Trekkers think when it comes to great treks in summer you can’t beat treks like Rupin Pass or Buran Ghati. And when we talk about Har-Ki-Dun, they think it is a poor cousin. It’s not true at all. Har Ki Dun has to be one of the most adventurus treks in our country. The mountains of Garhwal come with dramatic formations and diverse geographic regions. Streams of crystal-clear rivers formed by the melting of glaciers, lush green meadows, hamlets, pine forests and rugged terrain form the varied topography of this region. But it is perhaps the mythological aspect of the Har-Ki-Dun trek that makes this onerous journey more special. Owing to its isolation, this area is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. It would be a heavenly experience to trek along the “Valley of Gods”, and follow the trail once beaten by Pandavas on their way to the heavens via Swargarohini, the mountain that dominates the Har-Ki-Dun valley.This catchment area is a major source of Yamuna through its largest tributary Tons river.  To note, Har Ki Dun and Ruinsara Nallah from meandering Tamosa river, near Osla village. Tamosa flowing beside Taluka and below the village, Sankri unites with Supin near Jakhol. Supin and Rupin combined at Netwar form the Tons river.

Best Time to Visit: Whole is the best to visit Har Ki Dun. But, the Best time to visit Har-Ki-Dun is in summers (April-June) and winters (October-December). If you wanna enjoy the snow in Har-Ki-Dun. You should come har ki dun in January to March.


Trek Itinerary

Day 1: Reach at Sankri (1950m); 190 Km drive from Dehradun (10 hrs.)

Drive to Sankri from Dehradun is an enchanting hill drive of 9-10 hours stretching over 190 Km ride via Mussoorie, Damta, Naugaon, Purola, Mori and Naitwar. Sankri is our base camp. It is a small but pretty and quiet village in the Uttarkashi district of Uttrakhand and the last road head to Govind Wildlife Sanctuary. You will go across beautiful valleys and forest cover throughout the journey. Stay will be in the Guest House/Camp/Home Stay on a sharing basis.  Transport will be arranged at an additional cost from Dehradun Railway station to Sankri at 06:30 AM. 

 

Day 2: Trek from Sankri to taluka by taxi – 12 km same day trek to Puani Garaat altitude (2550m) (5/6 hrs.)

The trek begins from Taluka followed by a 10 Km trek to Puani Garaat which takes about 6 hours to reach there. After an initial trek to a valley along River Supin, you follow a path that would be interspersed with forests and bridges. No music can ever come close to what is at play here. Another hour of the trek and you reach a bridge on a tributary of Supin river. You’ll find a camping ground as you cross this bridge. After some more climbing, walking and crossing few more bridges, you’d reach Gangaad, a hamlet with few inhabitants. Green vegetation, wild orchids and majestic views of the impressive peaks would highlight, and at the same time, soothe this arduous trek. Overnight stay at Puani Garaat.

 

Day 3: Puani Garaat (2550m.) to Kalkatiyadhaar (2,729m. appx) (6 hrs.)

The day begins with a short trek along the river that takes you to Osla, a small village about 2,590m. above sea level; this village has a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The architecture of this temple is a miracle in itself. You may spend some time here and explore the village before moving on. There is one STD also in Osla but phone connectivity depends entirely on the weather. As you begin your trek from Osla, you would find steep terrain as well as level grounds. You’d have crossed two streams, with the second one having a wooden bridge for trekkers to walk over it. Subsequently, as you proceed ahead of a mountain bend, a series of grasslands would follow. Some of these have been used for cultivation at some point in time. With incline increasing gradually, you would find several huge boulders and tracts of grass. After crossing two more meadows, just below the valley over Supin, you’ll find a wooden bridge that leads you to the grasslands of Dev Thach, Bali Pass, and Ruinsara River. Walking past the wheat fields, you move to the inhabited areas as your trail ascends over the confluence of Ruinsara and Supin. From this vantage point, you will see the majestic views of Black Peak and Bandarpoonch. By the evening, you would reach your campsite Kalkatiyadhaar which takes about 6 hours.
 
 

Day 4: Kalkatiyadhaar (2,729m.) to Har-Ki-dun (3,586m.) and back to Kalkatiyadhaar (9 hrs.)

The trek from Kalkatiyadhaar to Har-ki-Dun is 5 Km where you’d gain an elevation of 857m. On your right, you come across the pastures of Dev Thach, just where the two rivers meet. From this point, the valley bifurcates into two, with Har-Ki-Dun on the left and Ruinsara Taal, Bali Pass on the right. On your way, you could now have a glance at the peak of Har-Ki-Dun and Hata Peak. The grasslands and pine forests would give way to a small waterfall, and from here, a steep climbing for minutes would lead you to level land, with patches of snow becoming more and more prominent all along your path. Some more climbing would take you to a forest stretch with a gradual incline. Once you reach Har-Ki-Dun after crossing a wooden bridge, you’d see the valley dividing into two by a rivulet. The valley towards your left is going to Maninda Taal and Borasu Pass and the other; to Jaundar Glacier. This would include the proximate views of Swargarohini peaks and Jaundar Glacier. After spending some time at Har Ki Dun, we will return to Kalkatiyadhaar camp.

 

Day 5: Kalkatiyadhaar (2,729m.) to Puani Garaat (2,550m.) (6 hrs)

Trekking back to the village Puani Garaat would pass through Osla, this downhill trek would involve descending about 1,066m. in 5 hours. Wake up comfortably as the day is easy and start your 7 km of the trek after having breakfast. The mesmerizing beauty of the Himalayas would always be encouraging and you would find several vantage points to capture the eternal charm of the snow-clad peaks. Camp at Puani Garaat.

Day 6: Puani Garaat (2,550m.) to Taluka (2120m.); drive to Sankri from Taluka (5 hrs.)

Today you will be heading towards Taluka from where it all started approximately 10 km long trail counting about 5 hours. The trail is all the way along the river. Follow a path that would be interspersed with forests and bridges. The way back to Taluka is easy with consistent descents. After reaching Taluka then drive to Sankri, get settled in for an overnight stay in guest house/camp/homestay. Roam around this quiet village and learn some words of the local language, this is appreciated and often results in getting more out of the experience.

Your Expectations

• Safety
Of course, this is a non-negotiable. Safety is embedded in our business and it’s something that we take very seriously in all our treks. It’s the primary reason we’re very popular in just a year.

• Personalized Service, Care, and Attention to Detail
For some organizations, this is, surprisingly, negotiable. But it isn’t for us. After safety, if we can do one thing right, every time, it’s to ensure that we sweat the small things.

• The Best Guides
If you are already trekking with us, then you’d be forgiven for thinking our guides are superhuman. It doesn’t mean feat to entertain, cook, guide and facilitate, but for our guides, they handle it with grace and all the while the attention is on you.

• The Best Itineraries
It takes a lot of refinement to make a perfect trek, from dawn to dusk there are a LOT of moving part and potential for things to go awry. From last one year, we’ve balanced on the tight rope of offering the right amount of activity, flexibility and trek time. Whilst utilizing the best lodgings in the most unique places.

• Value
We’re not in the business of making money and provide you nothing. Our treks aren’t expensive, they represent excellent value for money and for those seeking to maximize their time, there is no better way.

Our Expectations
It may come as a surprise, but the reality is that it is a two-way street (or trail), you are ultimately responsible for the nature of the experience that you have with us. And not only that, but you also have an influence on the experience of others’ in your small group.

• Attitude
This is your vacation, and the attitude that you bring will set the tone for your experience. We get that at times it’s difficult (we plan to challenge you) and we get that at times it’s a bit uncomfortable (this is not a cruise trip). All we ask you to keep an open mind, a big smile on your face and readiness for the unexpected.

• Physical preparedness
Our treks are designed for everyday people. You definitely don’t have to be an athlete, but to be fair for yourself and your group members, you do need to be ready. Worried about it? Do not stress it, our team is 100% dedicated to helping you pick the right trek, bring the right gear and be physically and mentally prepared.

• Know who’s in charge
