Triund hill lies about 10 kilometres from McLeodganj in Himachal Pradesh, and is about 9278 feet high. 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, and in winter, snow crunching under your feet.

The Triund trek can be done in one day, so is perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. There are two routes for this trek: a longer one of 10 kms starting from Mcleodganj, or a shorter one of 6 kms starting from Galu Devi temple. It will take you 4-6 hours to get to Triund top, just in time for a spectacular sunset. You’ll be able to see absolutely breath-taking, 180-degree views of the mountains and the gorgeous Kangra valley.

Camping at Triund

There are some great campsites in Triund, with beautiful views of the snow-capped Dhauladhar mountain range. There are also some lodges at the top, which are great options in winter when it can get very cold at Triund top.

Triund trek packages

Triund trek packages range from INR 1,800 to 6,900, depending on the number of days and the amenities and facilities requested.

Best time for Triund trek

The trek to Triund hill is open all year around, except in heavy snow or rain. The best time to visit is during the months of September and October, when temperatures are only moderately cold at dawn and dusk. If you wish to do a snow trek in Triund or even if you just love snowfall, then visit between November and March. The temperatures are sub-zero at night but the views are spectacular. The mighty Dhauladhar ranges and the Kangra valley are covered in a blanket of white snow during this time, and you’ll feel all the magic of a Himalayan winter.

FAQs about the Triund trek

I’ve never trekked before. Can I do the Triund trek?

The Triund trek is suitable for beginners who exercise regularly or are relatively fit. It has some steep stretches that will prove challenging, so you shouldn’t have any knee or spine injuries. If you’re a first-time trekker, you might want to choose the shorter, 6 kms route that starts from Galu Devi temple.

What is the best time to go for the Triund trek?

The Triund trek is open almost all year round, except for the rainy season and on heavy snow days. From September onwards, just after the monsoon, the weather is pleasant during the day, and gets chilly during the night. The forests are green and lush during these months. As winter approaches, the temperature drops, and the snow treks begin. Triund sees a lot of trekkers in early winter, from early November to late December. It’s gorgeous at this time, with a white blanket covering the views all around. The trek will be shut when snowfall is heavy. Summer is a good time to go too, especially for those who want to avoid the heat.

What should I carry for the Triund trek?

Your operator will provide you with a full packing list for your trek to Triund. However, do make sure you carry enough clothing for the lowest temperatures, especially if you’re camping. You will also need to have a scarf, hat, and gloves to keep your extremities warm.
