Triund and Snow
Triund Hill is still inaccessible, no shops open, Forest Dept Rest House too closed for Feb mid….and still there is plenty of garbage on Triund trail 🙁
There is about 2 feet snow on trails and at some point its up to 3 feet…..you can only go up to Magic View Cafe owned by Mr Joginder…trek up to Magic View Cafe resumed by efforts of Mr Joginder. Beyond this cafe trail is covered under thick snow….and there is possibility of more snow by Feb 2012 and a safer time may by end of Feb 2012 or in the first week of March 2012. This season there is heavy snow fall due to, climate change and you will see more snow next Dec 2012. Today Jan 30th, 2012 we personally went up to check the status and we could not go any further from Magic View Cafe…still if you would like to trek during Feb first or second week it is your choice but then this time you need to go in group with a guide and not as lone trekker….as there is very thick snow in most of trails and during Feb there is more of snow fall, then you’ll have to wait till March…still you can go alone up to Magic View Cafe at a distance of about 1 hour from Gallu Devi Mandir.
