Har Ki Dun Trek: A trek to the valley of Shiva

by Nathan Zachary

Har Ki Dun Valley is a steep slope in the Garhwal Himalayas. It is surrounded by snow capped peaks and mountain vegetation. Connected to Baspa Valley via Borasu Pass This valley is located at an altitude of about 3,500 feet [3500 m] above sea level and is covered with snow from October to March. The village is about 15 miles [25 km] from Taluka. The actual trek to the village starts from Taluka village and passes through Gangaad, Osala, and Seema. It is a 2-day trip usually done in two stages. The first stage is from Taluka to Seema / Osla, and the second stage is from Seema / Osla to Har Ki Dun. The return route is the same.

Mythological connection of Har Ki Dun Valley

It is believed that this valley has religious significance for Hindus and shares its past with the Mahabharata period. According to locals, the older brother of the Pandavas, Yudhishthira, ascended the Himalayas ‘Swargarohini’ on the way to heaven.

After the death of King Krishna, Sage Vyasa advised Pandavas to retire and renounce their empire as the purpose of their life had been made. Pandavas surrendered Hastinapur to King Parakshit, made Kripacharya his Guru and Yuyutsu his chief and took a break from the people of Hastinapur on their journey to heaven. As the Pandava leave, the dog becomes their friend and they take him on a journey.

On their way they passed through the village of Har Ki Dun to climb the summit of Swargarohini. Swargarohini is known as the only door to heaven on earth according to Hindu Mythology. Along the way Draupadi was the first to die because of his great choice of Arjuna over others. Next, Sahadeva dies along the way because he was proud of his intelligence and thought no one was equal to him. He was followed by Nakula because he was proud of his beauty. Then Arjuna dies as he thinks he is the most talented and powerful man in the world and always jealous of other archers. The last person to die was Beema because he was a glutton and a glutton and did not consider others hungry.
