Jeep will drop you on the stand and you have to walk straight for dolma chowk. Dolma chowk is the main chowk of macleodganj where restaurants, cafes, hotels and small shops are available.
I reached in the evening to macleodganj. It was end August so it was monsoon in himachal. I like monsoon treks because the beauty of the treks are at there peak.
From trivago I booked the hotel , you can directly ask for hotels as well. I freshened up and left to haul the market. For the trek we went to an agency and confirmed our seats for the triund trek for Rs. 1300/- each including guide, tents, lunch, dinner and next morning breakfast. The trek was for one day only.
In macleodganj you will find more chinese food than any other food.
Next morning we started our trek at 10 A.M with our guide. Trek starts from macleodganj only. It is 9km from macleodganj to triund top. The trek started with a steep climb surrounded with deodhar trees which are as tall as MNC in Delhi.
After a km the way divides and the mountain starts which will lead you to triund. The way is cloudy, silent, and mesmerizing.
