This trek was done as a part of our trip to Dharmshala and Mcllo. More information about these places you can find : http://exploreindiaa.blogspot.com/2010/03/kangradharamshala-and-mcleod-ganj.html
Trek start from Dharamkot. As planned we woke up around 7AM and reached main chowk. Left for Dharamkot in Auto.I will recommend walking from McLeod Ganj to Dharamkot as place is not far away. From Dharamkot there are two paths, we took shortcut which meets main way after 1.5 KM and there is one cafe further .5Km on the way. We took breakfast and bought some candies from the cafe and left.
Trek is well laid path and you don’t need guide. We met local people on the way. After another 2.5 Km we reached another cafe but this time we decided not to stop. Now it was about 3 hours since we started walking. Pandey and I was listening to music and walking. Nitin was busy in taking photographs (where pandey was posing in front of each photograph). Sahu was walking at his own pace but slows down whenever we open something to eat.By this time Rathik was very tired and was finding it difficult to walk. Rishab didn’t came with us and he went to Church.From this point onwards i started encouraging Rathik to walk and we reached ‘Triund-Top’ by 12:30 PM.
This place was worth walking this much as we was able to see Hanuman ka Tibba (5639 m) highest peak of ‘Dhauladhar’ ranges of Himalayas. Nitin,I and Pandey decided to move further till Tibetan Temple while Rathik took some photos at Triund. Sahu talked to some Israelies and Suchit was posing for Rathik. There are number of shops at this place and you can buy whatever you want. Things are little costly. We took lunch and slept for half an hour. In this half an hour , Nitin snored 29 times (counted by Rathik).
We left the top around 3:15PM. I and Sahu were walking fast so reached down by 5:PM while others were walking slow so they took 30 mins more than us. Rathik get injured(ankle twisted) on the way.This time we took the long way and reached ‘Dharamkot’. Here I and Sahu decided to walk till ‘McLeod-Ganj’. Nitin gave us party in ‘Bhagsu-Punjabi’ Dhaba and we all slept well for the night.
