Har ki Dun is a little different from all the other treks when we look into the rich historical and cultural significance of the place. It is said to be the land of Duryodhana from Mahabharat, who remains to be the locally worshipped god till date. The people, places and the whole trail captures an insight of a different world as compared to what we’ve seen in our daily lives.
The locals believe that Har ki Dun valley is the same route that Pandavas took in order to reach Heaven and it is locally known as ‘Valley of Gods’. Also, there exists a mountain peak called Swargarohini and the subsequent valley is called the ‘Stairway to Heaven’, which may intrigue you if you’re a Led Zepplin fan.
The trek is suitable for any beginner and proves to be exciting for even an experienced trekker. The Har ki Dun difficulty is rated from easy to moderate and provides a good overall experience. The best time to visit Har ki Dun is during summers and post-monsoon season.
The valley is famous for its orchids and especially rhododendrons, which are specially grown in this region. The flora and fauna mixed with rich culture and immense historical importance secure its position among top contenders in the list of best treks in Uttrakhand.
Trek to Har ki Dun takes a total of 7 days and starts from a small village named Sankri situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttrakhand. It takes 2 days to traverse from Sankri to Har ki dun and then the group heads onto aundhar Glacier/ Maninda Tal. From there onward the group starts to pull back and return to Sankri, marking the end of the 7-day long trek.

Mythological stories about the trek:
The trail of this trek is ancient and is linked with legendary stories. According to locals, it is the same route that Pandavas took on their way to heaven and that is why it is called “Valley of Gods”. There is one beautiful peak visible from the valley named Swargarohini and it is called the stairway to heaven. As Yudishthara (one of the Pandavas) climbed this peak with his dog and reached the heaven. Apart from all this, there is one quaint village called Osla, situated on the way to Har ki Doon and it is one of the rare villages having a temple of Duryodhana (a Mahabharata character).
