Detailed Itinerary

Day : Dehradun to Sankri drive, 7-8 hours' drive  187 km

We start early from Dehradun and reach the village Sankri by evening. The final stretch is through the Govind Pashu National Park after we cross a check post at Netwar. We rest at night in a guest house or in camps.

Day 02 : Sankri to Cheludgad (2,455 m), 1 hour drive 5-6 hours' hike : 12 km

Post breakfast we are transported from Sankri to Taluka. The drive is a bit bumpy. The trek commences from Taluka on a stony path. With the river Supin gushing through rapids beside us, under the shade of walnut, pine and other trees, the walk is quite pleasant. Often the passing villagers greet us on the way.

The path crosses over a few streams which merge with Supin. After a few hours of walk the village of Gangad can be seen towards the left, across the river. We walk further ahead and camp at the site known as Cheludgad.

Day 03 : Cheludgad to Kalkatidhar (3,200 m), 4-5 hours' hike : 8 km

The trek resumes on the trail we left behind the previous day. We continue our hike, cross a bridge and after about thirty minutes of uphill walk, the quaint village of Osla unfolds itself. We cross the village and the trail now gradually rises higher and passes through bushes of flowers like orchids, fleece flowers and sunflowers, most of which are in full bloom during monsoons. The ascending path climbs high above the confluence of Supin river and the river from Ruinsara valley. In winters, when there are very few people in the valley, one may catch a glimpse of elusive Monal bird near Kalkatidhar.

Day 04 : Kalkatidhar to Har ki Dun (3,510 m), 2-3 hours' hike : 4 km

The trek on this day is short. After traversing higher up along the true right side of the Supin river, we camp at a very scenic spot in Har ki Dun, located at the junction of two valleys � one originating from Jaundhar glacier and the other from beyond Hata glacier. Rest of the day can be spent relaxing and strolling in the area with the view of Swargarohini peak.

Day 05 : Explore Har ki Dun

We can choose to relax and soak in the environment or we have several trails as options.

The vast open meadows following the course of the Supin river can be explored. Further ahead of the meadows one can walk among the forests of Bhojpatra trees (Himalayan birch) or get a closer glimpse of the Jaundhar glacier and Swargarohini peak.

One can visit the Marinda Tal just 2km away from Har ki Dun. It is small glacial lake formed by a huge rock obstructing the river which flows down from Borasu pass.

The little-known valley of Hata can be explored which lies in between the above two valleys. It also has some large meadows and a close view of the Hata glacier and peak.

Day 06 : Back to Osla, 3 to 4 hours' hike : 10 km

The journey back to Osla is an easy walk. After reaching, one can roam about in the village, talk to locals and soak in the Garhwali culture. Again we can either set camp or stay with a local family.

Day 07 : Osla to Sankri, 4 to 5 hours' hike : 14 km 1 hour drive

Early in the morning, we bid farewell to the villagers of Osla and hike till Taluka. A vehicle from Taluka takes us back to Sankri, where we retire for the day in camps or a guest house.

Day 08 : Sankri to Dehradun, 8 hours drive

The trek to Har ki Dun concludes today as we leave Sankri and reach Dehradun by late afternoon on this day.
