Weather in the September month was used to be dry with mild rain and without snow, but in year 2012 Dhauladhar and Triund Hill, Himachal Pradesh have witnessed heavy rain fall , landslides and untimely snowfall over higher reaches due to unscrupulous cutting of trees and pollution.
In the name of development the construction of many Micro hydel projects within mountains have also fueled the depletion of environment and the symptoms of its devastating results can be seen right now.
Further the governments and private companies are mulling to construct hotels in mountains. Such development will benefit local public but only for shorter duration and in the future the results will be devastating for public and the world in large.
We the humans love facilities and comfort everywhere even in mountains and forests and for that we just do away with the forests and the wild animals and later blame the Nature for heavy rains and floods. Trekking and hiking in Triund and Indrahar Pass of Dhauladhar was much easier and comfortable during September and October months but now things have turned different.
Triund Hill, Lahesh Cave and Indrahar Pass have proven as best trekking in Himachal Pradesh Dhauladhar range.
In this year of 2012 the climate change, green house gas effect and continuous destruction of forests by humans has resulted in hottest summer for India and other parts of Asia and this heat is increasing on fast track with add on things like pollution and now humans are finding it very difficult to cope with.
Though summer is at its hottest point in this year and coincidentally that too during tourist and holiday season, the travel and tourism industry has gained.
Tourists from the rest of India and even from abroad have chosen to visit places like Manali, Rohtang Pass, Dharamsala, Mc Leodganj and have given preference trek to Triund Hill under the foothills of the mighty Dhauladhar.
In this year of 2012 the number of tourists going to Triund Hill has significantly increased as compared to previous years. There is unbearable heat in the plains and cities but the weather in Triund Hill is like that of heaven with regular rain and cloudy Dhauladhar. Even people who don’t prefer to trek or walk long distances are trekking to Triund Hill and enjoying the pleasant weather of Triund Hill and the presence of Glaciated Ice in Snowline in Illaka also some are going to neighboring trekking points like Guna Devi, Kareri Lake and some daring tourists are going for adventure activities like hang gliding.
The continuous flow of tourists to Triund Hill will last till August to September end. Triund Hill has turned out to be a pocket friendly hill station in Northern India and since it is also a day hike so tourists who do not want to stay in Triund for a night can come down on the same day, so such tourists find a day hike to the green landscape of Triund Hill wonderful.
Though Manali and Shimla are considered to be the best hill stations in Himachal Pradesh but then it is like for everyone. Everyone can just drive up to in and around Manali and Simla for summer holidays, but then if you seek solitude, serenity and some fine moments away from regular crowded site seeing and holiday and regular shopping then, the best option is the one to five days trek to Triund, Snowline and Lahesh Caves and Indrahar Pass from McLeodganj in Dharamshala.
Dare to follow a moderate trek up to Triund of 9km at an approximate height of 10,000 feet from sea level and stand face to face with semi-immortal, mighty yet humble Dhauladhar mountain range of Himalayas. Spend one night in Forest Department Rest House in Triund and on next day start another trek to Snowline and Lahesh Caves. Put up tents in cave and eat whatever is available and experience nomadic life for one night. Get up early in the morning and start your trek to Indrahar Pass of Mighty Dhauladhar after reaching the Pass stay up for a while and have view of amazing horizon and Triund from the heights of Dhauladhar. Start your retreat for Snowline café and then back to Triund Guest House by evening. Spend another night in Triund Hill and in the morning climb down to McLeodganj.
