All those who live for the rush of adrenaline would probably agree that the ascent is made even more enjoyable by the sensation of having to keep going. Another reason for this trek's popularity and anticipation among travellers from all over the globe is that it passes through some very stunning lush woods.

Trek Plan

The beautiful village of Sankri serves as the departure point for the Kedarkantha Trek. The road trip from Dehradun to Sankri is about 200 km long and travels through mountainous terrain on twisting roads. If you reserve your transportation with us, our cars will pick you up at the Dehradun I.S.B.T. terminal at 7 in the morning. You should plan to get at Sankri about sunset time. During this incredible road trip, we will go via Mussoorie as well as many other charming towns, where we will be treated to a spectacular view of the lush vegetation and rolling hills. We are going to take a trip that follows the banks of the River Tonnes, which will ultimately morph into the River Supin farther downstream. By the time it becomes dark, we'll arrive in the Sankri. As a result of the several treks that are located in the surrounding region, Sankri has developed into a busy centre for hikers over the course of the last few years. There is a breathtaking panorama of the setting sun across the valley from where you will be staying, which is either a hotel or a guest home. Dinner will be given, and your trek guide will give you a comprehensive briefing on all of the aspects of the hike that you will be experiencing.

After a nutritious breakfast, we will get an early start on our trek in the morning. The Kedarkantha route will lead you into a calm and peaceful grove of towering pines as soon as we start walking on the track. As you make your way up into the mountains and take in the breathtaking scenery, the enchantment of this path will begin to become more apparent. Depending on the time of year, you may encounter snow while you go along this path. During the depths of winter, the route will be covered with snow from the moment you set foot on it. Following a few of hours of foot travel, we will arrive at a Dhaba. We'll take a break and have some snacks here. As you make your way up, the lovely oak trees at the Juda-Ka-Talab campground will greet you and invite you to stay there. There were once two smaller lakes, but they eventually came together to create one bigger lake known as Juda-ka-Talab. This location will serve as the overnight camping spot. When we get there, we'll take some time to rest and unwind with a steaming cup of tea before continuing on.

The Kedarkantha Base Camp is our destination for today's hiking adventure. We'll be trekking through some thick pine trees as well as some open pastures. The ascent gets off to a brisk start at the Juda Ka Taal campground, but after that, it eases off and becomes a more moderate climb all the way to the Kedarkantha Base Camp. You will be able to obtain a glimpse of the snow-covered Kedarkantha Summit that encompasses 180 degrees from the route. We will be out on the trail for close to three hours. This brief day is specifically designed to give your body the much-needed rest it need before the highly anticipated summit day. This day will also help you naturally acclimatise to the high altitude, so be sure to keep your body hydrated and consume healthy food. Acclimatising to the high altitude will help you more tomorrow, so use today to your advantage. After a quick recap of the previous day's summit activities, we are going to have an early supper and then turn in for the night. At three in the morning, we will go on the journey to Kedarkantha Peak and begin our ascent.

This is going to be the most challenging and exciting day of the walk we are going to be on. Around three in the morning, we will wake up and begin preparing for the trek to the peak of Kedarkantha. We will bring all of the essential gear with us. It is almost certain to be a chilly day, so make sure you are dressed enough to withstand the wind chill on the walk up to the peak. In order to obtain the greatest views of the sun rays striking the snow-capped peaks all around us, we are going to make it our goal to reach the top before dawn. As you make your way to the top of the mountain, you will leave the trees behind you. Both the path and the surroundings are certain to captivate your attention. As we get closer to the top, the vistas will start to open up, which should encourage you to keep going until we reach the top. When you reach the top of the mountain, you will be able to see the whole Himalayan range in every direction.  At the very top, there is a shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. Mountains such as Swargarohini and Bandarpoonch are seen from this vantage point. In addition to these mountain ranges, you may see the Yamunotri ranges and the Gangotri ranges, as well as the Chanshal pass and the Kinner Kailash ranges. After having rested for a while above the mountain, we will make our way back down to the base camp and begin our descent. At the Kedarkantha Base Camp, we'll have a delicious hot lunch, and then, after taking in the breathtaking views of the mountain, we'll hike back down to the Juda Ka Taal campground.

We are going to have an early breakfast, and then we are going to immediately begin our descent back to the Sankri. During the coldest months of winter, the path may be covered with verglas and might be treacherous. In order to prevent any slips, falls, and injuries, you will need to use extreme caution at all times. When we get to Sankri, your ride back to Dehradun will be waiting for you and it will be ready to go as soon as we get there. You should plan to get in Dehradun about 9 o'clock at night. You will be dropped off at ISBT Dehradun. It is time to say goodbye to your fellow trekkers and go off in our own directions, taking with us a wealth of lovely memories and experiences that will stick with us forever.
