Description

Har Ki Dun is a picturesque valley nestled in the western part of Gharwal Himalayas. It is a cradle shaped valley located at the base of Fateh Parvat. Being accessible through Govind National Park, rich in flora and fauna, it is a delight for trekker in both summer and winter.

Har ki Dun is host to the most beautiful alpine meadows, pine forest and most isolated villages of India which are still unaffected by civilization. The major attraction on the Har Ki Dun trek is the view of Himalayan peaks like Swargarohini – I, II, III, Bandarpoonch and Black peak.

Apart from the Himalayan peaks, it is also rich in flora and fauna. One can spot a Black bear, Langoors, wild Boars, Golden eagles and the colourful Himalayan Monal. Har Ki Dun is known as Valley Of Gods because, in Indian mythology, it is believed that Pandavas took this root to ascend heaven.
