Overview

The Moon Peak, at an altitude of almost 15,125 feet, is the most visible landmark in the Dhauladhar mountain range. The trail leading to the summit offers a challenging trek with quite a steep gradient and curves. Littered with big boulders, the landscape changes drastically as you climb up from Triund’s grassy meadows to the rocky Lahesh Caves. From the summit, you’ll get exquisite views of the beautiful Kangra valley and snow-capped peaks of the Dhauladhar range.

The Moon Peak Trek starts from Mcleodganj in Dharamshala and passes through the popular camping ground of Triund, the Laka Got, Lahesh Caves and Indrahaar Pass.  McLeod ganj to Indrahaar Pass trek via Triund is a low-moderate difficulty trek. This trek follows one of the more established trails used by the Gaddi shepherds enroot their summer grazing pastures in the upper Raavi Valley and Lauhal. Whatever difficulty this trek throws your way, the spectacular views more than compensate for it. To the south there are mesmerizing views of the Indian plains; to the north is the sacred peak of Mani Mahesh Kailash and the snow capped Pir Panjal Range
