Har ki Doon / Valley of God is a cradle-shaped valley in the Garhwal region of the Himalaya . The valley is with snow from October to March and one would hardly find anything other than alpine vegetation growing in this region.
Harkidun trek Walking through beautiful alpine meadows, ridges, glacier basins and dense coniferous forests, we enter high alititude villages called Osla where you can seize an opportunity to experience a traditional lifestyle of villager and
valley has a very interesting culture, very different from any other region around in India Our guides ensure that we get a very up close experience of this culture as this is one of the highlights of this trek.
We have made a change in the traditional Har-ki-Dun itinerary by adding another stage which takes you to Hata Valley (3850m). This will add a contrasting element of high altitude scenery to the trek.
For people who love to see flowers there is a small stage possible on the day we explore Hata Valley. The meadows here are almost fully carpeted with alpine flowers and make a very pleasing sight. Contrary to the popular belief Har Ki Dun trek is not a very easy trek and has long walks on almost all days and is suitable for seasoned trekkers as well as fit beginners.
This trail is situated in the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary & National Park in Garhwal Himalayas. The next day we trek to KalkatiDhar and camp there for the night. From KalkattiDhar we hike up to Har-ki-Dun and land ourselves in a complete paradise. Har Ki Dun gives an opportunity to meet local people and get to appreciate the local architecture, we explore the region and trek back to the base camp of Kalkatidhar and then the next day to Taluka to finish what is surely going to be a memorable trek.
