The last day of the trek is a full descent. You will walk through receding trees that give way to diverse Himalayan vegetation. After an hour and a half, you will reach a bridge crossing over a large stream. Soon you will spot trees of apricot, pears and peaches.
An hour later, you will see apple orchards and civilization. You would have entered Barua village through an arch. You will smile at villagers going about their usual day of farming or tending to cattle. Some of them might strike up a conversation and invite you for a cup of tea.
From the heart of the village, the descent becomes even more rapid. Within half an hour you reach the road bridge over Barua Khud. We will arrange for your transport from Barua to Shimla. You will leave by 1pm and reach Shimla by around 10:30pm.
If you want to travel on your own, you can get a vehicle to Karcham junction which is 3km ahead. From this junction you can go either to Rekong Peo or Sangla. Sangla which is 17km away from Karcham is the largest village in the Baspa valley. In fact, Baspa Valley is also called Sangla valley. You could visit attractions close to Sangla like Kamru, Chansu, Basteri, Rakcham, Chitkul village and Ranikanda meadows. Or you can make your way back to Shimla, the most loved hill station in India with its colonial buildings, rhododendrons, oaks and firs.
