One of the most popular and easiest treks in the country, Triund hill is set at a height of 2,843 metres above sea level. It’s about 7 km from the main city center in McLeodganj, and takes approximately 4 hours to reach the top. If you’re on a 3 to 4 day trip in Dharamshala or McLeodganj, a Triund trek in July shouldn’t be missed. Though monsoon brings its hassles, it also makes the entire Kangra valley lush green, and gives clear views of the magnificent Dhauladhar range. Here are some important things you should know.
Triund Trek in July
In the month of July, the monsoon is in full flow, and road conditions on the trail may seem challenging. Most trekkers avoid staying overnight in the tent. However, you can always book a basic room in the Forest Guest House. Bookings have to be made from the Forest Office in Dharamshala. Since roads can be slippery and muddy, it’s better to carry a light backpack on the trek. You should also carry first aid kit and a stick to help you stay firm on the ground.
Though the trek is pretty easy, you need to be careful in the last stretch. It’s quite steep and tests your stamina. On reaching the top, and even on your way, you will be able to see mesmerizing views of the snow-capped Dhauladhar range and lush valleys. The aerial view of Dharamshala Cricket Ground is also pretty fascinating.
During the monsoon season, it becomes even more important to plan your visit with experienced trekkers. This allows you to fully enjoy the trek, while ensuring your safety. If you’re planning a Triund trek in July, get in touch with someone from our team. Just click here.
