The Indrahar Pass trek, which is one of the easy to moderate treks in Himachal Pradesh, takes off from McLeodganj, which is the seat of Dalai Lama, to Triund at 2,875 meters. The trek to Triund via Dhramkot village and Galu Devi reveals a magnificent view of the Kangra Valley and Dharamshala town below. From Triund, the trail leads off to Lahesh Cave via Laka passing through a meadow scattered with boulders. From Lahesh Cave the journey for the day commences for Indrahar Pass walking over the rocks straight on the North East face of the ridge, keeping the steep wall of Mon to its right. The trail continues over the crest and comes across several ascents. The view from the pass is just mind blowing. To the south lie the Kangra valley and the distant plains of Punjab in a blue haze, while up north rises wave upon waves of ranges like the Pir Panjal to the north, Kishtwar to the west, Bara Bangahal to east and Manimahesh to the northeast. The trail further continues down to Chhata passing through an untamed stream over the dark boulder and expunges into a beautiful valley dotted with several species of wildflowers. From Chhata, the route snakes to Kuarsi via Kuarsi Nala and leads off at Brehi en route to Lamu followed by Donali. Brehi is the gateway to Minikiani Lake, and the track passes through a dense forest via Drakund. After crossing the Minikiani Lake, the route leads to Kareri Lake and then to the camp at Kareri followed by the downhill trek to McLeodganj.
