Har Ki Doon Trek - Trekking in Uttarakhand


Har Ki Doon Trek - An Amphitheatre of Snow-Capped Himalayan Mountains

Overview

Har Ki Dun is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Western Himalayas. It is nestled in the middle of a cradle-shaped vale below the Har Ki Dun peak. A delight for trekkers, both in summer and winter, this valley is accessible through Govind National Park – known for its rich variety of flora and fauna. The trail through alpine meadows, moraine ridges, glacier basins, pine forests and ancient villages, gives you spectacular valley views and a chance to experience the wonderful slow-paced local lifestyle.
This is a valley trek where you trek along the Thamsa River to Har Ki Dun valley. Since the trekking trail isn’t treaded upon too often, birds and animals thrive in this region. One can spot langoor families near Puani Garaat. Black bears, wild boars and Barasingha are few of the other animals you can spot if you’re lucky. Golden eagles and massive Himalayan griffins also live here. The colourful Himalayan monal, the state bird of Uttarakhand, thrives in the forests here.
