The trek passes through several quaint villages, oak and rhododendron forests, waterfalls, grasslands, alpine meadows, rivers, streams, and glaciers. It can be completed in about seven days starting and ending at Haridwar or Dehradun. Named after the Hindu Temple, Har Ki Dun has several legends associated with it. It is believed that this was one of the few places where Lord Krishna had performed his divine dance. The trail takes you through some of the most picturesque villages of the region, such as Osla, Seema, and Taluka.

Therefore, on treks, cardiovascular training is critically important. You need to be able to jog a distance of 4 km in 40 mins before the start of the trek. Unable to do so can make your trek difficult. In addition, preparation of trek needs to include strength and flexibility training. Registering for the trek is an understanding that you will undertake the mandated fitness training.
