Dehradun, Almora and Port Blair Tour Itinerary
We will assemble early morning in Dehradun by 7 AM and drive towards Sankri. This small quaint village is the base for Har Ki Dun trek. Overnight stay at guesthouse/hotel in Sankri.
Early morning drive from Sankri to Taluka in a Taxi. Taluka is the starting point of our trek. After breakfast in Taluka, we will start trekking with packed lunch to Seema (2260m) on an even surface through thick forests of chestnuts, walnuts, willows, chinars and a variety of conifer trees. You will come across a few waterfalls on your way. You could either opt for the steep climb of Dhaatmeer village or just trek along the Karmanasha stream. Both the routes meet at Gangaar village. Reach Seema Camps by late afternoon. Overnight stay in tents.
The trail from Seema initially is on the left side of the valley and goes past fields. This is followed by crossing an aging bridge over river Rupin, after which we start trekking to the right side of the valley. The trail now ascends through fields and pastures with huts. The coniferous trees on the other side of the valley are beautiful. Then the trail includes a climb to the ridge locally named as Kalkattiyadhar. After a short descent from the Kalkattiyadhar, we arrive at our campsite. Overnight stay in tents.
As we move ahead from Kalkattiyadhaar camp, the trail gives an impressive view of Har Ki Dun valley. Initially, there's a gradual climb which later gets steeper as it passes through beautiful meadows which opens into Har Ki Dun. A small stream flows by the campsite, with peaks of Har Ki Dun and Swargarohini towering above. After spending some time at Har Ki Dun, we will return to Kalkattiyadhaar camp.
Spend some quality time appreciating the sunrise and enchanting view of Swargarohini Peaks from the campsite. During winters, the morning temperature can be quite cold ( around -2 degree) here. After an early breakfast, we head back to Seema. We start by crossing the Har Ki Dun Bridge and then continue with a small walk along the river. Initially, there is a gradual climb up to Kalkattiyadhar and then it is a descend up to Seema. If time permits we will take a short halt at Osla village, where you can see the typical Gharhwali Houses. Like most mountain villages, the location of Osla is such that it gets Sunlight throughout the day. So you can just sit and relax for some time. After a short while, we resume the descend to Seema where we stay for the night.
From here, there are two ways to get down. The first one is via Seema for which we have to descend to the river and cross it using the bridge. The second route which is shorter (but steeper) one goes via Puani. It meets the main trail at a point where there is a watermill. You can spend some time here understanding how watermills work. From this point, we enter the forest. The trail is now along the river. The last few minutes of the trek is over a cemented trail. We arrive in Taluka by afternoon. We board our vehicle and reach Sankri in about an hour or so. Check into the guest house. Celebrate the completion of the Har Ki Dun trek with you trek-mates.
Check out after breakfast and board your vehicles for the drive back to Dehradun. We will reach Dehradun by late evening.
