I am planning trip to Dharamshala/Mcleodganj in March 2011. The tentative dates are 17 to 20 March. During this i am planning to trek upto triund and ilaqa. I have few queries:

1. Is weather OK during this time around Mcleodganj?
2. Are the tents available at triund top or needs to be booked from Mcleodganj or Dharamshala for night stay at triun?
3. Do we need any guide?
4. Are eatables available at triund top or we have to arrange them from Mcleodganj?
5. Need to carry woolens/jackets?

I think the weather should be okay.. I went to Triund last year in late March, and it was gorgeous..Even got a bit hot while climbing up..but otherwise basic set of sweater/jacket should be good enough..If there are rain storms, then it can get a bit cold..There was a smallish storm at night in Triund..but nothing very extreme..

Tent options are available at the top, and unless you happen to go on a very crowded day, you should be able to get one on the spot..Dont worry - you will find something

Guide is not strictly needed, we took one as this was our first trek in this area, and while it was helpful, its not absolutely necessary, if you have a bit of experience as a trekker

Lots of eatables were available at every couple of kms all the way to the top..

I was in Mcleodganj last week on 16-17 Feb, 16 was a sunny day but we faced Snow Fall on 17. We returned to Kangra on 17th Feb evening. We heard weather was good on 18th but again it become bad on 19th with heavy snowfall in Mcleodganj Area.

I think weather should be okay by mid March.

If your trekking is starting Bhagsunag Pass then it was accessible on 17th Feb.

Enjoyeee

Regards
Rushi

The program looks okay to me. A guide is not absolutely mandatory, and so not taking one should not be a problem.

Well, Triund is just a a mountain top and I dont think there are any built toilets there..Get close to nature

Not sure of snow at Triund (unlikely in fact), but you will certainly find lots of snow at Snowline..

There is a lot of snow at Triund still but it will likely have melted by the time you arrive. This weather forecast is great and you can send him a message on the blog or via Facebook. He usually knows the snow situation at Triund.

Right now there is still a lot of snow below Triund.
Unfortunately there is nowhere to rent bicycles in McLeod Ganj or Dharamsala.
