About Indrahar Pass Trek

indrahar pass trek

Indrahar pass trek is located between Kangra and Chamba, acting as their border. The Indrahar Pass showcases a stretch of the Dhauladhar range and presents a great panorama of the hamlets below. You may witness a panoramic view of numerous woodlands thanks to the varying altitudes of these trekking paths near Indrahar Pass. You can interact with a handful of Himachal Pradesh’s tribal groups during the Indrahar Pass hike. Sometimes it is also considered a challenging trekking route because it has many abrupt ascents and steep slopes. Otherwise, the remaining route is easy. Lake Mankiani and Lake Kareri’s serene, emerald-blue waters are visible from the route.

Most people consider September and October the best months to visit as the weather is pleasant with very little snow. But it depends on what climate you want to experience.

Reasons Why You Must Plan For Indrahar Pass Trek In Winters

  • Difficulty Level Is Easy To Moderate 

Except a few dangerous boulder-prone areas, which you should navigate with extreme caution, the trekking route is risk-free and straightforward.

  • A Place Of Varied Beauty

With its varied altitudes and location on the Dhauladhar range, Indrahar Pass boasts a floral diversity that rivals virtually any other site in the globe. Most of the pass’s panoramic views are captivating enough to calm you down, forget your problems, and revel in nature carefree. Alpine forests and foggy mountains give off a wonderful sense of being on cloud nine and are far from the hustle and bustle of the city.

  • Magnificent Bhagsu Waterfalls

This waterfall is close to the village of Bhagsu.  A couple of miles from the settlement stands a beautiful temple. The Bhagsu waterfalls are within walking distance of the Indrahar Pass Trek and are about five minutes from the temple. The beautiful waterfalls offer a comprehensive perspective of the surrounding forests and mountains.

  • Lush Green Triund Hill

After a leisurely 9-kilometer hike from McLeod Ganj, one arrives at this unassuming and endearing hill. The Bhagsu village, McLeod Ganj valley, and Dharamsala valley adorn the view during the hike. The walk includes sections where you can see the Kangra plains and others where you can see the Shivalik peaks in the distance. The journey up the hill, which looks like a rich green meadow in the autumn, is tranquil and beautiful.

  • Enchanting Kareri Lake

Kareri Lake, also known as Kumarvah Lake, is one of the gorgeous views along the walk. At an altitude of 2934 meters, this freshwater lake is relatively small and shallow. Most of the time, the lake bed is visible due to the clear water. Because it is at the foot of the Dhauladhar range, snow melt water supplies it, allowing it to remain pristine. This lake is always home to a large flock of birds, providing a refreshing sight.
