One of the most gorgeous among Uttarakhand’s trekking destinations, Har Ki Doon in the Garhwal Himalayas at. is a hanging valley famed for exquisite beauty. The trek route offers a variety of interesting features—forests rich in flora and fauna, a series of quaint villages on the cliffs, the delightful experience of camping by a sprightly mountain river, and vista of snow peaks. The trail is age old and steeped in legends. Some say, it is the same route taken by the Pandavas in the Mahabharata on their ascent to heaven. Swargarohini—the snow peak, the vision of which dominates this trek bears legacy of the mythical stairway to heaven. Among other relics of an interesting past, the Duryodhana Temple in village Osla on this trail deserves a mention. 

Har Ki Doon Trek is a favorite in summers and post-monsoon owing to the vibrant greens patched with orchids, rhododendrons, and other blossoms. The trail in most parts running through a deep forest cover, keeps away risks of altitude adaptation marking the trek safe for beginners and young trekkers. On an average, the trek will have 5 hours of hiking per day but thanks to thorough connection with localities, the route is full of simple facilities like little refreshing eateries on the way. 

The challenge of Har Ki Doon, besides the long hours of trek for 6 long days is trekking in the rains. The peak time of the year for this trek is not winter after snowfall but in summer frequented by rain. Proceeding through green foliages dripping with pearls of rain is a beautiful experience but trekkers must be well equipped for it. Rain trekking essential like poncho, waterproof covers, anti-diarrhea medicines, and water resistant trekking boots has to be ticked boxed first when packing for this journey.
