The path climbs for some time and heads over grassy meadows. Continuing North East along the Ravi River, an almost level walk ensues to Bara Bhanghal. The old village is situated a little above the river while the newer one is seen on the right bank.You can camp comfortably outside the new village.
Early in the morning after breakfast you will cross the river by a bridge about 200m upstream then turn south to cross the Thamsar Nala by a long bridge. After 5 Km, the path re crosses Thamsar.
This trek is adventurous and will take 5-6 hours over rocks and snow slopes. As the pass is a long way ahead and the ascent steep, it is better to camp further on, nearer to the pass. There is a traditional camp place about 8Km from Marhu where a huge rock shelter is found.
