Itinerary

Day-1: Dehradun to Sankri - 8 hrs drive

We will start early from Dehradun (reporting time: 6:30 am) and reach the village of Sankri by evening. During the drive, we will be passing through the Govind Pashu National Park after we cross a check post at Netwar. After the journey, we will spend the rest of the night in a guest house or in camps.

Day-2: Sankri to Osla (2200 m) - 1h drive + 5-6 hrs trek

After breakfast, we will drive from Sankri to Taluka. It will be a one hour ride through some rough terrains. The trek commences from Taluka. Our trail will be beside the furious river Tons, and through the woods filled with walnut, pine and other trees. It will be a pleasant walk with local villagers and beautiful views greeting you.

Our trek cross path over a few streams which merge with Tons. After a few hours of walk, you will be able to see the village of Gangad towards the left, across the river. From there, we continue our hike and after about an hour’s walk, you can see the village of Osla. Seema is a tiny settlement opposite to the river from Osla. We will set camp here or stay in a hut with a local family.

Day-3: Osla to Har-ki-Dun (3510 m) – 4-5 hrs

From Osla, our trail will gradually rise higher and pass through bushes of flowers like orchids, fleece and sunflowers. We will be climbing high above the confluence of Tons river and the river from Ruinsara valley.

After trekking higher up along the left side of Tons River, we will camp at a very good spot in Har Ki Dun, located at the foot of two valleys, one from Jaundhar glacier and the other from beyond the Hata glacier.

Day-4: Explore Har ki Dun (day-1)

The little-known valley of Hata can be explored which lies in between the above two valleys. It also has some large meadows and a close view of the Hata glacier.

Day-6: Explore Har Ki Dun (day-3)

Day-7: Back to Osla – 3-4 hrs

The trek back to Osla will be easy. After reaching there, you can wander around in the village, interact with the locals and know more about the Garhwali culture. Here also, we can either set up a camp or stay with a local family.
