One of the oldest and most popular treks in India, Kedarkantha trek is the perfect option for beginners and is also considered as the best winter trek in India. This trek has gained its popularity from the fascinating mythological stories and 360 degree views of mesmerizing peaks from the top. Situated in Govind National Park, the trek starts from Sankri- a scenic little village situated deep into the mountains of Himalayas. The 8-hour drive to this village from Dehradun will keep you fascinated as you drive along Yamuna and Tons river.

Kedarkantha trek offers the spellbinding views of Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Draupadi ka Danda peaks from the top as you climb to an altitude of 12,500 ft. As you push yourself to the top and take in the views from the summit, you will be delighted with a feeling of accomplishment. The trek is one of the few treks in India that has so many clearings, offering multiple stops for campsites with eye-catching views. From knee-deep snow in winters to green forest and golden meadows in summer, the trek offers you unique views in each season.
