Triund Trek

One of the most well-known and magnificent treks in the Himalayas, the Triund trek is referred to as the heart or crown of Dharamshala and McleodGanj and is located at an altitude of 9350 feet. The nicest camping experience one could ever have is at the summit of Triund under a starry sky. The Bhagsu nag waterfall, McLeod Ganj’s tallest waterfall, can be traversed on foot. A stunning vista of the mighty Dhauladhar peaks and a wide-angle view of the Kangra valley can be seen from Triund, a lovely grassy alpine meadow at the top of the hill.


The Triund Trek is one of the most well-liked weekend treks from Chandigarh and Delhi. It is conceivably the simplest solo hike in the Himalayas. It is also incredibly attractive with stunning views of the Kangra valley and the snow-capped Dhauladhar peaks. For those who want to experience Himalayan hiking without any hassles, Triund is the best place to go. The hike is simple to complete in a single weekend. It’s a quick but steep hike to Triund. Walking between oak and rhododendron trees to cool down makes up for the difficult climb. The trail is a birdwatcher’s paradise because it is lined with forests that are home to a variety of songbirds. Since it’s an easy trek and is easily accessible from Dharamshala or McLeod Ganj, a lot of hikers take this trek, making it difficult to appreciate the peace and quiet of the location. It can also get crowded at the summit on weekends and during peak season. It is preferable to hike this trail on a weekday to enjoy its splendour. The village of McLeod Ganj, which is commonly referred to as “little Lhasa,” offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the colourful Tibetan culture.

Places to look out 

View of Dhauladhar and other peaks

Right when you begin the walk, you get to witness the Moon Peak, Rifle Horn, Arthur’s Seat, and the impressive Dhauladhar range in full view. 

Trek through mesmerising Pine forest

Even though this trek’s woodland stretch is brief, you will remember it for the magnificent forest section it takes you through. Rhododendrons, pine, and coniferous trees are all encountered throughout the route. The great opening of the ridge at the end of the tree line is a sight to behold after hiking through the forest.

Enjoy the beautiful sunset from the peak

The Triund trek’s sunset is arguably its most notable feature, and it is what inspires all hikers to remain the night and set up camp at the ridge. When you turn to face the back, you can see the sun sinking and some golden lights illuminating these mountain ranges.

Gateway for trekkers 

In contrast to other summit climbs, the Triund walk is not the last destination on the route. For lovers of trekking, there is much more to offer.
