This was my first trek and I'm so glad I opt it. In triund is all the nature you can experience at once. The cold breeze, the mountains, the water, the trees, the rocks (they are real beauty of the trek), the clouds/fog, the animals, the people, everything about triund is special. The views were breathtaking, I wanted to capture everything I could in my camera. This is one of a hell experience you should not miss. The camping arrangement was nice. They provide you good tents, sleeping bags, nice and clean. We got snacks and meals and even breakfast and it was unexpectedly awesome. You get less options but you get to choose what you will be eating. This experience made me fall in love with trekking.
