This sanctuary starts about 2 km from Manali town. It forms the catchment of Manalsu khad. A prickle path from Manali log huts/ Dhungri temple passes through dense Deodar, Kail, Horse chestnut, Walnut and Maple forests. Night stay in tents at Lambadug or Gallant thatch is an unforgettable experience. Alpine lush green pastures and glaciers beyond Galant thatch are a romantic attraction for the enthusiastic but enduring visitors.
One may see Musk deer, Monal and Brown bear digging or ploughing the ground and also pug marks with aroma of Leopard or Snow leopard. Those who venture up to snows can see herds of Ibex in the glacier zone in summers
