Whenever we think of travelling there are n number of things we starts thinking off..

Planning, Money, Tickets, Hotels ......

Do we really need that? What actually required is Courage and Passion.

When we friends have started out trip to Triund then we were not having any plans, not even any bookings for us. It was just our courage that we have to go. Somehow we managed bikes for us and some money so that we can afford fuel for our bikes as well as for ourselves.

There in Dharmshala you have a lot of activities to do. It's a perfect to place to visit with family as well as friends. You can find temples, lakes, valleys. You can choose for Adventures, Relaxing, Sightseeing..

We had planned for trekking and camping at Triund.

For that we had to go to McLeod Ganj. McLeod Ganj is a suburb of Dharamshala in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, India. It is known as "Little Lhasa" or "Dhasa" because of its large population of Tibetans.

And now the main journey started...

Trekking from Dharamshala. We had to trekk for 9 km. The starting point of triund trek is BhagsuNag( Upper Dharamshala). We had to trekk for 5-6 hours.

To reach BhagsuNag you can hire a cab. They will drop you at BhagsuNag. We had our own bike to we reached there easily.

Camping...

If you are going at the top, that is TRIUND. Then you should prefer to ask for the camps at BhagsuNag only. Few shops are there you can ask them and even better options are to book for a camping package at Dharamshala only.

Since we were already late. We took a lot of time there at the temple and also one of our bikes got damaged. It was already 4 PM we started trekking for Triund.

Sleeping under the stars is one of the best feeling and the feeling over there can never be expressed in words. You must visit at-least once in your lifetime.
