Precautions for Triund Hiking
Well during your trek to Triund always for any season apply good quality sun protection cream and carry extra pack of cream as the Sun rays up in the mountains are very sharp and crystal clear which can harm your skin in the form of sun tan or sun burn..also wear full sleeve shirt plus a hat to protect your face from sun rays also apply a lip guard gel.
During Winter never forget to wear hot clothes like woollen sweaters, socks , jackets for your body and gloves for hands and if you intend to stop in Triund for more than one day ensure you have either enough cash for guest house and food or have your own sleeping bags and food or food supplement.
Water is major shortage in Triund since the water tank built by Forest Department is in bad shape and you may have to shell out extra cash for water bottles unless you can manage to walk up to a source of water near by the shallow ridge of Triund.
If you are a Nature freak and love photo-shooting, do carry extra backup batteries and rolls or memory cards for camera as up in Triund, there is no source for electrical charge except solar batteries that works only for lighting of solar bulbs.
Final safety measure during trek to Triund, always walk in the inner side of the trek or trail and never try to show off courage or overconfidence by walking on the edges of the trek, because one slip of step will mean, immediate risk to your life as in the past about two or three people lost their lives on treks of Triund.
One can access or Trek to Triund and Laka or Illaqa in McLeodganj, Dharamsala, and Himachal Pradesh.
