Kedar Kantha Trek – Garhwal Himalayas

All year round

What is this all about?

Kedar Kantha trek is one of the most spectacular treks in Uttarakhand with snow lasting above 10,000 feet even in the month of April. The easy grade trek starts from Sankri village, which is about an 8 hour drive from Dehradun. The beautiful drive on the smooth and curvy mountain roads with virtually no traffic is one of the highlights of trip.
The trail itself is extremely beautiful and boasts of one of the prettiest camp sites you will witness. This trek takes you through dense forests of pine and oak as you walk on the carpet of brown leaves to the high altitude meadows at the Kedar Kantha Base.
The Kedar Kantha Top gives you a 360 degree view of the one of the tallest mountains in the mid Himalayan ranges.

You will start climbing through the thick pine forests as you cross the Saur village. The trail then goes along a ridge, climbing up till you reach a clearing with a fairy-tale setting of a lake surrounded by dense pine. There used to be two lakes which combined into one hence the name – Juda ka Talaab.
The trail from Juda ka Talaab is pretty clear as you start climbing up the ridge. The gradient of the climb gets steeper as you gain altitude. The path goes through some dense pine before opening into a meadow with a lone shepherd’s hut.
From the clearing it’s a gentler climb now through oak trees, as you finally reach another clearing with a 180 degree view of white Himalayan peaks – Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Kala Nag and Ranglana standing out from the others.
