Trip Summary

“Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains.”

Jeffrey Rasley

Mcleod Ganj –

McLeod Ganj or Mcleodganj is a suburb of Dharamshala in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, India. It is known as “Little Lhasa” or “Dhasa” (a short form of Dharamshala used mainly by Tibetans) because of its large population of Tibetans. The Tibetan government-in-exile is headquartered in McLeod Ganj which treats the suburb as its capital-in-exile.

Mcleod Ganj is  famous for its Tibetan culture and its beautiful location in Dhauladhar ranges of Himalayas.Whether you are a backpacker or an adventure junkie or  you seek some peace time with nature, Mcleod Ganj has everything for everyone.


Triund is an alluring meadow, situated in the laps of Dhauladhar mountains. It has the perfect view of the Dhauladhar mountains on one side and Kangra valley on the other. Triund is a very popular trekking spot. Triund trek can be described as a tranquil trek which can be easily accomplished by almost all age groups. The trail to Triund goes through a beautiful mixed forest of oak, deodar and rhododendron. Trek is fairly easy for the first five kilometers but the last one kilometer may require a bit of toil, the last one kilometer is popularly known as the “22 curves”. Along the way there are many small chai shops where one can refresh during the hike. The traipse is worth it as the panorama when you reach Triund is awe-inspiring and exhilarating.

Bir is a village located in the west of Joginder Nagar Valley in the state of Himachal Pradesh in northern India. Mostly referred to as “Paragliding Capital of India”, Bir is also a noted center for ecotourism, spiritual studies and meditation.
