Dharamshala Laka Pass Trek

Duration: Maximum - 05 Days

About This Trek:
A short, popular and strenuous trek of 5-6 days, entailing steep ascent/descents of hundreds of meters every day, even after crossing the pass.  Generally open after the first week of June, the passage becomes easier between 20 August and 30 September, when there is less snow.  Cave shelters and rest houses en route; a small group (4 to 6 persons) need not carry tents.  The path is well defined all the way and a porter or guide is not necessary but could be helpful.  Combining this crossing with a return over the Minkiani Pass makes an ideal circular tour of about 10 days.

DAY-1

McLeodgunj-Triund (2750m) 9Km - Contact the Mountaineering Institute for an experienced guide or porter.  Buy provisions for at least four days.  As this region experiences the second highest rainfall in India, proper waterproof sheets or raincoats should be carried.  From the bus stand, head upwards towards the mountaineering Institute, then over a road paved with stones (somewhat similar to ancient Roman roads) for about 30 min then turn right.  At first rising gently, then steeply through thick rhododendron and pine frests, the trail reaches a rich crest and the Triund forest; panoramic view of the Kangra Valley plains on one side and of the majestic Dhauladhar behind. 

DAY-2

Triund-Laka Got (3350m) 6Km - Take the trail heading upwards and left of the camp.  It is seen climbing gradually with a few ups and downs.  After 2h reach a small settlement of stone huts.  Now turn right, facing the Dhauladhar, and go down gradually to Laka Got where a few Gaddi shepherds and fellow travelers can usually be seen ensconced beside Laka Glacier.  Continue for 1Km to reach a cave shelter called Lahesh, at the edge of the glacier; not exactly a cave but a huge boulder resting on a big flat rock at an angle at one end while the other edge rests on the ground.  A karri or foam mat spread on the floor makes it a comfortable shelter.

DAY-3

Laka Got-Laka Pass-Chhata (3380m) 8Km - The ascent to the pass is over steep snow, so a stick or ice axe should be carried.  Start early in the morning.  A few shepherds may be seen going up with flocks of sheep; follow in their steps.  This 4Km stretch over frozen snow and boulders may take as long as6-9h in poor conditions. From te top (4350m) a clear view of the Pir Pajal Range is obtained. (If there is time and you have an experienced guide, visit the Chanderkup Lake situated about 4Km NW of the pass).  Descent on the other side to Chhata camp ground is gradual; good cave shelter and a transient log hut.

DAY-4

Chhata-Kuarsi (2440m) 14Km - The trail goes down moderately then steeply towards a stream for 1h, crosses it, and climbs strenuously for 3h through thick forest to reach a ridge crest.  Then downhill for about 2h to Kuarsi, a typical Gaddi village.  Accommodation in the premises of a local temple or in the camps.

DAY-5

Kuarsi-Jhanauta-Machhetar (1900m) 17Km - Go down steeply for 1h to the Kuarsi Nala then climb steeply for 3h to a point on a ridge called Sai Jot; no water in this stage until coming to a natural spring situated on the right side of the crest.  Now go down gently through pine woods and fields to Jhanauta. This big village has a Forest Inspection Bunglow and a few eating shops.  After another steep descent of 4Km reach Machhetar, a growing village with a few eating shops; a road connects it with Kharamukh.  From here either take a bus to Chamba, or cross the Ravi river over a bridge and traverse the opposite ridge to reach Brahmaur in 4h.
