Bias Kund is a relatively straightforward walk via the gorgeous Solang Valley to this high sacred lake, where you will be rewarded with its spectacular setting. Gorgeous views throughout. 4 days. 3,650m maximum altitude.

Friendship Peak is a magnificent non-technicial 5,289m trekking peak in the Bias Kund area, surrounded by the stunning peaks and glaciers of the Great Himalaya, Pir Panjal and Dhaula Dhar ranges. 7 Days. Given the final altitude, a slow climb will be needed. Take in the holy Bias Kund lake as an acclimatisation walk.

The best time to go varies with the altitude of the treks.  

This can be tough walking in high, remote mountains, on which you will have to be self-sufficient and where altitude can cause real problems. Come prepared. Lonely Planet’s Walking in the Indian Himalayas has brief information. Find relevant books on Amazon.
