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.

The best experience I could get could considering that it was my first Trek,the picturesque locations and the admirable hospitality was something someone can only dream of.Though due to off season in December my group was not able to complete the trek but whatever we witnessed was something neither of us can forget.The camping under a boulder is something I can never forget.The best thing of this trek is that you will always find a dog companion who will keep you motivated on this trek...

As an adventure lover I visited many places but this was one of the best where I do trekking, and camping but the best part was the bonfire with live music, the guide was professional and the food was little bit spicy but I enjoy this trek a lot. Highly recommended as this is not so difficult so freshers can also do this.
