Two trekkers from Dharamsala have gone missing in the Dhauladhar mountain ranges, authorities in the district said on Saturday.

Authorities identified them as Harsimranjeet Singh, a resident of Gurudwara Road, and Naveen Singh from Dari. They’d gone trekking to Kundli pass near Kharota and have been missing since Friday.

Authorities suspect that the two trekkers were left stranded on the upper reaches of the Dhauladhar mountain range after Friday’s snow.

Families of the two trekkers said they’d approached the police after they couldn’t get in touch with them. Officials from Dharamsala district administration said they’d asked the union Defence Ministry to conduct an aerial survey to help locate them.
