Har Ki Dun Trek is one of India’s oldest treks, and it promises some of the country’s most scenic scenery. This location, which is part of the Garhwal Himalayas, is a must-see for nature lovers and adventure seekers.

It is located closer to the Himachal Pradesh-Uttarakhand boundary. This trek is classified as easy to moderate, but even novice hikers will enjoy it. Sankri serves as the starting point for this trek, and along the way, you’ll pass through Taluka, Oslo, and Kalkatidhar, among other locations.

The Har Ki Dun valley, also known as the Valley of Gods, is located in Uttarakhand’s Garhwal district, in the western part of the state.

The Har ki Dun trek helps explorers to see and experience the beauty of the Himalayan region, which has been a popular retreat for travellers from all over the world for centuries.

Itinerary

Day 1Dehradun to Sankri

From Dehradun, we’ll fly to Sankri via Mussoorie. We’ll stop for lunch on the way. This is a fun drive that begins with the Yamuna River and ends with the magnificent Tons River. Today’s drive has several particularly lovely pine forest parts. We’ll check into the picturesque Campsite when we arrive in Sankri. We’ll take an evening walk through Sankri to re-energize our muscles for the forthcoming trek. Sankri will be your home for the night.

Day 2Sankri to Purani Garaat via Taluka

We start the day with a fast, scenic, and exciting drive to Taluka, the starting point of our trek. The hiking today takes you across a beautiful mixed forest and along the Supin River. The gradient is mostly gentle, with a few steep sections tossed in for good measure. This location has a long and distinct culture that has fortunately been preserved. You’ll have an up-close and personal look at it today. The gradient is gentle for the most part, with a few steep sections mixed in for good measure. You’ll spend the night in Purani Garaat.

Day 3Purani Ghat to Kalkatiyadhaar

A hiking to Osala Village begins the day. To do so, we’d just walk along the Supin River until we approached Osala, crossing the bridge ahead of us. It’s a remote hamlet at an altitude of 8.5K feet above sea level. We’ll pause here for a moment before continuing. Since it is reasonably flat, the walk from here is a lot of fun. It might be a little steep for a bit, but the stunning view that awaits you can make up for it. We’ll cross two lakes in a 30-minute walk. The second is connected to the first by a wooden bridge. After passing the bridge and traversing around the mountain curve, we’ll be approaching a series of meadows in the front. From here, we’ll embark on a 90-minute trek across mountain twists, agricultural lands, and large fields of boulders and knolls. A temporary wooden bridge is located ahead, with the Supin valley visible above it. The climb will become increasingly challenging from here, despite the beautiful scenery. Our next stop will be in Kalkatiyadhaar, at an elevation of 8,956 feet. You’ll spend the night in Kalkatiyadhaar.

Day 4Kalkatiyadhaar to Har ki Dun

Today, in contrast to other days, you will start sooner. Prepare to be wowed once more, as captivating as the views have been up to this stage. In the glacier basin, the track will connect to moraines and alpine meadows. Tall pine trees will welcome you at every action you take. The track is a mix of steep and mild ascents before you enter the Har Ki Dun valley. If you ascend higher, you’ll see snow fields and frozen waterfalls. These fields are covered with snow throughout the winter. In a single look, a valley is a heavenly spot that exudes immense elegance. Swargarohini, Hata Mountain, Black Top, and other huge peaks provide stunning views.

Day 5Explore the Har Ki Dun campsite & return to kalkatiyadhaar

After exploring the valley and making lifetime memories, we return to our last campsite at Kalkattiyadhar. In the tents at Kalkatiyadhaar, you’ll spend the night.

Day 6Back to Purani Garaat from Kalkatiyadhaar

From now on, the trek will just be a return ride. Today, we’ll retrace our steps back to Pauni Garaat via Oslo village. Here’s another chance to relive the joyous moments of the villagers. Say your goodbyes to them as well as the beautiful scenery that surrounds you. Continue in the same direction as before to enter the Pauni Garaat campsite. Take advantage of the mountains’ final few hours of nightlife.

Day 7Purani Garaat to Sankri

A 5-hour trek to Taluka starts this morning, ascending the familiar path and stopping at familiar rest stops. The car is parked at the end of the gravel road, waiting to be driven back to base camp. Keep an eye out for the descending strategy. Although climbing down is less tiring, putting so much pressure on your soles with big steps is not a good idea. Sankri will arrive for tea at the scheduled time.

Day 8Sankri to Dehradun

The journey comes to an end with a 10-hour drive from Sankri to Dehradun. On the road, we’ll rest for breakfast and lunch. We will reach Dehradun at around 6pm
