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 finishing our breakfast, we will drive from Sankri to Taluka. The ride is a little rough in spots. The gravel route leading to the start of the walk is located in Taluka. The stroll is made more enjoyable by the sound of the Supin River crashing over rapids on each side of us, as well as the walnut, pine, and other trees that provide shade. On our route, we are often greeted by locals who are out and about. The trail goes through a several creeks, all of which eventually flow into Supin. After a couple of hours of hiking, the hamlet of Gangad can be seen to the left, located on the other side of the river. We go on with our trip, and after a little over an hour of walking, the picturesque town of Osla comes into view. Seema is a small community that may be found on the other side of the river from Osla. We either put up our tents here or make arrangements to stay in a hut with a local family. On the same day, trekkers may choose between spending the night in a homestay or in a camp after completing an 11-kilometer hike to Dhatmir village or Dharkot camp.
On the third day of your journey, you will make your way ahead to Vishkhopri, which is located 7 km distant and will take you between 4-5 hours to reach. You will arrive at Vishkhopri by way of the hamlet of Dharkot, which is likely to be the last settlement you pass through on your walk. A large number of deodar trees may be seen dotting the landscape of the beautiful meadow that is Vishkhopri. What a lovely setting for some much-needed rest. Along the way of your walk, you will not only view trees, birds, animals, woods, and meadows, but you will also see mountains covered in snow. In a shorter amount of time, you will arrive at the base of Vishkhopri. There is where you should pitch your tents. If you get there early, you'll have more time to spend with your friends, and you'll be able to take advantage of the beautiful weather to enjoy the outdoors. Following the conclusion of supper, you will retire to your tents for the night.
The journey from Vishkhopri to Rashi Camp will take place on the fourth day of your trip. Rashi Camp is located 8 km away, and getting there will take you anything between 4-5 hours. Because there are meadows throughout the whole of this hike, it is far more breathtaking than other hikes. The journey will be made more interesting by the fact that you will see Batagor, as well as some wildflowers, colourful flowers, and many other things. In addition to that, you will need to use logs to go over a creek, which is already an exciting adventure in and of itself. You won't have much longer until you get to Rashi Camp, where you'll spend the night. From Rashi Camp, you have the opportunity to find the Manju Kanta Pass, which has a stunning appearance. You will be able to relax after a satisfying meal and some quality time spent with others.
And now, the day has come when you will arrive at your last goal, which is the Maldaru Lake. After spending 6-7 hours travelling, you will arrive to Maldaru Camp, which is located 12 km away from Rashi Camp. This journey must be undertaken with extreme caution. It is to everyone's advantage to climb alongside their teammates if possible. You may apply that saying to this situation as well since it is known that the most beautiful trip comes after the most arduous one. This specific walk will provide you with a one-of-a-kind adventure that you will adore more than anything else. After arriving to Maldaru Lake, you will be able to observe a significant quantity of Phen Kamal and Brahma Kamal, which are the official flowers of the state of Uttarakhand. These flowers have a certain beauty that captivates everyone's attention. You may also have a sight of Bandarpoonch peak, Black Peak, and Swargarohini from the vantage point of Maldaru Lake. The vista is breathtaking and is certain to leave you speechless for a little time. You can even make out the different tones of the sky in the water of Maldaru Lake since it is so transparent. The beauty of the lake is enhanced by the many snow-covered mountains that surround it. After you have finished pitching your tents, you may go on an excursion to learn more about the area and then retire to your sleeping bags. It will be a wonderful experience to spend the night at this location.
As the sun rises above Bandarpunch and Swargarohini, it is time to move on from this campground at Maldaru Lake and make your way towards Seema. As you start your descent, you will be treated to beautiful vistas of snow-capped mountains in the distance. Travel into the thick woodland; the drop will be severe from this point, so use extreme care as you move forward. The large meadow known as Seema is where you will be setting up tent for the day.When you reach the Seema campground, put up your tent in the peace and quiet of the surrounding woodland. After a fantastic meal, take some time to relax here, and then sleep in your tent for the night.
From Seema, the starting point of the trek, begin hiking in the direction of Taluka. Continue along the same route through the verdant forests, and keep an eye out for birds and langurs as you go.When you get to Taluka, there will be cars waiting for you, and you can then relax and take in the sights for the 11-kilometer trip to Sankri.
This is the last day of the trek to Ruinsara Lake, and we will depart Sankri in the morning to make our way to Dehradun by the late afternoon.
