Is Triund Himachal Still a Good Choice?
Triund is located only 9 km from the quaint and spiritual town of McLeodganj in Himachal Pradesh. In recent times, Triund trek has become even more popular among first-time and amateur trekking enthusiasts. While trekking to the top of the hill, you walk across lush rhododendron trees with the Dhauladhar range in the backdrop. The breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains are worth the 4-hour walk that’s required to reach the top.
Since it’s an easy to moderate trek, you don’t have to worry about Triund trek difficulty level. Even first-timers find it pretty easy to finish the ascent within 4 hours. If you plan to stay overnight, it’s better to take some breaks during the ascent to catch views of Kareri Lake, Dharamshala Cricket Stadium and the lush Kangra Valley. You can start the trek from McLeodganj’s Main Square (9 km) or take a taxi to reach Gallu Devi Temple (6.5 km).
Though Triund is an amazing trek in itself, you can even choose to take the same trail to reach Kareri Lake. Here, you can explore numerous rock-cut caves. On the way back, it’s recommended to take a halt at Bhagsu Waterfall/Shiva Cafe to relax and have a delicious meal. All this points to one simple fact. Triund Himachal will be a preferred trekking destination for a long time to come.
