Indrahar Pass Trek

This trek is best conducted in the months of May, June, September and October. The trek begins in
Mcleodganj and ends in Chamba giving trekkers a chance to see the Pir Panjal and the Dhaula Dhar
mountain ranges closely. The Indrahar Pass trek is of moderate difficulty and takes trekkers through
some deodar and rhododendron forests along the way. Trekkers can also take one of the better trails
used by Gaddi shepherds for taking their flock to pasture. Reaching the Indrahar Pass involves
climbing over many boulders but once you are at the top, you get a fantastic view of the Indian plains
and the Mani Mahesh Kailash to the east.

Kareri Lake Trek

The Kareri Lake is mostly visited by Gujjars and Gaddis who come with their flock for grazing
purposes and nature lovers are certain to enjoy a Himachal trekking tour here. Kareri Lake Treks
begin from Mcleodganj and it takes one full day from here to reach the Kareri village. The trek from
the village to Kareri Lake takes around 6 hours and goes through forests of oak, rhododendron and
pine after which there is a steep ascent as well. The best time to go for this trek is in May, June,
September and October.

Chandra Tal Trek

The trek begins from Manali which is in the Kullu valley. A short distance away lies the Chandra river
and trekkers will enjoy passing by green meadows and small shepherd huts. After this green stretch,
there are also two ravines and a stream which need to be crossed in order to reach the Chandra Tal.
Besides exploring the Samundari glacier, the valley is simply beautiful and filled with edelweiss,
buttercups and forget-me-nots. Beyond the lake, one can spot snow-capped peaks as well. June to
mid October is the best time to go Chandra Tal Trekking.

Bias Kund Trek

This easy trek is best undertaken between April- November. This trek also begins from Manali which
is famous for the Hadimba Devi temple and a Tibetan monastery. The highlight of this trek is passing
