Truth Behind The Myths

Many fables and tales of the era of Mahabharata are admired here. But, it is essential aware of the readers and trekkers about the real facts and myths.

Many trekking companies claim myths about the worship of Duryodhana in the temple of Yudhishthira. Local people believe that they reach heaven via Har Ki Dun Trek. The truth is none of this exists here as per accurate facts and research. On the contrary, the chronicle of Yudhishthir reaching heaven through the Har ki Dun trail never exists here.

Instead, the saga of reaching heaven was through the path of Badrinath towards Swargarohini peak at Narayan Parvat (mountain).

The locations elapsed are Laxmi van, Chakaratir, Sahastradhara, and Satopanth Lake.

Furthermore, there is no existence of any Duryodhana temple at the Mori district of Uttarkashi. Instead, the temple, which is claimed as Duryodhana Temple, is the Someshwar Mahadev temple, a chapel of Lord Shiva.

Thus, Har Ki Dun is also known as “The valley of Shiva.”

    We have known Kuldeep and his team for over a decade and have never been disappointed. The team is excellent, food exceptional and wholesome. Harish, Negi and Janak took care of us. Home stay in Oslo was wonderful.

    Thank you to Kuldeep and his team….

    As suggested by my father who has done this trek almost 3-4 times now, I decided to give Har Ki Dun a try. It was just me and my partner who started the journey along with Kamlesh ji (lead guide), thapa (cook) and in no time they became like family. The entire experience was so warm and surreal. Adding to the beauty of the mountains, the staff made sure we have the best time of our lives. The humble yet sumptuous food, welcoming attitude and heartwarming hospitality made this trek a cake walk. If you want a trek to be more than just walking , you need to try it out with these people and through Himalayan Hikers. I have already planned my winter trek with them. Hoping to weave more memories with these amazing people. Cheers to the team and the company. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Recently our Group of 11 members went on the Har ki dun trek which was organised by Himalayan Hikers. Our group members were of different age groups and physical standards.
    We were very happy by the professional manner in which the trek was conducted. The guides were excellent and ensured we have a great and enjoyable trek. The support staff was excellent and the standard ad quality of the food served was outstanding.
    I strongly recommend Himalayan Hikers to conduct any future treks. Well done and keep it up.

    )-”I already given a 5-star rating, but I also wanted to provide my two cents in case anyone is unsure about purchasing”
    Feedback from Mahesh Shah, Mumbai.
    We were group of 26 senior citizens and we intended to go for a first trek in our life to Har-ki-Dun in Oct 2012. We hired 15 horses, as some people wanted to go on horse not to trek. It was quite difficult terrain. Mr.Chain Singh and his team had managed quite well to an extent I can say that I have a doubt whether other team could have managed such senior citizens with care and love. I strongly feel that Mr.Chain Singh and his team can deliver to the trekers best services and attention. I recommend to all as we had best experience with him. If you want to contact me for further information you can call me on my mobile 09820023462. Mahesh Shah, Mumbai.

    I did my Har ki Dun trek from 29th Dec to 2nd Jan 2016 with Himalayan hikers . It was a great experience. Kuldeep ji, it was a pleasure meeting an experienced mountaineer as you.. The staff Ramesh ji and Vikram ji took very good care of us. Thank you for organizing a wonderful trek for us. Looking forward to more treks in future..

    To describe har ki dun I only have these words – “WOW”. After witnessing nature at its best I lost my heart there. I had no idea that my first Himalayan trek would be so amazing. Everything went smooth on the trek because of good arrangements and execution. The facilities and services provided were outstanding and the adventure of this trek was perfect for us. After combining everything, I want to say that our group had a great experience. – Abhishek Bhargava, Mumbai

    The way they organise all events are unmatchable. And the guides are the treasure of this group.

  14. Sukeshi Vora

    We had amazing winter trek of Harkidun with Team Himalayan Hikers…..Taking shelter in cave during adverse snowstorm and having riverside birthday celebrations of my son were the unforgettable experiences gifted to us by Gangaji and Pramod Ranaji…..Warmth and hospitality of staff is beyond words!!! In fact when all other trekking companies backed out due to heavy snowstorm, Himalayan Hikers team motivated us to complete the trek and reach the summit to admire the virgin beauty of mighty Himalayas. We’re eagerly awaiting to do Rupinpass trek ,Bardasar lake trek and Annapurna basecamp trek with them!!! Just can’t forget sipping hot tea with snacks sitting on riverside dining table….in misty weather!!! Trekking with Himalayan Hikers was an awesome experience!!!
