  • Summary of Dalai Lama Trek



    Max Altitude: 3550 Mts.
    Best Time: March - June & Sep - Nov
    Difficulty: Moderate

    Dharamsala is situated in the Northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It lies on a spur of the Dhauladhar range in the Pir Panjal region of the Outer Himalayas; and commands majestic views of the mighty Dhauladhar ranges above, and the Kangra Valley below. Dhauladhar means "white ridge" and this breathtaking, snow-capped range rises out of the Kangra Valley to a height of 5,200 meters (17,000 feet).

    The Kangra Valley is a wide, fertile plain, crisscrossed by low hills. Our challenge begins in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan Community are situated, at the heart of the world’s highest mountain range. We have time to spend in this fascinating town in the mountains before we set off on foot, to explore this stunning region. Our 5 day trek takes us through the Kingdom of Gaddi – a semi nomadic race who spends months wandering the high passes with their cattle. With spectacular views of the Dhauladhar Mountain Range, this gem of challenge events takes us through rhododendron forests, passing through Hindu settlements and Buddhist Monasteries. To end this most amazing challenge, we have some free time to explore the incomparable Taj Mahal – one of the world’s greatest monuments to love ever built, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

  • Complete Daywise Itinerary

    Day 01: Delhi
    Upon arrival in Delhi, we are met by our local guides and transfer to a Hotel in Delhi to freshen up. There will be some free time to explore Delhi this afternoon, before we take the transfer to the train station to catch our sleeper train to Pathankot.

    Day 02: Pathankot & Dharamshala (B, D)
    Arriving in Pathankot early morning, we then transfer by coach to Dharamshala – the spiritual home of his Holiness the Dalai Lama. There we will be some free time today to explore this fascinating town, before we meet later in the evening for dinner and a briefing for the start of our challenge tomorrow.

    Day 03: Dharamshala (Macleod Ganj) to Kareri - 2,070m (B, L, D)
    Following breakfast at our Hotel, we take the transfer to our start point to begin trekking! Our first few kilometres are undulating until we reach Satobari Village, which is where we start our descent through pine forests to Ghere Village. We stop at a mountain stream to enjoy lunch - a great spot!

    We continue after lunch with a steep ascent for about 2 hours to Kareri Village, where we set up camp next to the Laund River.
    Trekking distance - approx. 14km.

    Day 04: Kareri to Bal Village - 2,330m  (B, L, D)
    After experiencing our first night under the stars, we continue ascending on a gradual trail passing through many charming villages, passing beautiful open meadows and pine forests on the way. We take a short descent to the mountain stream to stop for lunch, then ascend sharply afterwards to Bal. This is the main festival day of Divali so we’re expecting to see the many lights shine up the locals homes! We’re sure the memories of this day will never be forgotten. Trekking distance - approx. 15km

    Day 05: Bal Village to Triund – 2,995m  (B, L, D)
    We continue our trek by crossing over a suspension bridge then ascending through rhododendron and pine forests for approx. 2 hours. We’ll soon come across the local ‘chai’ (tea) shop where we can take a rest and enjoy our surroundings.
    All around us are the Gaddi Tribal people taking their cattle up to the high pastures of Lak and Triund. Continuing our ascent after lunch, we finally reach our camp on an alpine meadow facing the breathtaking snow-capped peaks of the Duala Dhar mountain range.
    Trekking distance - approx. 14km.

    Day 06: Triund, to Laka Got  - 3,550m, then to Triund  (B, L, D)
    Our trek today is a challenging ascent to see the fascinating Laka Got, situated at the tip of a glacier. There will be an opportunity for us to trek on the glacier in order to reach Lahes Cave – an overnight shelter used by the shepherds travelling over the mountains with their sheep.

    After making the effort to climb up to the cave, we return to Triund for our last night under the stars. Trekking distance - approx. 10km.

    Day 07: Triund to Bhagsu Nag. Transfer to Dharamsala (B, L, D)
    Following our last breakfast in the campsite, we begin trekking over a grassy ridge which offers us lasting memories of the snow capped peaks that surround us.

    Our trek continues with a steep descent to the Bahgsu Nallaha stream – we cross the stream by hopping over the boulders with the help of our local guides. We push towards Bhagsu Nag, which has a divine temple and natural springs which we can visit before taking the transfer back to Dharamsala. This evening we enjoy our celebratory dinner to take in our achievements.
    Trekking distance – approx. 12km.

    Day 08- Dharamsala - Pathankot (B, D)
    We have a free morning to further explore this magical town – why not visit the Tibetan market or take a visit to one of the majestic monasteries? In the afternoon, we take the transfer back to Pathankot train station to catch the overnight sleeper train back to Delhi.
    Overnight: Train.

    Day 09- Delhi - Agra (B, D)
    We arrive in Delhi and jump straight onto our waiting bus to take the transfer to Agra. Upon arrival, we check into our Hotel. Later we visit the incomparable Taj Mahal – no visit to India would be the same without seeing it! Built by the Mughal Emporer, Shah Jahan in loving memory of his wife and will always be a symbol of undying love for anyone who sees it.
    Overnight: Hotel.

    Day 10- Agra - Delhi and flight to home
    We take the very early transfer back to Delhi in order to catch our flight back to the Home.
