TIA
I know someone who has been there in May. Didn't say anything about cars.

There is a GMVN guesthouse and Forest Resthouse for accommodation in HKD Valley itself. You can book rooms in GMVN guesthouse online through their website.

Is there any other option for staying? Or should I have to carry tent?

Thanks Krishnapriya for you suggestion.
We completed HKD last month. Few suggestion to IM
1) During our trip one casualty was reported at Borasu pass, subsequently entry was banned. Somehow one trekker group used their political connection (Satpal Maharaj) and managed to allow entry only for HKD. So every body should assure before leaving.
2) GMVN Sankri is handed over to private contractor and is under renovation. GMVN at Osla and HKD Condition is very bad. At GMVN HKD I had advance booking, when we reached there care taker was not available. We finally have to broke the door for our survival. Before leaving for HKD check with locals at Seema/ Osla about care taker where about, otherwise you may be in trouble.

Motorable road upto Taluka was damaged in the midway in June 2018, when I went..So we had to get down and walk through the damaged landslide area and take another Jeep to reach Taluka

Returned from Har Ki doon and Bali pass some time back. If you are planning to camp in Seema, the rainbasera was closed. We went to the GMVN campus where all the camp sites were full. We had to pay extra and stay in a very shabby room in the 1st floor of the GMVN bunglow in Seema. As of June 2018.

My querry is
How difficult is this trek going to be compared to the previous one,and
Is a visit to Ruinsara tal trek worth contemplating realistically speaking?
will be waiting for some advice
Thanks beforehand.
Hi, HKD is average gradient trek. It is much easier than crossing a glacier and going to Tapoban. The only challenge is the distance. You have to cover 14 and 15 km in the first two days of the trek to reach HKD. The camping site is also nice. Ruinsara lake has a lovely landscape around it. It is worth a visit if you want to explore a bit more of the national park and have enough time. I would suggest to stay a extra night at HKD to acclimatize better and head on to Ruinsara taal. The route is a easy gradient.
I had been there last month (June 2018) to HKD and Bali pass. Ruinsara taal is on the way to Balipass. You can check my blogs -

Which date you traveled to Taluka. On 16 June and 21 June it was OK. Both the times we traveled through local vehicle.

Is it mandatory to take a guide to HKD? Someone mentioned this on my meetup thread.
