Eagles Nest: Breathe, Behold, Belong

Treks and Trails

Bo Trail

An easy trek of natural bliss in the company of Deodar trees and tranquil winds through the wilderness. About 1000 steps through the woods for a quick 20-minute walk, the trail is a perfect rendezvous with nature, with the sun-kissed snow-capped mountains overlooking your journey.

Hallet Trail

Around the top of the hill where the snowy brisk mountain air calls out for you to relish the raw magnetism of the trail covered in the autumn leaves. This moderate-level trek covers about 3000 steps of the path less travelled in about 30 minutes of a peaceful adventure.

Nag Temple Trail

This trail takes you to a beautiful little ancient Shiv Mandir with an equally picturesque spot. The sunsets, the Kangra valley, and the Dhauldhar range all look absolutely spectacular from this panoramic view point. Flora and Fauna on this walk is to watch out for.

Waterfall Trail

This moderate to difficult 60-minute long trek through the flora and fauna of the hills surrounding Eagles Nest opens to an awe-inspiring waterfall. The trail goes through a dense forest that has Rhododendron trees, Langurs, wildlife and birds in abundance.

Naddi Sunset Trail

This one’s ideal for an easy breezy late afternoon hike leading through a jungle less traversed that ends at a spectacular sunset spot in Naddi Village. Naddi hill is home to a wide variety of flora and trees. Ever so often, sound of a Himalayan Barbet welcomes you to the spot.

Village Bal Trail – Guna Mata Temple

A village we call the Machu Picchu of Dharamsala – located between Galu and Kareri is a world of it’s own. The trail takes you down in the valley where you can have a picnic by the riverside and then get a sneak peak into the local culture as you hike up to the tempsle. Situated in the heart of a forest, overlooking Kareri valley on the right and Naddi on the left, this spot is a local favourite.

Triund Trek

Triund at 9350ft is the ideal destination for those seeking a hassle-free taste of trekking in the Himalayas. The trek can easily be done over a weekend. The trail to Triund is short but steep. The steep climb is well-compensated by refreshing walks amongst rhododendron and oak trees. There are also various songbirds in the forests along the trail which make it a birdwatcher’s delight. Best time to visit: March to May & September to December.

Kareri Lake

A lake standing tall at an altitude of 9626ft above the sea level is one of the most stunning lake treks in Himachal. The melting snow of the Dhauladhar Range as the source of water serves a mesmerising appeal to the place. The fact that it remains frozen during early December to March/April also adds to the charm. The forests that lead up to the lake are rich in both flora and fauna.

The Indrahar Pass Trek

Indrahar is a mountain pass in the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Located at an altitude of 14,245ft above the mean sea level, this pass forms the border between Kangra and Chamba districts. The trek starts from Galu Temple and passes through the famous Triund, Ilaka Glacier and Lahesh Caves. The ridges over the Dhauladhar do not lend themselves to easy trekking and this one’s no exception. Somewhere between moderate and difficult, this trek is a window into the lifestyle of Gaddi shepherds and an access into some of the rarest of birds and flora in the region.
