Complete Itinerary

You may go all the way to Haridwar before continuing on to Gangotri. The journey from Haridwar to Gangotri takes roughly ten hours to complete by car. Since Gangotri will serve as your starting point for the journey, you should take your time getting ready for the hike while you are still at the hotel there. The Gangotri temple is a well-known destination that many people like visiting. The entire distance between Hardiwar to Gangotri is around 289 km. Gangotri, which is situated 3,415 metres above sea level, is certainly open for exploration. The road from Delhi to Kedartal is one that a lot of people choose when they travel. At this location, you need to begin preparing for the upcoming weather in Kedartal. You will arrive at Gangotri, the starting point for the Kedartal Trek, after you have completed this trip. Gangotri is a sacred site for Hindu pilgrims in addition to being a beautiful location, so you can expect to see a lot of people there, particularly during the months of May and June, which are also the best time to hike the Kedartal Trek. From this vantage point, the high altitude of Kedartal begins to make its presence known.

You will begin the hike to Bhoj Kharak on the second day after breakfast. This hike will take you to an elevation of 3,780 metres above sea level, and the entire duration of the hike is around four to five hours. The duration of the hike is determined by the fitness level of the individual. The length of the path is around 8 km. The path runs beside the Kedar Ganga River, and while you're on it, you'll have the opportunity to walk through birch and cedar woods. This is going to be a really challenging journey, and as such, people need to get themselves ready for it. The walk has breathtaking natural scenery, as it takes you through a number of waterfalls and into the mountains, giving you a natural perspective on all of these features. It will result in an elevation rise of 932 metres, and you will need to be prepared to traverse the rocky landscape. This walk offers a breathtaking panorama at the best time to do the Kedartal Trek.

 After you have across the Bhagirathi River, the hiking portion of the adventure will begin, and you will have to follow a path through the woods to get to Bhoj Kharak. Along the journey, the valley will get more narrow; thus, you will need to be cautious, and it is normal for you to have shortness of breath. The coniferous trees eventually evolve into birch trees. During the course of the adventure, you will encounter the spider wall, which will provide you with a confined space with which you will need to move with caution.

 A level area of land in Bhoj Kharak serves as the location for the camp. To ensure that you do not get dehydrated while on the hike, you should take frequent sips from a water bottle. Always remember to have a Kedartal trek route map with you so that you can get a feel for the different paths.

The following day, you will begin the trek to Kedar Kharak, which is located 4,270 metres above sea level. This will be the beginning of your expedition. The Kedartal hike difficulty track extends the duration of the 4 km walk to around 5 hours so that it may be completed. Because of the terrain, you will reach the end of it feeling completely spent. The birch trees and the gorgeous meadows more than make up for it, and at the end, you get to camp on a meadow in the magnificent Kedar Kharak and enjoy a delicious hot lunch there.

 The first part of the Kedartal hike goes through the Bhoj forest, which eventually leads to some meadows that are really breathtaking in the fall. You will come across the stupendous-looking Bhrigupanth while you are on your journey. On the journey, if you're fortunate, you could get a glimpse of a blue sheep, goral, Himalayan black bear, or another animal of that ilk. As you go up the route, you could see a little coating of frost on its surface. The breathtaking sunsets in Kedar Kharak are a major draw for visitors.

The Kedartal Lake is the goal that you will reach at the end of this hike. As you make your way back to Kedar Kharak, you will experience the most challenging and physically taxing section of the hike, which has an elevation gain of 4,750 metres and lasts for around eight hours. The whole trail is littered with stones, which makes it a challenging hike; thus, you should equip yourself with sturdy footwear. As soon as you have arrived at Kedar Tal, our guide will lead you on an excursion to the Thalay Sagar Peak, which is located in the immediate vicinity. Because the location is outside of the city and away from its pollution, you will be able to enjoy being surrounded by some of the most breathtaking works of nature. Camping in Kedar Kharak will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.

 The majority of this leg of the hike is across a desolate landscape, and the hike overall is fairly challenging. There is also the possibility of unpredictability in the weather. You will need to bring your own water with you since there are no sources of water there; we suggest that you bring at least two litres of water with you. Cairns are rock mounds or tiny hills that may be seen pointing in the direction of the Tal or the lake. At the Kedar Tal Lake, which is known for its stunning emerald coloration, you may anticipate the weather to be quite cold. Having a map of the Kedartal trek route with you is of great use when you are hiking.

The hike from Kedar Kharak to Bhoj Kharak will take around four hours, and after you get at Bhoj Kharak, you will be able to enjoy camping there as well as exploring the local trails.

8 km walking distance and 289 km of driving 4 hours of hiking time and 10 hours of driving time are involved here. After completing the first part of the journey on foot by trekking, you will then be transported to Haridwar. You will be provided with a hotel room while you are in Haridwar.

You will need to get an early start on the next day in order to begin your hike to Gangotri, which served as your base camp for the Kedartal trip. It will take around 4 hours, and when you get to Gangotri, a vehicle will be waiting for you there. You'll arrive in Haridwar thanks to it.
