Day 01 : DEHRADUN TO HIMRI (Drive)

After Purola we cut into the Tons valley and cross Mori and Netwar. From Netwar we follow the Rupin river upwards. Himri is roughly half way between Netwar and Dhaula. We break for the day and camp by the river side.

From Bheetri we start our journey on foot. We cross the village and after a short distance of 2 km we come across Sarutaal, a beautiful seasonal pond at the edge of the cliff. The lake and the cliff overlook the Rupin valley below. After a short break to catch our breath and enjoy the view, we move further.
