Dharamshala is the starting point to a number of trekking trails, leading trekkers to different destinations. The trek to Chamba can be followed by different routes. The most difficult, hence adventurous, route is Bhim Gasutri Pass (4580 M from Dharamshala), which covers steep cliffs and near-vertical rocky ascents. Owing to the harsh level of trekking here, it takes 5-6 days to reach Chamba. Other moderate routes include trek crossing Bleni Pass (3710 M from Dharamshala) to Dunali on the Chamba Road.
