Overview

The Indrahar Pass trek, which is one of the easy to moderate treks in Himachal Pradesh, takes off from McLeodganj, which is the seat of Dalai Lama, to Triund at 2,875 meters. The trek to Triund via Dhramkot village and Galu Devi reveals a magnificent view of the Kangra Valley and Dharamshala town below. From Triund, the trail leads off to Lahesh Cave via Laka passing through a meadow scattered with boulders. From Lahesh Cave the journey for the day commences for Indrahar Pass walking over the rocks straight on the North East face of the ridge, keeping the steep wall of Mon to its right. The trail continues over the crest and comes across several ascents. The view from the pass is just mind blowing. To the south lie the Kangra valley and the distant plains of Punjab in a blue haze, while up north rises wave upon waves of ranges like the Pir Panjal to the north, Kishtwar to the west, Bara Bangahal to east and Manimahesh to the northeast. The trail further continues down to Chhata passing through an untamed stream over the dark boulder and expunges into a beautiful valley dotted with several species of wildflowers. From Chhata, the route snakes to Kuarsi via Kuarsi Nala and leads off at Brehi en route to Lamu followed by Donali. Brehi is the gateway to Minikiani Lake, and the track passes through a dense forest via Drakund. After crossing the Minikiani Lake, the route leads to Kareri Lake and then to the camp at Kareri followed by the downhill trek to McLeodganj.

FAQs

Clothes Required for trek ?
Cotton shirts, T- shorts, jeans, etc. for day use. Socks and underwear 4/5 that can be easily washed and dried on daily basis. Trekking suits, light sweater, a wind proof jacket or lightly padded jacket, down jacket umbrella, sun hat, waterproof gear, etc.
How do I get to Dharamsala?
To get from Dharamsala the easiest route is to follow directions from Delhi. You can also get there on overnight buses from Manali, Amritsar, and Shimla. McLeod Ganj is located approximately 10 kilometers away from Dharamsala and is accessible by frequent buses and taxis.
What is the weather & temperature like?
Weather in the mountains is notoriously difficult and hard to predict. Of course, it is generally cold at night, and in winter, the days can be quite beautiful if the sun is out. There can be snow or rain storms any time of the year. Trekking in spring (March – April) is particularly lovely and beautiful as the rhododendrons are in full bloom. The mountains still have plenty of high snow to snap your photos. You need to be aware that it can get pretty hot and sunstroke can be a risk. Good polarizing sunglasses or glacier glasses (not trendy fashion ones) for high altitudes/winter treks, and a large brimmed hat are a necessity. It is also important to make sure that you can stay warm and dry in just about any conditions. Expect the unexpected! Between 1000m and 3500m the temperature could be as high as 20 deg C to 5 deg C low. At higher altitude, the temperature ranges from 20 deg C to -10 deg C. During winter it is around 10 deg colder.
