About Activity

The Har Ki Dun, meaning Valley of Gods, is a treat for first-time trekkers and nature lovers. Har Ki Dun is a moderate trek, which takes you to one of the least explored places in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, and is suitable for both, first-time trekkers, and also those who are experienced in other parts of the Himalayas.

Har Ki Dun Trek lies in the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park, and another famous trek in the vicinity is the Kedarkantha Peak Winter trek. Har Ki Dun trek gives you the magnificent views of famous peaks of Swargarohini, Bandar Poonch, Kala Nag (or Black peak) and the Har Ki Dun peak itself. The drive from Dehradun to Taluka is a scenic one, via Mussoorie, Barkot, Purola, Netwar, Motwat along the Tons River. The condition of the roads from Sankri to Taluka (Where Har Ki Dun Trek starts) is rough, but part of the charm of the place.


Itinerary

Day 01: Drive from Dehradun to Sankri/Taluka via Mussoorie (220 Kms - 10 Hrs)

The very first day, we will meet at Dehradun railway station at 6:00 am, for our journey through the curvaceous roads of the Shivalik Himalayas. Today’s journey from Dehradun to Sankri/Taluka is about 220 Kms long and takes around 10 hours. En-route, we will stop for breakfast, and also get fresh for the rest of the journey. Reach Sankri late in the evening, and take full rest at the camp for the Har Ki Dun Trek.

Day 02: Osla - Trek from Sankri to Taluka

Today, we will go trekking from Osla to Har Ki Doon, to Har Ki Dun top. Be warned, most people who witness the beauty of the place are struck by a sudden lack of will to go back down! The trek is rewarding through open meadows and views of snow-capped peaks. After trekking for about 6 hours, we reach the camp and relish the delicious lunch prepared by our team, while enjoying the views of the pristine trek in the Himalayas.

Day 03: Har ki Dun-Trek from Osla to Har Ki Dun

We follow the same routine of morning exercise and breakfast, post which, our trek leader will brief us about today’s trek schedule. Today, we trek for around 14 km. There is a unique temple of Duryodhan, from Mahabharatha, in Osla village, situated at an altitude of 2650 m. Along the trek route, you will cross bridges over the Tons river, lush green valleys covered with wild orchids of the Himalayas, and if you are lucky, then you may encounter the rich wildlife of the Himalayas like barking deer, bharal, blue sheep, bear or leopard too. Reach the camp and immerse in the pristine beauty of the Garhwal Himalayas. Pitch your tents and try your hand at Night Long exposure photography.

Day 04: Har Ki Dun Trek - Exploration Day

Today is our exploration day; those who want to enjoy an exotic book reading session can relax in the camp, and the rest can trek up to Jaundhar Glacier, which is around 4 km away and takes around 3 hrs to reach, with a view to die for. After our healthy breakfast and packed lunch, we start today’s leg of Har Ki Dun trek with the visit to the Jaundhar Glacier. After spending a few hours, we return to Har Ki Dun camp.

Day 05: Osla-Trek from Har Ki Dun to Osla (11Kms - 4 Hrs)

Today will be the easy part of the trek, though going downhill is always tricky. We trek by the same route, and hence, already have an idea about the landscape. After a tiring day, relax for some time, have your sumptuous lunch, and set off to explore the area.

Day 06: Sankri-Trek from Osla to Sankri (25 Kms - 8 Hrs)

Be ready to trek down the entire leg of the trek, from Osla Village to Sankri, in one go, a long, but not so tiring journey, as the entire route is downhill. Reach camp and relax.

Day 07: Dehradun Railway Station-Trek from Har Ki Dun to Osla (11Kms - 4 Hrs) 

We start our drive early in the morning to Dehradun Railway station, marking the end of our trip.
