Description

Har Ki Dun Valley is surrounded by dense pine forests and offers views of glittering mountain peaks all around. Owing to its isolation, the area is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. The trek passes through dense forests consisting of chestnut, walnut, willow and chinar trees. The trek from Osla to Har Ki Dun is through terraced mountain fields, lush green grassy patches and thick conifer forests. As Har Ki Dun falls within the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park, chances of seeing wildlife are very bright indeed. It was made popular by Jack Gibson, a teacher at the Doon School in the late 1940s. The surrounding peaks and glaciers in the Swargarohini range are a mountaineer’s delight.
