Detailed Itinerary

If you want to hone your trekking skills with a moderately difficult venture, then Indrahar Pass trek is perfect for you. Indrahar is a mountain pass in the Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayas, and the hike to this place offers splendid scenery. Start walking uphill from either Bhagsunag or Dharamkot, and tread through deodar forests up to the temple of Galu Devta. Ahead, the ascent becomes steeper and the vegetation along the way changes to that of rhododendrons and oaks. Keep walking on a ridge to reach a lush meadow, called Triund, for an overnight stay in tents. At dawn, recommence the Indrahar Pass trekking trip by hiking further uphill. Stop for tea and some relaxation at the grassland of Illaqa before continuing the journey further. Upon resuming the trek to Indrahar Pass, cross the tree line and notice sparse patches of grass on the mountain slopes. Ascend through hordes of small rocks and large boulders to arrive at Lahesh Cave, an incredible camping place. Live like prehistoric humans inside the cave, and in the morning commence the final climb.

  • DAY 1

    Arrive at Mcleodganj- Begin trek to Triund Via Galu Devta Temple

    Reach on your own at Mcleodganj base camp and begin the Indrahar Pass trek from the village of either Bhagsunag or Dharamkot, both of which are near the hill town of McLeodganj. The path leads above the villages first to a temple, dedicated to Galu Devta – a local deity – and then it starts climbing. Hike uphill through pristine forests of deodar trees, and see the mighty and almost-vertical mountains of the Dhauladhar Range. Beyond the shrine, the trail rises rapidly and the hike becomes challenging and adventurous. Keep walking through forests of oak and rhododendron bushes on a ridge that is perpendicular to Triund – another ridge. Pass the latter landform and reach a grassy meadow to set up camps for an overnight stay.

    Meals: Pack Lunch and Dinner

  • DAY 2

    Triund to Lahesh Cave (11400 feet) via Illaqa

    Early in the morning, restart this Indrahar Pass trekking trip, and stroll further uphill. The terrain becomes rocky and almost barren with a few oak trees and rhododendron bushes scattered on the slopes. After a while, the path turns to the east and climbs above the tree line, with the vegetation now consisting of only a few patches of grass here and there. A number of boulders will come in the way of the top of the ridge, you are treading on. Upon completing this demanding ascent, reach the meadow of Illaqa, which has a welcoming tea stall. Rest here for sometime before beginning another round of treacherous climbing towards Lahesh Cave to camp at night. The cave is like a long, narrow slit in a huge wall of granite with huge boulders strewn around the entrance. On reaching the site, crouch, mind your head and crawl towards the cave. Once inside, you will find enough space for a whole group to sit, cook and get some rest.

    Meals: Breakfast, Pack Lunch and Dinner

  • DAY 3

    Lahesh Cave to Indrahar Pass (14245 feet) Indrahar Pass to Illaqa (12730 feet)

    Early in the morning, begin the longest leg of the trek to Indrahar Pass that will take you to its summit. Continue ascending along the north-eastern face of the ridge, and later tread along with a lot of caution as the track becomes rocky, making the journey tough and challenging. Along the way, there are sheer drops of almost 300 feet, and looking down from here is sure to get your heart racing. All of a sudden, the gradient of the path increases even more, and this is an indication that the destination is now close. On reaching the pass, notice a number of Trishuls, adorned with pieces of red cloth, fixed in a pyramidal pile of boulders and rocks. The views from the top are unbelievable with snow visible on higher reaches and may be some clouds below. If there are no clouds, then the views of the entire Kangra Valley may capture your attention. After clicking photos and appreciating the bounties of nature from up here, start hiking downhill to reach the Illaqa meadow for an overnight stay in tents.

    Meals: Breakfast, Pack Lunch and Dinner

  • DAY 4

    Illaqa to McLeodganj
    In the early hours of the day, begin the final stage of this Indrahar Pass trekking tour that will also be the easiest of all. The distance to be covered today is approximately 12 km, but since it is a downhill journey, it will not take a heavy toll on your body. On reaching the hill station of McLeodganj, move on for your onward journey. Meals: Breakfast
