About This Place
If anyone is looking for a winter trek, this trek is one to go for with snow easily available till April and magnificent view of the great Himalayas with difficulty level moderate enough to enable the first time trekkers to visit the place. The highlights of the trek includes one of the best campsites with each location offering a different view of the nature and a good snow to cherish which starts at 10,000ft. The glamour starts right from the time when one takes a drive from Dehradun to its base camp. One of the least travelled road, not a metaphor, in the area surrounded with forest cover and lakes. The trek passes through apple orchards, rhododendron trees, dense forests; meadows covered with snow and surrounded by Pine trees which is also a resting site. For skiing enthusiasts, the trek offers good but small patches to ski on while on the trek. The top of Kedarkantha offers 360 degree view of frosty peaks of Himalayas with Dhauladhar range, Har ki Dun valley, Rupin Valley to name a few. While descending from Kedarkantha, one comes across Judas ka Talab, a picturesque location with a small pond surrounded by tall Pine Trees and good views of Swargarohini and Har ki Dun valley.
