Why we love the Har Ki Dun - Ruinsara Valley trek

A tribute film by Indiahikes

Today I’m sharing one of the recent films that we simply loved! 

It’s about Why We Love The Har Ki Dun - Ruinsara Valley trek. 

You may wonder why. It is such an old trek; so many people have been here. What’s all the fuss about? 

That’s what I initially thought too. 

But this film caught me by surprise. It captures sections of the trek that I never knew existed. Aside from the valley and the ancient culture, the film shows you a different angle of this trek. 

I won’t give it away here. Watch it at the link below. Our filmmaker, Dhaval Jajal, has tastefully made it. It also contains candid interviews with some of our most experienced trek leaders at Indiahikes.

This film is coming at such an apt time. Two days ago, the Indiahikes team opened the trail to Ruinsara Tal. The winter snow had made the trail unapproachable. But with the onset of spring, we could open the trail. The setting is simply mind-blowing. You’ll see what I mean in the film. 

I won’t keep you here any longer. If you’ve done this trek, I’d love to know your favourite section of this video. Drop a comment below.
