Trek with Best friend

My best friend and I wanted to set out on an adventure and decided to trek to Triund. This was our very first trekking experience and I'm so glad that I booked through Banbanjara. Our guide Raman was extremely hospitable patient and knowledgeable. We were the only ones to set up camp right at the top where the view was majestic. They made us very comfortable with clean tents and blankets. Served us hot tea on arrival,piping hot dinner at night and breakfast the following day.They even made us a bonfire to keep us warm when the temperature dropped at night. The sunrise and sunset views were worth the steep climb. The last kilometer to the top was tricky but we were under the able guidance of Raman who motivated us and kept us in high



High Peak point worthwhile

Certainly something that will make the effort to attain that high-peak point worthwhile. This journey's twists and turns are truly captivating. It comes highly recommended. All of the services were executed flawlessly.



Trek with my Wife

My wife and I decided to hike this trail, It's a fantastic trek for beginners. We hiked till we reached the halfway point 4.5 kilometres, which is marked by a tea kiosk. We'll try to finish the trek the following time!



Dharamsala's crown jewel

Triund Hill is Dharamsala's crown jewel, and it feels incredible to be up there. Thank you so much to the BanBanjara crew for such a great experience.




It was my first moderate trek in the rain. Some would say the rainy season is not good for trekking but we loved the weather. The movement of clouds over the mountains, and intermittent exposure to rain and sun made the view so clear when the clouds were gone It was mesmerizing.


Nitin Gupta


Amazing view, the trek was difficult compared to Laka Glacier but it was worth going. The sunset the snow the mountains are amazing experiences 🖤


Raghav Arora


It was an amazing experience. The new adventure got ticked. The views were so satisfying. Worth its experience. The guides were very supportive.




Triund & Laka glacier trek was my first solo trekking experience and I had really great trekking experience with Banbanjara. The organizers were really good at doing their responsibilities and the guide was so helpful and kind. Camping facilities and Food also were really good all 3 days.


Anjali Sharma


The trek was pretty good; yeah the number of people was quite lesser yet we enjoyed it to the fullest. Il went there without any experience but returned with some beautiful tales of the Himalayas. Banbanjara had arranged everything nicely, mainly the members of the Operation Department have guided and helped me a lot, from bookings to inquiries and similarly the during-trek queries.
