A fantastic introductory trek in the lower Himalayas for beginners. Part of the Rajaji National Park , Benog Sanctuary is situated near Clouds End and is home to some exotic species of birds and wildlife. The adventure sees us camping in the small quaint villages of Dudhli and Dobhighat and a trek through Benog Wildlife Sanctuary. We walk to the Benog top where a prominent temple is located. You can be assured of some stunning views of Doon Valley and Yamuna below in addition to snow capped peaks of Bandarpunch and Chaukhamba. A good way to spend a weekend of adventure!
On this holiday we will go up to an altitude of no more than 2200m. Therefore, altitude is not a problem. It is an easy trek with no more than 4-5 hour walk on both days. It is the perfect itinerary for anyone looking for a weekend camping and also, beginners looking for an introductory trek. Families can also consider this trek to take their near ones on an adventure. You will be advised by the UFO guide to rest and keep your body hydrated, walk slow and steady and eat well. There is fair bit of walking to be done every day, and we would encourage you to do a bit of walking/running and breathing exercises to enjoy this trek. A decent level of fitness will help you enjoy the trekking holiday better.
After an early morning breakfast, we set off for the village of Koti. After a briefing by the guide and team we set for our trek to Dudhli village. The trail passes through beautiful forest sections with view of the Doon Valley to the south. The train is mostly flat with some gradual ascent. On arrival we set up camp. After lunch, you can laze about the campsite and relax.
Post breakfast, we start our trek to Benog Sanctuary. Trekking towards Cloud End, we make our way through the sanctuary to Benog Top at 2200m where a temple for Jwala Devi is situated.
