Day Hike :
A beautiful refreshing day hike to Triund through Rhododendron forests can be done on horseback. Panoramic views of Bhagsu village, Mcleodganj, Dharamshala valley and distant views of Shivalik hills and plains of Kangra valley are a bonus, of course. Triund is a lush pasture at a 2,900-metre elevation. This is the base camp and acclimatization point for trekkers climbing the Inderahara point on Mt Dhauladhar. Dharamshala is a point of origin for a number of trekking expeditions that lead trekkers across Dhauladhar into the upper Ravi Valley and Chamba district.
Majestic mountains call out to you for the trek to Triund. Set out on this exciting trek and you will not be disappointed. On the enthralling 9 km trek you will cross the rugged villages of Rakkar and Dharamkot besides the craggy walking trails and the valley below. Stop for a fulfilling and delicious plate of maggie and a steaming cup of tea at the roadside dhabbas. The trek to the peak is certainly worth all the huffing and puffing. Offering you a gorgeous view of the entire range and the deep valley below, Triund is surrounded in surreal and breathtaking beauty. Once at the top, you can catch a glimpse of snow covered peaks against the backdrop of clear blue skies. There are small eateries where you can enjoy delicious maggie, pakora and hot cups of steaming tea. If you’d like to stay back and enjoy the serenity, there are small campsites at the top, you can plan a camp night amongst the wonders of nature. The trek takes upto 8 hours and is slightly strenuous. Make sure to carry a warm jacket, a umbrella or a raincoat for unpredictable rains showers.
