Begin your walk from Taluka by following a stone-way, which descends to the river bed. From here, the path follows the Supin river. The path gradually ascends after crossing a couple of cement and wooden bridges. The path will open up to the left after about an hour. Many locals are busy at their jobs around here. They are happy to greet you. You can find stunning, undiscovered wooden architectures if you continue walking for 2 hours. This is Ghangad village.

There will be boulders along the route once you reach Ruinsara Valley. Keep climbing to see the famous Oslo village behind you.

Continue on for another 30 minutes and Debshu Bugyal will be here. You can take a break here, as the Bugyal is a huge 2km long pastureland. The meadows can be seen to the north and west of Kala Nag.

From here, the path drops abruptly until you reach river bed. It is slippery and filled with stones. Here you'll cross another bridge. Admire the amazing sights all around you. The trail climbs steeply from this point. Rainbasera's next campsite has one small hut. The gushing river is a beautiful sight to see in the evening.

You may find it difficult due to the snow. Rest at Upper Dhamni after this difficult part. You will find the path from leg to Dhamni confusing. Follow your guide and make sure you are in a group.

After some rest, we will begin our trek to Lower Dhamni. It is recommended to stick with your leader and team as the path can be confusing. From here, the trail will be flattened and easily visible.
