Upon reaching, one of our representatives will greet you and guide you to your room. Once you are settled and freshened up, we meet over for evening Tea and Snacks.

It's the best practice to wake up early in the morning in the mountains and start the trek as early as possible. The first day does take a little more time. Today after a wholesome breakfast, we board a cab and drive through one of the most thrilling drives in the region to reach Taluka. Mostly we arrange a 4X4 camper for this road as that's the best for this route. In about 45 minutes we reach Taluka, where we meet our mules-men. While our team loads the camping equipment on the mules and gets them ready, the trekking team advances and starts the trek to Chillurgad with our trek leader and guide. The trek follows the Supin river. The sound of the river is just so exciting. So is walking through the forest under tall conifers often crossing the river over bridges.

Our trail today is quite a simple one and is also used by the villagers. It gets lively as well when you keep interacting with passing locals and shop owners. We reach our campsite in Chilludgad after crossing the village of Gangaad. This campsite is just beneath the village of Puani and beside the Supin river. We can hear the gush of it throughout. It's a different kind of music.

The trek starts with a gentle climb to Seema which is about 2 kilometres. From Seema, we cross the Har Ki Dun river over the suspension bridge and then take on the steep switchbacks for about a kilometre after which the trek route eases out. It passes through farmlands and then again climbs steeply to Kalkatidhar, passing by Halche which offers an awesome view of Bandarpoonch twins, Kalanag, Ruinsara, White Needle peaks, etc. From Kalkatidhar, the trek to our campsite of Boslo is an easy walk and most of it is descending.

Activity: Trek Day
Overnight In: Boslo (3150m )
Accommodation: Tents
Meals Included: All Meals

Today is the best day for us and we stay as relaxed and in leisure as possible. However, we do need to start early, as soon as possible in the morning. We will be given packed lunch for today as we venture out to explore as much as possible.

Today there are no steep climbs. However, the altitude starts to show its effect and we naturally slow down a bit. The trail passes by a couple of lovely waterfalls and in about an hour and a half, we reach Har Ki Dun. The entire trek is beautiful and we take enough breaks to experience all of it, as much as possible. As we keep climbing up, the river gets narrower and gives an extreme joy to watch it amidst the forest of conifers, rhododendrons, and lots of colourful, small wildflowers. Many species of bird could be seen on this trail as it gets quieter. We walk by not disturbing the harmony and tranquillity of the place.

As we near Har Ki Dun, the giant peak of Har Ki Dun and Hata peak greet us. It is probably one of the most beautiful places in the Himalayas. The stream of Maninda with the view of Har Ki Dun Peak and Hata Peak in the background is just one of the perfect frames in the mountains. Little beyond, the vast field of the Swargarohini valley is visible. Maninda Tal route is even better and it takes overall about 3 hours to reach Maninda Tal and be back to Har Ki Dun.

After coming back from the Maninda Tal, we have lunch and estimate if we have enough time to visit Jaundhar Glacier as well. Typically it takes about 5 hours from Kalkati Dhar to reach HarkiDun, visit Maninda Tal, and be back to HarKiDun again. To return to Kalkatidhar from HarKiDun, it takes about an hour. Hence starting our day early is very important today.

By the time we reach Har Ki Dun back from Maninda Tal, it's time to have lunch. After lunch, we go towards the Jaundhar side and reach the base of Swagarohini peaks. We cant reach Jaundhar offcourse, but we can take ourselves to a beautiful place beneath the Swargarohini peaks. We need to watch the weather as well and return safely to Boslo by the time it's 2 PM.

Har Ki Dun Trek - - Why Its A Must-Do

  • Har Ki Dun is one of the best treks in the Himalayas. Its a very old trek route and owing to its beauty, it still continues to be one of the popular treks
  • The phrase Har Ki Dun translates to the Land Of Lord Shiva - God of Gods, as per the Hindu beliefs. As the legend goes, on a pious day, you can hear prayer bells ringing in this valley.
  • Har Ki Dun is a valley trek and is evergreen. It can be done anytime and offers a very engaging experience as it has lots of elements of Himalayas. Forest, Meadows, Multiple Streams, Multiple Waterfalls, Butterflies, Colourful Flowers, Wild Animals, Lakes, over 7 tall Snow Capped Peaks, Glaciers, Unique temples, rituals and beliefs, oldest villages and unique architecture and carpentry... wow.. there are so many elements of this trek!
  • The campsite of Har Ki Dun is very very picturesque as the giant Har Ki Dun peak and Hata Peak stands tall right in front. The tranquil streams of Maninda Gad and Hata Gad flow down silently right in the middle of the campsite, surrounded by coniferous trees and shorter mountains.
  • Maninda Tal and the beauty of its surrounding valley have always surprised the trekkers with its unbelievable beauty and peaceful ambience. The route goes on to one of the difficult Borasu Pass in Uttrakhand to cross over to Zupica Glacier and then onwards to Chitkul.
  • The trek towards the Jaundhar Glacier takes you to the bottom of the Swargarohinin massif which hosts 6 peaks, 4 of which are very prominent and can be seen right from Sankri. The beauty and feeling one goes through while on this trek is just indescribable. The vast meadow beneath the snow-capped peaks of the Swargarohinis and the Jaundhar Gad melting down from the Jaundhar glacier, silently curving its way to meet the Har Ki Dun river...  It is just amazing
  • The campsite of Kalkati Dhar should not be missed as one of the key highlights of this trek. Its a small meadow, right in the middle of the forest with the giant Har Ki Dun and Hata peak constantly hovering over the campsite.

Customized Private Group For Har Ki Dun Trek

Trekking is a very personal activity and is perhaps one of the very few activities that give you enough time to indulge with yourself or your beloved people, group of special friends, or close family members. It helps you transform personal bonds to the next level as it brings out everyone's best and truest self. Trekking is most enjoyed when it is done in a small private group, personalized to serve your specific needs. The Himalayas are best experienced when there is silence and solitude around and when you are surrounded only by your best people. Your trek is most enjoyable when all the pain of arranging a smooth trek is taken care of by us, and you focus just on your trek and yourself. Most importantly, a small private trekking group is very flexible, personalized and more enjoyable, is the safest and follows the principles of Sustainable and Responsible Tourism. We specialize in and are more popular for arranging Small Customized Private Trekking Groups to the Himalayas. Enquire For Customized Private Trek
