Triund trekking with my two best friendsBefore starting, just know a little about the place. Triund Trek is a perfect getaway to the heights in McLeodganj. Situated between the Dhauladhar Mountains and Kangra valley. Triund Trek is one of the most sought-after treks in Himachal Pradesh. Trekking in Triund if you ask me was not difficult at all, a young person could easily do it but it nevertheless gifts you the stunning views and thrills any other high-altitude treks can give. Triund trek is for all and most popular activity in Mcleodganj and you will definitely not regret it. I mean just have a look at the top of Triund! Doesn’t it looks like the top of the world and you feel accomplished?
–Night 1So, the day was Saturday we had two mid-terms paper on the same day on which we had to leave for McLeodGanj. But do you think this was difficult part? Lol no, a day before we didn’t even know we are going or not, thanks to my friends :P. It’s crazy how we have been planning this from last 2 months and still couldn’t confirm it till the last night, by booking the bus tickets only and not a place to stay. We just casually choose hotel when we reach the place. So, 9:20 pm bus departure from Delhi to Mcleodganj. We, were Hella excited for this trip. It was just 3 of us and we could sing “We’re the 3 best friends that anyone could have”, yes, I stole it from Hangover! We were more excited when a cute girl sat next to us. But here’s when life becoming tough again, she changed the seat. Lol, never mind. We chatted all night, slept for good amount of time. Our bus took 1 stop in some place we didn’t even know. Usually people eat a lot in between pit stop. And I just prefer Tea every-time, no wonder I belong to Uttarakhand. Just took the sip of the tea and had all the excitement back. So, anyhow we passed the night, watch the sunrise from the bus, the view was impeccable, from plain night to see a beautiful mountain sunrise is blissful. I think it’s time to switch it to Day 1.
Dalai Lama TempleIt is a really interesting place by seeing how Buddhist monastery are. It was such a holy place. No noise, dead silence and prayers were going on! If you go to a place to visit and doesn’t involve in the culture of that place then whats the point on going?
Mcleodganj MarketAfter the temple we roam around the Mcleodganj market which is full of local artefacts, jewellery just like a flea market. But I would say this all the mall roads looks the same, be it Mussoorie, Nainital or Shimla.
Bhagsu WaterfallThen we decided to go Bhagsu Waterfall which was around 3.2kms from our hotel, it took use almost an hour to reach the waterfall by walking. The way up was so mesmerizing. You don’t get to see it every day. The water was cold, sun was at the peak, just the perfect balance of mother nature. We three just sat at the top for some time, chatted and return back walking to the market.
—Day 2The next morning, the morning we had been waiting for 2 months. The day of trekking hell yeah! Let’s go. So, we went to the person who will get us through to the start of trekk. So, we took taxi from Mcloedganj market to Gallu Temple and the road was damn, you can’t even say uneven. So, we reached Gallu temple, filled the register of the Check post at the start, just a place which they last saw you for safety reasons. So, we started the trek at last!! It was not that difficult for me at all, I don’t know for others :P. We were trekking with some music on the way but mind you, playing music is not allowed while trekking, so beware. Mid way a small shop comes which ofcourse over charge you for “difficult to bring at the top”, but whatever, just bring water with yourself for the top. Don’t use plastic there and don’t litter the place 😀 . The shop is exactly the middle of the trekking almost 3.5kms. Still 3.5 kms to go and now we started to feel the burn a little bit, because ofcourse we had all our clothes with us. We found our guide, who will get us to the camping place.
