HolidayIQ Reviewer Rubal Arora says, “Pay 750 per group (10) and start your trek with a guide provided to you by the forest department. The trek is not that tough but does demand a certain level of fitness. Keep in mind that this trek doesn't follow any straight road except the first 200 or so metres. Sports shoes are advised as you will need to grip the rocks.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nirupam Bhattacharya adds, “A casual trek to Triund Hill Mountains and Hills. The trail is rocky and cuts into steps at some places. From Galu temp, e the trail starts as a gentle ascend till Magic View cafe. After the cafe, the ascent is steeper, finally cumulating in a steep final one kilometre stretch through a forest of Deodars and Rhododendron. This final stretch through the woods is known as 22-curves, because of the 22 switchbacks that one has to walk through to get to Triund.Read Full Review
