This trek is one of our favorites at Raahi Outdoors, If you enjoyed the scenery in the film “Lord of the Rings” and have always wanted to visit, now is your chance. You don’t need to invest a fortune or travel all the way to New Zealand to see all the sights; the trek to Har-ki-Dun will provide you with all of them and more! There are almost endless lush green meadows, wild alpine flower gardens, scraggy mountains, majestic snow-capped peaks, glaciers, and gushing streams and waterfalls. To top it off, this valley has a culture that is unlike any other mountain or plains area. It is fascinating, ancient, old, and time-tested. Our guides make sure that we get a closer look at this culture, as it is one of the trek’s highlights. The Govind Wildlife Sanctuary & National Park is located in the Garhwal Himalayas. We drive from Dehradun to Sankri, a lovely village where we spend the first night, and then a quick 40-minute drive the next day takes us to Taluka, a small market town where we begin our journey.
