Hi all,

We are a group of three currently having a wonderful time in Rajasthan and hoping to do some trekking in Uttarakhand. We are on a tight schedule: we arrive in Rishikesh on the 12th and must be back in Delhi by the morning of the 19th at the latest.
Does anyone have any recommendations for good treks in the area that can be done in that sort of time-frame?

Thanks for your help.

You have plenty of time to do some good treks, but would you be doing long treks or short ones? And would you like to camp or just return back to comfort after a hard days trek?
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

You can try 1. Har-Ki-Dun or 2. Gaumukh - Tapovan or 3. Valley of Flowers

All these can be done with limited planning other than Gaumukh - Tapovan where a permit is required

Har ki Doon is a very good suggestion !
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Thanks so much everyone! I think har-ki-dun might be the one for us. Can't wait!

Area after Mori is prone to landslides. In fact, the whole road had been wiped out few years back and no vehicles were able to reach Sankri. It is raining heavily for the past few days so be careful and plan in a way so that you have two extra days after trek.

The road is closed as of now due to landslides after incessant rains the past five days. Better to look for something that you can do locally from Rishikesh or you might be caught in road blocks anywhere else.
