I have so many memories of Har Ki Dun trek. Right from the day ones drive from Dehradun to small village which is a stating point of the trek. The group members were amazing and very friendly. We trekked to some of the remote villages of Himalayas and witness the stunning beauty of Uttarakhand. Out trip leader was very friendly and funny. Food during the trek was good and stay was in camps which was the most amazing thing. Overall I loved the experience and I am glad that I went for this trek. Special thanks to our trip organizers and our trip leader for solving our every problem.

It was cold but it was beautiful and we had a blast. Make sure you carry enough warm clothes and good trekking shoes. Trek was not that difficult except few terrains. I was amazed by the views of snow covered mountains and alpine forest. The best part of the trek was reaching Jaundhar Glacier. The whole stretch was covered with snow and the view was amazing. I had seen so many different spices of birds and our guide told us that most of these are migratory birds. Stay arrangement was good so was the food. I totally enjoyed this trek.

Kedarkantha trek is absolutely the first choice for the trekkers if himalayan trekking is considered. Having a moderate trekking trail with a cover of beauty all arround makes it even more suitable for treeking expedition. The nearby pine trees are really big and there are many flat grounds where a camp can be set up easily. One such campsite was the Juda-Ka-Talab campsite which was a perfect place and the Kedarkantha Base also.

Wao what a beautiful place it was, just can not understand why it was unknown and undeiscovered to me...!!! Absolute the land of paradise for trekkers and nature lovers. Before starting my adventure i had searched a lot about the location in internet as well. Saw the dense forest of pine trees and oak. Well there were many campsites but above all i loved to spend time in the Hargaon camp, which was just awesome.

Amazing location, the views are just great. Trekking to Nagtibba might get challenging but then all the effort is worth putting for. Since the view is damn good.

Completing the Har Ki Dun trek was like a dream come true for me and my friends. Though we had some prior trekking experience in South India, the complete Har Ki Dun trek itinerary made us feel like it was something new and we had abundance of thrill and adventure during the trek. Actually our excitement started as soon as we got to book the trek with Thrillophilia and waited impatiently for it to happen. After we joined the trek, we were really taken care in a very decent way. Though expecting a home like treatment at such heights was impossible, we must admit, the trek organisers did their best in making us feel comfortable. Foods were really healthy and the overnight stays were arranged accordingly. The trek guides and other staffs were all experts in their respective fields. We really had adventurous times during the entire Har Ki Dun trek itinerary.

This was my first trek in Himalayas and my friend suggest that I should go for Har Ki Dun vallley trek. Trek is not very difficult and first time can easily do this trek. If you like to see majestic and natural beauty this trek is perfect. You will come across lot of small images during this trek. During our trek one day we got the snow and we trekked in soft snow. Out guide told us the story of Pandavs and how they scaled this mountain to enter heaven. Overall nice experience and if you are beginner you can go for this trek.
