HARKIDUN

TREK

Harkidun in Western Garhwal is one of the most popular trekking routes in India and for several good reasons. The trek up to Harkidun is on a broad trail, which follows a wide valley from Taluka. As a result you get views all through the trek. Harkidun is a huge meadow and offers the most stunning campsite location right next to the waters of the Supin river. The other highlight of being in Harkidun is to get a close up view of Swaragrohini. If there is a rest day available at Harkidun it allows one to take a couple of interesting short walks. The most interesting options is to walk to Mahindra Gad or to trek to the snout of the Jamdhar Glacier.
