A “Home Connect” Video Essay by Naresh Gautam:
“The journey is bound to loosen your inner nerves. I hope just like me everyone realizes the power of calm. Home is where the heart is! If you got that vibe once, you’ll feel at home in the peaks of Triund.”
The chosen Home, Triund, is a Hill Station located in Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh in India. The Writer is Naresh Gautam.

Triund Trek – A Risky walk of 9 km amidst the Hills
The trek is 9 km from the city of Mcleodganj with lots of amazing views and difficult terrains. However, first 2 km are not much tough and can be traveled via car easily. After that, you’ll reach the Gallu Mata’s temple and the main part of trek begins.
There is a checkpoint also before heading upwards, where a police officer will note your details esp. the count of bottles you have (also he requests to bring them back so as to keep the travel area tidy).
From here on, it’s your fitness, and natural beauty that counts. Along with highly expensive Maggi, water and snacks at the stalls in the way.
As said, everything will be worth it in the end. Once you reach the top, the view shall suck out all the fatigue from your legs. Thereafter is the time to setup your tents and have chai pakode. After the dinner, have fun and enjoy the bonfire, music, stars and chilling weather…
In the end, I would like to urge to all the wanderer souls to go for a trek for sure. It’s a lifetime experience indeed! Those rocks & stones amidst the way shall teach you great life lessons.
It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert or extrovert kind of person. The journey is bound to loosen your inner nerves. I hope just like me everyone realizes the power of calm. It’s something that mother nature tries to teach us all time, yet we don’t bother much.
And the best of what i found after trekking on mountains is that life is hard but worrying does nothing. Home is where the heart is! If you got that vibe once, you’ll feel at home in the peaks of Triund.
