During monsoon season Sheapherds’ from villages of Dharamsala and Kangra come to Triund with their livestock and after spending some time in Triund head further to Illaqa and go over Indrahar Pass and Jot of Dhauladhar in search of green pastures for their farm animals. One of the interesting thing is that in monsoon they push more than 200 livestock up in Dhauladhar mountain and sorroundings of Triund but only one or two sheapherds’ manage them as most of the sheapherd’s leave behind their livestock in the care of the other sheapherds’ and god and return to homes. The remaining all stay up there from May to October.
The Sheapherds start climbing down the Dhauladhar and Triund by the middle of October month to avoid harsh winters.These Shepherds have been on Triund trails for ages and they will continue.
