About Triund trek

Located about ten kilometres from the bustling city centre of McLeodganj, this trek in Kangra Valley is an easy but gorgeous adventure and is one of the most sought after treks in this region.

McLeodganj, also known as ‘Little Lhasa’ the basecamp from where the trek starts, is unlike any other place in India. This small town is home to a local population as well as Tibetan refugees, which lends it a unique charm of its own and provides a great opportunity to experience the vibrant Tibetan culture as well as some great food options! And of course, with McLeodganj being the home of the Dalai Lama, the monasteries here are also worth exploring.

The Triund trek is an easy a one-day trek and is perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. You can trek 10 kms from Mcleod Ganj or drive to Galu Temple near Dharamkot and do a shorter trek of less than 6 kms. The trail is rocky and cut in steps at some places. From Galu devi temple, there is a little path which goes through dense rhododendron and oak and deodar forest to end at the Triund summit, rewarding you with absolutely breath-taking, 180-degree views of the mountains and the gorgeous Kangra valley. During your trek, if lucky enough, you can see the birds like Alpine Ancestors and wild animals like musk deer and black bear.

The Triund trek will take about four hours to complete and the view of the evening sky from Triund is a good enough reason to pitch a tent here for the night. There are some great camping sites with beautiful views of the snow-capped Dhauladhar mountain range. This is a great trek for beginners as well as experienced trekkers who love the snow. Trekkers visit sacred mountains, ancient temples and quaint 'pahadi' villages hidden in valleys, waiting to be explored. There are rocks to scramble over, peaks swathed in mist, snow crunching under your feet, and cold air all around. Today, Triund hill has become a popular trail and local and international tourists utilize the height of Triund Hill for adventure activities like paragliding.
