Triund Trek Package

If you are a beginner, then find an expert guide or an experienced person. It will help you in safely completing. Only an expert guide can explain the latest guidelines issued by the government. For example, the government banned night camping at hill to maintain eco-balance. So the only option left is guest houses under the forest department.

Before planning for this trek, start working on your strength and eat healthy food. Check whether your body is flexible enough to accept the changes. Develop an environment of trekking at your home and practice daily. It will work as a prevention from possible injury.

Comfort comes first when it comes to trekking to hill. Wearing comfortable shoes helps in completing the trek easily. Change your shoes immediately if you feel any discomfort that can not be avoidable. Avoid shoes that can cause blisters.

Commonly, we forget to keep our favorite pair of shocks while backpacking. You are committing a mistake if you think comfortable shoes are enough to complete. So once you finalize the trekking shoe, pair up the right shocks with them. Check the material like fabric and necessary properties such as sweatproof and waterproof etc.

It is obvious that for an exciting trek, willpower and leg strength play a major role. Add bench press, squats, and other strength-building exercises to your daily schedule. Apart from leg strength, start working on willpower. Once you develop these elements, the Trek will become an exaggerating experience for you.

Every doctor suggests that walking is beneficial for our health. It keeps us physically fit and prepares us to map paths on the trek. Once you are a pro at walking, start practicing walking harder for trek. Develop an environment like Trek and become an excellent trekker.

If you think walking, exercising, and determination are enough, then let me tell you it is not. You will not get a complete idea of how trekking feels like. Whenever you practice walking, carry a backpack filled with the necessary trek items. Check how much weight you can lift comfortably.

Also, choose a backpack whose straps you can easily adjust while walking. After training, you will get used to carrying a backpack.

The use of lightweight walking poles while walking reduces pressure on your legs and thighs. It works as an additional leg that distributes the weight of the entire body. Apart from this, it has multiple uses, For example, keeping aside the vegetation and many others.

Water is the basic need of the human body. We have always been taught by our elders that keep water with ourselves. Trek drains all your energy and demands the correct fluid level in the body. Climbing up the hill results in increased breath, loss of fluid, and increased heartbeat. So, drinking the right amount of fluid helps in balancing all of the above results. Due to lifestyle changes, we forget to take enough water throughout the day. So keep your body hydrated by sipping a small amount of water at different time intervals throughout the day.

Your eating habits determine how long you will go. Your body demands more food when it comes to trekking up the hill. Practice eating a small and healthy meal at different points of the day. The best options to take on the trek are fruits that help in increasing your energy level. Avoid eating fried snacks and other unhealthy food items.

Fitness is the key to win against challenges that we encounter throughout the trek. You have to invest your valuable time and energy to reach the trekking point, and fitness makes it easier for you. Fitness allows you to squeeze out every drop of happiness and joy. All the above tips will help you in getting a lifetime trekking experience.

Different Meals Option at Hill Top

It is not possible to get many options in food at Triund hilltop. It takes a lot of effort to set up a restaurant and small tea stall on the hilltop. So the limited food shops you will get there sell at a higher cost. It is better to carry your food, energy-boosting fruits, and water to avoid dehydration. Keeping your water bottle helps in saving mountains from plastic waste. Also, bring back your plastic-waste with you in your backpack. Do not forget your responsibility towards mother Earth.

WIll the ATM be Available or Not?

Availability of ATMs is possible till Mcleodganj only. So keep the necessary cash while trekking up the hill.

It is possible only when you will get disconnection from your mobile phone. You will be in the moment. Still, if you want to enjoy mobile connections, BSNL offers the best services.

Hospital: Everything that challenges you comes with a negative side too. No doubt trekking gives us endless joy, it may turn into an emergency if not done with care.

The safety of women while trekking has been a topic of concern for many years. However, it is essential to understand that Triund Trek is relatively safe for girls who take necessary precautions.

The trail is well-marked and frequented by trekkers throughout the year, providing adequate company and assistance if needed. Many female travelers have successfully completed the trek without any hassle.

However, it's always crucial to know your surroundings and be cautious when traveling alone or in a group. It's advisable to travel with trusted companions or join organized groups led by experienced guides.

Additionally, carrying basic self-defense tools like pepper spray can also add an extra layer of security during the journey. Being mindful of local customs and dressing appropriately will help avoid unwanted attention.

Triund Trek is generally safe for women and couples as long as they remain vigilant and take appropriate measures towards their safety during the journey.

One of the common questions that many travelers ask before boarding on a trekking adventure is whether there are toilet facilities available along the way. When it comes to Triund Trek, this question often pops up as well. So, let's dive into the answer.

Firstly, it's important to note that Triund Trek is a moderately difficult trek and requires around 6-7 hours of uphill walking. Along the trail, you will come across several temporary stalls selling refreshments such as water and snacks but there aren't any permanent structures with toilets.

However, at Magic View Cafe - which is located at around 2/3rd distance from McLeodGanj - they have built some basic restrooms for their customers. It's also possible to use these restrooms even if you're not dining at the cafe by paying a small fee.

But once you cross Magic View Cafe towards Triund Hill Top or further down towards Laka Got Glacier or Indrahar Pass Base Camps, there won't be any toilet facilities available. Therefore, it's advisable to carry your own tissue papers/wipes and maintain hygiene by disposing them carefully in garbage bins only when you reach back civilization.

While toilet facilities may be limited during your trip on Triund Trek – being prepared can ensure that it doesn't become an issue during your journey!

Triund trek is a popular and scenic trek in Himachal Pradesh, India. It's a moderate level trek that requires some physical fitness and endurance. Before boarding on this adventure, there are a few things you need to know.

First of all, it's important to have the right gear for the trip. You'll need sturdy hiking shoes with good grip, warm clothes as temperatures can drop significantly at night and sunscreen lotion to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Secondly, make sure you carry enough water and snacks to keep yourself hydrated and energized throughout the trip. There are several shops along the way where you can find basic supplies like water bottles, chocolates and biscuits.

Thirdly, it's advisable to start early in the morning so that you have enough time to reach Triund before sunset. The trail gets crowded during peak season, so starting early will also help avoid traffic jams on narrow paths.

Fourthly, be prepared for sudden weather changes as mountain weather can be unpredictable. Carry raincoats or ponchos if there's a chance of rain.

Lastly but most importantly - respect nature! Do not litter or harm wildlife in any way. Carry your trash with you until you find dustbins or designated waste disposal areas.

By keeping these things in mind before boarding on your Triund Trek adventure – it will ensure an unforgettable journey while respecting nature!

Triund trek is a popular destination for adventure seekers and nature lovers. It offers stunning views of the Dhauladhar range, making it an ideal spot for camping and trekking. There are two ways to reach Triund: one is from McLeod Ganj, which is shorter but steeper, while the other is from Bhagsu Nag, which takes longer but has a gradual ascent.

The first route starts in McLeod Ganj and goes through Dharamkot village. From there, you'll follow a steep trail that winds its way up to Triund. This route covers around 7 km and can be completed in about 4-5 hours by experienced trekkers.

The second option involves starting at Bhagsu Nag village and taking the more gradual trail towards Triund. This route covers approximately 9 km and takes about 6-7 hours to complete. Although it's longer than the first route, it's less strenuous on your legs.

Both routes offer scenic views of valleys covered with tall trees as well as snow-capped mountains looming in the distance. You'll also come across several tea stalls along the way where you can grab some snacks or refreshments before continuing your journey.

When planning for a trek, one of the primary questions that come to mind is the cost. The total cost of Triund Trek INR 800-1000 depends on various factors like travel expenses, accommodation, food and guide charges.

The base camp for the trek is Mcleodganj, which can be reached by bus or taxi from nearby cities. The transportation cost varies depending on your location.

Accommodation options at McLeodganj range from budget hostels to luxury hotels. You can choose according to your preference and budget. However, most trekkers prefer staying in tents during the Triund trek itself.

Food prices differ as well; you may bring snacks or buy them along the way. For meals, there are small shops offering Maggi noodles and tea while walking up towards Triund Hill.

For guide services charges depend on whether you want an experienced local guide or not.

It's important to note that this estimated cost does not include any additional gear rental fees or souvenirs purchased during the trip.

Solo travel is a growing trend, and many adventure enthusiasts prefer to explore the world alone. However, when it comes to trekking in remote wilderness areas like Triund, safety should be your top priority.

While traveling solo has its benefits such as independence and freedom, it can also pose some risks. If you are planning a solo trip to Triund Trek, there are several things you need to consider before setting off on your journey.

Firstly, make sure you have enough experience and fitness level for this trek because it's not easy for beginners. You will be walking through rugged terrain with steep inclines and declines that require stamina and endurance.

Secondly, always inform someone about your itinerary including the estimated arrival time at different places so that they can raise an alarm if something goes wrong.

Thirdly, carry all essential items required during the trip such as water bottles, food supplies (snacks), medical kit etc., which will ensure that you are safe throughout your journey.

Taking alcohol to Triund trek is strictly prohibited and is considered illegal. The reason behind this prohibition is that the trail passes through a wildlife sanctuary, which means that any kind of littering or disturbance can have a negative impact on the environment.

Moreover, consuming alcohol at high altitudes can lead to dehydration and altitude sickness. This can be dangerous as it may cause nausea, headaches, dizziness and even unconsciousness.

In addition to that, carrying heavy bottles of alcohol will add extra weight to your backpacks making it difficult for you to carry them throughout the trek. It's important to keep in mind that the focus should be on enjoying nature while keeping it clean and preserving its beauty rather than indulging in alcoholic beverages.

Therefore, we strongly advise our trekkers not to bring any kind of alcoholic drinks during their trip. Instead, they are encouraged to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and other fluids such as tea or lemonade offered by locals along the way.

Triund Trek in McLeod Ganj : A complete guide

Standing over the green meadows at the top of Triund,  I was overwhelmed   by the sight of the snow covered  imposing face of the Himalayas. I can hardly ever forget that image! At the same time, it was natural for me to feel philosophical up there. At the top, it suddenly turns adventure into spirituality, a very unique experience indeed! However, in order to experience that unique feeling, one has to complete a 10 km long trek. Though the Himalayas offer scores of trekking options, Triund trek in McLeod Ganj is one of the moderate ones. If you are up for that experience, here’s a complete guide to the Triund trek in McLeod Ganj.

{To make your reading complete, here’s the link to our Triund trek diary:  Triund: Trekking in a garden }.  {For more such trekking plans, do check out:  Dzukou Valley Trek }

The base location: McLeod Ganj/ Dharamshala

The location of Triund near McLeod Ganj in Dharamshala couldn’t be any better. Its history, heritage, scenic views, cultural and spiritual vibes are reasons for me to go back again and again. It was established as a hill-station by the British in the later part of the 19th century. In fact, it’s named after a British lieutenant governor- David Friell Mcleod.  

{Read about another hill-station named after a British official:  Dalhousie }

It was only in the post-independence era, in 1959, Tibetan leader- His Highness the Dalai Lama sought political refuge in India. In an act of solidarity with the Tibetan freedom struggle, Indian government permitted to set up his capital in exile in McLeod Ganj. Since then,  McLeod Ganj has become a hub of Tibetan Buddhism, and is known as ‘Little Lhasa’ (the capital of Tibet).

On my part, I have a fondness for Buddhist philosophy as well as Tibetan culture, especially their colourful Monasteries.  Besides, Dharamshala is also home to tea gardens, heritage sites and much more. In many ways, it reminds me of  Darjeeling  (have look). Find a list of major tourist attractions in Dharamshala-McLeod Ganj in a section  below .

Triund Trek in McLeod Ganj: A fact sheet

Triund peak is 2850 meters (9350 feet) above sea level. The  route of  Triund trek in McLeod Ganj is 9-10 kilometers (one way) from the base to the top, and can be covered in 5-6 hours. If one starts early in the morning, one can complete the Triund trek in one day. However, a night-stay in a tent at the Triund peak overseeing the snowy mountains is an amazing experience not to miss.

For your information, some trekkers go much beyond Triund peak. They trek up to snow-line at 3500 meters (10,000 feet), and Indrahar pass at 4300 meters (14108 ft). Thus, if you are interested in trekking beyond Triund peak, have some more days in hand.

Triund Trek in McLeod Ganj: How to plan

We heard that trekkers do it in all seasons across the year. But in general, in my view, spring (March-April) is the best time. The temperature is just perfect, neither too cold nor too hot. Besides, clear skies mean the best views. And of course, not to forget the  Rhododendrons  ( Buraansh in Hindi). Because Rhododendron flowers bloom only in the spring.  Believe me, the walk among the Rhododendrons is absolutely enjoyable. 

triund-trekking-gang

Monsoons could be risky due to possibility of landslide/ rocks falling off. Besides, thick clouds block views of the valley. Winters would be too cold to enjoy, especially the night camping at the top. In the summer, day time trekking would be really difficult; but one can start in the wee hours of the morning.

Arranging the trek (with a guide or without):

Though one really doesn’t need a guide to trek, it’s good to have one if you are doing it the first time, or you are with family. The guide’s company provides all amenities like tents, blankets and food/ water, etc. They carry all the stuff by mountain-hardened horses. They charge approximately Rs. 1000 per person, including guide services, tents, sleeping gear, food, etc.

If you need a guide, you may contact Anil (we have his mobile phone number; just ask in the comment section).

To camp overnight or not:

No doubt, camping for the night at the top is a must do. The blanket of stars spread across the clear night sky makes it an unforgettable experience. The nearby snow-clad mountains are visible even in the darkness of night. And if it is a full moon night, one would enjoy sitting outside the tents or walking around the plateau. Plus, the experience of the morning-after is also beautiful. See in the picture below how a morning at the top looks like.

camping-triund-trek-mcleod-ganj

Alone or in a group:

While travelling in groups can be a little limiting (freedom) in general, I would say it’s more enjoyable trekking (and other adventure trips) in groups rather than alone. Moreover, trekking in group reduces the fear factor, and calms down the nerves.

The trek route and schedule

The two routes:.

There are two main routes to complete the Triund trek in McLeod Ganj:

  • While one route starts from Bhagsunag temple side, the other one starts from the Guna Devi temple.
  • Though the route that starts from Bhagsunag temple is a bit shorter than the other one, it’s steeper at places.
  • The route starting Guna Devi temple is longer, but has gentler slopes. However, in order to take this route, one needs to hire a vehicle to get dropped at Guna Devi temple, some 2-3 kms away. Else, add that distance in the trek itself, which makes it around 12+ kilometers.
  • In any case, both the routes have easy to moderate slopes at different points. 
  • Overall, I would suggest first timers to take the Guna Devi temple route.

triund-trek-mcleod-ganj

When to start:

  • In order to complete the Triund trek in McLeod Ganj in one day, one should start as early as possible in the day so as to reach the top by early afternoon. This way, one has some time in hand to spend at the top, and enough time to reach back McLeod Ganj before it’s dark.
  • If one is planning for night camping, the starting time can be a little late in the morning. But it’s always good to start early so as to avoid trekking in the afternoon sun, unless it’s winter or spring. 

The trekking path:

As Triund is a popular trek route in McLeod Ganj, the trekking path is well laid out. Moreover, unlike many trekking routes, one would not get lost on the way. At places, the path is like a stairway made of rocks/ stones. At other places, it’s just a gentle slope to hike. It’s only towards the end of the trek that the path becomes a little steep and a bit difficult, that’s only about 1 km. 

One thing that I loved particularly about the trekking path was the abundance of blooming Rhododendron trees. Interestingly, number of these trees kept increasing as we gained height. So much so that at one point, it just felt like trekking in a garden! You will experience the same if you are trekking in the spring.

rhododendrons-triund-trek-mcleod-ganj

The Midway rest points:

On the way, there are two proper halting stations, which really means two decent eateries. The first one is called the Magic point, approximately 2 kms from the starting point. 

Just ahead of the Magic point, look for a small off-route towards left side. Hike a bit to find a nice view point, perfect for photography. I liked a huge black rock there inching out of the hill surface like a cliff. It’s easy to climb up there and take cool clicks!    

The second one doesn’t have a name, but it’s like a little polythene covered snack point. After the second rest point, the trekking route becomes gradually more difficult.

magic-point-triund-trek-mcleod-ganj

How is it at the top:

Once you reach the top, it’s but obvious to be overwhelmed by the sight of those snow-clad Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. You will feel as if the grand mountains are smiling at you and are welcoming you to their home. Instantaneously, all the pain taken in the last 5-6 hours would vanish, and would seem totally worth it.

After a while, you will notice the lush green plateau beneath your feet. Huge pieces of boulders interspersing the meadows look fascinating!

  • By air: Gaggal airport, 15 kms away | Flights from Delhi and Chandigarh
  • By train: Joginder Nagar is the nearest station, 70 kms away

Where to eat:

The Clay Oven | Tibet Kitchen | Hummingbird cafe | Tibetan Mandala cafe | Moonpeak cafe | Nick’s Italian Kitchen | Jimmy’s Italian | Illiterati Books & Coffee | Crepe Pancake | Four Seasons Cafe

Dress for the trek:

  • Wear comfortable fitting clothes. Avoid tight-fitting clothes like jeans. 
  • Put on layers (sweaters, jackets etc) as per seasonal requirement. 
  • The weather can deteriorate any time at the top. So, it’s good to carry some woolens even during the summers. 
  • Trekking shoes, or at least good sports shoes with grip is a must. 
  • Besides, a cap or some kind of head gear is advisable. 
  • Further, sunglasses are a good addition. 

magic-point-triund-trek-mcleod-ganj

Big question: Is there a toilet up there? 

Answer: No; so, you know what to do, right! (The Forest Deptt. is not allowing any construction work at the top. However, somewhere below the peak, some trek operators have toilet facilities). In any case, believe me, toilet would not matter; everyone manages just well, out in the open. 

Things to carry:

  • If you are not on a guided trek, of course you have to carry the tent, blanket, food etc.
  • A torch, a lighter and an umbrella would be handy
  • A walking/ trekking stick is optional (we didn’t need them)
  • Some dry snacks/ energy bar
  • Water bottle; not too many, just one to start with. Their weight can be annoying. In any case, there are small shops at 2-3 points on the way.
  • Above all, carry basic first-aid kit; sun-screen lotion, etc.
  • While you might want to carry a lot of things, control your urge. It will be better to keep yourself light rather than stuffed.

Things to explore in McLeod Ganj/ Dharamshala

By the way, after completing the Triund trek in McLeod Ganj, you better have some more time to explore that wonderful place. There are so many interesting places to see and things to do! Here are a few that I would suggest.

Natural sites:

  • Naddi view point; nice to walk around in the wilderness enjoying the views
  • If you love waterfalls, hike 1-2 kms to reach Bhagsu Waterfalls
  • Dharamkot, a sleepy village to leisurely hangout
  • Dharamshala Tea Gardens; enjoy the view, and shop some great tea
  • Dal lake, a cute little lake
  • If you love paragliding, you have to travel a bit more to reach Bir- Billing, the paragliding site, 75 kms away.

dharamshala-tea-gardens-ways-of-responsible-travel

Cultural Experiences:

  • For a great spiritual experience, visit the Dalai Lama temple complex. Find out if he is around, and speaking at the temple one evening
  • Namgyal Monastery, a beautiful Buddhist temple
  • Shakti Peeth Chamunda Devi temple; 25 kms
  • Tashi Jong Monastery; 56 kms away
  • Baijnath Shiva temple; 60 kms away
  • Conveniently, the last three places are actually on the same route, i.e. towards Bir.

Other sites of interest:

  • The Tibet Museum; a great collection of Tibetan artefacts and culture
  • Dharamshala Cricket Stadium: A picturesque ground with the Himalayas in the backdrop
  • Kangra Art Museum; rich collection of traditional miniature paintings.

Concluding Notes

Triund trek in McLeod Ganj is really enjoyable with gentle slopes and great views of the Himalayas all around. It’s long enough to give that satisfaction of completing a proper trek. At the same time, i t’s not too long to deter non-regulars to undertake this trek. If you have never done trekking in mountains, Triund trek in McLeod Ganj is a great option to start the journey.

I would suggest to plan your trek in the spring season- late March to April end, especially because of pleasant weather and the Rhododendron flowers. Do plan for a overnight camping at the top. Further, icing on the cake would be a full moon night. If possible, do it in a small group- your best buddies. 

Besides, please don’t forget to have some extra time (at least two days) on hand to explore places in and around McLeod Ganj. Have a great time and thank me later!

The trail is marked with red and white paint, and there are several small tea stalls along the way where you can take a lunch break and refill your water bottle. The trek to Triund takes about 3-4 hours, depending on your pace. Once you reach the Karthani also known as base of Triund, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, as well as a sense of accomplishment for completing the trek. Make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, and warm clothing, as the weather can be unpredictable at high altitudes. Sunset :- Watching the sunset from Triund can be a truly breathtaking experience. As the sun dips below the horizon, the sky is painted with a palette of vibrant colors, ranging from deep reds and oranges to golden yellows and purples. The views from Triund, located high in the Himalayan mountains, are truly panoramic, and you will be able to see for miles in all directions. The peaceful atmosphere and stunning natural surroundings make Triund an ideal spot to watch the sunset and unwind after a day of hiking. It is a great time to sit back, relax, and take in the beauty of the surrounding landscape.

However, taking the HRTC buses is the most dependable choice, and tickets may be purchased online.

By Air: Gaggal Airport, located around 22 kilometers from Mcleodganj, is the closest airport.

By Train: Mcleodganj is 90 kilometers away from the closest train station, Pathankot. From there, you can take a bus or a taxi.

Best time to Visit

Triund Trek is open most of the year, except for January and February, when heavy snow sometimes closes the trail. The best times to trek to Triund are generally regarded as the summer months of April, May, and June, and the post-monsoon months of September and October. The weather is pleasant during these months, making them perfect for camping and hiking.

The monsoon season lasts from July to August, and hiking is not recommended during this period as the trail becomes slippery and dangerous. These months, however, offer the most gorgeous scenery, with lush green meadows and a variety of flowers and hues blooming.

The winter months of November through January are typically avoided because of the intense weather and significant snowfall. Trekking is quite risky and requires expert knowledge, appropriate gear, and guides during these winter months.

The trek's gorgeous forest segment leaves an indelible impression on every visitor, making it popular among nature and adventure enthusiasts of all ages. The sunset beauty is undoubtedly the most memorable aspect of the trek, attracting trekkers to stay overnight. Triund also serves as a gateway to numerous other trekking attractions, including the snow line, the Lakha Cave, and the Indrahar Pass.

Weekend getaways to the mountains are always refreshing, especially if you stay in a noisy and polluted city! Triund trek is one of the easiest and most stunning treks in Himachal Pradesh . The trek starts from McLeodganj near Dharamshala, which is said to be the place where Dalai Lama stayed in exile when he came from Tibet to India. The place showcases the vibrant and distinct Tibetan culture, and you will be fascinated to see the splendid monasteries, prayer flags and wheels, and the lamas. The landscape offers you alluring views of Dhauladhar Ranges, namely Mun, Rifle Horn, Arthur’s seat and Slab. Triund is accessible in all the seasons, in fact it looks like a wonderland when covered in a blanket of snow. In summers it is all about verdant meadows. You can choose to return from the trail that passes along the upper reaches of the Bhagsu waterfalls. Hiking down beside the gushing waters will make your trip more memorable.

You can start the trek from McLeodganj or Dharamkot or Bhagsunag. The 9 KM trail from Dharamkot takes you through Galu Devi Temple. You will witness some of the most beautiful vistas of the valley, and the sight of the Dharamsala Cricket stadium from a bird’s eye view will take your breath away! After a few steep ascents through the forest, you will reach the lush meadows of Triund Top. The sight of the snow covered mountains so close will make your fatigue go away! We will go further to Laka Got to get more panoramic views of the Kangra Valley. Night camping at Triund top will be one of the best camping experiences you will ever have. Sleep underneath the blanket of a starry sky and admire the inky blue sky which is a rare sight in the cities! Know more about other popular options for Trekking in Dharamsala Itinerary for Triund Trek: Day 01:   Dharamkot - Triund (2875 M) | 9 km  After breakfast on your own, start walking from Dharamkot. It is steep ascent for 4 hours through mixed forest of oak, rhododendron and deodar trees to Triund. Packed lunch enroute. Arrive at the mata campsite and check in to the campsite. Dinner will be served at the camp later that evening. Day 02: Trek to Triund Top - Back to Dharamkot After breakfast we start hiking to the Triund top. Triund is an alpine meadow situated on top of a ridge from where we have superb view of the peaks of Dhauladhar mountain on one side and Kangra valley on the other. After spending sometime at the top, we will start heading back to the same place we started the hike from. It is downhill walk for three to four hours to Dharamkot. Trek ends at Dharamkot. FAQs for Triund Trek Is Triund trek an easy trek? The difficulty level of Triund trek is easy. You will reach Triund Top in around 3-4 hours, depending on your pace. The trail runs through lush green forests and the view from the top is stunning, making the effort worthwhile.

The first 6 km are not very exhausting, but the last 2 km, after passing the Snowline Cafe, involves a very steep incline as you push to the top. This part of the trek is popularly called the 22 curves because of 22 sharp turns that take you to your camp. The presence of snow during winter increases the difficulty. What is the best time to go? The best time to visit Triund is during the months of May-June & September-October. If you want the experience of trekking in winter, then you can go between January-March when the well-defined paths leading to the top are covered with snow. During the summer, the weather is very pleasant with clear views of the Dhauladhar Range. How much time does it take to reach Triund? It will take anywhere between 3-6 hours to reach Triund Hill Top depending on how fast you walk. The trek can be completed in a day too, however we suggest you to stay or a night or two camping under the starry sky and that's what most trekkers prefer. What kind of shoes should I be wearing? Triund trail has a well-laid out path, but a good pair of water-resistant hiking boots with good ankle support will make your trekking experience better on any mountain trek. Hiking boots will help prevent feet sores and will give a good grip as you climb to the top, but make sure you break in your boots before starting the trek. What kind of clothes should I be wearing? Whenever you are on mountains, you should always carry some warm clothes that will protect you from the cold, because no matter what season it is, the weather on the hills changes very quickly so it is best to be prepared. The basic requirements are trek pants, an extra pair of socks, one or two jackets and a poncho, incase it rains.

Reviews for Triund Trek in Himachal Pradesh

Wonderful experience. Triund Trek is a must go. Thank you!

Best experience ever had. Never disappoint us.

The Triund trek you can very easily start in McLeodganj as well as Dharamkot. I went to McLeodganj on a planned vacation and then joined the trek people from there for the Triund trek. You can visit Dharamshala as well before you begin this one. An extended vacation is a brilliant idea, trust me. I booked this trek with Adventure Nation because of a friend who had gone with these guys before. Wasn't disappointed at all. The food and the overnight stay plan was thoroughly arranged and executed. I had loads of fun on this trek. I would definitely recommend Adventure Nation to the rest of my friends who are interested in trekking in Himachal Pradesh. Especially the Triund one, it's available all-round the year without any major seasonal change!

Triund trek near Dharamshala is a very sweet, short weekend getaway if you're looking for one. Take the time out in the sweet summers to go on this one with your family or friends and have the time of your life. This place when covered in snow looks especially amazing! The views are to die for! Dhauladhar range and the Bhagsu waters are obviously the highlights. But the underrated visual is the panoramic views of the Kangra valley. They're breathtaking. McLeodganj is already very popular for its brilliant looking landscape as it is. This one is a much needed getaway.

Hi, first of all thank you Adventure Nation for giving me this. I booked this when I saw a post about it on Facebook. It was definitely a much needed and long overdue getaway from the hectic work schedule that seems to drain all the energy out of us. Losing yourself as you go back to nature to find relief in it will never disappoint. This one has all the markers for being a great weekend trip. It is short, it has great views of McLeodganj, Dhauladhar and the Bhagsu waterfalls and the Triund top. It is not a trek that will take lots of days to finish and will exhaust you. Because if you're looking for a getaway that refreshes your dampened spirits, you need something that gives you enough time and inspiration to re-energize and have fun while at it. This one is definitely it! So go for it if a weeekend getaway is what you're looking for!

I made the trek to Triund and was so pleasantly surprised by all that it had to offer! The Tibetan monasteries and the weather throughout this trek were definitely the highlights for me. I had so much fun exploring the lush greens of this region, the virgin forests that are unending. What makes up for the exhaustion during the day is the feeling of lying under the starry skies at night! Best feeling in the world. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Thanks for this trek.

Triund trek is a breather for many. If you have done one trek to anywhere in Himachal Pradesh before, you will breeze through this one. This trek is literally filled with picturesque locales. The whole vibe is so enriching. I loved the food and camping arrangement too. Loved all the campsites! Would advise you to bring some ready made munchies for the trek. A great experience overall!

What a paradise on earth! You will have to reach McLeodganj on your own to begin this one. So we made a trip to McLeodganj and just extended it further to Triund. It?s like 2 days long so you don?t really have to take too many leaves for this one. What a little heaven this one! Loved the whole vibe. And if you like to interact with locals, this is an ideal trek for you! Do not miss out on the multiple famous tibetan monasteries they will take you to

Triund trek was a weekend getaway for me. And honestly, it just turned out to be so much more. I am from Himachal Pradesh so I was really nostalgic about the whole experience anyway. Loved the itinerary, basically covered everything we could or should on our way to Triund trip. The trek is not that exhausting and can be done easily by first timers. The feeling of reaching that top of the Triund is so great! Loved this experience with you, Adventure Nation

I was traveling solo so I was kind of nervous about this but I was assured by the agents at Adventure Nation that there will be other people there traveling solo. So I went fingers crossed. Cannot say I was disappointed even a bit. Loved the trek, loved the whole experience, got to visit so many places on such a short duration. Definitely will recommend for your weekends!

Triund is an amazing place to visit!Our stay was taken good care of and the common washrooms were hygienic. The cooked food was tasty! Guides seemed to be trained and experienced, as they patiently explained the tour in detail, and helped us throughout the trek. Thank you Adventure Nation for a great trip!

The Travelling Slacker

Triund Trek: All You Need to Know

Trekking has always been one of those activities that my non-pathetic alter ego has yearned for. But rarely does it get an opportunity to indulge in the same. The regular readers will be aware of the first-ever trek of any value or consequence done for this blog, the Valley of Flowers .

After more than two years, I was again back in the Himalayas and as I’d mentioned in the previous post, McLeod Ganj spoiled us with food . So, to overcome the socialist guilt of excessive consumption, I decided to undertake the Triund Trek the next day along with Su Ko who has always been a bigger sinner of gluttony.

We did have a bigger than usual breakfast at the hotel in McLeod Ganj but I think it was fair because we were going to have a tough time. We first moved from McLeod Ganj to Dharamkot by hiring an auto rickshaw. It is a smaller settlement barely a couple of KMs away and it is better to take some vehicle to this point to save time. At this point, the real trek starts and it is 7KMs from here to the peak of Triund, a distance I rarely walk at one go even on the plains.

The first few yards of the trek are not that difficult. The ambiance was not lush green like the monsoons but had a more demure green look with occasional reddish hues of the autumn. The moon was visible even in the broad daylight due to the clear and unpolluted sky. We occasionally came across other trekkers, small settlements and mini caravans of the locals with solitary donkeys.

One particular view was especially attracted my attention. It was a small plot of terrace cultivation that could be seen from a distance. There was also a steep trail leading towards it and there was also a small hut and I wondered how great it would be to live such a secluded existence. As we moved on, that particular plot kept becoming clearer and after a couple of tiring hours, I suddenly noticed that we’ve reached a higher spot than the plot in question.

8534179558 dacd12ef56 o

The progress was slow and tedious. Years of lethargic urban lifestyle was showing its colours. The sun was warm but the shades were chilly and the lone water bottle was quickly getting empty. But with every turn the Dhauladhars became clearer with vibrant fall colours.

8534179892 7a8ea56f4d o

From Triund it is possible to move higher up to certain other locations and in fact it is one of the ancient routes connecting Kangra with Chamba. But the popular day trek for dummies is supposed to end here itself. We were tired, famished and sleepy. We asked one of the shopkeepers if we can get anything to eat, he offered us Maggi and Gatorade and we eagerly lapped up this triumph of globalization. We waited for an hour but the fog refused to go away and so the pseudo aerial shots that I fantasized about were never possible.

8534179274 977e89a0e8 o

While coming down I suddenly saw a goat. After a few steps, I saw a couple more and finally I noticed an entire herd of mountain goats. I always knew that the goats are capable of good balancing acts. The first-ever circus I ever visited during my childhood had a goat walking on wire. But it was impressive seeing so many of them swarming the steep mountain and soon I realized that they were not alone. There was a shepherd guiding them but we only heard his voice. But we did see a shepherd dog keeping a close eye on them. I must confess that this was the most stately dog I have even seen in my life.

8533069733 c0e354a9d3 o

While coming back, we stopped for tea at the midpoint. There was a small house cum shop and also a small temple. There we found a lonely British guy who called himself Garry. Apparently, he has been coming to India for almost a couple of decades. He works for a few months, saves money and rushes to India. And he was planning to spend that night at that shack in the midst of nowhere. This is how the mountains seduce people! Anyways, the last leg of the trek was eventless and I just got a few photographs clicked with silly poses to be used as display pics in various social media profiles.

The Dharamshala sojourn ends basically with this trek. You can read the guide below for complete information on Triund Trek. On the other hand, if you need more information on Dharamshala including what to do and where to eat, read this guide on Dharamshala .

Triund Trek: A Complete Guide

Where exactly is the triund trek located.

Triund is a popular day trek near McLeodganj (Dharamshala). However, serious trekkers can also go beyond Triund Top to Indrahar Pass and then cross over to Chamba District.

How long is the Trek?

Triund is around 9 kms from McLeod Ganj. You can save time by hiring an auto rickshaw to Dharamkot and then trekking the final 7 kms.

Can we camp atop Triund?

Back in 2012-2013 when I visited this area for the first time, both food and tents were easily available at the top. However, in order to counter littering and other environmental issues, camping was banned at Triund Top !

So, as of now, as far as I understand, Triund camping is not possible and you need to start early in the morning and come back to Dharamkot or McLeodganj before it is dark to be safe.

Any Alternative Camping Site?

I am not completely sure about it but as far as I know, you can go ahead of Triund and camp near Snowline . It is a point around 30 mins ahead of Triund, on the way to Indrahar Pass. In the good old days, there used to be one guy running a shack turned cafe turned camping site here. Not sure if he is still there!

So, what exactly is this Indrahar Pass?

Indrahar Pass is a 4300-meter high mountain pass connecting Kangra and Chamba districts. You will need multiple days for this and the route goes through Triund, SNoiwline, Laqa Got, and Lahesh Caves before finally reaching Indrahar Pass. People generally camp at SNowline and then the Cave.  I once made a failed attempt to Indrahar . Hopefully, I will complete it someday.

How much time does it take?

The ascent should take 4-5 hours depending on your physical ability. The descent will be faster. In any case, you will have to spend one whole day. Start early in the morning and try to come back before it’s too dark to be on the safer side.

What are the prerequisites for the trek?

It is one of the easy to moderate treks you will find in the Himalayas. But if you are not a regular trekker, make sure that you’re physically fit enough. Also, carry warm cloths and water with you. Earlier, there used to be shacks offering food along the route and at the top too. After the camping ban, I am not fully sure about that.

What is the Best time for Triund Trek?

It can be done throughout the year. Try the spring or early summer for the best colours. I did it once in November and once in October and they were comfortable too. But the extreme winter will be more challenging with low temperature and fog but people try it in Jan-Feb too in order to witness snow.

Guides for Triund Trek

You generally can do it yourself as the trail is well-marked. But if you must take one just inquire the travel agents in McLeod Ganj .

Lovely Images.

I have been to Mcleo and Dharamkot two time, this time I am planning to trek Triund in this may month and I am alone. Can you tell me from your experience would it be safe to trek Triund alone?

Thanks for dropping by… it should be fine even if you go alone if you are physically fit… it gets a bit hectic towards the last few yards… carry some water…

Very good post. I myself visited Triund and trekked further ahead to Ilaqa Snow line. It was an awesome experience. Your photos look terrific especially the clear sky. When I visited it was overcast and bit gloomy an absolute nightmare for photography. I liked your formatting especially the FAQs and will definitely imbibe it in my forthcoming travelogues including Triund with your kind permission 🙂 Of course I won’t copy the content and anyway I started from Naddi.

' src=

Hey! How about trekking at this time? Do you think monsoons will ruin t or what? Are there any arrangements to stay uphill?

I think it is fine… it is one of the easier treks… just get raincoats and shoes with good grip…

Ideally you can come back from Triund on the same day… but if you want to stay up there, I think there is a Forest guest house and some other private provisions too…

Triund Trek

Triund Trek

Let’s embark on a journey to one of the most popular and adventurous trails of Himachal Pradesh. Triund trek is considered as one of the easiest treks in entire Himachal Pradesh. Perched at an elevation of 2828 m above sea level is worth trekking when you will feel the world under your feet from the top. Walking through the mystical dense pine forest and reaching the end of the ridge will soak you out to a broader magical world. You will feel like the magical wardrobe of the Chronicles of Narnia, which landed up in a completely different world where you will see Moon peak, Rifle Horn, Arthur’s Seat, and the mighty Dhauladhar range. The sunset from the top of the Triund Hills is the main attraction of the trek. The changing colours of the sky from orange to pink are something you would not want to end the show.

Triund Trek is easily accessible from McLeodganj and Dharamshala. For this trek, McLeodganj is the base to start the trek of Triund. Also, two villages Bhagsu and Gallu, are nearby McLeodganj to start the trek. In addition, there is another trail to the Triund trek from Dharamkot. The trail has beautiful magnificent views throughout the journey.

The total distance of the Triund trek is 5.45 km and is perfect for beginners. At Triund trek near Bhagsu waterfall, the path is steep and slippery, so better be careful and not get injured. However, most of the route is quite easy to cover.

To beat the scorching sun in the plains, tourists often visit from March to June. This also cuts down the carrying of extra luggage full of warm clothes. During summer, you can begin the trek with a light T-shirt only, but carry a light jacket as the temperature goes down during night time.

Triund Trek: Here Is A Complete Guide For A Solo Experience 

Photo of Pragya Singh

Triund trek - Triund is situated in Kangra region of Himachal Pradesh

Why should you go for triund trek - Triund is a green alpine meadow situated on top of a hill from where you have splendid views of majestic Dhauladhar mountains and of Kangra valley.

Triund is easily one of the most popular treks around Dharamshala. The best part about Triund trek is it can easily be done solo due to its well defined route. The relatively easy trail and with magnificent views of Dhauladhar ranges on one side and of Kangra valley on another side it becomes an easy introduction to the treks for beginners.

But, it doesn’t disappoint the experienced trekkers as well because the trekking does not end at Triund. If you are a trekking enthusiast then you can trek further to Lahesh cave and then to indrahar pass.

Trek to Lahesh cave is another 5-6 km from Triund top and takes upto 4-5 hrs as the elevation increases. Lahesh cave is at an altitude of 3500 mtrs.

You can even trek further to Indrahar pass from Lahesh cave which is at 8-9 km from caves and takes about 6-7 hrs. Indrahaar pass is at an altitude of 4300 mtrs so the terrain gets more elevated and ascent gets steep.

The nights at Triund are so beautiful with star lit sky and the all lit up Kangra valley that it surely won’t let you sleep.

The views of Dhauladhars are so close in Triund that it’s bound to leave you astounded!

Trek difficulty - Easy

Duration of trek - 2 days with camping at the top but can also be done as a day trek

Nearest road/rail head - There is well defined road/rail/air connectivity to Dharamshala and then to Mc-leod Ganj from where the trek starts. The nearest airport is Gaggal airport which is at 18km from Mcleod Ganj. There are flights to Gaggal airport from all major cities. You can easily get buses or shared cabs from airport to Mcleod Ganj.

Must Read: triund

The nearest railway connectivity is at Pathankot which is 85 kms away from Dharamshala and you can easily get buses and shared cabs to reach Dharamshala. It takes around 3-4 hrs to reach.

There are a lot of train options available from Delhi to Pathankot – Delhi-Pathankot express, Delhi-Jammu to name a few. Train journey from Delhi-Pathankot is of 10-11 hrs.

Those who are driving from Delhi will take 9-10hrs to reach Mcleod Ganj and hence should arrive a day prior to trekking day. There are bus options available from Delhi, one can easily get buses from Kashmiri gate ISBT/Paharganj to McleodGanj and will take 10-11 from bus to reach McleodGanj

Total trek distance - Trek to triund starts from Mcleod Ganj with total trek distance of 8-9 km one way but you can also ride till Gallu Devi temple (1st check-point of trek) in a shared cab/taxi/ auto but they charge more due to bad road condition. You can save 1- 2 hrs by taking a cab/auto ride till Gallu Devi temple and then starting the trek

Best time to trek - March till December excluding the monsoon months of June-July. Jan and February is a heavy snowfall month and hence should be avoided

Average temperature - Pleasant summers with clear blue skies and an average temperature of 25-30 deg during the day but nights get colder with an avg temp of 8-10 deg so it’s advised to carry few warmers for the trek. It’s good to come prepared for chilly evenings and a slight possibility of rain during the summers.

But, Winters are unpredictable so it is good to check the weather conditions prior to the start of the trek as there may be a possibility of closed road midway in trail due to heavy snowfall

Highest elevation of the trek - Triund is at an altitude of 2800 mtrs

Handy tips for trekkers - Carry a lighter backpack with just few warmers as the temperature gets cold during the night but is pleasant and warm during the day.

Carry few snacks and a water bottle as you’ll come across 2 cafes on your last 2-3 km stretch of Triund

Also, if one is not comfortable in carrying a tent then it can be easily rented for a night from the Triund top. If you reach early afternoon at top then you can easily rent a tent at 500-600 INR (do negotiate with them if quoted anything higher than this) with sleeping bags but the price increases if it’s crowded so try and reach early

Forest permits required/ Entry or Trek fee? - No permits are required for this trek. There is no entry/trek fee needed for Triund trek

How to recognize the starting point of trek? - The starting point of the trek is Galu Devi temple , you can hire a taxi till Galu or trek from Mcleod Ganj to Galu. Trek from Mcleod Ganj to Galu Devi temple is a 1-1.5 hr walk on a smooth trail.

You can also trek from Bhagsu Nag, you can follow a steep trek on the left of German Bakery which goes through shops and a temple then to Bhagsu Nag village and finally ends on the back-side of the Gallu Devi temple, from where the trek to Triund starts

Stay/camping options for overnight treks- To camp at Triund top, there are a lot of stay options available. There is a government guest house at the top which can be booked either in advance at forest department office in Dharamshala or can be booked at the triund top subject to availability. Reserve forest dept. rest house for Triund Hill stay at the Forest Complex near and opposite to General Post Office Dharamsala and Police Station (If you plan to stay up in Triund for one or two days, you can reserve room for500 INR or 9 USD in forest rest house triund, from Divisional Forest Officer at this phone number 01892-224887 and email enquiry at [email protected] but prefer to call or direct visit).

There are options to camp as well, as the tea/maggi shops at the top rent out the tents, so no need to carry tent if you want to make your backpack light. It would cost you 500-600 INR for a tent with sleeping bag, however if you reach late in evening they might increase the price so advised to reach in early afternoon

Food availability on the trail - A lot of small tea shops are there on the trail and in the last 2-3km stretch you’ll come across 2 cafes – magic view café and Best view café

Ending point of the trek - Trek ends at Triund hill top but those who want to trek further can go further till Lahesh cave and then to Indrahar pass.

After the last 2 checkpoint (Magic view café and Best view café) and trek of 1-2 kms, you will see a vast empty green meadow surrounded with Dhauladhar mountains , some tea shops and a govt guest house and you know that you have reached the Triund top

Return route from end point - From the Triund top you can take the same trail back to Gallu Devi temple and from there to town of Mcleod Ganj. Since it is a well defined trail and with some cafes enroute you can easily trek back to the town.

Day to Day description of the trek -

Day 1: Trek from McleodGanj to Triund

Altitude: Triund top is at an altitude of 2800 metres

Time taken: 6-7 hrs if you start trekking from Mcleod Ganj. However, you can also take a ride till Gallu Devi Temple and then start the trek which will save you 1-2 hrs.

Time taken till 1st check point Gallu Devi temple is about 1-1.5 hrs and from Gallu Devi temple to the next check point Magic view café and best view café point, it takes about 2-3 hrs. The last stretch is of 1-1.5 hrs to triund top from magic view café.

Trek gradient: the start of the trail is simple as it is a plain road of stones and a flat walk but the last 1 hr stretch is a steep ascent, has tiring curves and tests the stamina.

Terrain type: Terrain starts with rhododendron oaks on side and leads into the forest. The trail takes you through the beautiful mixed forest of oak, deodar and rhododendron trees and gradually opens up with views of Dhauladhars. The last 3-4 km is a trail with splendid views of Dhauladhars and Kangra valley.

Trail description: the 1st check-point of the trek is Gallu Devi Temple which is a walk of 1-1.5 hrs from mcleodganj, the trail till here is a plain walk and takes you through the deodar forests and after this point the Dhauladhars comes into the view.

The next checkpoint are the two cafes - magic view café and best view café which comes after 2-3 hrs of walk from Galu devi temple. As the name suggests it sure does offer the astounding views of Dhauladhars and Kangra valley. The trail till here is also simple with elevation at certain points.

After these two cafes the ascent gets steep with tiring curves and the last 1-2 km is the steepest and consumes the most energy and time.

Landmarks on the way: Gallu Devi Temple to start the trail then after 5-6 km onto the trail you’ll come across 2 cafes – Magic view and best view cafe

Water sources: it is advised to carry your own water bottle and re-fill it at the Gallu Devi check point; alternatively water bottle can also be bought at the cafes in the trail but you need to keep yourself hydrated till you reach the café so suggested to carry your own also.

There is no option of normal or filtered or stream water on the trail so apart from your own water bottle the only option is to purchase the bottled water at the tea shops enroute.

So, go solo and get closer to the mountains :)

A Guide to the Triund Trek in McLeodGanj + Insider Tips (2024)

Triund Trek in McLeodGanj

If you’re planning on doing the Triund Trek in McLeodGanj, Dharamshala, you have come to the right place!

McLeodCanj, in the state of Himachal Pradesh, is most famous for being the home of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet. This town is close to the city of Dharamshala (a flight or night bus away from Delhi ) and tourists from all over the world come here to learn more about Buddhism and Tibetan culture.

There are plenty of interesting things to do in McLeodGanj , and this town is also home to one of the best Himalayan treks to do on your own: the trek to Triund Hill.

In this guide, you will find everything you need to know if you’re planning on trekking to Triund. You can hike to Triund in 1 or 2 days . I did this hike by myself in one day, but it is also possible to camp at Triund and hike back the next day, but more about this later!

How to do the Triund Trek in McLeodGanj

View on the way to Tirund Hill in McLeodGanj

There are two hiking trails to reach Triund Hill, and they both start in Bhagsu, which is a 20 to 30-minute walk from McLeodGanj.

While nearly everyone takes the easiest trail to hike to Triund and Back, I highly recommend making a loop and taking the easy trail to hike up and the difficult trail to hike back down.

I did it the other way around and took the difficult trail to hike up. This was my favourite one, as I only encountered two other hikers and found the landscape more beautiful here.

This guide describes how to hike up the easier way and hike back down the more difficult way. It speaks for itself that you can also do the hike the other way around as I did, though.

Tip: The way to Triund can easily be found using Maps.me. This app comes in particularly handy for the more difficult trail, as the path isn’t always as straightforward here.

Do you need a guide to hike to Triund?

Although you can hire a guide to do this trek, this is not necessary and many people hike independently. The path is easy to follow and the hike is not too difficult.

However, if you don’t have much hiking experience and would prefer to do the hike with a guide, you can book the guided Triund trek on GetYourGuide. This trek takes 2 days and includes a guide, camping and food.

Hiking from McLeodGanj to Triund

Triund Hill in Himachal Pradesh

If you’re starting in McLeodGanj, you will first have to head to Bhagsu , which is 2,5 km (1.5 mi) from McLeodGanj. You can either get here by walking or by taking a taxi.

From Bhagsu, you will have to hike (or continue the taxi drive) all the way up to the Gallu Devi Temple . This is where you will find the start of the path to Triund. It all depends on your personal pace, but it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to get from Bhagsu to Gallu. The right path can easily be found either by asking a local or using Maps.me.

From here on, it is pretty straightforward. There are arrows marking the way to Triund and it is difficult to get lost, as there’s only one path.

It takes a total of approximately 4 to 6 hours to reach Triund (the total distance is around 10 km or 6.2 mi), depending on your personal pace.

It is good to know that there are some shops and restaurants on the trail from Gallu to Triund.

Hiking to Triund Hill

Once you reach Triund, you will have a beautiful view of the Dhauladhar Mountain Range . This includes a view of Moon Peak, Riflehorn and Arthur’s seat.

It is quite big there and this is a nice place to stay for a while (or camp if you want to do the trek in 2 days). By the time I reached Triund, the sky wasn’t clear anymore and you couldn’t really see the mountains, but this is what it looks like on a clear day:

Triund Hill on a clear day

Camping at Triund (optional)

It is possible to camp at Triund if you would like to do the hike in 2 days, although it is possible to do it in 1 day too. I didn’t stay the night at Triund myself, but I’ve heard it is amazing, as you will be able to see the sunset/sunrise and sleep under the stars.

If you want to camp at Triund , it is good to know that you can rent a tent and sleeping bags in the shops there. If you’re visiting the place during the high season, at the weekend or in the holidays, it is better to book in advance, though, as the tents might be booked out (just ask the place where you’re staying in McLeodGanj to book it for you).

Another option is to stay at the government guesthouse . This place can be booked at the Forest Department Office of Dharamshala (+91 1892-224887).

Camping at Triund

Hiking further: the Laka Glacier Trek (optional)

I didn’t do this myself, but once you reach Triund, it is possible to hike further and do the Laka Glacier Trek. This is a 2 km (1.2 mi) long, steep uphill trek and it is quite strenuous.

This being said, this trek will take you higher along the breathtaking landscapes of the Dhauladhar snow-clad mountains and Kangra Valley. As its name predicts, the Laka Glacier Trek ends at the Laka Glacier, which stands 3,200 m (10,498 ft) above sea level.

It is good to know that you will need 2 or 3 days if you decide to hike to this glacier.

Hiking back to McLeodGanj

View of Bhagsu from Triund

To hike back to McLeodGanj, you can follow the Triund – Karthani Trail , on the southern side of Triund Hill. This trail will pass the Bhagsu Waterfall before reaching the centre of Bhagsu.

Note that the Triund – Karthani Trail is not as straightforward as the trail to hike up, but it is not so hard to follow with a little help from Maps.me.

This trail was my favourite part of the hike. It is not much frequented, the landscapes are amazing and I encountered plenty of sheep and goats along the way, which gave me some nice photo opportunities.

Sheep and goats on the Karthani Trail

Difficulty of the trek to Triund

The Triund Trek is considered a moderate trek . It is not too difficult, but you will need an average fitness level to complete it.

The elevation at Triund is 2,875 m (9,432 ft), while McLeodGanj is at 2,082 m (6,831 ft), so you will ascend about 800 m (2,600 ft) during the hike. This takes a total of 4 to 6 hours and the trek covers about 10 km (6.2 mi) one way.

Although you can do this trek in one day (which is what I did and it is very doable), it will be easier if you camp at Triund and split the hike into 2 days.

If you decide to hike further to the Laka Glacier, you will have to hike up an additional 325 m (1,066 ft).

Best time to do the Triund Trek

The best time to trek to Triund is in the Summer, between the months of March and June . This is when the weather will be at its best and the views will be most clear. You can expect temperatures between 15°C and 30°C (59°F and 86°F) at this time of the year.

July to September is the monsoon season. So this is not a good time to trek to Triund unless you don’t mind the rain and slipperiness.

The Winter lasts from October to February and it is possible to do the trek to Triund during this season too. Do note that there will be snow if you’re going in January or February.

Tips for hiking to Triund

  • Make a loop rather than going down the same way as you came up (this is what most people do).
  • Use Maps.me to navigate easily.
  • Bring water , snacks and sunscreen , and wear comfortable shoes . I wore hiking boots, but this trek can also be done with sneakers.
  • Consider camping for a night to see the sunset/sunrise.

Where to stay in McLeodGanj

There are plenty of places to stay in and around McLeodganj. You can opt for McLeodGanj itself, Bhagsu or Dharamkot.

While McLeodGanj is the place where the Dalai Lama lives, Bhagsu is a 20-minute walk from here and it is quieter. Dharamkot is a 30-minute walk from Bhagsu and it is also quieter than McLeodGanj.

Although McLeodGanj is often referred to as Dharamshala , I would not stay in this city, as it is located 5 km (3.1 mi) downhill of McLeodGanj and it is far from the main tourist attractions.

I stayed in Bhagsu as well as in McLeodGanj while I was there, you will find my top recommendations below:

  • Shree Guest House ( ⭐ 8.3) : Shree Guest House was my favourite place to stay in the area. This guesthouse is located in a quiet area in McLeodGanj, just a 5 to 10-minute walk from the main street. The rooms are nice and clean, there’s a shared balcony, the wifi is good and Nadish, the owner, is amazing!
  • Hotel Norbu House (⭐ 9.3): If you’re looking for a more luxurious place to stay with a beautiful view, Hotel Norbu House is the place for you. This hotel is located in a quiet street, near the centre of McLeodGanj and it has all the amenities you might need.
  • Eevolve Dharamkot (⭐ 8.3): Located in Dharamkot, this eco hostel offers beautiful rooms and a garden. This is a great place to stay if you’re planning on staying in the area for a little longer and would like to enrol in yoga classes, for example.

Triund Trek in McLeodGanj: Final thoughts

The trek to Triund is one of the most popular hikes in Dharamshala and it is easy to understand why. Not only are the landscapes beautiful, but this is also a trek that can easily be done independently.

All in all, this was a trek I really enjoyed, even though the sky wasn’t clear anymore by the time I reached Triund. If I would do it again, I would camp at Triund as this increases the chance of having a clear view.

I hope that this guide was clear and that you have found exactly what you were looking for. Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions. I’m updating this post frequently.

Triund Trek: A Face-Off With The Dhauladhar Range

' src=

The trek up to Triund hill was the tail end event of the entire Himachal backpacking trip. An Unknown path, steep and rocky trail, blind trust in google maps, with nothing but an intuitive sense of direction, an impending deadline, and unexplainable love for mountains. It was a perfect recipe for an adventure. And when it comes to adventures, I am game for it, come what may. Looking back at that trek, it reminds of these beautiful yet lasting words by James Baldwin.

And once you realize that you can do something, it would be difficult to live with yourself if you didn’t do it. James Baldwin, The Paris Review.

There is something with climbing mountains that I simply can’t give up on (read the description of the Instagram post below to know what). climbing mountains gave so much satisfaction that it’s very difficult to live with myself if I didn’t. Especially when you can see the peak challenging you from the window of your hostel, I simply can’t tuck myself under the blanket.

View this post on Instagram Why do you have to trek sir, That busy mind of mine keeps asking me. Why do you have to take the pain And climb huge mountains Why do you have to take the pain To cross slippery rocks Why do you have to take the pain To walk alongside dangerous ridges With a sigh, I reply!! Those huge mountains, Represent the huge challenges I have set for myself Those slippery rocks Represent the pitfalls in my plans The dangerous ridges represent The risks you gotta take to complete the challenges. But above all, Trekking teaches you one thing Really Really well. That is to always, always take One step at a time. No more no less. Just One Step. And soon you'll find yourself On top of the summit. P.S. Image for attention only 😂 #traveldiaries #travelblogger #instatravel #jannatehimachal #himachaldiaries #kheergangatrek #unciatrails #plantheunplanned #tripotocommunity #nationalgeographic #travelindia #guytravels #injutravels #colorsofindia #landscapesofindia #trekindia #treksofindia #feedyoursoull #blogger #himalayas #himachaltreks #lonelyplanetmags #travelwriting A post shared by Gowtham Injamuri (@trailsofinju) on Jun 27, 2019 at 8:10am PDT

So, it was the last circuit of the Himachal Backpacking trip with my friends. After a whirlwind trip from Delhi to Kasol and flying high in Bir Billing, we landed in Mcleodganj after what seemed like a grueling journey. The last few days have been intense, hectic and what not. But the moment I put my foot down at Mcleodganj the snow-capped mountains of Dhauladhar range allured me. My whole purpose of adding Mcleodganj to the itinerary was to get a little closer to those massifs. So, I asked my friends if they were up for the trek. All but Hithesh and Santhosh said no. Understandably so.

The choice for me, however, was obvious. I looked at the massifs and gave a thumbs up, “Challenge Accepted and you shall be scaled”. The others planned to explore the Dharamshala the following day. Read on to know all about my experience of the Triund Trek.

Table of Contents

We knew we were up for a challenge. The trek was 8 KM one way. We were planning to go via the Bhagsunag waterfall. This trail was the only option left other than the one from Gallu Devi which was 10 KM one way. The problem, however, was that the trail through Bhagsunag Waterfalls wasn’t very clear on maps or the ground. On top of that, we had a bus to catch in the evening, to reach Delhi. So, we had to start early, be alert mentally about where we were going and push ourselves to not give up until we boarded the bus 😉

So, we set the alarm, woke up, and started the hike at around 6 AM.

triund trek book

We reached the Mcleodganj taxi stand and took the street towards the Bhagsunag temple. After crossing the temple there was a concrete path made all the way to shiva cafe. You can see the Bhagsu Nag waterfall from here. A beautiful stream of water running down between the hills.

Bhagsunag Waterfalls Mcleodganj

The concrete path had too many stairs in between that slowed us down a little. But within no time we reached the famous Shiva Cafe. Because it was too early in the morning, Shiva cafe was closed but it had all the vibes of a peaceful place.

Shiva Cafe McleodGanj

We crossed over the Bhagsunag Waterfalls to reach the other mountain. The trail started to narrow down from here. It didn’t look difficult but had too many diversions and turns. Maps ceased to work and we were left with our own judgment on which trail to take.

Into The Unknown Trails To Triund

One of the thumb rule you can use is to see if the trail has any footmarks, indicating recent usage. And another is to look at the peak and see if you’re not deviating far from the peak. We crossed that trail and reached a point with some magnificent views of the sleeping Mcleodganj.

Sunrise Over McleodGanj

The sun just started uncovering the lush greenery from the low-lit early mornings. We continued walking and this particular stretch was a little steep but there was a hut at the end of it. So with pumped-up energy, we reached the hut.

Breakfast Time

We ordered some Maggi and chai to recoup some energy. There was an elderly man running the store. We also asked him if we were on the right path to reach the peak. He nodded with a smile. Such a lovely smile 😀 We paid for the meals and started the hike again.

Breakfast On Triund Trail

The trail just disappeared from here on. We knew we had to reach the ridge in front of us. All we could see were thorny and dense plants in front of us. A muddy path appeared on close inspection. We just assumed it would be the trail and started walking with the sight undeviated from the peak.

The Trail Of Thorns and Hops

Soon it leads to another trail and we hopped onto that and then another one appeared and just like that, we navigated past the thorny patch. It was indeed a real-life example of “Set your eyes on the destination and you’ll always figure a way to reach there.” Because sometimes that’s life.

You have a sense of where you wanna go and you reach there by trial and error.

Climb Or Walk?

We were now at the start of the ridge. On one side it was the grandiosity of Dharamshala and Mcleodganj. Look at those brick-sized brick walls in front of the mighty mountains. It felt as if, if not for their mercy, those brick walls would’ve crumbled a long time ago. And on the other side, we had a steep climb ahead of us.

Birds Eye View Of McleodGanj From Triund Trek

While the ridge was really steep, almost as if it touched the sky but there was another route available by the side. We started hiking on the other route. And boy we were so glad we took this route. Just after a 100m- 200m walk on this route, we found another cafe. It wasn’t open yet but there were a few granite slabs turned into Sofas for customers to sit. I sat on one of the granite sofas. This cafe was almost on the edge of the mountain. So my eyesight slowly went down the valley before taking a steep climb up to a towering snow-capped mountain. What a tiny speck of dust I was in front of the majestic mountain.

Cafe With The View On Triund Trail

As much as we wanted to stay, the thought of getting a better view from the top made us restart the hike again. The hiking route took us up the ridge again and this time we continued on the ridge without any deviations.

The sun was right on our backs. The sweater I got slowly turned from a shield to baggage. The ridge walk became rough after a while. With steep climbs on a rocky path, it just threw one blow after another.

The Magic Unfurls

By then the snow-capped mountains started wrapping clouds around them. As if they’re doing a magic show to entertain us and make us forget and endure the pain of the steep climb. The occasional sight of a Himalayan Griffon made it all worthwhile.

Meadows And Massifs Of Triund

The first steep climb was behind us and the mountain rewarded us with another. We conquered that as well thinking the peak or Triund campsite was just at the top. But I think the ridge fell in love with our determination, So it presented yet another steep climb, we trekked up that too and then another and another and another. And we yelled at the ridge, “Up Up here we go” .

Trails of Triund

We kept taking small breaks and continued the climb. Occasionally looking back at the downward slope all the way to Mcleodganj. From that point, Mcleodganj was as tiny as an ant. The climb didn’t end there and the steep slopes kept challenging us. Added to that, the sun was merciless too. So we took the meadows to ease the stress on the legs for a while.

Meadows Of Triund Trek

After a brief walk on the meadows, the trail flattened out. The meadows were dotted with huge rocks.

Rocky Trails Of Triund

Face-Off With Dhauladhar Range

To our utter surprise, We reached the Triund Campsite at around 10:15 AM. And there it was, the magnificent Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. With nothing but courage and a paraglide away from where we stood. I just stood there, taking in everything I can.

Reaching Triund Hilltop

The slippery glacial slopes, the towering sharpness of the peak, the clouds caressing its crown. I sometimes wonder, how on earth do such meadows even exist. I mean, look around, all you see are nothing but towering and unreachable peaks. Yet, almost magically, you have this Triund hill. A hill with all its meadows makes the perfect ground for you to witness the mighty mountains. I sometimes feel its all part of a clever architect’s design.

The Magnificent Dhauladhar Range

I was in love with that place. Just resting there, looking at those mountains made me unreasonably happy. With enough time at hand, we decided to take it slow.

Tranquility Of Triund

Looking at the cloud patterns it appeared to rain, so at around 12 PM we started the climb down the same way. Considering the trail was completely downhill, it was quick and not as tiring as it was. One last click before the rain kicked in xD

Posers Of Triund

On the way back we saw a few people. They may have climbed up via the trail starting at Gallu Devi Temple, stayed at the Triund campsite overnight (which I believe is now banned), and were climbing down. We climbed down the hill, hiked through the thorny trail, and after the last stretch of those winding narrow trails which were now familiar, we saw the Shiva Cafe. I was proved wrong when I said it had the vibes of a peaceful place. Against all my thoughts, it was surprisingly crowded. So crowded that we had to wait for a while to get a seat to sit and eat.

Shiva Cafe On the Way Back

We reached the La Vaca Hostel at around 3:30 PM. Met the other guys, packed our bags, and left to Dharamshala for the bus back to Delhi. For the first time during that trip, I stood there in silence witnessing the myriad shades of sunset sky. And just like that, we bid goodbye to the sun, Dharamshala and the Dhauladhar range of Himalayas.

The Goodbye Sunset At Dharamshala

As part of my effort to help more and more travelers witness the beauty of this world, I’m adding few FAQs to help you plan a hike up to the Triund Peak.

Why Should You Choose Triund Trek?

How long is the triund trek.

There are two routes you can choose for the trek. The trek to Triund via Bhagsu nag waterfalls is the shortest but also the toughest. The trail via Bhagsu nag waterfalls is 8KM one way . The other route to Triund via Gallu Devi temple is 10 KM one way but it’s not as tough as the first one.

How to do Triund trek?

If it was earlier, I would’ve advised you to set aside 2 days for the Triund Trek. The sunset and sunrise are supposedly breathtaking. But camping is now banned. So you can plan to do this in one day. I would suggest you start very early

How To Reach Triund Trek?

The basecamp for the Triund Trek is Mcleodganj. McLedoganj is 8 KM from Dharamshala and is frequented by local buses every 20 Mins. Dharamshala, in turn, is connected with all major cities in India via road. There are overnight Volvo buses running to and from Dharamshala to all major cities like Shimla, Manali, Chandigarh, and Delhi. So you can reach Dharamshala by bus from cities like Delhi, Chandigarh, etc.

You can even choose to fly down to Dharamshala. Book a ticket to Kangra Airport from wherever you’re in the world.

While at Mcleodganj, ask for Dharamkot which is another small area near McLeodganj. After reaching Dharamkot, ask for Bhagunaag Temple or look it up on maps. Once at the Bhagsunaag temple, take the concrete path towards Bhagsunag Waterfall. The waterfall is visible clearly once you cross the temple. Follow the trail to reach the Triund Peak via Bhagsunaag waterfalls. If you want to take the less intense Gallu Devi trail, then the Gallu Devi temple is about 1.6 KM from Bhagsunag Temple.

How difficult is Triund Trek?

Although the difficulty is subjective, I can assure you that if you have basic fitness, (If you can clock 5KM sprint in 40-45 Mins) then you will be able to comfortably finish the trek in one day. Even if you take the trial via Bhagsu Nag waterfalls. So, I would classify it as an easy to moderate trek. Triund trek is regarded as one of the best treks for beginners.

How To Plan For Triund Trek?

If you are coming from Delhi or nearby cities, take an overnight bus on one of your leisure weekends. Reach Dharamkot and start the trek using the directions mentioned above. Complete the trek. Stay in one of the hostels (I stayed in La Vaca Hostel , inexpensive for students too and very cozy). Explore Dharamshala the next day and head back to your city via another overnight bus.

In Case you’re planning for Triund Trek from Hyderabad or Bengaluru or Mumbai, then I recommend you to club a few other places in Himachal Pradesh. I personally took a week off and explored Kasol(Check out my blog post here ), hiked up the meadows of Kheerganga(Check out the DIY guide here ), Manali, did Paragliding Bir Billing, and landed at Mcleodganj for the trek. It was very hectic for me so you may delete or swap a few places. My strong recommendation is don’t come all the way just for Triund Trek.

Essentials For Triund Trek?

If you’re doing a one-day trek to Triund, then below are few items I definitely recommend:

  • Sweatshirt (If you’re starting very early)
  • Good Hiking Shoes
  • Comfortable pair of clothes.
  • Another pair if you wish to get into Bhagsunaag waterfalls on your way back.
  • 2-3 Liters of Water. It gets really hot at the top during the summer months.
  • Shades/sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun.
  • Protein bars or Nutri Bikies to energize yourself. Don’t pack the entire supermarket citing the hiking reason. And PLEASE DON’T LITTER.

P.S: For Ladies, please pack essentials as deemed necessary by you beyond the above-mentioned items. Safe trekking.

P.P.S: I’ve mentioned the above essentials keeping summer months in mind. Please plan according the season in which you’re planning to go.

Is Triund Trek Safe?

Whenever you are in the mountains, you are always at the mercy of nature. Please respect the nature and conditions and you will be good. The trail from Bhagsunag waterfalls to Triund is a continuous climb. I am sure of its slippery nature in monsoons. The trail from the Gallu Devi temple is a ridge walk. So, it is quite dangerous in the event of a landslide. Otherwise, the trail is very good for hiking. Just respect the nature and overcast conditions and you will be safe in the lap of nature.

Can Triund trek be done alone?

It is given that Triund Trek is very ideal for beginners and also the trail is clear from the Gallu Devi temple. So, even solo trekkers and travelers can hike up to the Triund campsite without any doubts in mind. Take sufficient snacks and water and precautions about your personal safety while you’re on and off the trail. It’s highly likely that you will find enough people to befriend if you take the Gallu Devi temple. So rest assured and you can do this trek completely on your own without a guide.

Where To Stay In Your Trip To Triund Trek?

Dharamkot is the basecamp for a lot of treks in the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. By the virtue of that, there are a number of backpackers hostels in McleodGanj and Dharamkot. You can find branded backpacker hostels like Hosteller, La Vaca Hostel, etc. We stayed in La Vaca hostel and it was really comfortable and affordable. You can check for bookings on booking.com or Airbnb.

Other Treks Near Triund!

So, if you have more time at hand you can go for other trekking destinations around Triund. Treks like Indrahar Pass Trek, Laka Glacier Trekking are all one day trek away from Triund hill. Refer to this article for more details.

Cost of Triund Trek!

Barring the personal expenses, the cost for Triund Trek is INR 0 rupees. You read that right, unsure why, but there is no entry fee for Triund trek. So if you’re doing it on your own it’s completely free of cost.

What’s The Height Of Triund Hill?

The Triund Hill is at a height aka Altitude of 2850m above sea level. It is situated at the foot of the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas.

Triund Trek Map/Route

Refer to the below-handmarked trek route for reaching Triund Hill from Mcleodganj. I’ve marked the trails for both the trails of Bhagusnag Waterfalls as well as the Gallu Devi Temple trail.

Triund Route Map From McleodGanj

Should You Choose Kheerganga Trek or Triund Trek?

Honestly, there is no right answer. For me, Kheerganga was more exciting simply because it had much more variety. Kheerganga has meadows, forests, steep climbs, waterfalls, and above all hot water springs. You can read about my experience here . But on the other hand, Triund Trek brought me much closer to the snow-capped mountains which were just distant backgrounds in pictures during Kheerganga Trek. However, Kheerganga is a moderate difficulty trek and you need two days to complete the trek. So if you have two days to spare, give Kheerganga a shot. If you’re looking for a quick weekend trek, then go for Triund.

Hope the FAQs help you plan your trip better. Have a good time in the Himalayas and while you’re there, take care of the mountains.
