Trek To Hatu Peak, Narkanda

Last Updated:21 May 2009 1 Comments

Rated #1 out of 6 attractions in Narkanda

Though there is a narrow road up to the Hatu Peak but trekking to the peak has its own thrills and charms. A trek to Hatu Peak is popular one and in fact many people do it for fun and to test their fitness levels. One can use the road or a mix of road and short cut trails to reach the summit.

The trek to the Hatu Peak is through a mixed forest of blue pine, fir, oak, rhododendron and deodar.
The views from the peak are spectacular. There is a small temple of Hatu Mata at the peak. There is a newly constructed beautiful wooden temple right next to the old temple. There are hardly any shops along the route, so it is good to carry water and snacks.

Trekking to Hatu Peak, basic info:
Distance: 6 km
Time: 3 hrs
When to go: May – June & Sept.- Nov.

There is a motorable if narrow road going all the way upto Hatu Peak (3130m AMSL). For those who are not pucca trekkers, it is a good idea to drive up and walk down rather than to walk up! Halfway up or down, is a picturesque small pond and a mud cottage used by Gaddi shepherds in season. From Hatu Peak there is a walking track going to the Jau Bagh meadows, about half hour walk. The new Hatu temple on the peak, is under construction and should be consecrated in 2011. In clear weather, you will get 360 degree views of the snow clad Himalayan peaks from the summit. The Hatu slopes host beautiful Himalayan wildflowers, ferns, birds, butterflies, monkeys and if you are really lucky you may see deer. Worth packing your picnic hamper and spending a day here.
