Harsil Valley : Seeking solitudes in Himalayas

Tripoto
25th Oct 2018

               Harsil Valley is a gem I discovered on my way to Gangotri. Solitude, peace, serenity, beauty, culture, hidden from the crowds, this place fulfils all my requirements. I was headed out to a trek to the infamous Kalindi Khal and had a few spare days before the trek. I had planned to acclimatise in Gangotri before I start for the trek. While I was driving from Uttarkashi, 30km before Gangotri, a couple of red-roofed buildings surrounded with deodar trees caught my eye. I took a U-turn, crossed a bridge on the Bhagirathi river to enter into this remote village.
