The trek can be started from Mcleodganj or by taking a cab or auto to the Galu temple. This hike can also be begun at the Bhagsunag waterfall.
Triund’s hike, trek, or trail is mostly easy-moderate and well marked. The path winds through a beautiful forest. With the exception of a few patches here and there, the trek is fine. There are several small shops and tea shacks on the way to the Triund where you can get Maggi and tea.
There is a magical viewpoint halfway through the trek from which to see some beautiful aerial views of the Dhauladhars. Sunset and sunrise are spectacular at Triund, and if you enjoy photography, you will appreciate them even more.

Are you planning to visit Triund this weekend?
Dharamshala and McleodGanj regard Triund as their “heart” or “crown.” The trek to Triund from McleodGanj in Himachal Pradesh is approximately 9-10 kilometres long. The views from Triund are breathtaking, with the Dhauladhar ranges to one side and the Kangra Valley to the other.
It’s a lovely woods walk that people of all ages can enjoy. This could explain why it is so popular among beginners in Himachal Pradesh.
Triund is located at an elevation of around 2828 metres (9350 feet) at the foot of the Himalayan Dhauladhar ranges.
ATM accessibility and mobile signal strength in triund
The final location where ATMs can be found is Mcleodganj. As a result, make sure you have enough money on hand.
Mcleodganj has access to all cellular networks. Triund is missing a strong link. The network typically comes and goes. It’s better to disconnect for a short period of time, give it a shot, and be sure that you will enjoy it. In any case, BSNL works best in the Himalayas.
Triund offers lodging
Tents are available for Rs 300-500 per person at Triund; however, availability on-site may be limited at times. At Triund, you can also transport and set up a tent. You can also stay at the Forest Rest House at the top, but reservations are difficult to come by.
Because there are only a few rooms available, you must book the Forest Rest House from Dharamshala in advance. You can also pre-arrange your stay with some local travel agents in McleodGanj, who will help you transport your camping gear and food up there.
Some shops in McleodGanj also rent out camping and trekking equipment. When hiking, trekking, or travelling in the Himalayas, it is best to buy your tent or camp, and Quechua tents are usually good and can be easily purchased on Amazon India.
Day 1: Volvo Bus from Delhi to Mcleodganj Overnight
Take the evening luxury bus from Delhi to the hills and unwind before embarking on one of the best adventures of your life!
Day 2: Hike to Triund Top (9 km)
After arriving in McLeod Ganj early in the morning, we began our journey from our office. The journey starts in McLeodGanj, the DalaiLama’s hometown, and climbs from there (9 km). The entire ascent will take approximately 4-5 hours (lunch en-route). The climb is relatively easy, with a few steep ascents thrown in for good measure, and breathtaking views to keep you company! We explored the ridge before returning to our campsite (1 km below the ridge) to prepare for a hot dinner to keep us warm against the ridge’s strong evening winds. With a full stomach, retire to your camp bed.
Day 3: Trek from Triund to Mcleodganj; Mcleodganj return to Delhi after sightseeing.
We wake up early to see one of the most beautiful sunrises you’ll ever see, with the sun rays spilling over the snow-capped Dhauladhar Mountains. After breakfast, we will begin our descent, which will be much easier and faster than the ascent. You are free to explore McLeodGanj and its bustling markets, which sell lovely trinkets such as healing crystal jewellery and colourful yak wool clothing, among other things! Board the evening Volvo bus back to Delhi, full of warm memories from your short but eventful vacation!
Other suggestions or hints for the Triund Trek
This trek can be completed without the assistance of a guide or porter. The trail is well-marked and well-travelled for the most part. However, do not deviate from it. However, while trekking in the snow, some difficulties may arise.
Please return all of your waste to Mcleodganj or Dharamkot, where it can be easily disposed of in garbage bins, and hope that it is disposed of properly after that. Travel responsibly, and I hope you read DoW’s Himalayan travel tips.
While regular athletic shoes will suffice for this trek, ankle-high hiking or trekking shoes will always protect your ankles from twists and injuries.
