Since we were little short of time we took a taxi till Galu Temple (2115 Metres) which is at the base of the ascent. There is a 6km rocky trek from here. The trail is a gently rising one...We were so close to the snow covered Dhauladhar range that it felt like a waking dream. Here we were at 2875 meters after covering an altitude of approximately 700m in 4 hours. We quickly made arrangements for our overnight stay at the campsite on the Triund Hill. Our camps were ready and the bonfire was set ablaze. We sat around it, warming our hands and feet, in complete amazement of the world we were in. ” Read Full Review
