To visit and experience Dharamsala hassle-free, view dharamsala india tourism.
Dharamsala is one of the most popular starting points for treks over the rocky ridges of the Dhauladhar Range, which rise steeply from the Kangra Valley to an altitude of 4600m.
Trails pass through forests of Deodar, Pine and Oak trees and a host of streams, rivers and sometimes crossing the occasional lake, waterfall or glacier.
The most visited route from Dharamsala is to the Chamba Valley, over the Indrahar Pass (4350m). The trail is hard in places, but most trekkers accomplish it in around five days. One can marvel the breathtaking views south to the plains and north to the snowy Pir Panjal peaks and Greater Himalayas.
Dharamshala-Nayargraon is also one of the popular routes from Dharamshala. It passes through Bir, Billing, Palchak, Panihardu, Udeg, Marhu, Barabanghal and Dhardiand and concludes in Nayagraon.
The most difficult route north is the five- or six-day trek across Bhimghasutri Pass (4580m), covering almost-vertical rocky ascents, sharp cliffs and dangerous gorges. A four- or five-day trek from Dharamsala crossing Bleni Pass (3710m) is comparatively easy. The route here weaves through mountainous meadows and a few streams. It finishes at Dunali on the Chamba road.
The best season to trek here is September to November. Due to severe cold in winter months, trekking should be strictly avoided.
