A quick drive for 30 - 45 minutes from Dehradun to Koti village, which lies in the periphery of Dehradun. Here we will set out on our trek towards the splendid Cloud’s end point in Mussoorie. Entralling and gripping with an edge of steepness in some patches, this hike will surely be hunky dory! After hiking for 3- 4 hours we reach the spectacularly situated temple of Bhadraj. Here we will take a pit stop and have lunch. From here we hike for another couple of hours and walk through picturesque terrace fields to reach the village just below clouds end. Board the awaiting vehicles and be driven to an amazing campsite by a meandering stream, inside the Binog sanctuary near the Dhobighat area (30 – 40 mins) in Mussoorie. On arrival we check into the tents/rooms and sponge up in the spectacular beauty around the campsite. Overnight in the tents/rooms.
The trek ignition roars up at Binog wildlife sanctuary from our campsite and initially hike along the wandering waters. The hike to reach Cloud’s end is essentially jungly and most ravishing. The next stepping stone of the hike we will be to climb up to Binog Tibba top, to visit the temple of Jwala Devi. We get great views all around from here and also enjoy our picnic lunch. From here back to the campsite, be prepped up to bookmark the panoramic view. The hike is easy going and downhill. This whole trek will take us about 5- 7 hours with pit stops & lunch break. After evening tea we start our drive towards Dehradun. This will take 1.5 hrs. The trip ends here.
All in all, you will have no desire to return from the world you are leaving to the world you will see drizzling past the window!
