Detailed Overview

The Ruinsara Lake (3500 m) at the edge of the Tons River glacier is famous for its wildflowers and grazing meadows used by the local shepherds. The trek follows the Tons River from Netwar village up through the villages of Gangad, Seema and Osla. WIth the rich flora and fauna of the national park and the lush green valleys of the Himalayas greeting you at every turn, a trek to Ruinsara will be an experience of a lifetime. When you reach Ruinsara Tal, you can spend a day exploring the nearby Bandarpoonch glacier and other beauties this place has to offer.

This area has some of the most beautiful forests. It was made popular by Jack Gibson, a teacher at the Doon school in the late 1940s.  It is a beautiful trek through the Govind National Park famous for its wildflowers. The surrounding peaks and glaciers in the Bandarpoonch Range are a mountaineer's delight.


Day-1: Dehradun to Sankri (210 km - 8 hrs drive)

We will start early from Dehradun and reach Sankri by evening. We will be travelling on the road going through Mussoorie- Nainbagh- Damta- Naugaon-Purola-Mori-Netwar. The final 22 km of this ride will be through the Govind national park on a rough terrain. We spend the night in guesthouses in Sankri.

Day-2 : Sankri to Seema via Taluka | 1-hour drive, 14km (5-6 hours trek)

Post breakfast we are transported from Sankri to Taluka. The drive is a bit bumpy. The trek commences from Taluka on a stony path. With the river Supin gushing through rapids beside us, under the shade of walnut, pine and other trees, the walk is quite pleasant. Often the passing villagers greet us on the way.

The path crosses over a few streams which merge with Supin. After a few hours of walk the village of Gangad can be seen towards the left, across the river. We continue our hike and after about an hour's walk, the quaint village of Osla unfolds itself. Seema is a tiny settlement opposite to the river from Osla. We set camp here or stay in a hut with a local family in the village.
