“Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear”

-Haruki Murakami

Living up to its name, ‘Har ki Dun’!

Steeped in mythology, this beautiful Valley of Lord Shiva is nothing less than an enchanting delight for the trekkers during both summer and winter season. Nestled amidst the high mountains and the gushing streams, entering this incredible space will make one realize the vastness of the nature, and our existence as tiny beings on this planet.

While on the journey to Har ki Dun, we will witness the surroundings at its best. From wooden bridges, alpine meadows, pine forests, moraines and ridges, to more than 3000 years old villages with four-story houses of wooden architecture and beautiful people residing in them; this trail is a mighty experience that will stay with you forever. The richness of this valley is not just limited to the mystical views, birds, and animals but also has a deeply rooted culture, wherein the women are outspoken and enjoy an upper hand in the family.

Located at a high altitude, trail to Har Ki Dun can offer you a glimpse of astounding wildlife that exists in the forest areas here. Sight of leopards, black bear, that, musk deer, and blue sheep be a feast for your eyes. And if it is one of your lucky days, you might get to experience the magnificent glimpse of a Snow Leopard! Spotting the Flying Himalayan griffins and golden eagles are common in the enormous blue skies lying above this place. This will surely be an intimate journey with the nature.

Going by the saga around this valley, the locals of Har Ki Dun are believed to be the descendants of Alexander – The great Greek king, who once settled on the ground of this valley. The fair skin, long height and Persian features of the residents will definitely make one wonder about this fact.

Be it summers, winters or monsoons all seasons are much welcoming, especially for the travel junkies; sometimes for the trek and sometimes for mere enjoyment of festivities in this region. One can totally sink into the culture and traditions of this valley. During the monsoon season, people here rejoice and celebrate the festival of ‘Someshwar Devta (Duryodhana)’. Around 22 villages across this valley come together and worship their deity who is also considered to be an avatar of Lord Shiva.

Now we can just imagine it vicariously! But frankly, nothing better than being there and journeying that!
