About Kedarkantha

One of the most popular winter treks in Uttarakhand, Kedarkantha Trek is a trekker’s delight and rookie’s rite of passage due to its relative ease. Covered in sparkling snow during winters, this trek offers a breath-taking view of the majestic Himalayan peaks. It also offers trekkers a unique opportunity to experience life in the remotest of villages in dead winter!

Kedarkantha trek gives you the unsurpassed beauty, magnificent views of charming villages, meadows, snow paths, the dramatic landscape dotted with lovely lakes, mountains, tranquil rivers and the great Himalayan peaks. The Kedarkantha trek also provides a great opportunity to view the scenic beauty and feel the experience of the life of remote villages of Uttarakhand Himalayas.

DAY 1: DEHRADUN TO SANKRI (2000M) 9HR DRIVE

The journey will start at 7.00 am from Dehradun Railway Station to Sankri and it will take around 9 hrs. We will drive via Dehradun and Mussoorie, alongside the Yamuna and also passes by beautiful pine forests. On reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek. Overnight stay at Sankri.

DAY 2: SANKRI TO JUDA KA TALAAB (TREK 3-4 HR)

After having breakfast, we will set out on a moderate hike which, for

the most part, goes through the forest. We will walk to Saur village

and then climb up till we reach a small pond, Juda-ka-Talab, which is

frozen during winters. As we continue climbing up, we will get fleeting glimpses of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks. One more hour of hiking will take us to the meadows where we will camp overnight, in tents

DAY 3: JUDA KA TALAAB TO KEDARKANTHA BASE CAMP (TREK 2-3 HR)

Kedar Kantha base becomes our destination for the day and we start for it post breakfast. Today will be a busy day for the shutterbugs as the trek route is beautiful with open views on all sides and vast snow fields decorated with green patches. However, our destination is even more impressive. Imagine a vast open, snow fields, the size of two football fields, a stream running by and misty mountains forming the background − this is the Kedar Kantha base where we will camp overnight in tents. We told you it was impressive!

DAY 4: SUBMIT KEDARKANTHA PEAK AND BACK TO JUDA KA TALAAB

Now imagine, if the Kedar Kantha base is that stunning, what will the view from the summit be like? The distance to the summit is not long but the climb is steep and depending upon the snow conditions then, we will pick the best route − and it will take about 2−3 hours. As for the view from the top − you will be able to see all the mountains of the Yumnotri, Gangotri and the Kinner Kailash range, plus the valleys. Next, we will descend the

peak and trek all the way down to Juda−ka−Talab or an alternate campsite, depending on which route we choose. Overnight in tents.

DAY 5: JUDA KA TALAAB TO SANKRI (DEPARTURE TO DEHRADUN )

We will return today after an early Breakfast. We will reach Sankri at around 11 o’clock. After reaching Sankri, we will board the vehicles and start driving back towards Dehradun. Arrive in Dehradun by around late afternoon 6.00 PM.
