The campsite of Har Ki Dun is picturesque as the giant Har Ki Dun peak and Hata Peak stands tall right in front of it. The tranquil streams of Maninda Gad and Hata Gad flow down silently right in the middle of the campsite, surrounded by coniferous trees and shorter mountains.
Maninda Tal and the beauty of its surrounding valley have always surprised the trekkers with its unbelievable beauty and peaceful ambience. The route goes on to one of the difficult Borasu Pass in Uttrakhand to cross over to Zupica Glacier and then onwards to Chitkul.
The trek towards the Jaundhar Glacier takes you to the bottom of the Swargarohini massif which hosts 6 peaks, 4 of which are very prominent and can be seen right from Sankri. The beauty and feeling one goes through while on this trek is just indescribable. The vast meadow beneath the snow-capped peaks of the Swargarohinis and the Jaundhar Gad melted down from the Jaundhar glacier, silently curving its way to meet the Har Ki Dun river… This confluence is mesmerizing and something to come this far for
