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.

This trek is taken from Dehradun to Dehradun back. Once you reach Dehradun, the trek is planned and executed without much ado by the organizers. The organizers and the trek leaders were good and interesting people. This trek is one of the very beautiful and stunning treks ever. Needless to say, this is quite tedious and expensive too. However, I would say that all of this seems very worth and good to spend. This is mainly because of the beautiful trek trails and a stunning view from trek top. The trek was awesome. My cousins and I had a really great time here. We enjoyed the trek, and we are hoping forward to see the pictures soon as we just got back from the trek. One must be careful though as the trek is quite risky too. However, there are trek safety leaders to manage worst case scenarios.

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.

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.

Nice trek with awesome group of people. Out trip leader was highly motivated and funny. Right from the beginning to the end of the trek each day we had seen new places. Trek was not that difficult and the best part of the trek was camping and listening to the stories of people. I was amazed as most of the people been to 3 -4 treks in Himalayas as it was my first trek. Definitely one of the best trip of my life with awesome people. Thanks a lot guys for organizing such an amazing trip.

What I like best about Har ki Doon trek is that you get to see green fields, rugged mountains as well as snow capped hills - so just in one trek you get to experience three different natural beauties. I loved the trekking, its not at all those impossible kind treks, you can easily complete it, however the rugged trails at times make it a challenging affair. But in all a great experience and especially our trek guide was an awesome guy...so kudos to all the team members, Trek guide, Thrillophilia for making it a memorable experience.

This was my second trekking experience and also first in the Uttarkahnd. The entire state is soo beautiful. It looks like Himachal and Uttarakhand are twin sisters as both these states share some awesome trekking destinations. Har Ki Doon trek is a moderate trek, it might get tricky at times but if you successfully wish to complete the trek then just take sufficient breaks in between - enjoy the natural beauty and make sure you have ample space in memory card as each and every place is worth clicking.

A fun experience. Har Ki dun is more than just a trek - the type of scenery that I witnessed here was completely new and grand. Great place, all the people that I met on trekking had prior trekking experience unlike me but I must say everybody including the trek guide were so supportive and understanding. Everybody co-operated in break times which made this trek a memorable experience for me and I'm sure for others as well.
