Overview

  • Region - Dhauladhar, Himachal.
  • Duration - 4 days.
  • Grade - Moderate to Difficult.
  • Max. Altitude - 14,245 ft.
  • Trekking Kms (approx) - 32 kms.
  • Indrahar Pass is a mountain pass in the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Located at an altitude of 4342 metres/14,245 ft above the sea level, near Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. Indrahar pass forms the border between Kangra and Chamba districts. The trek starts from Mcleodganj.

    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 en route to their summer grazing pastures in the upper Ravi Valley. The ascent to the Indrahar Pass involves a continual climb often over boulders which needs a good fitness level even though it is an easy trek ideal for both beginners and experienced trekkers alike.

    Detailed Itinerary

    Day 1: Mcleodganj (5,865 ft) to Triund (9,750 ft).

  • Time Taken : 5-6 hours (6kms) trek.
  • Today we start the trek from McLeodganj to Triund covering a total distance of 9 km. There is a trail from both the villages situated next to Mcleodganj ex Dharamkot and Bhagsunag, but the trail from Dharamkot side is more beautiful and defined and it starts from Galu Devi Temple. The trail is rocky in most of its part. The last 1 kilometer is a steep ascent through the forest taking you to Triund which is a flat meadow on top of a ridge.

    From here a panoramic view of Dhauladhar range on one side and Kangra valley on other is a memorable sight. We will stay here for the night. Have dinner and retire for the night. Overnight stay.


    Day 2: Triund to Laka Got (11,480 ft).
  • Time Taken : 4-5 hours (5kms) trek.
  • On this day, wake up early in the morning as the view from Triund is magnificent at this time. Take a deep breath and absorb the view of mighty Dhauladhar ranges shining through the mesmerizing sunrise. After breakfast, start your trek to Laka Got which will take around 4 to 5 hours to reach. The first milestone in today’s trek is Snowline Cafe, which is around 2 km from Triund and then comes Laka Got. From here, traverse a ridge to reach Laka Got. Laka Got is situated at the snout of a small glacier, which is full of snow and ice in early summer, and the snow melts away during the monsoon. This is our campsite for the night. Have dinner and retire early since tomorrow you will cross the Indrahar Pass. Overnight stay in tents.


    Day 3: Laka Got to Indrahar Pass (14,245 ft) to Laka Got.
  • Time Taken : 7-8 hours (9kms) trek.
  • Today we cross the mighty Indrahar Pass. Make sure you begin your trek early in the morning. The distance is the longest today and it is also the most difficult part of the entire trek. So be mentally prepared. The total distance for this day trek is around 12 km and it takes around 6 hours to reach the top, i.e., Indrahar Pass and another 4 hours to come down to Ilaqa Pass. The route from Ilaqa Pass to Indrahar Pass is steep and is completely uphill. The difficulty level varies from moderate to strenuous. There is no vegetation here and the terrain is mostly rocky. The trail leading towards Indrahar Pass from Lahesh Caves is a bit confusing as well. However, with an experienced guide, there will not be any problem. After reaching Indrahar Pass, spend some time there and experience a majestic view of higher ranges and valleys. Make sure you start descending soon enough in order to reach back by afternoon. Do an overnight stay at Laka Got.


    Day 4: Laka Got to Mcleodganj.
  • Time Taken : 6 hours (11kms) trek.
  • On the last day of the trek to Indrahar Pass, you will be following the trails you trekked on the first and second day. A gradual trek of around 6 hours will finally take you back to McLeod Ganj. With your arrival in McLeod Ganj, this amazing trek will come to an end.
