Har Ki Doon or Har Ki Dun is a cradle-shaped hanging valley in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand, Har ki Dun is situated deep inside Govind Pashu National park. It is connected to Baspa Valley by the Borasu Pass. Har Ki Dun is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Western Himalayas. Rich in flora and fauna, the trails are quite often covered in different shades of orchids and other wild flowers.
The area was made popular by the Doon school master Jack Gibson after his Bander punch expeditions. Har Ki Dun trek is a classy river valley trail and it has never lost its charm to trekkers all over the world. Walking through the widespread valley, the remote villages, local lifestyle, culture and hospitality are not to be missed. The sunrise and sunset at Har Ki Dun needs special mention. Ample amount of snow makes it a compelling choice. Walking towards Marinda Tal/Jaundar glacier on the exploration day ignites the adrenaline in an adventurous mind.
The name Har ki Dun is a beautiful fusion of Dun (valley) and Har ki (God’s) and completely justifies the history associated with it. According to Mahabharat, Pandavas took their stairway to heavenly abode via Swargarohini peak, which is one of the main attractions of the trek. The famous temple dedicated to Duryodhan in the hamlet of Osla throws light on the age-old beliefs and traditions of people, who are the staunch devotees of Duryodhan and worship him like God.
Har Ki dun is a lifelong experience for anyone who even remotely connects with nature.
