Triund Trek from Mcleodganj and Beyond

Triund Trek from Mcleodganj and Beyond

Triund trek is a perfect getaway from Delhi /Chandigarh to the heights in McLeodganj in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh. Situated between the Dhauladhar mountains and Kangra valley, the Triund Trek from Mcleodganj is considered to be a good initiation trek for the beginners. Triund trekking and camping is not a tough nut to crack but it nevertheless gifts you the stunning views and thrills any other high altitude treks can give. The trail goes through the dense forest of deodar, rhododendron and oak trees curving around some great views of the valley.

Well now that you know enough about the Triund trek, let’s talk about what lies ahead if you continue on the same trail after the Triund top.

Hint: there is a glacier, a cave and a high altitude pass involved.

 

#1. Triund and Laka Glacier Trek

If you find Triund Trek from Mcleodganj to be too easy for you or you want an extra mile for more adventure then you should opt for Laka Glacier Trek. It is a further day hike from Triund and takes you to Laka Got next to the glacier. The snow at Laka glacier will melt away before August so if you want to get chilled in the white snow then visit Laka glacier during the month of April and May. Right before reaching the glacier you will go through the shepherds’ meadow, a place where the local shepherds gather with their sheep, surrounded by snow clad mountains and misty valleys.

Indrahar pass is located at an altitude of 4300+ metre. The Kangra and Chamba valley in the Dhauladhar range of Himalayas are connected by the Indrahar pass. The view this place offers is pure ecstasy. The mysterious valleys hiding under thick mountain mists will give you chills.

During the Indrahar Pass Trek, you will come across the famous Lahesh caves. It’s a place where you can stay for a night or a halt during your trek. However, this trek is a perfect opportunity for trekkers with some previous experience. The rigorous climb to Dhauladhar mountains will test the better of trekkers. It’s a good trek to be your 2nd or 3rd Himalayan trek.
