Overnight bus to Dharamsala, and then a 1.5 hr taxi to Kareri village via Ghera. About Rs 1,500 one way. Our taxi contact was Suman, 94182 53008.
Day 1: Kareri village (5,600 ft) to Kareri lake (9,650 ft), approximately 15 km and 7 hours one way, easy to moderate difficulty
Day 2: Kareri lake to Minkiani pass (13,950 ft), approximately 14 km and 8 hours roundtrip, challenging due to steepness, routefinding and altitude
Day 3: Back to Kareri village, approximately 15 km and 4 hours

So, our third attempt at summiting Mt Patalsu! November 27 to 29.
Late November, early December is apparently a good time to head up to Manali and try Patalsu, 14,500 ft. We’ve done this twice before, and not summited, once because we tried to do a single day and that was too aggressive, and the second time we got weathered off the mountain.
So, this time we’re going to take three full days, winter camping for two nights so that we have a great shot at it. From our last trip, see pictures, we have a rough idea of where to pitch tents midway, so the plan is to get to Manali and try and knock off at least 2,000 feet of vertical the first day, pitch, do another 2,000 the next day and pitch, and then the remaining 2,000 on summit day and come all the way back.
Jenny is back from her trip to Germany, in Delhi for a few days, and wanted to come back and teach at Delhi Rock! This is a two day Acroyoga workshop suitable for both beginners and intermediates. Here’s a little about Acroyoga:
Acroyoga blends the wisdom of Yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and the loving kindness of the healing arts. These three elements cultivate trust, playfulness and community. In Acroyoga we play with the opposite energies of giving and receiving, flying and being strong.
Jenny is a super experienced teacher with over ten years of experience teaching diverse physical disciplines, and has been focused on Acroyoga for the last five, so do please try and attend this workshop to learn from her. She’ll lead everybody through a shared preparatory routine, and then form small groups which will work on material suitable for their level of experience.
