+ Travel Description

The beautiful valley of Har Ki Dun and the marvelous trek to the summit of Kedarkantha Peak needs no introduction. What if you could do both of these beautiful trek in a single attempt and journey cost? Well, we just made that possible..

The Mesmerizing Saru Tal

Joining these 2 gems of the Himalayas had been our dream and that's what motivated us to send a recee team explore the route, and they came back with a terrific surprise and a gift to the trekking community of our country

In an industry which is dominated by giants more effort is given towards documenting a route which can attract Corporate customers. However, our driving force is something different.. WE ARE TREKKERS OURSELVES..

The Kedarkantha - Har Ki Dun takes you through the vast meadows and rhododendron forest and some of the unique looking and holy lakes of Uttarakhand. It initially starts with climbing the Kedarkantha Peak and unlike the leisure version of the Kedarkantha trek, this trek itinerary means business and crosses the Kedarkantha Peak right on the second taking us to the meadows of Pustara. The views from the summit of Kedarkantha Peak is definitely breathtaking. The Swargaroni group of mountains constantly seeks attention. The surrounding panorama of other lesser known peaks and valleys does enough contributions to the marvelous views that this trek is known for. Once we cross the Kedarkantha Peak, we cross over and descend on the other side of valley.

The Serene Seema Tal

We have also joined the holy lake of Saru Tal with this trek route. Saru Tal is one unique looking high altitude lake above 4100 meters. Though small, the charm and feel around this wonderland is just indescribable. A grand panorama of the Yamunotri range and Borasu Valley is worth mentioning. The roughness of Swargaroni peak can be witnessed much closely which gives us the answer as to why this peak is considered one of the difficult ones to climb. Black Peak and Bandarpoonch on the other hand rises high through the clouds at a distance. Other lesser known peaks nearby are very picturesque.

The Har Ki Dun Valley

We then descend down to the Borasu village of Dhatmir hereby meeting the Ha Ki Dun trek route. After crossing the Har Ki Dun gad, we then meet the proper trek route going towards the village of Osla and further to the platue of Har Ki Dun. The cultural density and uniqueness of this Valley is perhaps one of the most valued reward of this trek. A good energetic team can further explore the Jaundhar Glacier and Maninda lake as well. We then return to Taluka from where we board our cab to head towards Dehradoon, thus bringing an end to a beautiful trek. Next time you venture in this region, try the challenging Treks like Borasu Pass, Dhumdar Kandi Pass, Bali Pass, etc.
