Triund Trek is one of Delhi and Chandigarh’s most popular weekend treks. It’s the easiest trek on your own in the Himalayas.
It is also very picturesque, with stunning views of the Kangra valley and the snow-capped range of Dhauladhar.
Triund is the perfect place to hike in the Himalayas for those who seek a hassle-free savor. The walk can be done easily over a weekend.
It’s a short but steep path to Triund. The steep climb is well offset by cool walks through the oak and rhododendron trees. In the forests along the trail, there are also several songbirds which make it a delight for birdwatchers.
With the easy accessibility from Dharamshala or Mcleodganj, many hikers go on this hike, making it difficult to enjoy the peace of the place and get crowded up during weekends or the holiday season. The beauty of this trek during the weekdays is better experienced.
Little Lhasa, a vibrant Tibetan culture, is the perfect place for the town of McLeodganj, too.
the view of the powerful range of Dhauladhar and other peaks
With the very little climb, the trek provides some of the best views. You don’t have to go deep into a valley such as the Manali region or climb several days for wonderful views.
When you start the tour, you will see the top of Moon, the Horn rifle, the Seat of Arthur and a powerful Dhauladhar range that is clearly visible.
Walking in the lovely Himachal Pradesh pine forests
While it is small to trek through the forest, it takes you through a lovely section of forest, for which you will remember the trek.
You will pass by rhododendrons, pines, and coniferous trees. Trekking in the forest and the great opening of the ridge is a sight to experience at the end of the tree lines.
Triund Trek’s Superb Sunset
Sunset may be the main highlight of the Triund Trek, which makes all trekking lovers stay on the ridge overnight. Look behind you and the sunset on those mountains with some golden lights.

In fact, unlike other summit excursions, Triund Trek is not the last place on the trek. If you want to explore more and have a trekking experience in the Himalayas, Triund acts as a gateway to many more adventures.
There are many places to explore, such as the Lakha Hills and, over several days, the Indrahar Pass for more experienced walkers.
