Har Ki Doon - The Hanging Valley of Gods

                                  Har-Ki-Doon, the hanging valley of Gods is a treat for trekkers. The moderate-difficult trek takes you to one of the least explored regions of Garhwal. The best time to go for this trek is either June-July or October. The rest of the year is either very cold and wet or the valley is mostly shrouded by clouds. the Beautiful scenery and the glistening snow clad Swargarohini peak are the main attractions. As Har-Ki-Doon falls within the Govind Pashu Vihar, chances of seeing wildlife are very bright. September-October is the best time to see wild flowers as well.

                                      Osla, one of the most beautiful villages in the Fateh Parvat region, should not be missed. Here you have a beautifully carved temple dedicated to Duryodhana, the kaurava Prince. And if you are interested in glaciers than Jaundhar Glacier is just about 8 Kilometers from Har-Ki-Doon. It is a steep climb and requires some mountaineering skills. The glacier is situated at an altitude of 4300m.
