Triund is just 10 kilometers from Bhagsu Nag which is now very famous among foreigner tourist as a trekking paradise. Triund is name of a ridge in Dhauladhar Himalayas... Reaching Triund is very easy for people coming to Mcledoganj and Dharmshala.
Accommodation at Triund is available in the rest house of Forest Department, but water has to be fetched from a distance of about 2 kilometers. Most of the times trekkers prefer to stay in tents.
