HEAT 2004 - TREK TO SOLANG GLACIER (12,020FT)
The Pir Panjal range lies south of the main Himalayas at an average elevation of around 5000 - 6000M. From Gulmarg (Kashmir) in the north -west it follows the southern rim of Kashmir valley sweeping south- east to Kishtwar and then to the east, where it forms the divide between the Chandra and Ravi valleys in Himachal Pradesh.

The Solang valley is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular and impressive valleys of Himachal Pradesh. On "Mt. Hanuman Tibba Trail", you will traverse this great Himalayan range and appreciate the sheer geographic diversity - from the verdant, forested valleys and the flowered meadows (thatch) carpeted with wildflowers. The great Maharishi Vyas also meditated here and whose journeys reflect the rich cultural history of the region.

Combine this with an interest in the variety of birds, wildlife, forest and wildflowers and the opportunity to view the many snow-capped peaks such as Mt. Hanuman Tibba (5928M), Mt. Friendship (5289M), Mt.Shitidhar (5294M) & Mt. Ladakhi (5342M) and you have all the ingredients for a highly rewarding trekking holiday in HEAT 2004 this summer even for the most laid back person.
