The Trek of A one-day trek on the oldest migratory route followed by shepherds of Chamba and Kangra. Years ago, the British begin trekking to Triund on this route and today it is a popular trek route with the domestic as well as foreign tourists. An early morning trek begins from Mcleod ganj (1700 meters), as one ascends to Dharamkot village (2100 meters), panoramic scenes stretch below – layers of hills housing small villages spread in the vast expanse of Kangra valley. Going up a little further, you hear the silence speak in sounds of birds’ wings flapping. It is early dawn and happy, free birds take joyous flights, hovering over your head while your sweating body demands a few resting moments. You can hear the wind and see its presence in swaying tiny twigs and towering pines. The music of birds reverberates all around in their magical chirping.
And then one reaches the Galu Temple (2130 meters), besides which a small refreshment shop aptly named “rest a while.” From this point the trekking gets rigorous, with 22 steep curves and tough trails to Triund. On reaching Triund (2975 meters) the sheer magnificence takes you unawares.
