With an altitude of 11,768 feet, the trekking Har Ki Dun in winter is considered to be a moderate level trek.

The jaw-dropping valley of Har Ki Dun is located amidst the western hilly ranges of the mighty Garhwal Himalayas. To participate in Har Ki Dun trek in winter, you first need to make your way to the quaint village of Sankri which is situated at a distance of 200 km from the main town of Dehradun.
On the very next day, you can opt either a shared taxi or a jeep to take you to Taluka. The entire route from the Taluka Seema to Har Ki Dun is actually steep. It has got a descending edge just a couple of kilometres ahead of reaching the Har Ki Dun.
To reach Sankri from Dehradun, you have the following three options –
By Road – If you reach Dehradun Railway Station (06:00 am to 08:00 am) early in the morning, you will find some buses leaving for Sankri. The buses usually require around 9 to 10 hours of run to transfer you between the two points. Else, you can even ride a cab which will drop you to your destination within 7 to 8 hours of duration.
By Trains – The Dehradun Railway Station receives trains from almost all major railway stations across India – Lucknow, Delhi, Kolkata, etc. The frequency of incoming trains here is quite high as the Railway Station serves as a prime gateway for Uttarakhand’s Garhwal region.
By Air – The nearest airport to reach Har Ki Dun valley is Jolly Grant Airport offering air connectivity to Delhi and all other major Indian cities.
Originating from the Jumdar glacier, the River Tons descends down from the deep lush green valley of Har ki Dun. This Himalayan perennial river is believed to be Yamuna’s largest tributary accounting for a total length of 148 km. Later, this river flows and meets the Yamuna flowing towards the north-western region of the Har Ki Dun valley. Due to the turbulence created by the river, it emerges as one of the great spots for adventurous activities such as body surfing, white water rafting, and kayaking.
