7 Day 6 Night
Dev Kyara is a high altitude meadow located in the Sankri range of Uttarakhand. Located parallel to the Har ki Dun Valley, Dev Kyara Trek takes you to the massive 4 km wide meadow of Dev Kyara at an altitude of 4100M nestled between the Rupin and Supin Valleys.
This valley was first mentioned by Harish Kapadia in his travel books, after he explored the untouched regions of western Garhwal. Even today this narrow valley is hardly frequented by trekkers; although the locals do visit on religious occasions.
The obra gad is a tributary of the Supin River, and starts below the Ranglana peak before merging with the Supin River below Jakhol village. The obra gad valley is beautiful with the very scarcely attempted Ranglana peak (6000m +) at its head and the noisy obra gad flowing endlessly. As we progress into the valley, its flowers and biodiversity is visible. The cherries growing abundantly are a feast for the merry trekkers.
The highest point in the trek is the dev kyara bugyal which is worshipped by the locals. This campsite is the highlight of the trek and it’s very rewarding to camp here an extra night. One can also cross the pass on the ridge on the left bank of obra and enter into the beautiful harkidun valley. However this requires more number of days.
