Trek Plan

From Dehradun to Raithal

You will be picked up by our team at the bus stop or the train station, and we will assist you in making the transfer from Dehradun to Raithal. A little town called Raithal, which is situated twenty kilometres above the city of Uttarkashi and serves as the beginning point of the trip, is where you will finally arrive. In Raithal, you will stay at the homestay and a briefing and introduction session with the person leading the trek and the other people who are travelling with you will be held.

From Raithal to Gui

After breakfast we will start our trek to Gui and while we are trekking, we come across a great view of the oak woodland as well as a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountain peaks that are covered in lush greenery. Once you have arrived at the campground, you have the option of going for a stroll in the evening to familiarise yourself with the surrounding area.

From Gui to Summit and back

After breakfast, you will go on a trek that is simple to moderate to reach Dayara Top. You will go through woodlands, open out to expansive meadows, and take in vistas of mountains that are beautifully green. After dinner, make your way down to the campground, where you will spend the night. As you make your way down this path, you will find yourself traversing meadows that are bursting with vivid colours. Even if the last slope is hard, the spectacular view of the Dodital range makes it worthwhile to put in the effort to climb through it.

From Gui to Dehradun

In the early hours of the morning, when we had finished our breakfast, we left this lovely place and began our journey over the same path that leads from Gui to Raithal through the forest. You will be picked up by the driver as soon as you arrive in Raithal, and he will even assist you with the transfer to Dehradun, which is where your journey will come to a conclusion.
