Trekkers think when it comes to great treks in summer you can’t beat treks like Rupin Pass or Buran Ghati. And when we talk about Har-Ki-Dun, they think it is a poor cousin. It’s not true at all. Har Ki Dun has to be one of the most adventurus treks in our country. The mountains of Garhwal come with dramatic formations and diverse geographic regions. Streams of crystal-clear rivers formed by the melting of glaciers, lush green meadows, hamlets, pine forests and rugged terrain form the varied topography of this region. But it is perhaps the mythological aspect of the Har-Ki-Dun trek that makes this onerous journey more special. Owing to its isolation, this area is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. It would be a heavenly experience to trek along the “Valley of Gods”, and follow the trail once beaten by Pandavas on their way to the heavens via Swargarohini, the mountain that dominates the Har-Ki-Dun valley.This catchment area is a major source of Yamuna through its largest tributary Tons river. To note, Har Ki Dun and Ruinsara Nallah from meandering Tamosa river, near Osla village. Tamosa flowing beside Taluka and below the village, Sankri unites with Supin near Jakhol. Supin and Rupin combined at Netwar form the Tons river.
Best Time to Visit: Whole is the best to visit Har Ki Dun. But, the Best time to visit Har-Ki-Dun is in summers (April-June) and winters (October-December). If you wanna enjoy the snow in Har-Ki-Dun. You should come har ki dun in January to March.
Day 1: Reach at Sankri (2,424m.); 190 Km drive from Dehradun
Day 2: Drive from Sankri to Taluka (2,424m.). Trek from Taluka to Puani Garaat (2,523m.)
Day 3: Puani Garaat (2,523m.) to Kalkatiyadhaar (2,729m. appx)
Day 4: Kalkatiyadhaar (2,729m.) to Har-Ki-dun (3,586m.) and back to Kalkatiyadhaar
The trek from Kalkatiyadhaar to Har-ki-Dun is 5 Km where you’d gain an elevation of 857m. On your right, you come across the pastures of Dev Thach, just where the two rivers meet. From this point, the valley bifurcates into two, with Har-Ki-Dun on the left and Ruinsara Taal, Bali Pass on the right. On your way, you could now have a glance at the peak of Har-Ki-Dun and Hata Peak. The grasslands and pine forests would give way to a small waterfall, and from here, a steep climbing for minutes would lead you to level land, with patches of snow becoming more and more prominent all along your path. Some more climbing would take you to a forest stretch with a gradual incline. Once you reach Har-Ki-Dun after crossing a wooden bridge, you’d see the valley dividing into two by a rivulet. The valley towards your left is going to Maninda Taal and Borasu Pass and the other; to Jaundar Glacier. This would include the proximate views of Swargarohini peaks and Jaundar Glacier. After spending some time at Har Ki Dun, we will return to Kalkatiyadhaar camp.

Of course, this is a non-negotiable. Safety is embedded in our business and it’s something that we take very seriously in all our treks. It’s the primary reason we’re very popular in just a year.
• Personalized Service, Care, and Attention to Detail
For some organizations, this is, surprisingly, negotiable. But it isn’t for us. After safety, if we can do one thing right, every time, it’s to ensure that we sweat the small things.
• The Best Guides
If you are already trekking with us, then you’d be forgiven for thinking our guides are superhuman. It doesn’t mean feat to entertain, cook, guide and facilitate, but for our guides, they handle it with grace and all the while the attention is on you.
• The Best Itineraries
It takes a lot of refinement to make a perfect trek, from dawn to dusk there are a LOT of moving part and potential for things to go awry. From last one year, we’ve balanced on the tight rope of offering the right amount of activity, flexibility and trek time. Whilst utilizing the best lodgings in the most unique places.
We’re not in the business of making money and provide you nothing. Our treks aren’t expensive, they represent excellent value for money and for those seeking to maximize their time, there is no better way.
It may come as a surprise, but the reality is that it is a two-way street (or trail), you are ultimately responsible for the nature of the experience that you have with us. And not only that, but you also have an influence on the experience of others’ in your small group.
This is your vacation, and the attitude that you bring will set the tone for your experience. We get that at times it’s difficult (we plan to challenge you) and we get that at times it’s a bit uncomfortable (this is not a cruise trip). All we ask you to keep an open mind, a big smile on your face and readiness for the unexpected.
• Physical preparedness
Our treks are designed for everyday people. You definitely don’t have to be an athlete, but to be fair for yourself and your group members, you do need to be ready. Worried about it? Do not stress it, our team is 100% dedicated to helping you pick the right trek, bring the right gear and be physically and mentally prepared.
• Know who’s in charge
As we’ve mentioned, you rightly expect when you join our trek to be in good, safe hands. For us to ensure the entire group’s safety, we suppose you, as our guest, to listen to your lead guide. They are the expert when it comes to decisions made on the trek.
