Yes, the first few days were very impatient as we had to wait to make it to the Jaundhar Glacier. Then it came on the fourth day of trekking after we got to enjoy the lush beauty of the Har Ki Doon valley on the third day. Trekking was pretty easy and was very exciting. Must mention here about the treatment we got from the trek guides and staffs. They were helpful in all the ways and did their best to make us comfortable at such great heights.

Everything about Har Ki Dun Trek started from a small discussion with all friends. All were ready to take this trek and once decided we were searching for a good and experienced organiser. Some of our friends had already experienced some events with Thrillophilia and thus we too ended up booking the trek with them. The way they planned the Har Ki Dun Trek itinerary was really amazing and also the guides and crew members appointed were very good. The overall service along with the experience of trekking was awesome and was totally exciting.
