Cheludgad / Seema Camp

 After have breakfast start trek beautiful forest on the way and look like animals thrive in this region. One can spot langoor families near Puani Garaat. Black bears, wild boars and Barasingha are few of the other animals you can spot if you’re lucky. Golden eagles and massive Himalayan griffins also live here. The colourful Himalayan monal, the state bird of Uttarakhand, thrives in the forests here.

There is a four-wheel-drive road that connects Sankri with Taluka. You can hire a jeep (locally) for this, subject to the condition of the road. This is a landslide prone-route, and is often closed during the monsoons. The trail to Taluka is almost level, going through 10-11 mountain bends. On the way, there are three big streams, almost submerging sections of the road in water. The hike is scenic, going past a series of wild roses and irises; bamboo, chestnut and cedar (deodar) trees. Just 2 km before Taluka, there is a campsite beside a stream. You can camp here if there isn’t enough time to go to Puani Garaat, i.e if you’re hiking from Sankri. Taluka is a small village with concrete houses. This is actually in contrast with the architecture in neighbouring villages like Sankri, Osla and Gangad, which are close to 300 years old. Reached at camp overnight stay intents.

Both the routes meet at . This is also one of the few treks where one can come across the local lifestyle in close proximity. The villages on the trail are ancient and seem like from a different civilization.

Most of the residents here grow rajma, potato and rice for living. They also weave their own wool and make jackets and coats, Folklore: Villagers here believe that their ancestors were Pandavas ane Kauravas. In the temple of Osla, which lies on the trail, there is a Duryodhan Temple, which some villagers also refer to as the Someshwar Temple. Start the day’s trek by heading to Osla village, which involves crossing the bridge and walking alongside the river till you reach Osla. Osla is a small village that is famous for a Duryodhana Temple. Some people say it is the temple of Someshwar Devta (an avatar of Lord Shiva). The architecture of this temple is a wonder in itself.

Spend some time here before moving on. Description: Seema and Osla are prominent villages on the trail to Harkidun in the Western Garhwal region. The village folk have a prominent temple in their village but more importantly what they consider sacred is the Maldaru Lake. Maldaru is located about 1500 M above their village towards east. But this route steep. If you wish to enjoy the views, it is the route from Taluka that captures the imagination of all trekkers. It has a gentle gradient but takes you through places that are pristine and views that are picturesque. On day two you camp at Vishkhopri.

We have done Kedarkantha, Yamunotri, Gaumukh and Dodital with the team and will recommend and travel with Himalayan Hikers in future as well. I am glad that I travelled with the team to the most amazing places in Himalayas and the services and efficiency of the staff made the experience even more awesome. All the treks were well organized and the staff is efficient in whatever job they handle. Kuldeep our team leader is very efficient and always helpful and well informed about the area and its culture.

Tanisha Garg - This was my first trekking experience with Himalayan Hikers. They are just awesome guys. Took care of small everything. Worth the price they charge you. I went to Kedarkantha Trek for 6 days and the quality of service is excellent. Food, lodging was good. Tough guides can piss you off sometimes.


Nik Nikk - After doing a lot research online I decided to book my first ever trek with Himalayan Hikers and was part of their 29th July Hampta Pass Trek and I honestly consider myself very lucky that I decided to go with Himalayan Hikers and not with anyone else. Right from day 01 when we arrived in Manali they took care of us like a family member. They have the best group of team members who are always there for you no matter what. They have an answer to each and every question you have in your mind. I was surprised to see the professionalism that every Himalayan Hikers staff displayed during the trek


Channing Kaiser - My study abroad program used Himalayan Hikers back in 2013, and they were amazing. They were well-versed on the area, attentive and helpful to all participants, and really fun, too. They 100% enhanced our hiking experience. Great logistics, wonderful food, and knowledgeable, caring guides. We couldn't have asked for more.


preeti luthra - Thank you very much for organizing our trek. All of us had a wonderful time and it was an excellent experience. Though we didn't reach Baradsar Lake, the route was beautiful, with great views of the mountains. Your team did a fine job of making us comfortable on the trek. In particular, Surender, and vikram, team was a very attentive and supportive guide. We were all impressed with his ability to lead the trek and ensure our comfort and security.


Nitesh kumar - One of the best adventures trek for trekking enthusiast if you do it in winter. Make sure weather is not cloudy otherwise you may miss some beautiful peaks


Mukesh Kumar - For treking in uttarakhand, you should go to them. Every aspect regarding the safety is been taken care and the raft guides are very good. Simply you will enjoy their services from beginning to end


ekta sharma - For treking in uttarakhand, you should go to them. Every aspect regarding the safety is been taken care and the raft guides are very good. Simply you will enjoy their services from beginning to end.
