3 Days 2 Nights
Triund is perhaps the most popular trek for beginner level trekkers, and rightfully so. Set amidst the Dhauladhars of the Kangra Valley, this trek starts from the bustling town of McLeod Ganj in Himachal Pradesh. The route is well marked, with ample rest spots and makeshift cafes along the way that make sure that your first trek is nothing short of comfortable. Triund trek is a perfect weekend getaway from Delhi.
Hop on to the evening luxury bus from Delhi, and give yourself a good sleep in the comfortable ride to the hills, as you prepare yourself for one of the best adventures of your life ahead!
After reaching McLeod Ganj early in the morning, we start for the trek from our office. The starting point is McLeod Ganj, which is the home of Dalai Lama, and from there we begin our uphill journey (9 km). The entire trek uphill will take about 4-5 hours (lunch en-route). The climb is very easy with a few steep ascents here and there, with magnificent views giving you company throughout! After reaching Triund top, we explore the ridge and return back to our campsite (1 km below the ridge) and get ready for some piping hot dinner to warm us against the strong evening winds at the ridge. Go to your camp bed with a happy tummy, and a happier heart, surrounded by such picturesque vistas.
We wake up early morning to catch one of the best sunrises you will ever see, with the sun rays spilling over the snow-clad Dhauladhar Mountains. After breakfast, we begin our descent which will be much easier and faster than the climb up. Upon reaching McLeod Ganj, you are free to explore the city and its bustling markets selling beautiful trinkets like healing crystal jewellery, colourful yak wool apparels and much more! Board the evening Volvo bus to Delhi with a happy heart full of warm memories from this short but utterly eventful getaway!
