Schedule

Day 1 - DEHRADUN TO HIMRI (Drive)
  • We start the day early from Dehradun and travel to the Tons valley. There are public transportation facilities available from Dehradun or one could hire a private transport. The route is extremely beautiful and one finds himself winding his way up into the mountains via Nainbag and Damta. Purola is the last big city on the route with good network connectivity. It is a beautiful city with scenic farmlands. After Purola we cut into the Tons valley and cross Mori and Netwar. From Netwar we follow the Rupin river upwards. Himri is roughly half way between Netwar and Dhaula. We break for the day and camp by the river side. Rupin has clear blue water that rumbles down the hills.
Day 2 - HIMRI TO BHEETRI (Drive) AND BHEETRI TO KURLA THAACH (8km Trek )
  • We leave Himri after light breakfast. Jeeps are arranged for travel to Bheetri, which is the last motorable village on our route. Bheetri stands at roughly 2500m altitude from sea level. For its altitude, Bheetri is a large village with over a hundred households. The village folks are mostly agrarian. The local diety is Sherkudeya Devta, or the Whistling God, and like in all villages of the area, a big temple stands in his honour in the centre of the village courtyard. From Bheetri we start our journey on foot. We cross the village and after a short distance of 2 km we come across Sarutaal, a beautiful seasonal pond at the edge of the cliff. The lake and the cliff overlook the Rupin valley below. After a short break to catch our breath and enjoy the view, we move further. Forest cover starts soon after (? Trees ?). A 6 km hike gets us to our destination for the day - Kurla Thaach (2600m). A thaach is a grassy opening in the middle of the forest. These grassy meadows are home for Gujjars and their herds of cattle and equines. You can easily spot cows, buffalloes, horses and khacchars grazing in the grassy pastures. These animals are domestic in nature and do not pose a threat but one should refrain from getting too close to them lest we frighten them. We spend the night at Kurla.
