DESCRIPTION

Triund - Indrahar Pass is a highly recommended and famous trek for novices and experienced trekkers. Nestled in the lap of Dhauladhar range at an altitude of 2828 metres(9278 feet).Triund offeres the spellbinding views of lofty Dhauladhar’s range on one side and Kangra Valley towards the other. Its an ideal place to pitch the tents and soak oneself in the beauty and aura of this place. Triund is 10 kilometres (one way) from Mcleodgunj bus stand and under 6 kilometres (one way) from Galu temple near Dharamkot. The trail is mostly rocky and passes through beautiful forest of Deodar and oak trees.There are couple of tea stalls on the way.

3 kilometres up and ahead lies a much secluded and beautiful place called Snowline 3300 metres(10826 feet).The beautiful sunset view is something not be missed from here.The nights are quite cold as compared to Triund. Further ahead lies Ilaqa Got which is the base of Indrahar Pass(4342 metres).Apart from the sense of achievement the views of snow clad Pir Panjal range, sacred Mani Mahesh Peak and Kangra valley from the top of the pass will leave you speechless.
