Triund is situated in the laps Dhauladhar mountains and is one of the most popular treks in Dharamshala at an altitude of 2826 meters. The weather remains cool and pleasant throughout the year but the best time for the trek is in summer and spring season.
The trek starts from Gallu Village of Dharamkot and trails through the mixed forest of oak, deodar and rhododendron trees. The Trail is rocky and cuts into steps. On the way, you will find the “magic view” cafe. It is situated at a vantage point when Triund is almost 2 km away. You can relax there and enjoy snacks or tea along with a breathtaking view of Kangra Valley.
When you reach Triund, you are welcomed by the large expanse of green pastures and Mighty Dhauladhar ranges just above the eyes. If you are fond of nature it will give you a different fragrance which will hold your eyes wide open and fill your heart full of joy. Triund offers panoramic views of Bhagsu, Mcleodganj and Dharamshala Valley along with distant views of Shivaik hills and plains of Kangra Valley.
