About Kedarkantha

Kedarkantha is one of the most sought winter treks in India among all other treks. This is considered to be one of the best treks for beginners from all across India. The majestic mountains, the oak trees, pine trees, white bed of snow all over the place is so serene to the eyes that it can leave anyone in awe. Located at an altitude of 3800 mts. this beautiful place is filled with magnificence and enchanting nature. The climb to the peak of Kedarkantha starts from a small village called Sankri. There are a total of 13 peaks of the Himalayan range visible from the Kedarkantha peak.

 

The best part of the entire trek is its summit. Although the trek on the day of the summit is not that easy one for the beginners is because it starts becoming very steep as we get closer to the peak, but none of the trekkers has ever complained anything after reaching the summit. The beautiful panoramic view from 12,500 feet above sea level is mind-blowing. The freezing breeze adds more thrill to the entire trek during winter.

Why Kedarkantha is one of the best winter treks?

Kedarkantha trek gives you the unsurpassed beauty, magnificent views of charming villages, meadows, snow paths, a dramatic landscape dotted with lovely lakes, mountains, tranquil rivers, and the great Himalayan peaks.  It also offers trekkers an opportunity to see what life feels like where there are zero connectivity and no link with the outside world. As you come closer to the mountain you learn to live in the moments.

This trek is also regarded as the best trek because Kedarkantha is covered with snow from December to April. The meadow is covered with a white fine sheet of snow which makes it more mesmerizing for trekkers to summit the peak. Even the experienced trekkers do not hesitate to trek to the mountain again the next year.

 

Those who have been to this trek will definitely fall for its beauty. People always refer to this trek to the new trekkers as this is an easy to moderate level trek and those who have never been to any trek can actually feel what trek in the Himalayas are like and can prepare them accordingly for the next treks.
