From here panoramic view of Dhauladhar range on one side and Kangra valley on the other is a memorable sight. Night stay in tents.
Day 02 : Triund – Lahes Cave (3700m)…7km.
This is an acclimatisation day. After a short ascent from Triund traverse a ridge to reach Laka Got – a temporary shephard camp. Laka Got is situated at the snout of a small glacier , which is full of snow and ice in early summer and the snow melts away during the monsoon. From Laka Got it is a steep ascent for 2 km over a rocky ridge to reach Lahes cave. Night stay in the cave or camp at Laka Got.
Day 03 : Lahes cave – Inderhara pass (4300m) – Laka Got.
Start early in the morning, the weather gets bad in the afternoon. In the early summer (April to May) the trail is full of snow and ice and requires good equipment. During post monsoon (September to November) there is no snow or ice, through narrow trail than goes up to the pass. It takes about three hours to the pass and another three hours to come down.
