Description

Indrahar Pass Trek-

Indrahar Pass Trek (4,342 m) is an exquisite trek in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. Trekatribe offers trekking to this fascinating trek in the month of April-October. Triund (2,975 meters) is the crown jewel of Dharamshala, situated in the laps of Dhauladhar mountains, it has the perfect view of the Dhauladhar mountains on one side and Kangra valley on the other. Triund is a very popular trekking spot. This trek attracts a lot of tourists every year from India and all over the world. Triund is 18 km from Dharamshala, the trail is 7 km from Dharamkot and passes through Galu Devi temple. From this temple, it takes around 3 hours to reach Triund. The last one kilometre is popularly known as the “22 curves” as it has 22 tiring curves before you finally reach Triund.

There are many options to reach Galu. Either you can hire a taxi from Mcleodganj till Galu or you can start the trek right from Mcleodganj. Bhagsu Nag is another point to start the trek. From Galu, there is an unambiguous byway which goes through a beautiful forest of oak, deodar, and rhododendron. Furthermore, this entire stretch is perfect for birdwatchers, as the forests here are literally swarming with various kinds of songbirds. The best time for trekking is from March until May in the first part of the year and September till December in the second half of the year. Though it is rainy in June and July, still trekking is possible, the meadow is lush green presenting out of this world vista.
