Warmth of Sankri

After rolling side by side while sitting in a state bus of Uttarakhand State Transport for almost 9 hrs from Dehradun you find yourself in a small village namely ‘Sankri’; getting down the bus in front of Swargrohini Hotel, passengers are welcomed with cold winds and by shaggy mountain dogs.

If wishing to carry on then good luck as you have high chances of greeting a bear! But that would be a lifetime experience.


So let the journey to Harkidun begin! Continue reading “Har-ki-Dun Trek”
