Indrahar Pass Power Trek
The Indrahar Pass Trek in Himachal Pradesh begins from McLeod Ganj near Dharamshala and takes four days.
Located at 4342 metres/14,245 ft, the Indrahar Pass is situated in one of Himalaya’s most famous mountain ranges- the Dhauladhar Mountain Range. The Indrahar Pass is located in a unique geological region, a major thrust zone of the Indian tectonic plates, i.e. where the pressure of the Indian tectonic plate pushing against the neighboring Eurasian tectonic plate, is the strongest.
Narrow streams which ultimately join up with the Beas and Ravi Rivers run throughout the Indrahar Pass trekking route. The rich, opulent Kangra and Chamba Valleys also spread out far on either side of the route. The Indrahar Pass Trek offers climbers a rigorous ascent up the Dhauladhar Mountains. With slightly rocky terrain, steep ridges and wide chasms interspersed here and there with flat, plain land, the Indrahar Pass Trek is best suited for trekkers with some trekking experience. The dark, cool Lahesh caves en route to the Indrahar Pass are also worth a visit.
