    Destination

    Devban, a little-known village tucked away in a secluded corner of Uttarakhand, is not the most popular choice for trekkers. This allows you to explore the real beauty of the lower Himalayan mountains, the Kanasar range, at a slower pace and an authentic experience. Far away from the crowds at Dehradun, the oak and pine forests and thorny shrubs of the Undawa forests near Devban are the highlight of this trek. These forests, painted pure white with snow as far as the eye can see, attract chirping alpine birds and harmless mountain wildlife.
