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.

This trek is taken from Dehradun to Dehradun back. It is good and interesting. The trek is one of the very beautiful treks ever. It is quite tedious and expensive too. However, it all seems very worthy and nice to take. This is mainly because of the beautiful trek trails. It was awesome. One can spot glaciers, temples, caves, meadows, and what not during the trek. Best trek.

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.

This was my second trekking experience in the Garhwal region. Truly a delight! the services provides before and during the trek is highly appreciable. The trekking is an amazing experience and is certainly a must for all backpackers.

Did this trek, 2 weeks back and had an amazing experience. The trek guide Karan was very friendly and we all had a great time. This trek is total value for money. It was a little chilly so packing a ton warm clothes is a must if you want to avoid the cold weather. Next Year Chadar trek is on my list. Already excited for it..

Incredible experience, throughout the time I was trekking I just wished I could store each and every scenery in my mind forever. The local people are such happy and helpful. For me it was my dose of meditation as the silence and the peace is simply something you cannot get in cities. Kudos to our trek guide for handling the entire responsibility with such an impressive dedication.
