl of soup while taking in the view from the summit at your own pace. Spend the night in one of the tents.
The wild flora and animals that we will encounter today, together with the verdant scenery that surrounds us, will invigorate and thrill each and every one of us once again. We retrace our steps and make our way to Chhika by the afternoon.
The last day has come, and with it comes the last opportunity for anybody to make it back to civilisation. After a two-hour hike, we will arrive at the Duhangan Project site, where our car will be waiting for us. Chhika is the starting point of our journey. We will get back in the car and go back to Manali. When in Manali, visitors are at liberty to go to any location of their choosing.

➽ Preparation for Expedition
As you well know, the great Himalayan expedition is one that requires careful preparation, a strategy that allows for enough flexibility to adapt to whatever challenges may arise.
Therefore, here are some things to consider before setting out on your Deo Tibba expedition:
⦿ Physically – You should start working out at least a month before signing up for a program if you want to be physically prepared for the rigours of a journey. Strengthen your legs by jogging and working out regularly to increase your stamina. To better acclimatise to the environment and increase your resilience on the walk, you should give up smoking and undertake breathing exercises twice a day. Engage in vigorous physical activity, such as playing sports, doing Yoga, or running.
⦿ Mentally –
Getting in shape physically is essential, but mental preparation is just as crucial for a successful walk. Take time to enjoy your regular activities, maintain a healthy diet and sleep schedule, and unwind before embarking on a hike. Predictions regarding the journey should not cause mental worry. Spend time with your closest pals to recharge your batteries and renew your spirit. Pre-trek preconceptions are unwarranted since the first contact with the other trekkers is certain to be a source of inspiration and energy. Conditions during the walk will contribute to the increase in mental readiness. The mental repercussions of physical disadvantages will not be ignored. So, when you hike, pay attention to different regions of your body and purposefully relax them. If you want to enjoy your hike, you should learn to loosen up a little, particularly in the hips. Think about your descent as a simple dance, and enjoy the natural rhythms that the path and your body can discover together gradually, whether you're on a flowing downhill route or a frightening slope. Try out a few new walking techniques to add some fun to your commute without worrying about getting somewhere in particular. Maintaining mental fitness mostly requires a willingness to relax and take in the journey, rather than subjecting oneself to undue stress.

In July of 2018, I attempted to climb Mount Deo Tibba with Himalayan Adventure Trips. The expedition went well and according to schedule. The service was great, and we also had a good time. The native food was delicious, and the people were more than happy to assist me in any way they could. My plan is to join them on their future adventure without a doubt.
