Kedarkantha Trek

"Every travel with WANDERERS is an experience of a life time."

Kedarkantha Trek is one of the greatest winter trek. It is probably the best trek one can take for experiencing Snow in India. The trek provides a great opportunity for trekkers to experience the scenic beauty and life of remote villages in Garhwal Himalaya.

Kedarkantha Trek lies in the Govind Wild life Sanctuary and National Park in Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. The drive to Sankri (From where the Kedarkantha trek starts) is one of the most picturesque drives in the Himalaya through Mussoorie, Barkot, Purola, Mori, Netwar, Motwat along the Tons River. It is also an experience of a lifetime as you get to summit the Kedarkantha Peak at 3800 Meters.

Day 1 Dehradun to Sankri (2000+ M) (drive 7-8 hrs)

Day 3 Juda Ka Talab (2900 M) to Kedarkantha Base (3400 M) (Trek 4-5 Hours)
Post breakfast we begin the trek towards Kedar Kantha base, our destination for the day. The route is beautiful with vast fields of snow and patches of green in between them. Views are open on all sides and will keep one busy with the camera. This site has been chosen keeping in mind the safety aspect and is a wonderful place to set up a camp. Enjoy hot lunch and explore the area.

Day 4 Kedarkantha Base (3400 M) to Kedarkantha Peak (3800 M) and back to Base (3400 M) (Trek 6-7 Hours)
Today is going to be a long day and a trek up to the summit of Kedarkantha peak. We will, depending upon the snow conditions select the best route leading to the summit. We will start quite early so that we are walking on hard snow while climbing up. It will take anywhere between 4 to 5 hours to get to the top. Have our lunch with amazing views of snow clad peaks of Yamunotri and Gangotri ranges. After spending some quality time at the peak we trek back to nearby camping site at the Kedarkantha Base.
