About Har Ki Dun Trek:
Har Ki Dun valley, situated at the western flank of Garhwal in the Uttarkashi district is very
popular to the trekkers as well as the climbers. It is a lovely walk to the Har Ki Dun valley with
fascinating views of Jaundar (Jamdar) glacier and surrounding Swargarohini group of peaks. Har
Ki Dun catchment area is a major source of Yamuna River System and a main source of the largest
tributary of Yamuna, the Tons river. Har Ki Dun and Ruinsara Nallah form the beautiful Tamosa
river near Osla. Tamosa flowing beside Taluka and below Sankri merges with Supin river near
Jakhol. Rupin and Supin combined together at Netwar forms the Tons river. This spectacular
glacier-carved valley is an amphitheater ringed up by high spurs of rocky Himalayan range.
Summer and monsoon bring life to this National park area and remains snow covered in winter.
Accessible for a longer duration of the year and Tea-Houses at Taluka, Seema and Har Ki Dun are
compelling factors for many beginners to explore this route. The views of Banderpunch and
Swargarohini group, Black peak (Kalanag) are captivating. This trail offers the scope to familiarise
with interior villages of Himalaya, its people and culture. Fresh snow in winter is another
attraction.
Access to Snakri (The trek base): Depending upon the trek members we can arrange a
pickup and drop either from Dehradun to Sankri and back. This will be shared by the team
members upon agreement and is approximately 6000 Rs one side and is divided by the number
of trekkers using the car. One such car can accommodate 6 to 8 people.
1) There are 2/3 privately operated buses from Dehradun (near DDN railway station on Gandhi
road) to Sankri. The 200 Km journey will take around 10/12 hours. The buses start at 5:30/6/7
am.
2) While returning from Sankri take the morning bus to Dehradun/Vikasnagar and reach by 7 pm.
