As Triund trail is little rocky, hiking shoes are recommended, have at least shoes with a good grip and extra pair of socks. A warm jacket according to the season and must carry a raincoat or poncho in rainy season. There is no need to carry food/snacks as there are shops & cafes along the trail and also on top.

Although Triund is an easy trek, conditions at Triund Top can be unpredictable sometimes. Bad weather if encountered may not be best for small child. Camping at night with 5 year old or younger child on Triund Top is not advisable. Day hike can be done.

The trekking experience was amazing! Our guide, Mr. Dhiraj was very supportive and his enthusiasm at taking us to various locations of the trek was unending. The food and accommodation was simple and nice! The trek route till Triund is fairly easy, and slightly challenging at some stretched towards Laka glacier but picturesque throughout! Just one suggestion, it would be nicer to have snow tents rather than having the regular tents. No amounts of sleeping bags are enough to keep out the cold.
