Trek Preparation

The Lahesh cave trek is a popular trek in Dharamshala which can be completed in a day. The trailhead is located just outside the town and the journey through the forest takes you to an ancient Buddhist monastery perched atop a giant cliff.  

Trekkers should be well-prepared for the hike, carrying enough water, snacks, and sunscreen. Trekking poles are also recommended for use along the way as the route is often steep and rocky. The monastery at the end of the cave provides a great view of Dharamshala and surrounding peaks.
