    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!!!

    Once in McLeod Ganj, we were made aware of the dos and don'ts in the trek. I believe the trek guides took an extra step in doing so. Following their instructions, we completed the climb to the Indrahar Pass and enjoy a lot. The challenges we faced might seem tough for the amateur trekkers. But with prior experience, this trek can be completed easily.

    It was a challenging trek, but every bit of it is a wonder! Most amazing part of the trek was camping and bonfire in the evening. Special thanks to our tour guide who was very friendly and he executed the trek perfectly. In short it was short and sweet trekking experience.

    The Indrahar Pass itinerary originates from McLeodganj and revolves around Triund, Ilaqa Got, Indrahar Pass and then concludes at McLeodGanj. During the course, you will get enough height and get to see the astounding beauty of the Himalayan Range. For me, the views from the Indrahar Pass was something that you simply cannot forget in a lifetime. Nice trek overall and is a mixed bag for the trekkers.

    This trek was one of the best for me in Himalayas. Though not recommended for the beginners, the experienced trekkers will find the Indrahar Pass route enthralling. Nice organisers, experience and skilled guides, and only 4 days of trekking; that's it! Lovely trek to get close to the Dhauladhar Rannge of the Himalayas.

    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.
