Har-Ki-Doon, Situated in the upper catchments of river Tons ,is one of the most fascinating and lesser exploited area of Garhwal Himalayas. The meadow areas fall under the Govind PashuVihar sanctuary.

 

Har-Ki-Doon ,though a less known name, stands well with the world famous valley of flowers .With regard to the variety and richness of the flowering herbs, it greatly surpasses the valley of the flowers in the area. Faunistically, Har-Ki-Doon is one of the richest parts in Garhwal Himalayas. Broadly speaking the area harbors almost all the major group of the high altitude animals known to reside in the Himalayas.

 

For long this unique area on account of its remoteness, remained free from the human impact. It has been only after forties. Of this century that few hunters and nature lovers forged their way to this area. It has been because of this, that is this area nature has remained more or less in its pristine form. while trekking in the area started only recently. The life style, dress, dialect, the traditions and the religious sentiments of the local Rawai populations inhabiting the villagesenroute, are markedly different from the rest of Garhwal. Many traditions like polyandry are still practiced here.

 

The temple in the every village is centrally located, locally called ring ghar these temples are largely resemble pagodas. Surprisingly, Kauravas are worshipped in the entire area and not the Vishnu, Brahma,or Shiva. Obviously most of the temples are related to Duryodhna and Karna .

 

With all its cultural and natural resources, this area is paradise for trekkers, mountaineers, wild lifers, ecologists, anthropologists, and social workers.

 

One gets a super view of the Bandarpunch, (6387 Meters) and Swargarohini, (6252 Mts.) peaks and many other Peaks.
