Long Version Trek for Hari - ki - Dun Trekking ::-->>

 

Summer : 9 days : Soft Trek ::


The hanging valley of Gods - Har ki Doon is trekkers paradise in the least explored areas of Garhwal. This valley is a treat for botanist, bird watchers & explorer. At the back drop is glistening snow clad Swargarohi peak & it has forests of pine, deodar & other conifers bordering vast stretches of meadows. Har-ki-Doon falls within the Govind Pashu Vihar. Druyodhana, the Kaurava Prince is traditionally worshipped as main deity in the Fateh Parvat region. This region is separated from Himachal Pradesh by river Tons. Jaundhar Glacier (4300 m) is also of great interest just about five kilometers from Har-ki-Doon.
 

West of the Bhagirathi lies the valley of the Tons. The Tons Valley is a botanist’s paradise. The green alpine valley is full of multicolored flowers — nasturtiums with bright yellow and red flowers, primulas, geraniums, white chrysanthemums, and wild roses of various hues, junipers, cedar and birch forests which are among the best in the entire Garhwal Himalayas. It is one of the most enchanting valleys for trekkers and tourists.

The Supin River drains the water from the Banderpunch, Black Peak and Swargarohini Peaks in the Tons Valley. Tons is famous for its green forests of the pine and deodar trees — one of the best forests in Asia.

The approach to the Har-Ki-Dun Valley takes one through the Tons Valley and the villages of Taluka, Panwali and Osla. From a distance, the blood-red Ramdana fields contrast with the greenery of the area and make the landscape colorful.

The view from Taluka towards the Har-Ki-Dun Valley and the Banderpunch peak is fascinating. There are green deodar, fir and spruce forests, spread on both sides of the valley, whereas the river is mainly flat and wide. The Tons River makes serpentine loops at this place which enhances the beauty.

At Netwar village is the confluence of the Rupin and Supin rivers. It is an upcoming township and there are shops, schools, medical facilities and government offices here. The Duryodhan temple, dedicated to Duryodhan — the eldest brother of the Kauravas of the epic Mahabharata — makes this small part of the region different from the rest of the country.

After the confluence of the Rupin and Supin rivers, the river is “baptized” and called the Tons River. It flows down through the deep gorge that separates the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The area is inhabited by the well- known tribals of Jaunsar-Bawar, who are called Jaunsaries.
