Har-Ki-Doon is one of the most gorgeous and sought after treks among Uttarakhand’s trekking destinations. Also known as the hanging valley, this beautiful valley is located at the base of Fateh Parvat, at an altitude of 3556 mts. The enchanting cradle shaped valley is rich in flora and fauna, surrounded by dense Pine forests. The trails are passes through some of the remotest villages of Uttarakhand where the civilization hasn’t been affected much by the outside world. This region is isolated and habitat for rare species of bird and wild animals. Har-Ki–Doon offers views of glittering mountain peaks such as Swargarohini and Jaundar Glacier in south-east while Banderpoonch in its west. This valley is at an altitude of approx 3500m and is a transition between Baspa Valley and Borasu Pass. The valley is covered with snow during October to March during monsoon season the vegetation of this valley is turned green and the trails are mesmerized by the Rhododendron flowers.

This place also has an importance in the Mythology. Legends say, Pandavas took this route on their ascent to heaven during Mahabharata. Swargarohini—the glittering snow-clad peak, dominant other peaks in this region bears a legacy of the mythical stairway to heaven.
