Take the Thatarna trek for a little fun and adventure mixed with serenity

If you are going to Dharamshala and looking for an exclusive experience with good views but lesser crowd, take the Thatarna Trek.

While most people go for widely popular Triund Trek, I took Thatarna trail with moderate climb for breathtaking views of majestic Dhauladhar mountain range

You can either do a day return or camp there overnight. One way journey is about 3-4 hours and the trek is moderate

The hike is moderate and takes about 3-4 hours on either side

The hiking trail has some interesting pathways and you can relax in the lap of nature for some unforgettable moments in peace.

Halt to seek some blessings and a pic with beautiful background

If you are a later riser, worry not. You can start at around 10am and catch the sunset golden hour before your return. There is not much of an activity up there but you can spend a really joyful time in tranquillity. In case you are camping on the top, try to choose a day with good conditions for star gazing. You can also catch first rays of sun, the following morning.
