Triund is one of the most popular and scenic trekking destinations in the country. Every year, hundreds of trekking enthusiasts visit this hill, which sits in the lap of the majestic Dhauladhar range. The proximity to McLeodganj makes it even more popular. As per your convenience and preferences, you can choose a suitable Triund trek starting point.
Dharamshala, Mcleodganj or Dharamkot
Most trekkers prefer to make McLeodganj the basecamp for a trek to Triund. However, the trek can also be started from Dharamshala, which is about 17 km from the top of the hill. It takes about 7-8 hours to cover this distance. Needless to say, the Triund trek difficulty level is much higher at this distance. The most popular starting point for a Triund trek is the Main Square in McLeodganj. From here, you need to walk for about 9 km, which takes approximately 4 hours to reach the top.
Two other good choices to start a Triund trek are Dharamkot Village and Gallu Devi Temple. Taxis are easily available to both these points, and it takes a 6.5 km walk from here to reach the top of Triund hill. A lot of trekkers who want to come back from the trek on the same day choose these as the starting points.
