Trek to Triund

The Triund trek is a popular adventure trail for travellers stopping at Dharamshala or McLeodganj. It gives you a chance to escape into the mountains, walk through the most beautiful scenery, climb to 6831 feet, and camp at the top, with breathtaking views of the Dhauladhar range all around. The Triund trek is great for beginners who are looking for an easy trek, or if you want to try camping in the Himalayas without the commitment of a longer trek.

IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trek, so you will need a minimum of 2 travellers to book this Triund trek.

Destination

Located at the foot of the Dhauladhar range, Triund is a small hill in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. Although Triund is widely known as the base camp for trekkers climbing to Indrahara Pass, the trek to Triund is also a popular short trek.

This two-day Triund trek will begin at McLeodganj, giving you a chance to explore Tibetan culture, and then passing through Dharamkot, where you can visit the famous Galu Devi Temple, which is 3 hours away from Triund. Upon reaching Triund, you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the Dhauladhar mountain ranges. After spending a restful night in tents and eating a fulfilling breakfast, you will begin your journey back to McLeodganj.
