McLeodgunj - Triund Trek
Distance: approx. 16 km (return)
Duration: 1 -2 days
This trek starts at 6AM. We will start from McLeodgunj, start walking up the trail leading out of McLeodgunj, and walk up to the glacier. It will take about 3 hours to the glacier, then from there, it is a steep climb of about one hour up to Triund, a tourist spot located at a height of 10,000 feet above sea level.
The view is superb from the top. You can see all the way upto River Beas, which is about 54 kms from McLeodgunj. The valley below is an excellent view for the tourist. There is also a guest house in Triund, owned and run by the Forest Department. You can book rooms in Triund if you plan to stay there for a day or more. Bookings must be made in advance in Dharamsala, so pre-planning your stay is important.
The trek back to McLeodgunj takes about 3 hours, and is all downhill.
