Har Ki Dun Trek - 7 Days

Why You Should Do Har Ki Dun Trek?

One of the most gorgeous among Uttarakhand trekking destinations, Har Ki Dun trek in the Garhwal Himalayas. The Valley is surrounded by dense Pine forests of and offers views of glittering mountain peaks. The area is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. The trek is a favorite in summers and post-monsoon owing to the vibrant greens patched with orchids, rhododendrons, and other blossoms. No other trek is so steeped in mythology to justify the title of “Valley of Gods”. Follow the trail of Pandavas who took the very same route to ascend to heaven via Swargarohini, the mountain that dominates the Har Ki Dun valley. The mountain views you get on this trek are unique. This is the only valley from where you can see Swargarohini – I, II, III, Bandarpoonch and Blackpeak, all together. You can also see the Ruinsara peaks from here. The peak time of the year for this trek is not winter after snowfall but in summer frequented by rain. Proceeding through green foliages dripping with pearls of rain is a beautiful experience but trekkers must be well equipped for it.
