Har ki Dun Trek
This is an easy trek in which you may occasionally encounter rare
Himalayan birds like the Paradise Fly Catcher, Fork Tail Fly Catcher and
Monal; it is indeed one of the most popular treks in Garhwal. The trail
passes through villages with traditional buildings and lush green
terraced mountain fields. You will witness villagers working in their
potato fields, herding their sheep in to the jungle, in their
traditional dresses, which is a rare and wonderful sight in our modern
age. This Valley is also known for its polyandrous family system- where
two or more than two brothers can have one common wife.
- Drive 275 kms from Rishikesh to Sankri/Saur through the Yamuna
and Tons valleys across the Yamuna bridge, Nainbagh, Nowgaon, Purola,
Jarmola (Jarmola is one of the biggest and most beautiful pine
forests in Asia), Mori and Netwar. Trek to a tiny market in Sankri,
a few wooden huts serve simple yet delicious food. Dinner and
overnight stay at the GMVN (Garhwal Mangal Vikas Nigam) rest house
or the Forest Department’s rest house or perhaps in tents.
We have to trek for 12 km nonstop today. So we offer you
breakfast and make each of you carry your own packed lunches so
that you can rest and catch a bite at your own convenience-
perhaps at one of the tiny waterfalls lining this route. You can
also appreciate the wild roses and irises, chestnuts, sycamore
and deodar trees and bamboos which line the trail. Hot dinner
and cozy tents will be waiting for you once you reach the camp,
a Km from the Taluka village.
- Another 12 km to cover today so we take in packed lunch again.
From Taluka the trail descends to the river valley and continues
through the forests on the left side of the valley. The river valley
continues winding through some fields as well as apple orchards
until it reaches Osla (2560m), we however do not divert at Osla but
continue till Seema. You could either opt for the steep climb of
Dhaatmeer village, which is a path with beautiful views, or just
trek along the Karmanasha stream. Both the routes meet at Gangaar
village. Dinner and overnight stay in tent.
- Har ki Dun is known for its vast valleys and huge waterfalls as
well as an excellent view of the mountains above and is present just
beyond the confluence of two beautiful alpine meadows. A trek of
roughly 11 km after fueling ourselves with breakfast and carrying
packed lunch will get us to our destination. The area is home to a
number of rare species of Himalayan birds and flowers, and is full
of birch and spruce. After the last steep climb of approximately
200m, you have the grassy field of Har-ki-Dun divided by the clear
and calm Karmanasha stream. The beautiful Swargarohini stands tall
overlooking this Valley of God. Dinner and overnight stay in tent. A
full moon would be an added bonus.
- It’s now time to head back but who says that you cannot enjoy
the downhill as much as the uphill? Just before we trek down, we
take a short climb of 2 km to Jaundhar glacier. Trekking back then
first to Har ki Dun and then to Seema, where dinner and camps await
- The walks now are a reverse of what we experienced while
climbing along the same way. For today it’s further down as from
Seema we gear ourselves with packed lunch and a full breakfast to
trek back to Taluka.
- Breakfast and trek back to Sankari, with packed lunch and you
can relive your stop at the tiny waterfalls and rivulets as you walk
down the same path. Walking down off course is easier so this time
you get to appreciate the beauty more with the loom of tiredness.
Dinner and overnight stay at Sankari await you for your last night
in the hills.
- Drive from Sankari to Rishikesh is the last leg of this trek and
we finish it well in time for you to head back to your homes.
