If you are wondering about the best time to visit Triund and Dharamshala; we would suggest booking your slots for the winter months. That means between December to February. The weather will be freezing, and you could walk on a sheet of ice. For those who love to master the art of balancing and walking through the ice, this is a great place to indulge in some great adventure. You can visit between March to April also – during the summer months, but skip the monsoon for any kind of adventure. The monsoon is slippery and not fun at all.
For the Triund trek, the height is not much of an issue, but you can in any way carry your medicines for mountain sickness. Our trek packages for the McleodGanj- Triund trek, will include the Triund trek camp (made feasible as per the permit at that time), and complete tour-guided trek session up to the Triund Top and back, and finally meals packaged or on-site.
