  • Trip introduction

    The Har Ki Dun trail is one of the most gorgeous treks in the region. It winds upwards gently, taking you through dense pine forests, with greenery all around and distant mountain peaks that glitter in the snow.

    During the winter, snow covers the landscape around, creating an icy paradise. This trek leads upwards and has challenging steep gradients in some sections, but is suitable for beginners as well as experienced trekkers looking for a snow trek.

    Destination

    Located at 11,600 feet, at the base of Fateh Parvat, Har ki dun is a paradise for bird-watchers and nature lovers alike. There are spectacular views all around, and you’ll be able to see the peaks of Swargarohini and Bandar Poonch while you trek. From Jaundhar Glacier, you'll be as well as Jaundhar Glacier while you trek. The trek also offers a glimpse of the simple Garhwali lifestyle.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek through fragrant pine trees loaded with snow.
    • Camp at serene locations by river streams.
    • Witness the grandeur of the Himalayan ranges.
