Indrahar Pass Trek, Mcleodganj

About Indrahar Pass :

Indrahar Pass is a mountain pass in the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Located at an altitude of 4342 metres/14,245 ft above mean sea level, near the tourist town of Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh.

Indrahar pass forms the border between Kangra and Chamba districts. The trek starts from the small town, Mcleodganj, situated in the outskirts of Dharamshala and goes up to Indrahar Pass. The trail passes through the famous Triund, Ilaqa Pass and Lahesh Caves. The ridges over the Dhauladhar do not lend themselves to easy trekking. Trek to the Indrahar pass is no exception, even though it follows one of the more established trails used by the Gaddi shepherds enroute to their summer grazing pastures in the upper Ravi Valley and Lahaul.

The ascent to the Indrahar Pass involves a continual climb often over scree or boulders. In the south are spectacular views of the Indian plains; to the north are the sacred peak of Mani Mahesh Kailash and the snow capped Pir Panjal Range.
