A popular hill station in the Dharamkot area of McLeodganj, Triund is the starting point for various trails that go up the Triund Hill. Some of these trails lead to the Inderahara point on the great Mt Dhauladhar. Throughout the trek, views of the entire Dhauladhar range and the vast, lush green meadows offer a surreal experience that attracts several trekkers looking for a moderate-to-easy trek for the weekend. The trek, which begins from Dharamkot is 18 km long and is marked with a well defined trail. It is advisable to hire a guide/ trek operator if this is your first experience of trekking as the trails run through thick forests of rhododendron and deodar, which despite their beauty can be a little disorienting. The entire journey takes a maximum of six hours depending on your pace and there is a vast flat area that can be used to pitch a tent and acclimatise if you intend to head further up.

From the top of Triund Hill, one can witness the spectacular Dhauladhar range rising over the area. The best months to visit are January, if you're looking for snowfall, and March-May for spectacular and clear views of the vast forest and the mountain ranges. It lies about half an hour away from Dharamsala.
