Have you ever dreamt of walking on clouds? If you haven’t, here is a chance to make that dream come true. Some 18 kms away from McLeod Ganj, Triund is the adventure lover’s paradise and looks just great every season. Those who want to trek or enjoy a picnic, Triund is the best place to spend some time at. It is a popular picnic and trekking spot and those who want to do a return trek in one day are advised to start early. This place is the crown jewel of Dharamshala, situated in the laps of Dhauladhar mountain range.

So, why visit Triund? From someone who’s been there, here are few reasons to visit Triund with your friends:

Because the views are amazing: Triund offers excellent panoramic views of the Dhauladhars along every bend of its trail. Once you reach the grassy meadows where the trek ends, the clouds descend to give you company and the view is absolutely spectacular! Those who forget to bring their cameras along will regret it for a long, long time.

Because the trek doesn’t have to end at Triund: Getting to the Triund valley is an achievement in itself. But the more adventurous can try hiking further to the Kareri Lake, where you’ll come across rock-cut caves to explore. There are no wild animals in the area, at least not during the day, so feel free to check the place out if you have the energy.

Because it’s relatively easy:  The Triund trek will take at best four hours to complete and though quite a few manage to do it within two hours. The trail itself isn’t too grueling, even for the unseasoned trekker. If you want to save your energy for the main trek, you could also hire a cab till Gallu Devi Temple, the starting point of the trek, instead of beginning at Mcleodganj. You’ll also find a few stalls selling refreshments on the way, so you can even break the trek into parts and rest a while on the way.

This is an ideal place to be with nature, to come closer to yourself and to seek peace. No need for an agenda here. Enjoy the warm sun in the day, and sit around a bonfire in the evening. Read a book, or write one – it is an ideal setting to feel inspired.

How to reach McLeodganj?

Reach Dharamshala which is a major town, 9 km before McLeodganj via overnight bus from New Delhi. Himachal Roadways and Himachal Tourism have regular bus services from Kashmiri Gate ISBT Delhi from 5 pm onwards. One can travel in Volvo bus also. From Dharamshala, there are regular local buses to McLeodganj every half hour, plying from 7 am to 8 pm. You can also take a shared cab to McLeodganj or Dharamkot.

The trek from Mcleodganj to Triund is a sharp one of over 1100 meters and it is absolutely worth it because of the refreshing walks amongst the Rhododendron and Oak forest. Town of Mcleodganj invites you to experience the vibrant Tibetan culture which is enjoyed by tourists from all over the world.
