About Laka Glacier Trek

Laka Glacier Trek is yet another extraordinarily unusual and well-known trek located in a fantastic area in Himachal Pradesh. The three-day journey begins in the vivid and colorful markets of Mcleodganj and passes through mountain views, snow, and glaciers. The hike takes you through the mountain forest and up to pasture at a high altitude, surrounded by mountains and luscious trees. Laka Glacier is a captivating journey since it is delicately tucked away in the Kangra Valley and encircled by the mesmerizing Dhauladhar peaks.

Best Time To Visit Laka Glacier

The optimum time to go on the Laka Glacier trip is from March to June because the glacier is covered in snow from winter till pre-monsoon June. After the monsoon, the snow began to melt, and by July, no snow would remain. If you want to immerse yourself in the white beauty of mountains, then September to December are also great, as snowfall starts by that time.
