ITINERARY

This trip will start from the Dehradun railway station. It will be a pick up in the morning at sharp 7 AM. It will be a drive to Sankri through Mussoorie where you will be able to find several rivers and the famous Yamuna river.

On the driveway, you will also be able to find some astonishing pine forest. Since we will drive through Musourrie, you can also get a view of the Tons Rivers. Moving through the confluence of Ruinsara and Supin will take your breath away. When you reach Sankri, the mesmerizing scenic view of the hamlet will itself prepare the trekkers to go on for the trek. This is all for the first day of Har Ki Dun, as we will make an overnight stay at Sankri.

On your way you might cross one or two streams. It will take an hour to reach Taluka. This is a tiny village that has two government guest houses and very few shops. The stony path starts from here.

You will be able to get the cedar fragrance while you're passing Taluka. However, during the winters, this road can be especially very dangerous for the vehicles. Since streams cross through the road, sometimes you are required to walk the entire stretch for 8 km.

After walking for a few hours, you will find the village Gangadhar on your left. You might come across the yellow throated marten in this area. The trek continues and within a few hours we will reach Pauni Garaat - which is the secluded campsite.

The depression route creates a complete balance between leisure walk and steep claims. This is a cradled fashion valley located in the majestic Himalayas. The primary trail is the steepest section which will take 30 to 40 minutes to cover. The entire landscape surrounding Osler is a completely terraced form and the colours differ in every season.

From here, the trail will rise higher and you have to cross a few fields. It will also cross the Temple below the trail which will fall on your right. The journey will be short but will offer you the opportunity to prepare for the journey on the next. The fantastic campsite will give you the opportunity to enjoy the campsite of Kalkatidhar.

This is the final day that we all were waiting for. So, from today, our trek to Kalkatiyadhaar will start where we will be able to find out some of the most astounding views of the places on our journey. You can observe the tall pine trees swaying with wind, which is lovely to observe.

This is a long trek and today we will visit Marintal Tal and Har ki Dun. After trekking for a few kilometers, you can encounter the waterfall. The roaring waterfall is the start of the scenic beauty.

On the left, you can view the snow covered Hata peak. The Himalayan Birch trees hold a mythological importance. These barks were like papers were used for writing religious scriptures.

Moving ahead, you can get the view of Swargarohini peak and Jaundhar glacier. Take time to soak in the serenity and beauty of the place. From here we will continue our walk to the small lake Marinda tal. It is a small trek of 2 to 3 kms from Har ki Dun.

Even when you might find a difference in the view while trekking downhill, it was still the same while we moved up. Now, it will take less time compared to the time we started and will become enjoyable.
