The trip will start from Dehradun Railway Station with a morning pick up at 7.00 AM. We will drive to Sankri, via Mussoorie, alongside the Yamuna and Tons rivers. The drive also passes by beautiful pine forests. On reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek that lies ahead and overnight stay at Sankri.
After breakfast, a short drive to Taluka village will take us to the beginning of our 15 km trek through the forest trails of Gangaad. At first, the trek descends, takes a left turn to let us walk alongside the river Rupin and then loves upwards through an enticing forest of Chestnt, Walnut and Willow trees. Our destination, Osla village is at an altitude of 2650 m and houses an old temple of Duryodhan from Mahabharata. Overnight stay in tents.
After breakfast, we will head out on the 12 km trek through the thick forests of Govind National Park. The Har Ki Dunvalley route will be a refreshing balance between steep climbs and leisure level walks. The route, often used by villagers to lead their cattle into grazing pastures, will embark us on an interesting journey through forests which will give us ample opportunities to spot birds and unique flowers. A 45-minute walk, passing by small streams and a temple, the first meadows will welcome you with open arms and playful streams. Overnight stay in tents at Har Ki Doon, altitude of 3566 m.
The fourth day is the most exciting part of the Har Ki Dun trek as after breakfast, we will continue on a trek to Juandhar glaciers, at an altitude of 4300 m dotted with white snow and grass patches. A complete contrast to the grass you had been trekking on till now, Juandhar glaciers will add morains, scree, glaciers and the stunning Swargarohini peaks to your trip and your photo album! This part of the trek will require efforts as it is a long walk with uneven scree and moraine terrain but it is totally worth it. Return to Har Ki Dun the same day and overnight stay in tents.
This day will mark our return journey to Osla village with scenic landscapes keeping us company. The downhill trek is fun and easy, covers 11 km and takes about 3-4 hours. Overnight stay in rest houses or tents.
From Osla village, an early morning trek will take us to Seema and then to Taluka. This trek back to Taluka will give us abundant opportunities to take a refreshing bath in tantalizing cool water of the many streams we cross or pass by. Overnight stay in hotel at Sankri.
