"Every service provided was excellent but the place is too commercialized and toooooooo crowded."

This trip was amazing. It took us to the city full of Tibetan culture and their monasteries. I was expecting such a beauty. Along with the pleasant and beautiful climate, Dharamshala is not just an eye-candy. It has much more to offer in the context of sightseeing. What’s more there are a lot of adventure tours that one can take. If you are an adventurous person like me then you can also go for the short paragliding and trekking trips in Dharamshala along with this trip, if the time permits. This trip brought us back to New Delhi after the trip, which was a huge relief as we did not have to make the travel plans. We relished the trip with the beautiful memories of Himachal Pradesh and its Culture.

Triund is the crown jewel of Dharamshala. It is situated in the laps of Dhauladhar mountains. I had an amazing experience with the Triund trek. It has a perfect view of mountains from one side and the Kangra valley on the other. Despite being a popular trekking spot, this trekking spot is not over crowded or polluted. This trek was one of the best experiences that I ever had. I so loved this trek and I want to do this trek again. This may sound stupid, but yeah I want to do this trek again sooner.

As the trek started from Dharamshala, we all were looking forward to it. McLeod Ganj and then Kareri Lake...the trek was pretty easy and filled with awesome moments. The villages on the way were way better than we thought and for a moment we all felt like settling down there permanently.

One thing I would like to mention here - The organizers organised this trek very well. Though it is only 3 days, we had plenty of fun and excitement all the way from McLeod Ganj to Trinud. Captivating sceneries, fascinating mountains, exciting terrains made our trek real amazing.

We did the Kareri Lake trek during the summers. Even during that time, it was so beautiful and made our trek ever-memorable. The trekking guides carried out the entire trek so decently. Planning to visit the lake during the winters now!
