Literally meaning ‘Valley of Gods’, Har Ki Dun is one of the most scenic treks of Uttarakhand and will heighten your senses as you tread into its wilderness. The valley is most alive when it blooms rhododendrons of vibrant colors pink, mustard and white. One of the few treks to operate during winters, as during this season, the decked up flower valley sheds its layers and transforms to a tranquil desolate paradise. The trek takes one through the wooded forests of Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and the summit offers an uninterrupted view of the towering peaks of Swargarohini, Bandar Poonch and Kala Nag looking down at the valley. This trek is a must-do for all mountain lovers and can be done by first timers with appropriate fitness levels.
