    TREK OVERVIEW

    Get ready for the Kedarkantha Trek, a summit trek in Uttrakhand, India's top most and exciting trek. Peak is often regarded as the top snow-trekking location on the planet, with its pine tree-lined slopes and a blanket of white snow. The ascent to this mountain pass in Uttarakhand, situated at an elevation of 12,500 feet above sea level, presents explorers with a wide range of difficulties. If you're looking for a great adventure in pristine wilderness, go no further than our Winter Snow Trek. Beautiful landscapes, dense forests, pastures, and even snow trails await you during this hike.

    Kedarkantha Summit is located in Uttarkashi's Govind wildlife National sanctuary park, which is why you should know about it. Several picturesque river valleys surround this stunning hill; one of them is the upper valley of Garhwal, home to a community that has called this area home since the Mahabharata era. Kedarkantha is the best winter snow trek in India, and it's easy enough for first-timers to tackle. It's a Himalayan adventure everyone should have at least once. Between the first week of November and the last week of April, when the snowfall is at its heaviest, this is the best time to make the journey. After about the middle of November, snow begins covering the magnificent campsites on the Kedarkantha trek.

    It's true that every Himalayan hike has its own unique charm. You may get a dose of nature on a trek that you just can't get in the city, and you can push yourself to new mental and physical boundaries. This Himalayan hike is one of the few that will force you to see nature in all its pristine glory. It has everything a hiker could want—from snowy peaks to lush forests and ice lakes to a pleasingly delicious peak. The climb to the peak is the most challenging and rewarding part of the expedition. From the Sankri base camp at the bottom to the peak at the top, you may take in all of these sights.

    DAY WISE ITINERARY

    Day 1 - Dehradun-to-Sankri drive

    Reporting Location - Prince Chown, Near Railway Station (Dehradun)
    Reporting Time - 06:00 AM to 09:00 AM daily

    • The trip to Sankri, which is situated on National Highway 123, is worth it. Traveling by car from Dehradun to Sankri is over 200 km via Mussoorie, and you'll pass through some breathtaking valleys and woods.
    • In about 22 kilometers before reaching Sankri, hikers will see breathtaking views of the Himalayas and lush vegetation. Govind National Park, famous for its abundant plant life, is also nearby. Some of the flora in this park can be found nowhere else in the country.

    Day 2 - Sankri-to-Juda ka Talab Trek

    • On day 2, you'll trek to 9,100 feet Juda Ka Talab. You'll cover 5km by afternoon, although this depends on the trekker's ability.
    • Get yourself set for an exciting array of new experiences along the trail. Ice and slush may disturb you when trekking, but Madtrek Adventure's guides will help you.
    • The trip begins in a pine and maple forest and rises through wildlife and fields. As you climb, you'll see huts in the fields.
    • While trekking, you'll view a goliath lake on one side and lush pine & oak backwoods on the other. Lukewarm water surrounds the lake, while the rest is colder.
    • In winter, ice replaces water, making for a beautiful sight. This lake features a natural tunnel that supplies water to communities.
    • You'll climb bridges and find Himalayan Languor on this journey. These cautious animals are rarely seen.
    • This region has boars, hares, and martens. You'll spend the night in a camp where you can enjoy nature.

    Day 3 - Trekking from Juda-ka-Talab to the base of Kedarkantha (Lohasu)

    • A sunrise is something to behold first thing in the morning; it will leave you speechless. The next day, we'll set off for Kedar Kantha base, which is 3,400 meters (11,250 ft) above sea level.
    • The distance between Jadu Ka Talab and Kedar Kantha Base is over 4 kilometres, and it takes 2.5 hours to go that distance at a brisk pace. You should know that Jadu Ka Talab is a beautiful lake encircled by pine trees, which often freezes during the winter, and which also turns out to be a site for adventures and enjoyable activities for the trekkers.
    • As you climb higher, the trail will get progressively steeper. Pay close attention while your hike leader teaches you several techniques for navigating snowy terrain. He may also advise you on the appropriate size of your steps.
    • Once again, your hiking will begin in a thick grove of pine and oak trees. The path winds its way between the cliff faces as well. At an elevation of 10,400 feet, you'll begin to see snow trails that will lead you to breathtaking vistas of the natural world.
    • Before reaching the base camp, all hikers can watch the breathtaking views of numerous arc-shaped mountains that are covered with snow, including Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Swargarohini, and Ranglana, which stand with great pride in the lap of Mother Nature.
    • Dinner tonight will be provided exclusively in the comfort of your tents.

    Day 4 - Early Morning trek from Kedarkantha's base to its summit and back down to Juda-Ka-Talab camp

    • Since you'll be climbing Kedar Kantha on day 4, you should expect a rather long day. Today you will hike almost 6 kilometres (from 12,500 feet to 11,250 feet) over the course of 7 hours. You should be aware that the trail will be more challenging because of this.
    • While hiking, you will be able to take in the stunning natural scenery and magnificent views of various mountain ranges, including the Rupin. Local legend has it that when builders attempted to construct the Kedarnath temple atop the peak, they were interrupted by the sound of an animal—an auspicious sign of impending divine intervention—and so the peak was renamed Kedar Kantha.
    • They worked on the statue of Shiva until they reached his neck; in Hindi, the neck is referred to as a Kanth, and Kedar is just one of Shiva's many titles. For this reason, we refer to it as Kedarkantha.
    • Kedar Kantha is a great place to take in the sights of Bandarpooch, Kalanaag, Swargarohini, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. Once you reach the peak, the breathtaking scenery will help you find emotional equilibrium while also leaving you in a state of awe, and on the same day, we'll begin our journey back to Juda-Ka-Talab camp.
    • You will spend the night in the campgrounds, which will provide you with stunning views of the surrounding valleys and natural scenery.

    Day 5 - Trek from JUda-Ka-Talab camp to Sankri and departure from Sankri to Dehradun

    • On day five, hikers will start their descent from Juda-Ka-Talab Camp to Sankri. After starting at an altitude of 8900 feet, we will be bringing ourselves down to an elevation of 6400 feet. It will take you at least 4 hours to hike down the 6.2-kilometre-long track at a leisurely pace.
    • Today is the day that you must say goodbye to the majestic Himalayas and other snowy mountain ranges as we return to Sankri. The distance between checkpoints isn't very far, so the journey shouldn't be too taxing on you.
    • After breakfast, you'll pack up your belongings and head along a paved route that will lead you to Sankri.
    • Today is the day that you must say goodbye to the majestic Himalayas and other snowy mountain ranges as we return to Sankri. The distance between checkpoints isn't very far, so the journey shouldn't be too taxing on you.
