Description

This superb trek passes through the kingdom of Gaddi, a semi nomadic race that spends many months wandering the high pastures with their cattle. The trail offers some splendid views of Dhauladhar mountain range, passing through Himalayan villages with terraced fields, dense mixed woods of oak, rhododendron, deodar and bamboo. The ascent to the Indrahar Pass involves a continual climb often over scree or boulders. To the south, there are spectacular views of the Indian plains; to the north is the sacred peak of Mani Mahesh Kailash and the snow capped Pir Panjal Range.
