Traveller Tales from Mcleodganj

We started the trek from McLeodganj at around a height of 1750m and on the first day started trekking to Triund. From there on the second day, we were really blown away with the beauty of the surrounding. Lahesh Caves was an awesome site and so was Ilaqa Got. On the third day, we were on our way to complete our Indrahar Pass route. Climbed up to 4300m and after reaching the pass, we got to witness the opulent beauty of the Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayas. Fourth day was about trekking back to Mc Leod Ganj and conclude the trek. I must mention the trek guides as they really never hesitated to come forward and help us in every possible ways. Their great team of guides and instructors made the trek easy for us; thanks a bunch guys...would love to join another challenging trek with you soon!

Though Indrahar Pass trek is a short one, the challenges and terrains involved in it are really amazing. There are greater heights involved in the Indrahar Pass trek; make sure you are not scared of heights or try not to get prone to altitude sickness. I think, the trek guides can help you in this.

Kangara Valley Dhauladhars trek worked out to be an excellent trip in my lifetime. If you want to experience a really great trekking one, I suggest that this trek is the above a perfect one. I had heard about this trek from my family friend who had already been to this place, he said that this trek will fit into my budget and taste, this is how I landed up convincing my office mates to opt for this trip when they were hunting out for some trekking holiday. We were a batch of 15 people – combination of both amateurs and professional trekkers. A trek that touches the Dhauladharas range is simple awe striking. We visited many lovely lakes, ancient temples and a plenty of Hindu temples on the way. The scenes are still lovely and fresh in front of my eyes even now, if an opportunity strikes again I would surely pick this trek as my next trekking break.

Triund is the crown jewel of Dharamshala. It is situated in the laps of Dhauladhar mountains. I had an amazing experience with the Triund trek. It has a perfect view of mountains from one side and the Kangra valley on the other. Despite being a popular trekking spot, this trekking spot is not over crowded or polluted. This trek was one of the best experiences that I ever had. I so loved this trek and I want to do this trek again. This may sound stupid, but yeah I want to do this trek again sooner.

While on the Indrahar Pass trek, I literally got amazed by the beauty of the Himalayas; especially the Dhauladhar Range. What a beauty man! Besides trekking, you will also get to explore caves and ample of sightseeing options. The hikes were a bit challenging and prior trekking experience will prove to be a boon if you are planning for this one. Keep an eye on how you pack your bags; better consult with the organisers even before you start packing. You will surely enjoy this trek.

Overall, we trekked for around 5-6 hours everyday and on the third day reached the Indrahar Pass. The whole experience was so refreshing and exciting. The way our guides helped us throughout our Indrahar Pass trekking was so praiseworthy. The camping and food arrangement was very good. All the members of the group were very friendly and we had lot of fun. The views of snow covered mountains were amazing. Thanks for awesome experience.

I did my fair research before booking for Indrahar Pass trek. Trust me I thought there was nothing which couldn't have known about this place but once I reached the place...I thought everything that I had researched and learnt about the place was just stale knowledge. It is one hell of a place - still can't believe that a scenery can be so appealing to eyes. Forget all about pictures,this place will just woo you in minutes.

First of all, if you think this trek is meant just for professional trekkers then take a break coz this was my first trekking experience and not once I felt that I cannot complete the trek. All of us spent around4-6 hours everyday trekking which gave us ample time to realx our muscles and also we had sufficient time in hand to sit and enjoy the beautiful Dhauladhar ranges and surrounding beauty. Amazing experience!!!

Indrahar Pass is a place that you just can't get over once you undertake a trekking here - at least for me I can say that. I'm still not able to get over my vacation blues. The place is so beautiful, cool and calm even the birds chirping feel like an invader in the prevailing silence. Had a great time, thanks to all the rest of the group members and our trek guise for making this a memorable experience.
