Mt. Deo Tibba is a beautiful 6001 Meter (19,687 Ft.) high peak, located in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalaya and situated quite close to the resort town of Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. The mountain itself consists of an extensive ice cap, with the actual climb to the summit being up an inclined hump of a ‘windslab’ snow. This magnificent peak is accessible, once the edge of the great snow & ice plateau extending right up to the periphery of the Malana Glacier, (which abuts the upper Kullu and Malana valleys), is reached. On reaching the summit, one is rewarded with an exhilarating view of vast eternal snowfields, hanging glaciers and many peaks of the surrounding areas; including the great peaks of the Malana & Tosh glacier catchments.
Trek to Deo Tibba Base Camp is also know as the trail of the Pandavas. It is believed that the Pandavas once wandered around this path. The trek is itself is very pleasant that takes us to the grazing pastures of the Gaddi shepherds and the emerald blue waters of the Chandratal Lake (4,480 m/14,698 ft) with magnificent views of Deo Tibba peak (6,001 m/19,688 ft) and its huge hanging glaciers. This is a spectacular view that make makes the trek even more alluring.
