Har Ki Dun: Best Valley Trek in Uttarakhand
Whenever it’s come to visit Har Ki Doon trek, you must think about the mythical significance of this place.
Har Ki Doon Trek literally means the valley of Gods or the Valley of Lord Shiva. According to local peoples, it is believed that the elder brother of Pandavas, Yudhishthira climbed the peak of Swargrohini, to reach heaven.
Apart from the mythological influence, Har Ki Doon Trek is considered as the doorway of ancient Himalayan culture.
During Har Ki Doon trek, you will visit several ancient villages that are more than 3000 years old. These ancient villages include Seema, Gangaad, Osla and these villages are reserved from the outside world.
Here the villagers intercept their culture. They wear the clothes that they make from the weaved wool. They eat mainly that they grow in their field.
These villagers also retain their wooden houses and the places of worship. This trek is considered one of the rare treks where you will get an intimate look at the local lifestyles.
In this region, the main worshipped deity is Duryodhana. Local peoples believe that the Har Ki Doon Trek was the home of a warrior named Bhog Dat who was a supporter of the Kaurava.
Therefore, the Har Ki Doon Valley is a place where Duryodhana is worshipped. Though with passing the time, these traditions and cultures are slowly attenuated.
In the Western Himalayan region, the Har Ki Doon Trek is considered as one of the most beautiful valleys. This valley resides in the Govind National Park, and the trekking trail passes through the alpine meadows, glacier basins, moraine ridges, ancient villages, and the forests of pine. Presently, you will get the complete trekking experience with the Ruinsara Tal.
You will find the Ruinsara valley more beautiful than Har Ki Doon trek, particularly for the alpine lake of Ruinsara Tal. This beautiful lake is situated among the grassy meadows and several snow-covered peaks surrounding it.
From here, you can see the divine view of the hanging glaciers of Swargarohini. Then you can see the Devsu Thach, a beautiful meadow you can’t ever forget in your life. With the Har Ki Doon trek, you will witness all of these natural beauties.
