Wildlife of Raheel Got
The Dweepdhar Valley and its surrounding forests are extremely rich in flora and fauna. Raheel Got especially, being located next to the jungle stream and surrounding by a dense treeline, attracts many wildlife species. Commonly spotted wildlife in the valley include Himalayan Ibex, Red Fox, Himalayan Weasel, Indian Porcupine, Brown Bear, Jackal, Barking Deer, Himalayan Palm Civet, Musk Deers, Jungle Cats and Himalayan Tahrs.
Snow Leopards have also been spotted from time to time in the valley, however they remain confined to the upper reaches of the mountain passes nearby.
Birding is an especially exciting activity for nature lovers on a Himalayan break near Raheel Got as the valley is home to numerous species of birds that are easily spotted in the forest and around waterholes and streams. These include Himalayan Magpies, Scarlet Minivets, Himalayan Bulbuls, Slaty-Headed Parakeets, Great Barbets, Black headed Jays, Redstarts, Whistling Thrushes, Himalayan Griffons, Himalayan woodpeckers and many more.
The valley remains mostly isolated except for the few settlements near Rawa Village. The meadows and pathways on the trail are usually walked on by Gaddis who take their flock for grazing to higher pastures through these routes. This also adds to the adventure as during a summer Himalayan trek here, you will be able to witness flora and fauna that remains mostly undisturbed.

How to reach Raheel Got
Travelling to Raheel Got will require a bit of forward planning and organisation at the end of the traveller. The nearest Railway Station to Raheel Got is Pathankot which is 118kms away from the base of the trek. The nearest Airport to Raheel Got is the Dharamshala airport at Gaggal which is 54kms away. Dharamshala happens to be the nearest town for the Raheel Got trek and one can easily book a Volvo from Delhi to Dharamshala and then take a taxi or local bus to Ghera which happens to be the last road head for the Valley.
The Raheel Got trek begins from Rawa, near Ghera Village and will encompass a total of 32kms walking (to and fro) and a height gain of 2000mts overall. Two camps are usually required on the Raheel Got Trek and it will take about 5 Nights/6Days to complete (Rawa to Rawa including a separate day for acclimatization). Since the trail winds its way along the jungle stream and will take you through dense forests and untouched wilderness, we recommend that you plan for the trek with an experienced adventure tour operator beforehand. It is unwise and often dangerous to venture out on Himalayan treks alone and without professional, experienced guides.
