    Description

    McLeodganj is base for many popular long and short treks. The most popular of the trail leads to Triund, which is a short trek of 9 kms from Mcleodganj but takes you to great seclusion from the worldly pleasures. Triund trekking is an adventure and nature lover’s paradise. In such short time it takes you from the city life to a different world. Triund is a magical place in itself! The first glimpse of this amazing grass top ridge and mesmerizing views of the ‘Moon Peak’ right next to it is bound to leave you speechless and turn you into a storyteller.

    Situated at a height of over 2,800 meters, Triund offers you a chance to be as close to the mountains as you could get in a short 4-5 hours trek. Triund trek is open round the year, though a little difficult from December to February as is covered in snow. Those who want to catch up with snow shall trek further (5 kms) to Ilaqa Glacier, which is permanent snowline. Further one can go scaling the Moon Peak or crossing the Indrahar Pass.

    The Triund trek in winters becomes a little difficult and the risk involved is higher in snow as the trail is hidden by the snow. Our local guiding team takes you to the top and makes sure that everything is safe. Do book this wonderful Trek to Triund with Crazy Peaks for some of the best memories of the lifetime.

    A must read – A story that will help you plan for your Triund trek on our blog.

    RISKS & PRECAUTIONS

    Every adventure has its own set of risks and precaution one needs to take.

    Triund Trek is a beginners easy-grade trek. But the same makes it risky because many first timers come who are unaware of the basic risks in adventure.

    Risks in a fine weather day can be pain in the legs due to fatigue, injury due to slip or fall. Mountains can also present harsher climates which include heavy storm and rainfall, snowfall etc. They may add risk to the route.

    Precautions for Triund Trek

    • Most important thing is that you plan for the worst, go with a local guide and listen to instructions at all times.
    • Stick to the main route as much as possible. Locals may be using shortcuts because they know the place inside out and are used to the terrain.
    • Consumption of alcohol or other intoxicants should be strictly avoided.
    • Water intake should be kept high.
    • It is not advisable to trek or leave the camp too far after sunset.
    • Avoid going near steep unmarked slopes.
    • Stop for clicking pictures. Do not go to the edge for clicking selfies.
    • While giving way to the mules that pass-by, always and always stand to the mountain side.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Can services be upgraded to match our needs?

    Definitely, yes. We have crafted one basic backpackers package to suit weekend trekkers’ demands. However, we can custom make a program to suit your needs. We can add on premium services that upgrades everything from stay, to guide, to food menu and overall camping experience. We can even club the trek with add-ons like Mountain Yoga, Bird-Watching, Adventure Activities etc. in case you want.

    I do not want to join the group and want a private trek?

    Yes. Many people prefer private treks as one can trek at their own pace, there is a private guide and your privacy is maintained.

    If you are a bigger group, then private treks are arranged without additional charge. However, smaller groups and individuals might have to pay little extra for private arrangements.
