Isn't it great if the riveting Himalayas are accounted in merely 2 days? Isn't it wonderful to witness India's highest peak without going higher? Of course, it is a lucky opportunity for all the mountain lovers to witness yet another, a fascinating trek of 2 days Deoban trek. The essence of a weekend trek is that in less time and less effort one gets to encounter the entire splendidness of the Himalayas. The Deoban trek is a winner in that aspect. From 3000 meters Deoban shows 55 big peaks including Nanda Devi, Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch and the list is really big. The trek begins from Chakarta, an epic tourist place of British time. This less popular star still holds some of the architecture of Britishers. 

The name Deoban means dense forests of Deodhar, therefore, no doubt the trail is flourished with Deodhar trees. Not only that, being the beauty of Uttarakhand mountains, a mix of Pine, Oak trees can also be seen. The camping sites are flawlessly blessed with amazing meadows. Surprisingly, in winters the trail is covered with snow. Therefore, making it a thrilling winter trek. Due to thick forest cover, it nurtures various species of birds including, babblers, thrushers etc. 

The green cover magically rises into Deoban which is magnificent Coliseum showing the grandeur of huge peaks of  Nanda Devi(7816 meters), Hardeol(7151 meters), Trishul(7120 meters), Chaukhamba(7138 meters), Kedarnath(6940 meters), Dunagiri(7066 meters), Kedardome(6831 meters),  Kalanag(6373 meters), Bandarpunch(6102 meters), Srikantha(6133 meters), Swargarohini Massif( 6252 meters), Kirti Stambh(6270 meters), Nanda Ghunti(6309 meters), Sumeru Parvat(6351 meters) and you should visit and spot the rest!

  • Detailed Itinerary

    Day 01: Drive Dehradun to Lokhandi and trek to Saraswati.

    The pickup point is Dehradun railway station. Get on your vehicles that will take you on an elaborate mountain ride. The road passes through Chakarta, a famous hill station. It was a cantonment area of Britishers. It is not as popular as Nainital, though it is as beautiful. You can spot the heavily gushing waterfalls on the route. 
    You will arrive at your base village, Lokhandi in 4 hours. It is a scenic, peaceful village. The hiking begins with a small warm-up walk on road then goes into dense forests. The forests are filled with Deodhar, pine, oak and all types of coniferous trees. As you walk more, you go deeper into the forest. In winters this section gets covered under the blanket of snow, far away from sunlight. 
    As you reach towards the end of the trail, it gets steeper. The route rises and suddenly ends up at a clearing of Saraswati campsite. The serene resting place shows some glimpses of peaks you would see tomorrow. After satisfying your stomach, rest in your tents.


    Day 02: Saraswati to Vyas Point and back to Koti Kanasar via Saraswati. Drive to Dehradun

    Since today will be the summit day and also the day to return, it will be long. Wake up early, have breakfast and get ready to leave at 5 am. There is no water source, therefore, make sure you carry enough water. The initial section of the trail is steep which reduces gradient slowly. 
    From dense forests, you will step into light forests to clear opening of grounds. Watch out for majestic peaks of Greater Himalayan range will start coming into visibility. By this time the morning sunlight blossoms and shines perfectly on these mountains. Be all ready to capture the glittering mountains.
    After around 5-6 km you will find yourself on the highest point called Vyas Shikhar. This is an amphitheatre of grand peaks. At this site, you can find a stone 'Views of the Himalayas from Vyas Shikhar' engraved with the directions to the major summits spotted from here. Get engrossed in the tallest peaks, Nanda Devi(7816 meters), Hardeol(7151 meters), Trishul(7120 meters), Chaukhamba(7138 meters), Kedarnath(6940 meters), Dunagiri(7066 meters), Kedardome(6831 meters),  Kalanag(6373 meters), Bandarpunch(6102 meters), Srikantha(6133 meters), Swargarohini Massif( 6252 meters), Kirti Stambh(6270 meters), Nanda Ghunti(6309 meters), Sumeru Parvat(6351 meters) and many more!
    Have your lunch and retrace steps to Koti Kanasar. From here board onto the vehicles that take you back to Dehradun.

    Risk & Respond

    High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by TTH to minimise or address the risks in the best possible way.


    Risk: Altitude Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort.

    Response: If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has as stretcher, fully equipped first aid kit, oxygen cylinders to address the situation.


    Risk: Weather Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favourable.

    Response: The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.


    Risk: Injuries Often, while trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.

    Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a well-equipped first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head and is led to nearest medical centre.


    Risk: Lack of communication devices In the remote areas of the Himalayas, mobile networks do not reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the world of calls, SMSs or watsapps.

    Response: We rely on walkie-talkies and runners to communicate between the campsites and the base camps.
