It all began as a 1 week Delhi trip from Trivandrum, way down south. Till then, we had seen the mighty Himalayas only in textbooks and we definitely couldn't miss it on this trip with school friends. Our friend's friends suggested to try out the Triund trek as it is considered as the best one for first time trekkers and would be comparatively easy. We got a point of contact in Mcleodganj who would accompany us on our trek, help us with the overnight camping and the descend the next day. You could easily find one from Mcleodganj itself, to keep in mind, it costed us 1500 INR per person as of 2017 June including tent, an evening tea, dinner and breakfast for the next morning.
We boarded an overnight bus from Delhi on a sunday which would reach Mcleodganj next morning at around 8. We took a taxi from the bus stop to reach the hotel and met the person who would be our guide from now on. We freshened up and left our hotel before 9. As we were told about slight chances of drizzling while trekking, we bought raincoats from one of the nearby shops.
