Detailed Itinerary

Day 01: 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 02: 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 03: 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 closed. 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 maybe 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
