It was an amazing experience, as i was so excited already for this trek and the beauty of this place did not disappointed me. It was too cold during the night, i could not sleep as sleeping bags was not enough warm. I would definitely recommend this trek but make sure you are prepare enough to survive in temperature -1 to -5 during the night, you can carry extra thermal wears if you are planning this trek between October -March.

Exciting trek to Laka Got Glacier. Seeing this place is just so amzing. I never thought even in dreams that such places could exist in India but it was just so good. We had two day trek-one day to Triund and another day to Laka glacier. There was a camp stay too and there the facilities were nicely arranged. Some of the beautiful places which fell on our way were Dhauladhar and Kangra mountain ranges and Lahesh Caves trail. Seeing these places was just out of this world. We camped for two days and both days were superb with a memorable dinner and a lot of laughter with friends. Our tour operator was also funny and friendly. It was a superb trip.

This was the first trek of my life and it was an experience that's roused a hunger for adventure in me that I never knew existed. The first night at Triund provided me sights of the night sky I had never seen. The view of Dharamshala and the entire Kangra district was absolutely breathtaking. On the second day, we trekked to Laka Glacier and since we had time remaining during the day, our guide took us all the way to Lahesh Cave and it was mesmerizing.

I felt it as a soulful trek. With all my heart and energy, I did it. Great landscape. Pure nature with fresh air. Only one with a good physical strength can do this trek. Staying up there gave me a lot of happiness which I can't express in words. Available food was maggi, rotis, etc. Luxury is not promised in terms of facilities. But in terms of experience, this is a must go trek. Rare flowers, rare wild animals, and a beautiful forest were the main attractions I came across.

Triund and Laka Glacier trek is a special memory for me. It was my first trip with my college friends and we had a lot of amazing time trekking and camping in Triund. The setting of the camp was just so awesome. We were given a delicious dinner. Our guide also offered chocolates and snacks while we were trekking. Camping was also a beautiful experience.

Booking this trek through Thrillophilia was the best decision ever for my group. This trekking expedition became the most memorable trip of our life. The credit goes to the unmatched beauty of Himachal and our trekking guide Yogesh Ji who helped us throughout the trek.

-Start walking every day for at least 30-45 minutes at a stretch

-Climb stairs whenever you can

-Buy good trekking shoes (if you don’t have them already) and get used to wearing them

Also, keep in mind that if you travel between March to June, the entire area would be covered in snow. The snow starts to melt July onwards and it is also the monsoon season in the region. Taking into consideration all these factors, we suggest the below-mentioned gears that you should pack for your trip:
-Strong trekking shoes, sports shoes aren’t enough
