Silent Waterfall Cafe - A less known Dayhike in McLeodganj

 "Let's fall, Let's fall in the ocean of love,
  Let's fall like water from a cliff high above"

While most people hike to Bhagsunag Falls & Triund, there are very few who visit Silent waterfall cafe, a dayhike which begins from Base camp of Triund (Galu devi temple).

Required Gear-

  1. Rain Poncho/jacket
  2. Hiking pole (Trail may become slippery and narrow a some points)
  3. A litre of water
As it is named, 'The silent waterfall cafe' there is a small tea shop at the waterfall gave this name to the place. The place is truly a hidden gem which is no easy to find for any ordinary person. 
The place has series of small waterfalls one above the other which create numerous small & large pools for a perfect dip in hot summers. The trek begins from Galu devi temple if you take a left instead of heading straight to Triund. 
The Trail is an easy one Rated as T-1 on Swiss Alpine Club scale (SAC).
The Silent Waterfall

The total distance should be about 2.45 Km one way. As one takes a left from Galu devi temple, the only thing that accompany us till our destination is a water pipeline always to our right and a leafy trail (If hiking in monsoon). There is a small tea shop en-route which serves basic meals, Cold drinks, chocolates, Maggie, and tea of course. There is no other tea shop or even a glimpse of civilisation for the rest of journey except some shepherds passing by.
It takes an hour to an average person to reach the waterfall and the views are simply magnificent.
I Found a silent place above the waterfall some distance apart from a group of local college guys enjoying their sunday and having fun, and I began writing a poem to document this beautiful view.
Spending an hour and having the costliest maggie noodles ever (Rs. 100/-), I was about to get back to Dharamkot but it started raining heavily. This valley like kareri is notorious for rain clouds so always carry a Rain jacket along.
Leafy path in monsoon.
