About Trek to Bharmour over Indrahara Pass :

The trek to Bharmour over Indrahar Pass is a challenging and rewarding journey through the majestic Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Situated at an impressive altitude of 4342 metres/14,245 ft above sea level, this mountain pass serves as the boundary between Kangra and Chamba districts in Himachal Pradesh. The adventure begins in the quaint town of Mcleodganj, located on the outskirts of Dharamshala, and leads trekkers up to the breathtaking Indrahar Pass.

Along the way, hikers will traverse through iconic landmarks such as Triund, Ilaqapass, and Lahesh Caves, each offering its own unique charm and beauty. The rugged terrain of the Dhauladhar range presents a formidable challenge, but the well-trodden path used by Gaddi shepherds on their way to summer grazing pastures in the upper Ravi Valley and Lahaul provides a sense of history and tradition.

The ascent to Indrahar Pass is a strenuous one, requiring trekkers to navigate through rocky terrain and boulders. However, the panoramic views from the summit make every step worth it. To the south, the vast expanse of the Indian plains unfolds before your eyes, while to the north, the sacred peak of Mani Mahesh Kailash and the snow-capped Pir Panjal Range create a mesmerizing backdrop.
