St. John in the Wilderness Church

Forsyth Gunj protects the famous Anglican Church, St. John in the Wilderness which is dedicated to John the Baptist. The church has a very old history as the background as it was built in the year of 1852 near Dharamshala, on the way to McLeod Ganj. The neo-Gothic architectural style accommodated by the church suggests totally a different appeal to it and also the surroundings filled with deodar trees add beauty in abundance to the whole location. The church is just a 20 minute downhill walk away from the Bus Station at McLeod Ganj. The ruins of a graveyard where the British people who were killed in the earthquake of 1905 are seen on one side and a restored bell tower on another side of the church attract people’s eyes so fast.

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.

This trek was really good. First of all, during season time, the weather was amazing. You can expect so many people to climb the mountain. It is a trek and not some spiritual or religious tour and that's why lot of trekkers love it. The old charm is definitely lost but still it was fun to see the nature like that. The trek is filled with amazing valley and landscapes which are a nice sight to see and cherish.

The trekking through Dhauladhar is awesome. The mighty mountains give anyone a rush of excitement. The trek trails are pretty unambiguous. It is normal walk and climb than hike or trek. The first 5 kms is something that can be easily cover, after which the trek gets tougher and tougher. We relaxed at a couple of tea stores for some cutting chai and biscuits. After which we continued the trek.
