About Kedarkantha Trek

Kedarkantha Trek Trek is a classic winter trek, perfect for those who are in love with snow. This four days trek has its base camp is at Sankri Village, which takes 7-8 hours of travel from Dehradun. This wonderful trek offers a great experience to the trekkers with a trail though rich forests, snowy tracks, patches of green meadows and some beautiful scenic views all the way. Kedar Kantha Peak is located in Govind National Park of Western Garhwal, surrounded by a number of panoramic river valleys, snow-laden mountains, remotely located small villages with a rich flora-fauna. It is one of the easiest treks in Himalayas to experience the snow covers. Winters snow here sets in the middle of December and lasts till the middle of April. Snow will come across after crossing the height of 10,000 feet and the campsites of this trek boosts magnificent beauty.

The drive from the base camp of this trek (Sankri Village) to Kedar Kantha is one of the most panoramic and picturesque drives in Himalayas which takes you through Mussoorie, Naugaon, Purola, Mori and Naitwar. The snow covered path and the patch of meadows will give you a perfect glance of the Himalayan Crown. Silent and soothing streams with peaceful lakes will treat your hard trekking tiredness, giving you a feeling of being in mother’s lap. If you know skiing, that’s even better. It will help you to get the glance of the heavenly landscape from a good height. Rich forests lamented with snow will give you a pleasant experience and sooth your eyes. Humbleness of the regional people will impress you completely.

Designated to be the residing place of Shiva, the ancient Hindu Lord, the land really looks like heaven. Silence and tranquility of the place will give you such a feeling that you will shy to whisper even. The cosmic sky view, with the sky-knocking peaks will make you feel at least once, that you are on the roof of the earth. There are many mythological stories surrounding Kedar Kantha. It is believed that the temple Kedarnath was originally located here, but while disturbed by the villagers, Pandavas went away from the place to the present Kedarnath location. Local people believe that the place is the residing place of the lord, still now.

Kedarkantha Trekking Tours Highlights

  • Experience huge snow blankets around you in every direction after crossing the mark of 10,000 feet, from middle to December to middle of April.
  • The campsites of the trek are a delight for first time travellers as not all treks have such beautiful campsites like Juda-Ka-Talab, Hargaon and base camp, etc.
  • This less travelled remote route is one of the most exquisite drives in Indian Himalayas.

Best Time to Visit Kedarkantha Trek

April to June (Summer) and October to March (Winter)

In Summer:

Mild weather prevails throughout the summer season. During this time, one can see the clear view of the neighbouring mountains.

In Monsoon:

One should be brave enough to face all the challenges if planning to trek during the monsoon as the roads remain blocked due to landslides. It will be little strenuous, but the scenic view of the mountains is worth all the effort.

In Winter:

From the start, till the end, the trail remains covered with snow, thus, the trek becomes little difficult. Trek looks the best during winters, and indeed, the trek becomes more difficult. Carrying heavy woolens is advised.

Where is the Kedar Kantha?

Kedarkantha is a mountain summit, which is standing tall at an altitude of 3850 m in Garhwal Himalayan ranges. The peak can be reached during any time of the year by crossing Govind National park. One trekkers reach the summit, they will be rewarded with the view of beautiful peaks like Swargarohini (6,252 m), Bandarpunch (6,316 m), Black or Kalanag (6387 m) and Ranglana.
