Overview

One of the key highlights of this trek is that it takes you to 4,610 meters in just few days. . Moon Peak climb is a comparatively shorter yet challenging trek. The steep gradient makes this a challenge doubled by bouldery and rocky later part of the trail. Moon Peak becomes greater and more beautiful as we progress on our trail.This is the chance for very few to reach the top of this wonderful iconic peak of Dhauladhars.

Moon Peak lies in the Dhauladhar mountain ranges of Western Himalayas. Lying in Himachal Pradesh, the range divides two districts of Chamba and Kangra (Dharamshala). Another major plus for the trek is that it starts from McLeodganj. McLeodganj is one of most popular hill towns in the country and world renowned for being seat of Tibet government in exile. A trekker can club his adventure with cultural tour of the town and also go shopping and food tasting here. McLeodganj is a foodie’s paradise for sure.
