  • The trek covers an approximate trekking distance of 45 km.
  • The best time to take the trek is between April till October.

Detailed overview

One of the key highlights of this trek is that it takes you to 4,610 meters in just a few days. Moon Peak and Indrahar Pass lie in the Dhauladhar mountain ranges of Western Himalayas. Lying in Himachal Pradesh, the range divides two districts of Chamba and Kangra (Dharamshala). Another major plus for the trek is that it starts from Mcleodganj. Mcleodganj is one of the most popular hill towns in the country and world-renowned for being the seat of Tibet government in exile. A trekker can club his adventure with a cultural tour of the town and also go shopping and food tasting here. Mcleodganj is a foodie's paradise for sure. 

Moon Peak climb is an expedition so the hosts keep their itinerary flexible so as to give their climbers the best chance to reach the summit as per the overall team's strength and capabilities.
