Har ki Dun, which means Valley of Gods, is situated deep inside Govind Wildlife Sanctuary in North-Western Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, neighboring Himachal Pradesh in the North. Rich in flora and fauna, the trails are quite often covered in different shades of orchids and other wild flowers. In 1937, Doon school master Jack Gibson along with Tenzing Norgay and his colleague John Martyn climbed Bandarpunch. Jack Gibson made several expeditions in the region and trained young Indian mountaineers. This made the flora, fauna and Garhwali culture of Har ki Dun region known to the outside world.0

The path winds up alongside the Supin river from Netwar village. The trek is along the Supin river through the scenic Garhwali villages of Taluka, Gangad and Osla. Har ki dun has numerous camping places, one Forest Guest House & one Garhwal Mandal guest house (GMVN). Camping in the valley is prohibited since a few years. The Har Ki Dun trek starts with a drive from Sanrki to Taluka, from where we trek to the Har Ki Dun valley, situated approximately 25 KM further ahead of Taluka, and thus the entire trek is approx 50 KM with the addition of 2.5 KM one way to the Marinda Lake.

From Har ki Dun one can see the entire North Face of Swargarohini I (6,252 m) peak. This face drops to about 2,000 m in less than 2 km distance and is yet to be climbed. The legends associated with it say that Swargarohini is the path to heaven that was followed by Pandavas of the epic Mahabharata. Though, the same story is also associated with the Swargarohini steps seen from Satopanth Lake, which lies ahead of Badrinath.

The beautiful Marinda Tal formed by a huge boulder obstructing the river, can be trekked in an hour from Har Ki Dun or we can explore the Hata Valley to the north of Har ki Dun. It will be a long trek, but the hike to Jaundhar Glacier view point that takes us to the Swargarohini Base is also feasible.

There are many passes in this region and a few of them cross over into Kinnaur, Himachal, such as Rupin Pass & Borasu Pass, other than those leading towards Yamunotri & Gangotri, such as Bali Pass, Fachu Kandi (both of these go to Yamunotri valley) & Dhumdhar Kandi, which goes to Gangotri valley.

How difficult is Har Ki Dun trek?

  • Har Ki Dun is an easy trek with moderate altitude.
  • The distance is generally 8-10 KM on each of the trekking days with gradual altitude gain. It is only from Seema to Osla, a very short stretch of half KM, with steep ascent.
  • It can be done by families including children generally above 7-8 years in age and old age people who don't have any chronic health issues and are able to walk long distances.

How is the weather of Har Ki Dun?

  • In summer months of May & June the weather is very pleasant throughout the trek, with warm days, perfect to enjoy basking in the sun. Evenings can be cold and will require you to use insualted clothing layer. There can be some rainy days, or spells of rains in the afternoon and early evening hours, thus waterproof layer needs to be carried too.
  • Weather is pleasant in September and begins to get colder as October approaches and winters are around the corner. Expect early snowfall spells in late October or early November in Har Ki Dun valley, with gradually the snow taking over at lower altitudes of Osla village by November end, which marks the closure of trek until March.
  • The post winter months of March and April can be cold as the snow is still present at Har Ki Dun, which gradually reduces by mid April.

Important Details -

  • Last ATM : Mori is the last place you can avail ATM, but cash may not always be available - Thus withdraw cash in or before Purola.
  • Network Coverage : There is no other network coverage ahead of Mori apart from BSNL upto Sankri. The network stays congested and thus calls are very difficult to make. There is some low speed wifi availability in some hotels and guest houses.
  • Electricity : Sankri is the last village with decent electricity supply, which is not constant.
  • Equipment Shop : Sankri has a supply store for Trekking Gear but at a premium price. Recommended to carry all your equipment from your city. Some equipment can be rented as well in Dehradun.
  • Last Hospital : Basic Govt Hospitals in Mori and Barkot are the nearest for minor illnesses or injuries. For serious medical emergencies Mussoorie and Dehradun have the ideal medical facilities.

What are the top highlights of the trek?

  • The villages of Har Ki Dun such as Gangaad, Osla, Taluka, Datmir, apart from their surrounding natural beauty are known for their unique architecture and cultural heritage. Be sure to take time to spend in one of the villages.
  • Water bodies such as the Supin river flowing along the trail, a few waterfalls, with the first overlooking village Osla & consecutively two waterfalls along the trail & finally Marinda lake ahead of Har Ki Dun are a sight to behold.
  • Swargarohini & Hata Peaks are clearly visible from Har Ki Dun and pose magnificiently for those willing to capture the sight.

What are the rivers along the route to Sankri & Har ki Dun trek?

  • Yamuna during first and last day's drive.
  • Tons during first and last day's drive.

  • Way to Sankri - Har Ki Dun
    Way to Sankri; PC: Tania
    Day 1: Dehradun to Sankri drive

    We start the journey early from Dehradun and drive initially to the famous hill station of Mussoorie. After just over 100 km, we pass close to the temple of Lakhamandal. According to locals, Duryodhana of the epic Mahabharata conspired to burn the Lakshagriha house of the Pandavas in this area. Damta, Purola, Mori and Netwar are some of the other villages on the route. We follow the river Yamuna upstream. The river Kamal Ganga merges with Yamuna near Naugaon and accompanies us till Purola. Purola is the last big settlement on the route with a large market. So, it is recommended that the trekkers can buy anything they might have missed out by Purola itself. It also is the last village where most of the mobile networks work.

    The drive after Purola is through a beautiful forest of pine trees. In some distance, on top of a hill we can see the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya overlooking the valley. From near the village of Mori, the river Tons flows beside us till about Netwar. The fall in temperature can be felt from here. We officially enter Govind Pashu Vihar Wildlife Sanctuary after we cross a check post at Netwar. It can be considered the southern gateway to the sanctuary as most of the treks across the region are accessed from here onwards. The northern border of the sanctuary merges into Himachal Pradesh. Close to here, the rivers of Rupin and Supin merge to form Tons, which is the largest tributary of Yamuna and in fact larger than Yamuna itself, in terms of volume of flow. The peak of Kedarkantha can be seen from various points along the way from here.

    We reach Sankri by early evening. It is a small village with a central market lined with a few shops. The village has numerous apple orchards which are harvested starting from late summer. The market area is new compared to the old village area, a part of which is known as 'Saud'. The village also produces peach, apricots and potatoes. One can see the Swargarohini peak from here on a clear day. We rest at night in a guest house or in camps.

  • Day 2: Sankri to Puani Garat (2,500 m)

    Since, the journey is long, we start as early as we can in the morning. After breakfast we board an SUV and drive through a forest road. The drive is quite bumpy. The vehicle crosses one or two streams on the way. We reach Taluka in about an hour. It is a small village with a few shops and two Government guest houses. The trek commences from here on a stony path. The fragrance of cedar trees can be felt around Taluka. Sometimes during winters, or especially during periods with rather heavy spells of rain, the road to Taluka may be too dangerous for vehicles, as streams run across the road and thus one may be required to walk a stretch of around 8 km up to Taluka, albeit it is only occasional.

    We walk close to the river Supin gushing through rapids. Under the shade of walnut, pine and cedar trees, the walk is quite pleasant. In autumn we can often find walnuts lying around. One must avoid "bichchu ghas" which literally translates to 'scorpion grass'. A slight touch can give us stinging sensation which lasts for about twenty to thirty minutes. This herb is also cooked as a vegetable and eaten. Often the passing villagers greet us on the way. High up above on the true left, we get to see the village of Datmer. It is lined by series of step farms. The farms have the bright red colored Cholai growing from late monsoon to early autumn.

    The path crosses over a few streams which merge with Supin. After a few hours of walk the village of Gangad can be seen towards the left, across the river. It is possible to come across a yellow throated marten in the forests of this area. We can also find edible fruits of seabuckthorn. They are orange in color and grow in bunches. Also, known as 'leh berries', the juicy and sour fruits are a rich source of Vitamin C. We continue our trek and soon we reach the secluded campsite at Puani Garat.

  • Day 3: Puani Garat to Kalkatidhar (3,300 m)

    Today we start the day by heading up towards Osla village, which is located on a sloping spur about a hundred meters above the river Supin. The initial trail to Osla is the steepest section along the entire trek and can take 30-40 mins to cover. The landscape surrounding Osla is full of terraced farms. The colors of these lands differ in every season. The red farms of Cholai (Amaranth) look amazing and can be seen from late monsoon. This grain is a powerhouse with its rich nutritional values and a favorite among the locals. Apart from these Kidney beans in wide varieties are cultivated in the area. Osla is the last village on the route to Har ki Dun. From Osla the trail gradually rises higher and we cross a few fields, while the river can be seen far below. We come across a temple some distance below the trail towards the right. We pass through bushes of flowers like orchids, fleece flowers and sunflowers.
    The journey today is rather short, which gives the opportunity to acclimatize to the high altitude and prepare for the next days journey. We can take a breather basking in the sun at the beautiful campsite of Kalkatidhar. The ban to camp at Har Ki Dun has had a rather positive outlook to the trekking itinerary, as it allows for more comfort & at the same time preserves the natural beauty of Har Ki Dun.

  • Day 4: Kalkatidhar to Har ki Dun & Marinda Tal, return to Kalkatidhar

    The days trek can be considered to be rather long as we today visit Har Ki Dun and Marinda Tal, a small lake formation due to the obstructing boulder across the river stream, which lies 2 KM further ahead of Har Ki Dun. As we start the trek, at a short distance a hidden and roaring waterfall is encountered with a small tea shop beside the waterfall.

    The ascending path climbs high above the confluence of Supin river and the river from Ruinsara valley. From near this confluence, we get a view of the snow-clad peaks of Ruinsara valley including Black Peak, the highest peak in the region. While towards north we can see the Har Ki Dun valley far in the distance. We can even spot the Forest hut at Har ki Dun from this point. After traversing higher up along the true right of the river, we enter the final stretch which is inside a forest. The forest opens up into the main camping area of Har ki Dun, right beside the gurgling stream. This is a very panoramic spot in Har ki Dun located at the junction of two valleys, one originating from Jaundhar glacier and the other from beyond Hata glacier. Higher up towards the North we can spot the Forest Rest House, while the wood crafted GMVN guest house lies further up in the distance. The Har ki Dun peak stands tall right in front of us behind the Forest Rest House. Towards its left, Hata peak which is usually snow covered can be seen. The minor ridge to our right, lined with a few scattered Himalayan birch trees Bhojpatra separates us from the massive Har Ki Dun valley that goes up all the way to the base of Swargarohini Peak. The paper like bark of these trees was used in ancient times to write religious scriptures.

    The vast open meadows following the course of the Supin river can be explored. Further ahead of the meadows one can walk among the forests of Bhojpatra trees (Himalayan birch) or get a closer glimpse of the Jaundhar glacier and Swargarohini peak, for which we will have to head updwards the Har Ki Dun valley, towards the Swargaroini peak in the eastern direction.

    We can choose to relax and soak in the environment for some time or we can continue our trek to Marinda Tal, in the north, just 2-3 km away from Har ki Dun. The trail is gradually ascending here. It is a small lake formed by a huge boulder obstructing the river which flows down from the base of the Borasu Pass.

    After our short visit to Marinda Tal we make our return journey back to Kalkatidhar. We take the same route and it becomes much easier as its all downhill from here. We reach back by early evening and rest at the campsite.

  • Day 5: Kalkatidhar to Puani Garat(2,500 m)

    The journey back to Osla is an easy walk. On the route we come across a good view of the trail all the way to Osla and see the valley descend towards Taluka, around the curve of the ridge where the two streams comng from Har Ki Dun and Ruinsara respectively, converge. A little short of this intersection we can get a glimpse of a trail to our left marked by a sight of a bridge down over the stream. This trail goes to join the trail to Ruinsara lake and is rarely taken. After reaching Osla, one can roam about in the village, talk to locals and soak in the Garhwali culture. We continue our journey from here to our earlier campsite of Puani Garat where we can spend time basking in the sun.

  • Rainbow at Sankri - Har Ki Dun
    Rainbow at Sankri - September; PC: Abhishek Sohu
    Day 6: Puani Garat to Sankri

    Early in the morning, post breakfast we set out from this beautiful abode as we start trekking through the same trail we trekked along on Day 1, towards Taluka. Although the views seem different as the perspective changes signficantly trekking downhill. The walk takes lesser time than before and is enjoyable. We walk to the true left of the River Supin until we finally arrive at Taluka, from where a vehicle takes us back to Sankri. We retire for the day in camp alongside the river or in a guest house in Sankri.

  • Day 7: Sankri to Dehradun

    The trek to Har ki Dun concludes today as we leave Sankri. The drive upto Mori through the unique lesser touched regions is still amazing. The stretch right after crossing Mori town is still prettiest along the entire journey, albeit the new hydel project has put the fragile environs at increased risk in this area. Rafting and Kayaking which was earlier prevalent here, is no longer feasible. Regardless the beauty of the region remains to a significant degree. After crossing the towns and finally Kempty-Mussoorie, we reach Dehradun by late afternoon or early evening.

Trippychat 11 July 2019

Har ki Dun trek 07June-14June,2019 I would rate these guys at Himalaya Shelter 10/10! and I'm serious. Bachan Rana and his team (Jatin our guide, Harish our cook- rather Chef, RoshanLal guide 2 and Sanoj- the youngest guide apprentice of the group) have given our super diverse group of 15 trekkers an experience to remember. This was my first trek and even so, the other experienced trekkers in our group were all praise for the Himalaya Shelter team. My rating is based on: 1) Overall structure - really well organised under Bachan's leadership. The team was responsible and reliable on all days 2) Food- Good tasty hot Vegetarian food as NV doesn't digest too well at higher altitudes I heard, but we had a variety of egg dishes to make up a bit for the hardcore NVeggies. 3) Punctuality- Instructions on start time, rest time, end time, food timing was followed seamlessly and to the hilt by the team- no compromises whatsoever. Very refreshing for all. 4) Quality- Sturdy tents, good warm sleeping bags, clean loo tents, good attention to all trekkers, all issues sorted before they became complaints- my sleeping bag zipper got stuck and it was repaired the next day to my satisfaction, Hot fresh food with dessert as well every day, the overall quality of the Team Guide and assistants was very good 5) Safety - a safe environment esp. for the ladies, and the team that looked out for the group at all times. Will definitely choose Himalaya Shelter again on our next trip wherever it is in the Himalayas!

Swarna 11 July 2019

This was my first trek. We were a group of 25 and half the members are 10-12 year old kids. On the first day I was worry about kids but Mr. Rishab was leading the baccha party and they enjoyed his leadership a lot and Rishab bhayya became their favorite. The trek was very well organized under the leadership of Mr. Bacchan Rana. Their planning, punctuality a d hospitality is appreciable. They are very experienced, friendly and always present to help with smile. They were very humble in their approach and very caring towards tourists. The trek leader Bacchan was with the last one of the group and always encouraging and to ensure safety of the group. Talking about the kitchen crew, they served delicious, hot and varied dishes every time and the soup served in the evenings was just yum.... The trek equipment like tents and sleeping bags was neat and clean. The view at each point of the trek was mesmerizing which makes us to forget all the efforts put in to climb and the moments with a humorous group is unforgettable. A big thanks to the Himalayan Shelter team and to my friends for making my trip memorable. Will definitely recommend Himalayan Shelter for future treks.

Vinayak 11 July 2019

I visited to Har ki Dun from 22nd June to 28 June. Himalaya Shelter supported me in many ways. First, I appreciate the quality of the tents and homestays offered to us. Second, I appreciate the food management employed during our trip. They had delicious meals but can be improved. Third, they maintained time and fortunately because of their time management we could have clear skies in Har ki Dun valley. I was sick for a day and they have taken great care. My favourite is Nitin, who not only took care of me but also was with me during the trek and explained about flowers and rivers in that area. He always used to give information and is a talkative and a friendly person. Rishabh, on the other hand, respected our requests and took good decisions. Even the washrooms were well arranged and were clean. The vehicles were well arranged and took us on time. Himalaya Shelter has given me a great experience and I give them a 5 star. They even arranged for a 2 days bonfire. :) I further recommend Har Ki Dun with Himalaya Shelter.

Sanjay Kumar Gond 11 July 2019

I'm delighted! Recently, I underwent trekking to Har Ki Dun through Himalaya Shelter. Trekking was an awesome experience. Thanks Himalaya Shelter for wonderful arrangements. Guide: Rishab & Nitin were too awesome. They were too good and helped us in every possible way to make our Trekking to HKD a wonderful memories. Thank you guys! And yes, those food on the trek were delicious and healthy on those Himalayan altitude. ThumpsUp to Himalaya Shelter & its Team. I recommend any new solo or couple trekkers to try Himalayan Shelter. Simply, they are best in their business & professionalism.

Anwar 30 March 2019

Very fun trek the guide was very professional and everything was organized well. One of the best treks I have had for sure do not hesitate to book with himalaya shelter.

Kumar N (On Tripadvisor) 08 October 2018

I booked the har ki dun trek through himalaya shelter. Company's founder and our trek leader Mr. Bachan Rana was extremely helpful through out the trek. He taught us from how to cook in the mountains to how to pitch the tents. He was very strict about the hygiene and cleanliness. Since we were on a trek in the mountains, we were not expecting much variety of food but they provided us fruits, soup and whatnot on the trek. On the way to trek, he used to teach us about the local farming and flora and fauna. He took us to the local hidden villages in the mountains and helped us experience the local culture and tradition of pahadi people. He has an experience of 18+ years. If you want to get the actual feel of mountains and safety is your first priority, then Mr. Bachan is the person to contact.

Gunjan 25 June 2018

We contacted Bachan for Har Ki dun trek. As we were a couple, we didn't want to go in a group and wanted some privacy. Our itinerary kept on changing and Bachan very patiently catered and revised his package to our need every time. Finally we took the Dehradun to Dehradun 9 days/8 nights package. Himalaya shelter team who went with us were Surinder (the main person/guide and cook), Mukesh (the porter and assistant to Surinder) and Harish (whose khacchar carried our stuff). We couldn't have asked for a better team! These people were not only efficient at their work but were also lovely human beings. The food was excellent (thanks to Surinder) and we had to actually refuse few times as we were so over full. We took small hikes here and there around Har ki Dun and Mukesh was more than enthusiastic to accompany us anywhere. We had lovely conversations with them and they all are so full of life and laughter. I have a knee problem, so at times my pace became almost non existent, and the team was kind enough to give encouragement to rest and progress slowly. Me and my husband had an absolutely fantastic time in the trek. Thanks Himalaya Shelter for an unforgettable experience!! :)

Avinash M (On Tripadvisor) 15 January 2018

My wife and I undertook the HKD trek with Bachan on Sep 22, 2017. Sadly it was a wet start to the trek and we lost a day to bad weather. However it was here we realised how important a good guide can be. Bachan made it clear that we would not trek in wet weather when we thought it’s just a drizzle. Other groups who did carry on discovered to their misfortune that the roads were in terrible shape and when we encountered many of them returning back next day in terrible shape did we realise our good fortune in opting for a guide of the pedigree of Bachan. The entire crew puts client safety above all. They take utmost care to ensure you are in good spirits; be it the joy of hot tea / soup / noodles / pasta as soon as you reach camp or the ever changing menu over the week. Every person in his team - be it Madan or Jaya or any of the others - is good natured ensures you in good spirits when the going gets tough.. all in all a great experience for us and we would blindly recommend Bachan to anyone thinking of a trek..

Premila (On Tripadvisor) 04 December 2017

We did the Har Ki Dun trek with HIMALAYA SHELTER, we chose them after having read the reviews and recommendations in TRIP ADVISOR and also we do believe in supporting local businesses , so we contacted Himalaya Shelter and they were very accommodating as far as the dates and although we were just three of us they still obliged . It was the most amazing 6 nights /7 days we spent in the mountains .We were so happy and honoured to have the owner Mr Bachan as our guide ,who took care of us and saw that we experienced everything to make our trek very special and unforgetable. All the arrangements were par excellence, the the best local food,comfortable tents ,sleeping bags & blankets that kept us warm even in minus temperature. And staff Harish the chef who kept us well fed and Kailash who saw to all our needs . I would strongly recommend HIMALAYA SHELTER to anyone looking for a very personalized trek as their groups are small, and one experiences the true and warm hospitality of the Pahari people. After all trekking is not only about being in a hurry to reach a destiny its about soaking in the surrounding beauty, stopping to smell the flowers, and interacting with people. Thank you Mr. Bachan Rana for making it possible.
