Need Advice for Visiting Dharamshala and Triund Hike

Hello,

We are planning on visiting Dharamshala during the last week of August. We are an active family of 4, with 2 children (10 & 14) and have done a lot of hiking here in the U.S. We are planning on doing the Triund Trek, with an overnight stay at Triund. Information I gathered says that we can start the hike from Bhagsu Nag near Dharamshala. So, I suppose staying in a nice hotel in Dharamshala for 3-4 nights would be a good way to do this hike. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions/advice about this hike from those who have done it or know the area well.

We will be flying into Delhi from the U.S and first do some sight seeing there for 3-4 days and then head over to Dharamshala. What are our best options for traveling in comfort from Delhi to Dharamshala? I don't want to be driving 10-15 hours from Delhi to Dharamshala like some people do. What is the closest airport to Dharamshala that we can fly to from Delhi and how long is the drive from that airport for Dharamshala?

Thanks,

Viji

35-40 mins drive from Kangra Airport.

The hike is really nice and as you have done a lot of hiking before, you would be easily able to do it.

Nighy stay in triund will be great.

Yes you can start your trek from Bhagsu waterfall.

Instead of Dharamshala you can even consider staying in McLeod Ganj.

Visit the dalam lama temple and have peaceful stay.
