  • Trip introduction

    On this 7-day trek to Har Ki Dun, you'll spend a week exploring trails and routes in the Govind Pashu Vihar National Park, hiking past the gushing Har Ki Dun river stream, through mixed alpine forests and through charming hillside villages like Datmir and Osla. With views of towering mountains rising on either side, you'll trek deeper into the valley, spending the night in tents pitched at scenic campsites, including a night spent at Camp Bagi on the banks of the Tons River. As you approach Har Ki Dun, you'll grab magnificent views of peaks in the higher Himalayas, including the massive, snow-capped Mt. Swargarohini.

    This 7-day adventure in the heart of Uttarakhand takes you over an easy trail with sections of moderately difficult climbing, making it perfect for first time trekkers and well as experienced trekkers.

    Destination

    Har Ki Dun, literally meaning the 'valley of Gods', is a curved valley with towering mountains of the Garhwal Himalayas on either side. At an elevation of 11,480 feet in Uttarakhand, the valley is located amidst the protected forests of the Govind Pashu Vihar National Park. Trekkers to higher destinations in the national park like the Borasu Pass or Bali Pass also make their way through the valley. Other popular destinations in the valley also include the Marinda Tal, the Ruinsara Tal and the Jaundhar Glacier. During the winter months from November to March, the valley sees fresh snowfall almost every week, replacing green mountain slopes with pristine, white snow fields.
