About The Activity
A most popular trek which you can do in very short period. Bhagsu nag is a small village to the east of McLeodganj which is known for its Shiv temples and spectacular views.
Not for the faint of heart, a four-hour uphill hike past Bhagsu to the tiny camp of Triund and the snow line is rewarded with incredible views of Himalayan peaks. On a clear day the scenery from 9,432 feet (2,875 meters) is amazing.
If you cannot make it back to McLeod Ganj before dark, there is one very basic rest house in Triund without water or electricity; you will need to bring your own bed sheets and a flashlight. You can purchase snacks and drinks at small cafes along the trail and on top.
The weather changes around McLeod Ganj quickly; an early morning start is essential. For an average hiking pace, plan on around five hours up to Triund and at least four hours down. Ask for the shortcut trail in Dharamkot to shave some time off of the walk. Alternatively, you can take a taxi from McLeod Ganj to Galu Devi Temple and begin the trek from there.
Also called Bhagsu Falls, this site houses the famous Bhagsunath Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. This is a famous tourist attraction and also an important place for Hindu pilgrims.
The cascading waterfalls, about 20 metres in height, are an absolute marvel to look at, especially during the monsoons. There is a nice cafeteria next to the falls and the area serve as an excellent picnic spot for tourists. Bhagsunag Falls are located about 2 kilometres away from McLeodganj and are best visit while on a trek, although you can also drive up to Bhagsu village.
