Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) invites you for the trek to Devkyara and Har Ki Dun valleys in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalayas.
ABBF is India’s leading adventure sports not-for-profit that caters to Persons with Disability (PwD) as well as able-bodied adventurers. The Foundation works across five sports areas including Trekking/Climbing/Mountaineering, scuba diving, paragliding and Cycling, and facilitates opportunities for people to come together and experience the thrill of adventure, independent of disability.
In April/May 2020, ABBF is organizing a trek to the Devkiyara and Har Ki Dun valleys in the Indian Himalayas for people with and without disabilities. It involves over 60kms of trekking over a period of 13 days. Devkiyara and Har Ki Dun are two extremely beautiful valleys in the Garhwal region of the state of Uttarakhand. We start our journey from the small town of Sankri from which you can view the Swargarohini mountain range.
Devkyara is at a height of 4100 metres located between the Rupin and Supin valleys. It is a 4kms long grassland with fantastic views of Ranglana and Daowdo Peaks as well as some un-named peaks and local flora.
Har ki Dun at a height of 3645 metres is also known as ‘the valley of the gods’. It is the main source of the Yamuna river which flows through this valley. The ‘Himalayan Monal’ which is the state bird can be spotted here as well. This valley also offers the best views of the Jaundhar glacier as well as the famous Himalayan peaks of Swargarohini I,II and III, Bandarpoonch and Black Peak.
This is a great opportunity to explore, enjoy and experience the mountains together, forge new friendships and strengthen old ones, observe and understand life in the Himalayan countryside and form unbreakable emotional bonds with locals and travellers alike.
You can join as an able-bodied or disabled member, or as an able-bodied guide to a disabled member. To sum it up, you can join as anyone looking to lend a voice to the cause of inclusivity. It’s a guarantee that this excursion will be right up there amongst some of the best experiences of your life.
