Lakhamandal is an ancient Hindu temple complex, situated in the Jaunsar-Bawar region of Dehradun district in the state of Uttarakhand. The temple is dedicated to lord Shiva. This temple is popular among the Shakti Cult, who believe that a visit to this temple shrine will end their misfortunes. In the midst one can enjoy the lunch break at the popular eateries having some local food and homemade spices.As we procide all the mesmerizing views will be in your memories forever . The expected time to reach Sankri is 5 PM but since in some areas the roads are a little bumpy and rough, the time can be a little longer. However on reaching the destination one can check in to the prior booked hotel and our representative can help with the check in formalities. After freshening up, since the evening is free for leisure one can enjoy indoors and relax or can set out to explore the beautiful Sankri village where there are local shops and small market selling mostly daily goods and a collection of few dhabas. The BSNL network is quite erratic here so getting the phone lines can be a little difficult. However the scenic beauty of the setting sun on the Greater Himalayas from Sankri is a fabulous sight to savor. One can have dinner at the hotel premises or can enjoy dinner at the dhabas to taste some local flavors and experience the cuisine of the area. Overnight stay at the hotel.

Though the tour starts from Dehradun but the trekking trip commences from Sankri only. Having an early start after a healthy breakfast at the hotel it’s a journey straight towards Taluka which is based at an altitude of 2,100 Kms/7,000 feet. It’s a 12 kms car journey and the approximate 14 trek to Taluka. The journey begins by moving out of Sankri village through an extension called Sor. Once the village is crossed the road takes a wide curve and climbs sharply. Moving along the stream this is the road that moves towards the Har ki doon. The initial climb would be climbing several bridges through dense forest trees and thick carpet of maple and pine leaves all brown in color. It’s an exquisite vision and a pictorial view that leaves all mesmerized. The trail is wide and one can hear the sounds of running streams all through but may not be in view till much further. On the way one can view remote villages where women and kids are found carrying bundles of wooden logs, wooden sticks and dry leaves to utilize them for household cooking and setting up night fire. While crunching the dried maple and oak leaves on the way up one can also view Himalayan Languars swinging from one branch of trees to another. Though they are somewhat a shy animal it’s difficult to have a gallant view of them as they move quickly from the vision’s range. Apart from this, boars, martens and hares can also be spotted in this region. After we have crossed the region and absorbing the beautyful view our journy will end in cheludgar near osla village.

It's a beatuful walk to smiatra from osla village and a mesmerizing view all over. after the long walk the treckers can rest for the day in their camp and get rested for the next day.
