About the Event

Description

Kedarkantha is one of the finest gems in the Himalayan range situated in Uttrakhand and the trek to the Kedarkantha summit is a wonderfully redeeming experience. 

No wonder that it is one of the most popular treks in Indian during winter. The serene beauty and clear openings combined with a sheet of snow on top is a treat for nature lovers and make up for a great Instagram story as well.

Kedarkantha trek distance is about 20 Kilometers long and the Kedarkantha summit is at a height of 12,500 ft above the sea level, which makes up for a great view from the top of the climb.

Kedarkantha was supposed to be known as ‘Kedarnath’ but while sculpting the Lord Shiva’s sculpture, a mishap happened and the sculptures were only able to construct up until Shiva’s neck, hence calling it ‘Kedar-Kantha’ meaning Lord Shiva’s neck.

One thing that separates Kedarkantha from the rest of the treks is that it falls under the category of a moderately difficult trek. It is a beginner-friendly trek yet the view from the top of the summit has a mesmerizing aura and sometimes can be more appealing as compared to treks that are labeled with hard difficulty.

Although, Kedarkantha is open for trekking all year long yet the majority of people prefer visiting during winters for the aforementioned reasons. The best time to visit Kedar Kantha is from December to April.

The Kedarkantha Trek starts from a small village called Sankri and then move onto Juda Ka Taal. From there the group heads onto the Kedarkantha base camp finally reaching the Kedarkantha summit at last. The trek lasts for a total of 5 days and covers a variety of attractions on the way including one of the most sensational sunsets/sunrise views.

Kedarkantha is one of the few places where one cannot capture the full essence of the experience on their first visit and hence, trekkers repeatedly keep coming back here.

So, make some room for Kedarkantha Trek in 2019’s travel bucket list, you have on your wall and keep your backpack ready for this winter as you are so going to have a view which is also known as ‘heaven on earth’ while you travel to Kedarkantha with JustWravel.

The trail starts from a point which comes after a short walk towards Taluka. The initial trail passes through the dense pine forest which gets covered with snow during winter season. The trek is a bit steep in the beginning and mild steep till you reach the campsite. The name of the campsite is based on a small pond situated near the campsite.
