Complete Itinerary

Whenever you are going through a certain area, there are some sites and individuals that you look at with a healthy dose of jealousy. One of these places is Gangar, which is one of the most beautiful villages we have ever seen. It has a mountain background, colourful trees, a river that flows by the side, wooden houses, terrace farms, and everything else that could be included on a postcard. While we were on our way to the Har Ki Dun valley, we had passed by this settlement. Fortunately, we were able to camp close to the village on the leg that we were returning from, and we had sufficient energy reserves to go about the area.

After the first night in Gangar, the journey will take you to a location known as Taluka. Your hiking will get underway after you reach Taluka. This very short trip offers a lot of excitement because to the dense woods and winding streams it passes through. Before you begin your trek now, make sure that your food and water bottles are adequately stocked, and don't forget to fill up your water bottle. The walk begins in a picturesque location beside the Tonnes River and then enters a forest filled with conifers. After that, it gets to the bridge. There is a fording of the river, and after about twenty minutes of walking, you will reach a wooden bridge that, when crossed, will bring you to the waters below.

 After then, the walk turns into a delightful experience with numerous shade trees. Because there is none of the blinding light that comes with the day, this is perfect for photography. You will be able to hear the sounds of the river flowing and the birds singing as you make your way through the forest while strolling under its canopy. During the warm summer months, this path is often used by residents as a freight ferrying route. And throughout the fall, you'll see that they are stockpiling the things they need to get through the winter. After lunch, you will be treated to a breathtaking panorama of miles-long potato and maize fields along your walk. Almost immediately after that, you will arrive to the Kalkatiyadhar campground where you will be staying.

Today is the pinnacle of the journey. You are planning to leave the campground quite early in the morning. Savour the delectable breakfast, and get ready for the most gorgeous and enjoyable day of the walk today. This day has a variety of stunning sceneries. You will go over several moraines as well as some breathtaking meadows. The glacier basin hike has the potential to be difficult, but it also has the potential to be rewarding. The hiking path is lined with tall pine trees. The ascents along today's trek vary in difficulty from moderate to severe. In the winter, when the temperatures are very low and there is a heavy blanket of snow, there are waterfalls that have frozen over. When early summer arrives, the waterfall has a magnificent cascading effect. You will succeed in reaching the peak of Har Ki Dun if you give it one more effort. Take in the breathtaking panorama of the picturesque valley below and the snow-capped mountains that surround you. A breathtaking panorama of the peaks of the Swargarohini, Hata, and Black mountains can be seen from the top.  During your visit, spend some time at the peak. Take in all of the natural splendour that surrounds you. In towns and cities, you will not get to see nature in its most beautiful form. After lunch, you will continue to walk along the same path. Continue descending till you reach the same camping spot at Kalkattiyadhar.

This marks the beginning of your trek back. The journey to rolati will be exactly the same as the one you took previously. Therefore, the journey is the same as before. You are now going to start climbing, but you will continue to descend until your very final day. On the other hand, this is an opportunity to reexperience those times in the valleys and landscapes once again. Make use of your camera to take pictures of as many different landscapes and scenes as you can. You are going to look back on these times and love them. The route to the campground runs and ends up in Rolati. Stay overnight and have dinner.

After breaking camp Rolati, start hiking in the direction of Ruinsara Lake; this is a lengthy journey, so bring a lunch with you to eat in the midst of it. After completing the ascent, you will be amazed by the near vistas of snow-capped mountains that are interspersed with waterfalls that cascade. Because this segment of the trail is muddy and certain sections of it are slippery, you need to proceed with caution in order to reach the next stage, which consists of crossing a bridge across Supin.

As you leave this peaceful lake behind, you will continue on your journey to Devsu Bugyal, which will provide you with the same breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains and expansive valleys. After you have arrived at the campground, you may set up your tent in the middle of the field, have some delectable meals and rest well in tents.

Today after breakfast we will proceed to reach Osla. Osla village is a delightful halt on the route to the Har ki Dun walk. It is well-known for its gorgeous surroundings and traditional wooden cottages, and it is a charming break. The tranquil ambiance that it provides, which is surrounded by apple orchards and nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, is so captivating that it draws in people. Osla is not only stunning in terms of its natural beauty, but it also has significant cultural and historical value. Duryodhana Temple, an old temple that is dedicated to the Kaurava prince from the Hindu epic Mahabharata, may be seen near the hamlet where it was first built. The elaborate wooden carvings that cover the temple are a monument to the region's rich tradition, and the temple itself remains a memorial to that legacy. Through exploration of Osla, tourists are able to get an understanding of the rural way of life of the Garhwali people. You get the opportunity to engage in conversation with the natives, gain knowledge about their rituals and practices, and indulge in genuine Garhwali food. Stay at night in Osla and have dinner.

Today after breakfast we will start trekking for around three to four hours to reach Taluka. This will be our last day of camping. Enjoy the beautiful environment and feel the nature’s silence for whole day. After dinner stay overnight in camps.

Today is the last day of your trekking journey. We will leave to Deharad just after the breakfast. From there, you can go to your places by yourselves. Say goodbye to new friends and mountains.
