Indrahar Pass is a Great Himalayan crossing in the Dhauladhar region. Near the major tourist destination of Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, at an elevation of 4342 meters/14,245 feet. The Indrahar pass separates the provinces of Kangra & Chamba. The journey begins in Mcleodganj, a cozy settlement on the fringes of Dharamshala, and ends at Indrahar Pass. The route goes past the Triund, Ilaqa Pass, and Lahesh Caves, which are all well-known. The Dhauladhar's slopes don't really lend themselves to comfortable trekking. Although it takes one of the most recognized routes used by Gaddi herders en route to their summertime herding meadows in the upper Ravi Valley and Lahaul, the journey to the Indrahar pass is nothing like that. Although it is a simple trip suitable both for novices and expert hikers, the approach to the Indrahar Pass entails a continuous hike, over very gravel or rocks, which necessitates a fair degree of endurance. The holy summit of Mani Mahesh Kailash as well as the snowy peaks of Pir Panjal Range may be seen from the south. Come enjoy the Indrahar trek package with Moustache!
