There are endless lush green meadows, wild alpine flower gardens, scraggy mountains, towering snow-capped peaks, glaciers and gushing streams & waterfalls that seem to spring from nowhere. To top it all it this valley has a very interesting, unique, old and time tested culture very different to any other mountain or plains region. Our guides ensure that we get a very up close experience of this culture as this is one of the highlights of this trek. We have made a change in the traditional Har-ki-Dun itinerary by adding another stage which takes you to the high altitude Jaundhar Bamak (glacier). This will add a contrasting element of high altitude scenery to the trek as we cross the 4000m mark. We get close views of a big glacier, walk on moraine and scree and get very close to the famous and towering Swargarohini peaks. If you are willing to do more than just touch Har-ki-Dun and head back, then Har-ki-Dun with
