Har Ki Dun Trek

Har Ki Dun Himalayas, Uttarakhand
7 Days6 Nights

Event Overview

Often recommended to beginners, Har Ki Dun trek traces the lush green valley of Har Ki Doon, at the base of the Fateh Parvat at an altitude of 3556 m in the Garhwal Himalayas. If you want a trek that is adventurous, yet, moderate in terms of difficulty, combined with scenic views and wildlife, Har Ki Dun is the perfect trek for you.

The trek starts from Sankri at 1950 m. It will walk you through pretty meadows lined with orchids, terraced fields and glaciers and the best of all – the panaromic mountain peaks forming the most beautiful background for all your pictures. You will find all the peace and quiet that you need as urban living hasn’t yet penetrated the lifestyle of the people here. The dense alpine forests are a habitat to many flora and fauna and this trek will be a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers.

Schedule

Day 1 - Dehradun – Sankri
  • This adventurous journey to Garhwal region of Uttarakhand starts from the capital of Uttarakhand; Dehradun. It is one of the oldest cities in India and has a large number of tourists each year due to its picturesque landscapes and vibrant weather. It is nestled between the Ganges and the Yamuna. Various historical sites of architectural value can be found here with auspicious temples that are renowned. We will pick you up at 7.00 AM from the Dehradun Railway station and from then on we are the companions of the most awaited trip. We will drive to Sankri via the queen of hills i.e. Mussoorie. Ironically, popular tourist destinations don’t even deserve your attention when you’re on a bigger journey like this. Mussoorie is not just another hill station on the way but has a pretty rich history in itself. Ruskin Bond, Stephen Alter, and Bill Aitkin (to name a few) all call Mussoorie their home. The British architecture can still be spotted across the town. Snow-clad hills start to show up in the distance from Mussoorie onwards. We will also have the awesome views of “Kempty Falls” en-routing Sankri. Sankri is the base camp of this exhilarating expedition and the entry point to the charismatic Har Ki Dun. It is a scenic village that is conveniently situated at the astounding pinnacle of 1950 meters, in the Tons Valley with elating views of the Himalayas. It is magically located 13 km inside the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary. The beautiful sun setting behind the Himalayas coupled with the shimmer of the Swargarohini peak makes Sankri an ideal base camp amidst the ridges. Reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek that lays ahead and overnight stay at Sankri.
Day 2 - Sankri (2000m) – Taluka – Osla
  • Good morning Sankri… So the first night that was so far away from home will be over but it’s sweet dreams won’t. After breakfast, a short drive to Taluka village will take us to the beginning of our 15 km trek through the forest trails of Gangar. Taluka (altitude of 2075 m), a small hamlet lays on the banks of the river Supin and is known for its beautiful “Pahari cottages” made out of an intricate wood, stone and mud ensemble – a must see, as it is considered earthquake proof. The trail from Taluka village initially descends and then continues gradually on the true left of the valley adjoining the river Rupin. Later the trail winds upwards through the beautiful forest full of Chestnut, Walnut and Willow trees, and continues to the village of Gangar. Osla (altitude of 2650 m) is a clandestine village in the Mori Tehsil of the Uttarkashi District. This beautiful abode offers extraordinary sceneries within the prominent mountain backdrops. The Temple of Duryodhana is sited here, which is believed to hold a significant historical significance by the locals. The tears shed by the locals are believed to have formed the River Tamas when the demise of Duryodhana occurred at the battle of Kurukshetra. Stay will be overnight in camps directly under the magnificent stars with refreshing Campfire.
