I remember how eagerly I wanted to go to Mcleodganj and Triund Trek long back, when I saw one of its pictures for the first time on some travel portal. That day I made a promise to myself to visit this place.
When my friends told me about their travel experience at McLeod, I became more curious to visit this place. This summer I got a chance to visit it. In my office everyone was planning for long weekend (i.e. 14th to 16th April 2017) a month ago. But somewhere in mind it was fixed, if I got a chance to travel during this weekend , i will go to McLeod for trekking. I asked to my friend is it possible to do trekking, camping and paragliding within those 3 days? They said it may be hectic but can be done.
So I planned this trip. I consulted with some travel agents about bus, accommodation, travel cost etc. Then finally I booked with Pink House Hotel in Mcleodganj. In that package they provided me bus tickets from Delhi to McLeod and McLeod to Delhi, 1 night stay at hotel, paragliding at Bir, taxi for local sightseeing, breakfast, trekking guide for Triund, camping arrangements (tent, sleeping bag etc.), dinner and breakfast at Triund.
I took bus from Majnu ka Tila at 6:30 PM. There were a dozen of buses for Dharamsala. I felt like every delhiite is going to McLeod. We all took dinner at some royal restaurant at Ambala named "Haveli". I liked the ambiance of the restaurant.
