The Valley of Lord Shiva is a sacred region steeped in culture and folklore. Nestled within the remote Garhwal Himalayas, the trail from Dehradun to Sankri weaves through lush forests, flower-strewn meadows, and rural villages, taking in some of the most spectacular mountain views in the country.
Although the trail is open year-round, April to June and September to December are the best times to visit, as these are just before and after the monsoon season, respectively. You should avoid trekking during monsoon season, as the path becomes slippery and harder to climb.
While this is generally considered a beginner-friendly trek, it advisable to start training 3-5 months before you leave. This will help you achieve a good base level of fitness, which will help you to cope with the many hours of walking.
As well as the normal trekking essentials (hiking boots, warm clothes, snacks) many people appreciate bringing along a trekking pole to assist them with balance on the steeper portions.
