LAKA GLACIER TREK

Daily Tour 2 nights / 3 days Availability: 2021-05-15
Kangra, Dharamshala

OVERVIEW:

The latitudinal location of Dharamsala has an advantage that it lies in a very close proximity to snowline. During summer time after walking for only 13 kms you reach the snowline at Laka Glacier. This is one of the most popular and beautiful trek that you can do in short duration. During pre-monsoon period(March to June) the glacier is full of snow but from July onwards the glacier starts to melt and recede back and during post monsoon period there is no snow at the glacier and you only see the moraine(the remnants of Glacier)
