This place is beautiful no doubt but crowded with tourist all the time. Market lanes are very narrow and full of people.

2N 3D Trip to Mcleodganj and Triund : Chasing the Monsoon Heaven

So, I called my friend married Souvik on one Wednesday eve and asked : “Bhai, ab tu bas as a couple hi trips pe jata h ya mere sath chalega?Brother, now you just go to trips as a couple or will you go with me?”Souvik : “Bilkul chalunga yar, but kab aur kaha? Of course I will come, but when and where?”So this green signal from my friend pumped me to plan the trip for the same weekend. The location as Mcleodganj and Triund was final, but arranging the transportation, hotel and trek camp in 1-2 days was a strenuous task for me to complete along with my office work. A travel specialist organizing the trip for me by understanding my travel needs, schedule and budget was my only hope at that time.After some research on the internet, I decided to go with travel platform HelloTravel and posted my travel requirements through their website.HelloTravel connected me with one of their best travel specialist- Pocketfriendly Vacations within few hours and I got the call and detailed itinerary as per my budget and schedule for 2Nights and 3 Days Triund Trek Tour.Only thing left now was – packing our bags…
