HAR KI DUN

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.

We have made a change in the traditional Har-ki-Dun itinerary by adding another stage which takes you to the high altitude Jaundhar Bamak (glacier). This will add a contrasting element of high altitude scenery to the trek as we cross the 4000m mark. We get close views of a big glacier, walk on moraine and scree and get very close to the famous and towering Swargarohini peaks. If you are willing to do more than just touch Har-ki-Dun and head back, then Har-ki-Dun with Jaundhar glacier is a complete trek having many shades of mountain landscape and culture which are sure to impress even veteran trekkers. For people who love to see flowers there is a small stage possible on the day we leave for Seema from 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.

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 Seema, 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 Seema we hike up to Har-ki-Dun 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. In the last stage of the trek we walk back to Seema and then to Taluka to finish what is surely going to be a memorable trek.
