Overview

Dev Kyara Trek takes you to a high altitude meadow located in the Sankri range of the state of Uttarakhand. The meadow is massive, about 4 Km wide and is located at an altitude of 4,100 m between the famous Rupin & Supin Valleys. Dev Kyara is considered to be an easy - moderate difficulty trek and therefore, provides a great opportunity to beginners to explore the untouched locations and trails in the western Garhwal Himalayas.

Walking along the Dibra Gad river across the dense forests of Deodar & Oak trees you will be able to spot many famous mountain peaks like - Black Peak, Daowdu, Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini and others. The best time to visit this trek is pre and post monsoon periods.

The 230 Km long ride from Dehradun to Sankri will mark the beginning of Dev Kyara Trek. This exciting and thrilling journey will take you through the beautiful Himalayan mountains and rivers. It will take about 8 hours to reach Sankri from Dehradun. On the way we will cross some of the most famous hill stations of India including Mussooriee, Dhanaulti, Purola & others.

At the end of our journey we will enter the Govind Pashu National Park, famous for its wide variety of flora & fauna. Make your important phone calls before reaching Mori because the network gets very erratic beyond that.

The trek is a short easy trail of about 3.4 Km. along the Dibra Gad river. After walking for about a kilometer we will cross a bridge and get on the opposite side of the Dibra river.

Soon the trail will enter a steep ascend through the boulders and the scenery will change completely. The forest will open into a vast ground surrounded by towering mountains at a distance.
