All About It
  • 5 Days  4 Nights 

Kedarkantha is such a popular winter trek that it would be apt to be called the Queen of Winter Treks. Knee-deep snow in winter, mesmerising view from the top, and beautiful and easy trails make it popular among trekkers. The ‘easy on endurance’ trail goes through the thick pine forests of Govind National Park. The views from the top are worth climbing to an altitude of 12,500 ft. Kedarkantha trek will give you an inimitable view of the cosmic sky, lush meadows, snow paths, charming villages, scented pine forests, sky-knocking peaks, tranquil rivers, and some mythological story whispers.

Experience the lovely campsites, where every site is unique in its own way and does not match the beauty of any other campsites on the journey. Get a chance to camp around frozen Juda ka Talab which was once a place for meditation of Lord Shiva. Experience walking in the middle of the night, the head torches lighting the way, and watching the sunrise from the top of a mountain before you reach Summit.
