Indrahar Pass Trek, Mcleodganj

About Indrahar Pass :

Indrahar Pass is like a secret doorway in the big, beautiful Dhauladhar mountains of the Himalayas. It sits way up high at 4350 meters above sea level, near the cool town of Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. This pass is like a line drawn between Kangra and Chamba districts, stretching from 2874 meters to 4350 meters high.

The adventure begins in the cozy town of Mcleodganj, just outside Dharamshala, and takes you all the way up to Indrahar Pass. Along the way, you’ll pass by famous spots like Triund, Laka Glacier, and Lahesh Caves. But be warned, the path is not easy to walk on those Dhauladhar ridges!

The trek to Indrahar Pass is no walk in the park, even though it follows a trail that the Gaddi shepherds use to get to their summer pastures in the upper Ravi Valley and Lahaul. Climbing up to Indrahar Pass means a lot of uphill walking, sometimes over rocky terrain. From the top, you can see amazing views of the Indian plains to the south, and the sacred Mani Mahesh Kailash peak and snowy Pir Panjal Range to the north. It’s like standing on top of the world!
