Triund is the name of a crest in the Dhauladhar ranges in The Himalayas. It is a 9 km trek from Mcleod Ganj. The place gives a breathtaking view of the moon peak - Indera Pass. Triund was ideal for camping with its unpolluted air and the unspoiled environment making the place an eco-friendly tourist spot. It offered green forests and undulated hilly areas in the Himalayan Ranges. From Triund, we trekked a bit further up to Laka Got. The trek to Triund took around 4 hours from Mcleod Ganj and was totally worth every step that I climbed.

connects the Kullu Valley with the Lahul and Spiti valleys, Himalayan Range
Situated on the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas, the Rohtang Pass acts as the gateway to the Lahaul and Spiti Valleys. It also connects them to the Kullu Valley thus making the access of the districts easier with Leh. The meaning of 'Rohtang' is the 'Land of Corpses'. This is because, in this place died a number of people who has tried to cross this place and move ahead towards more difficult places like Zanskar. The Rohtang Pass also serves as the gateway to Zojila and Leh on other sides of it. The natural beauty and serenity of this place makes it a favourite of photographers and nature lovers. The sight of lovely glaciers, twin peaks of Geypan, the Lahaul Valley and the Chandra River make this place even more beautiful. The Rohtang Pass is also situated on the watershed basin of the Chenab and the Beas Rivers and the main activities to be enjoyed here are skiing and sledge rides.

Simla is the capital and the largest city of the northern India state of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamsala being the other capital. Shimla is also a district which is bounded by Mandi and Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, the state of Uttarakhand in the south-east, and Solan and Sirmaur. Sitting majestically above the lush plains, the British designated the town as the summer capital of India. The higher terrains of the town reflect this British connection, embodied by its buildings, built in the Victorian style, while the lower slopes are occupied with Indian bazaars and restaurants. The nearest broad gauge head is at Kalka - a four- to seven-hour journey from Delhi. After that, take the mountain train from Kalka to Shimla. This railway track has recently been granted the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
