ABOUT THE TREK

At GIO we simply love this trek!! If you have seen the movie ‘Lord of the Rings’ and appreciated the landscape and always wanted to be there, then this is your opportunity. You don’t need to spend pot loads and go all the way to New Zealand, the trek to Har-ki-Dun will provide you with all the sights you are looking for and more! There are endless lush green meadows, wild alpine flower gardens, scraggy mountains, towering snow-capped peaks, glaciers and gushing streams & waterfalls that seem to spring from nowhere. To top it all it this valley has a very interesting, unique, old and time tested culture very different to any other mountain or plains region. Our guides ensure that we get a very up close experience of this culture as this is one of the highlights of this trek.

This trail is situated in the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary & National Park in Garhwal Himalayas. We drive from Dehradun to a beautiful village called Sankri where we spend the first night and from here a short 40 mins drive the next day gets us to Taluka, a small market place which is our starting point. From here we trek up to a place called Gangaad, walking through beautiful forests and interesting villages. We meet local people and get to appreciate the local architecture and way of life as we move up the trail. From Gangaad we hike up to Har-ki-Dun base camp the next day and land ourselves in a complete paradise. Camping on the meadows here is sheer pleasure. We do a day’s excursion from here to Jaundhar glacier reaching up to a height of around 4300m to get fantastically close to the base of Swargarohini peaks. High altitude terrain here is quite interesting. For people who love to see flowers there is a small stage possible on the day when we are at Har-ki-Dun to a place called Haata. The meadows here are almost fully carpeted with alpine flowers and make a very pleasing sight. Contrary to the popular belief it’s not a very easy trek and has long walks on almost all days and is suitable for seasoned trekkers as well as fit beginners. In the last stage of the trek we walk back to Gangaad and then to Taluka to finish what is surely going to be a memorable trek.
