My Experience of Triund Trek-
Its a cloudy day in Delhi, I started my trip to Mcleodganj, Dharamsala, Triund, Snowline, Kangra, Bagsu Nag, Naddi etc. There are lots of places and I have only 3 days to explore all. I started my journey from Kashmere Gate ISBT (Inter State Bus Terminal). This is the time of new year and all tickets for HRTC (Himachal Pradesh Roadways Transport Corporation) are already booked. All private Volvo bus also booked advance. Firstly I got sad because there is no other option to go there. But after so many tries, I find a way to go there. I book a ticket to Kangra(Himachal Pradesh) in the bus of Haryana Roadways going to Baijnath from Faridabad. It’s approx. 12 hours journey from Delhi to Kangra including 1-hour dinner break. In the morning I reached Kangra and changed the bus to Mcleodganj via Dharamsala.
After reaching the Mcleodganj, I went to Galu Temple by cab from the bus stand. I didn’t explore Mcleodganj because I was getting late for my trek. But I explore Mcleodganj and Bagsu Nag Waterfall after two days of my trekking. I started my trek from Galu Temple. I ate breakfast there before starting my trek. The food and water are much expensive in Triund Trek (Double or Triple from MRP). So I purchase some food from Galu Temple. I bought a can of red bull(Energy Drink), A snicker(Energy Chocolate), Some cookies and snacks etc.
I started my trekking. You have to do a verification in Galu Temple before starting your trek. Always carry a valid identity card before going there. Pan Card is not allowed as you identity card in any travel places. I find lots of trekker on the way. I also join a group for trek together.
This is not so difficult trek but not so easy also. The starting way is easy but at last, the way of the trek is too difficult. I take many breaks on the way between Triund from Galu Temple. After the trekking of 3 hours, I reached triund. There are lots of trekkers I found on my way. Its new year time so I wished Happy New Year to all trekkers by shaking hand. When I was there I found really a new world with new people. Its a trekker world, where humanity is still alive, where all trekkers are brothers and sisters, where all are comes when you need any help, really I love this place so much and I didn’t want to come back.
After reaching the Triund, I jumped and say – Hurray!! I did it. It’s really a shining time for all trekkers when they reached their destinations. All trekkers are shouting, some are dancing, some are singing songs together, all are feeling proud of himself that they completed the trek. When I reached and sit at Triund, a dog come and sat near me. He started playing with me. Its make me active once again.
Now I was in Triund and the view is so ultimate. Its the sunset time and all people are amazed to see this kind of sunset. A sunset between clouds and mountains. I felt that I am in between the clouds, I can see the clouds downside me. I really amazed to see this amazing view. I clicked so many pictures in front of this view and makes some amazing time-lapse also. Its last day of the year and I can proudly say that it is the best day of the year…
