The trail starts as you set Raun Bagad as your first stop on the trail to Didna village. The trail takes around 2 hours through mixed forests to Raun Bagad. The Raun Bagad is basically an iron bridge over the Neel Ganga river which you need to cross to move forward.

The Tolpani village constitutes a number of clustered huts owned by the shepherds of the region. From Tolpani follow the trail in the northern direction towards Tolkaan.
