Overview

Kedarkantha Trek is such a well-known winter trek that it would be appropriate to dub it “Queen of Winter Treks.” Winters with knee-deep snow, a mesmerising view from the summit, and attractive and easy trails make it a popular destination for trekkers. The ‘mild on endurance’ trail traverses the dense pine forests of Govind National Park. The vistas from the summit make the ascent to an altitude of 3,800 metres worthwhile. The Kedarkantha trek will provide you with an unparalleled view of the cosmos, verdant meadows, snow paths, quaint villages, fragrant pine forest, sky-scraping peaks, tranquil rivers, and mythological tales.

Complete Itinerary of Kedarkantha Trek

The drive from Dehradun to Sankri is an enchanting hill drive of 8 hours stretching over a 192 Km ride via Mussoorie, Damta, Naugaon, Purola, Mori, and Naitwar. You will see the beautiful valleys and forest cover throughout the journey. Sankri is a little village within the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand and the last road head to Govind Wildlife Sanctuary. Stay will be in a Home Stay or Camp on sharing basis. The trail will commence the next morning at 07:00 AM with breakfast and a brief session of the Kedarkantha trek by our Universal Camper team lead. The cab will be arranged at an additional cost from Dehradun.

Initially, the trek from Sankri village to Juda Ka Talab will give you an altitude rise of about 2700 ft., this is about 4-5 hours of the trek through the dense forest trees and the thick carpet of maple and pine leaves all brown in color and witness the captivating beauty of nature. The trail goes through Saud village and which is a mild climb. Juda Ka Talab campsite will be surrounded by tall pine and oak trees and mountain slopes. Camp here for an overnight stay nearby the pond call “Juda ka Talab”and enjoy the serenity scattered around this place with evening sunset and glittering sunrise in the morning.

Today’s trail is short and again begins through dense forests of pine and oak trees only and through the steep ridge and much more dense areas, it takes 2-3 hours to reach the open highlands below the summit. This is one of the greatest stretches in this trek as the natural beauty is unbelievable and promises to depart behind an unforgettable reminiscence. As you move ahead into the forest abruptly at the end of forest trails you begin to see an extensive meadow stretching in front of the mighty Dhauladhar Ranges. This camping site has tremendous picturesque views and is the main highlight of the trek. You can roam around this place without any difficulty and can soak all the fresh tidings of nature's gift. Camp here for  overnight.

It is a long day today, but the excitement of the journey and conquering the peak would be far greater and much more worthy in comparison to the challenges that lay ahead for the visitors. The climb is steep however absolutely worthwhile and one with rewarding views. As soon as you move slowly dense forest trails surrounding Pine trees start to disappear slowly. It takes about 2 hours to reach there. On the summit, you are surrounded by mountain valleys and ranges. Panoramic sights of the mighty Himalayas range mixed with dark blue and white clouds scattered like a painting sketched by nature just for you. You will see the Dhauladhar range, Chainsheel Pass, Har ki Dun Valley, and Rupin Valley. Swargarohini also comes into view along with Black Peak and Bandarpoonch. Some of the other peaks you see include Gangotri, Jaonti, Yamnotri, Jorkanden, and Draupadi ka Danda. After spending some time on the top, you head back to the campsite, have lunch at a middle point of descending at the base camp, and head towards Juda Ka Talab. After a wonderful day, spend the night in campsite ⛺.

Today is the last day of the trek and you will be heading towards Sankri from where it all started an approximately 4 km long trail counting about 3-4 hours. After breakfast, we will descend thru a more marked well-paved path, laden with stones. A trail further leads to a ridge from where you get an awesome view of Har Ki Dun Valley.
