Har Ki Dun is easily one of the most sought after treks in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalayas. This is a valley trek where you trek along the Supin River to Har Ki Dun valley. The trek has a very interesting mythology to justify the name of “Valley of Gods”. It has been said that Pandavas took the very same route to ascend to heaven via Swargarohini, the mountain that surrounds the Har Ki Dun valley. Also known as the “Doorway to Heaven”, this little valley is a trek away from the Sankri village and is located at an altitude of 3,566 m (11,600 ft) and remains carpeted with snow from October up until the end of March. The meadowed wonderland is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful treks in the Western Himalayas.
The Valley is home to villages that are more than 3000 years old that makes this a gateway to a cultural extravaganza. The trail takes you to a world that is untouched by modern technology and will definitely transport you back to simpler times.
