e pickup point is Dehradun railway station. Get on your vehicles that will take you on an elaborate mountain ride. The road passes through Chakarta, a famous hill station. It was a cantonment area of Britishers. It is not as popular as Nainital, though it is as beautiful. You can spot the heavily gushing waterfalls on the route. 

You will arrive at your base village, Lokhandi in 4 hours. It is a scenic, peaceful village. The hiking begins with a small warm-up walk on road then goes into dense forests. The forests are filled with Deodhar, pine, oak and all types of coniferous trees. As you walk more, you go deeper into the forest. In winters this section gets covered under a blanket of snow, far away from sunlight.

As you reach towards the end of the trail, it gets steeper. The route rises and suddenly ends up at a clearing of Saraswati campsite. The serene resting place shows some glimpses of peaks you would see tomorrow. After satisfying your stomach, rest in your tents.

Since today will be the summit day and also the day to return, it will be long. Wake up early, have breakfast and get ready to leave at 5 am. There is no water source, therefore, make sure you carry enough water. The initial section of the trail is steep which reduces gradient slowly. 

From dense forests, you will step into light forests to clear opening of grounds. Watch out for majestic peaks of Greater Himalayan range will start coming into visibility. By this time the morning sunlight blossoms and shines perfectly on these mountains. Be all ready to capture the glittering mountains.
After around 5-6 km you will find yourself on the highest point called Vyas Shikhar. This is an amphitheatre of grand peaks. At this site, you can find a stone Views of the Himalayas from Vyas Shikhar engraved with the directions to the major summits spotted from here.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.


In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.
