Triund, the name probably all Himalayan trekkers would have heard of and place many might have visited already. Triund is one of the most popular treks in the country and with good reason. The trek experience and the trail, the magnificent views of the valley to the south and the bewitching Dhauladhars standing right next to the ridge, the serenity of the place is something to be experienced once in a lifetime, at the least.
This short trail does exactly the unimaginable and takes you right from the city centre to a remote, placid place in the mountains. The trek offers you a chance to hike through Oak, Deodar and Rhododendron forest to reach the green meadow grassland top of Triund.
Barring the final stretch of a kilometre or so, which is steep and winding, the trail is fairly easy to moderate.
It’s a trek for all ages and seasons. If you haven’t already been here, today is the right to book your place for this short and splendid Himalayan getaway!
