Backpackers club of Delhi Message Board › Winter Trek: Har Ki Dun: 23rd - 31st March
It is time for an extended snow bound expedition into the Garhwal Himalayas. Manish and I propose a trek to Har Ki Dun in the Garhwal Himalayas. Since it is around the long Holi/Easter weekend, one needs to take leave only for 25th and 26th March, i.e. Monday and Tuesday.
The rough itinerary is as follows :-
Day 1 : 22nd Friday evening 23:55 train : Leave for Rishikesh :
Day 2 : 23rd Saturday : Reach 05:00 at Rishikesh (get down at Haridwar) : Morning take shared taxi to Sankri/ Taluka reach 17:00 in evening
Day 3: 24th Sunday : Start Trek Taluka to Seema/ Osla (12 km) reach Osla in around 2:00 PM
Day 4: 25th Monday : Osla – Har ki doon (11 km) reach HKD around 2:00 pm
Day 5: 26th Tuesday : Explore HKD valley
Day 6: 27th Wednesday :Start back Reach Osla or try to reach Taluka.
Day 7: 28th Thursday (afternoon in worst case) Start Taluka – Rishikesh by evening
Day 8: 29th Friday back to Delhi
The difficulty level of this trek is moderate. Those serious about the expedition, please get on board so we can work on logistics. We also have the option of driving our way to Taluka via Meerut - Rishikesh - Dehra Dun - Mussoorie - Sankri - Taluka but that depends on the number of participants.
