Detailed overview

The Kedarkantha Trek in Uttarakhand has a maximum altitude of 12,000 feet and can be traversed by beginner level trekkers. This six-day trek is best undertaken during the winter months of December through to April when large, pine forests and flat plain lands are covered with a thick blanket of sparkling, white snow.

Small, cosy little campsites are dotted here and there along the Kedarkantha Trekking route. All the campsites sit at the centre of a ring of snow-capped mountains. Snuggling up in a warm tent, or outside under the starry night sky, is essential to completing any Himalayan trekking experience.

With picturesque snow-clad mountains, sparkling, frozen lakes and a myriad of rich, alpine flora, the Kedarkantha Trek promises to impress upon trekkers the best of the Himalayas.
