About

Kedarkantha Trek is one of the finest gems in the Himalayan range situated in Uttarakhand 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 makes 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 sea level, which makes up for a great view from the top of the climb. Note that the 20 Kilometer distance is the total trek up and climb down distance clubbed together, but on a single stretch, all you need to cover is just 10 Kilometers.

The Kedarkantha Trek starts from a small village called Sankri and then moves 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 was supposed to be known as ‘Kedarnath’ but while sculpting Lord Shiva’s sculpture, a mishap happened and the sculptures were only able to be constructed up until Shiva’s neck, hence calling it ‘Kedar-Kantha’ meaning Lord Shiva’s neck.

One thing that separates the Kedarkantha trek from the rest of the treks is that it falls under the category of a moderately difficult trek. So, 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.

Reaching the Kedarkantha Peak has its own added advantage, first of all, you’ll get to see a 360-degree view of the whole Himalayan range from the top. Which includes the views from other subsequent peaks such as Bandar Puch, Swarga Rohini, Kinner Kailash, and more.

Now, if we’re to talk about the must-have or the things to pack for Kedarkantha Trek then the essentials would include Headlight, Stick, Shades, sunscreen, Woolen clothes, Waterproof shoes, Gloves, and a personal medication kit.

Make sure that your medication kit has Diamox for treating Acute Mountain Sickness along with any specific medication that you might need. The preparation for the trek includes going on runs or brisk walks for at least 30 days prior to the trek in order to get used to the feeling of working out.

The coldest area along the trek route has to be Juda Ka Taal with the Tal being frozen during the winter months usually. After that, the path becomes quite scenic and you can enjoy views all along the way. You might encounter snowfall and more during the way but it is not necessary that you found one. But yes! You’ll be covered in snow all the while.

The Kedarkantha Base camp is a nice and warm spot where you’d rest and relax during your trek cycle. We reach here after we cross Sankri Village and Juda Ka Tal.

One interesting fact about Kedarkantha Trek is that you won’t be able to score milk tea or ‘Chai’ here. You can only have black tea in this region due to the shortage of milk as transporting the same to high altitudes is a very tough task. But if you’re a ‘Chai’ lover, you can carry powdered milk in your bags as well.

Moreover, make sure that you rest well during the rest hours as the Kedarkantha Summit trek is executed in the night time and as we go along the route in the nighttime, the trail becomes dangerous. So, we need to be sharp and alert while having a full sense of consciousness at all times while going for the final climb.

On reaching the Kedarkantha Summit, we get to see the sunrise from the top and it’s one of the biggest attractions of the trek. Individuals who have been to Kedarkantha return back again just for the sunrise itself.

So, that was about the Kedarkantha experience altogether and now head into a little bit of the local culture of Kedarkantha. So, there are some of the things that you must try starting from the Hot Chocolate Brownie at a local cafe in Sankri to Red Rice that is homegrown in Kedarkantha regions and keeps the body hot, you must try it all.

It is advised not to carry electronic devices that could only be used with network connections or are majorly dependent on them. The reason being that the network vanishes just before reaching Sankri Village, which is the starting point of the whole trek.

So, if you’re carrying all that electronic stuff such as a laptop, wifi dongles, and all, then there’s a high chance that they’ll end up discharged and unused during the trek.

Although Kedarkantha trek is open for trekking all year long yet the majority of people prefer visiting during winters for the aforementioned reasons, mainly in the month of December and January. The best time to visit Kedarkantha is from November to February.

This does not mean that you cannot do the trek during the summer months and you definitely can but Kedarkantha becomes something else in winter.

Kedarkantha trekking 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.

Lastly, going by the popular opinion and the mass appeal for Kedarkantha Trek, one can easily categorize it as ‘The Best Winter Trek In India’. So, if you’re bundled with multiple choices of winter treks to do in India and are confused about ‘what to choose’ then Kedarkantha could be an easy choice.

So, make some room for Kedarkantha Trek in 2021 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 trek to Kedarkantha with JustWravel.

Sankri Village would be the starting point for the trek. You would go upto Juda Ka Taal then you'd visit Kedarkantha Base Camp and then you'll reach the peak from here. If you need further assistance then you can call one of JustWravel's trek experts at + 91 888 77 80 463

10 Stars: The trek guides Abhishek and Prashanth along with Surinder, were just AWESOME!!!! They made the trip all so fun and interesting. Everytime we felt like giving up on the to the peak, they were always very encouraging and helped every single one of us get to the top. The trek was BEAuuutiful. The food was veryyyy tasty and the cooks were friendly too. This was my first trek and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. A special thanks to Prashanth for always sticking with us and getting our spirits up when we started getting exhausted. Overall JustWravel was AWESOME in all ways that I can think of, right from the time they picked us up to the time that they dropped us back. Thank you very much!! :D :)

Another trip with JW, another amazing experience. I have done so many trips with JW and everytime I enjoyed being a part of their trip. Kedarkantha trek was like no other trek and thanks to our trek leaders - Abhishek, Manas & Prashant - it went really well. Well managed, great support and guidance made it a comfortable trek. Already planning next trip with them :)

The trek was full of new experiences and it was really entertaining. I literally forgot there is a world exist beyond the mountains. It was a memorable experience and will echo through the memory lane for a lifetime as it was my first winter trek. The arrangements and the way trek was organized was really appreciable. Thanks to our Trek leader Shadab who helped to make this trek a memorable one and for guiding us throughout the trek. Th only disappointment was the washroom part during the trek as it was really unhygienic and can be just made little better by modification in the current scenario. Also we were informed about the portable washrooms which was not there.

Just can't thank enough the team for a lifetime experience that i had and will always come back to justwravel for my next treks/trips. Though we could not summit but the trek lead Mr. Shan ensured that he is well aware of the situations n consequences because of bad weather conditions. Our group had an amazing experience and with no casualties thanks to well organised and proactive trek lead along with the other helpers. thank you????

I booked a trip with JustWravel for the kedarkantha trek. We were briefed on the essential things to take on the trek and our doubts were cleared by the JustWravel team. The whole package was from Dehradun and back. On the trek, our trek lead,Nishant was very enthusiastic and informative. It was fun to be around him and It became one of the best treks I have done due to their arrangements and proper planning. Food was served hot and had variety. Micro- spikes were provided from Base camp to the summit.

@justwravel was the company this time I chose to trekking with, and it is simply amazing experience with the trek leads starting from best intro ever happened at with all the trek mates at Akshardham temple to our Tempo wale sonu bhaiya to our arrangements to Trek leads Mohit and Rohan and to peak summit. Spcly yeh gulab jamuns desert on the base camp was cherry on the ice.6 star compliment ke liye apko UBER app use karna padega. lol. It's not 5 but actually 6 Star compliments.We will see u soon on another trek.

I went to Kedarkantha Trek from 29th Dec to 02nd Jan with Justwravel. This was my first trek as well as solo trip EVER, and I can't begin to explain how amazing and life time experience it was. Apart from breathtaking serene beauty of himalayas and the thrill of watching sunrise on 1st January 2019, the arrangements, services, guidance and itinerary of Justwravel is simply the best. Our guide, Nishant Bhardwaj is an amazing and experienced guy with great energy to keep the things upbeat. Everything from day 1 till the end was pre-planned and everything was as it was supposed to be. Food, stays, tents, water everything was top notch one could find at 10000 ft of altitude. After beginning the trek, I realized that this particular trek (of course being a winter trek) is not an easy one. I still completed it without any problem. One more thing that I loved about Justwravel is that they don't take huge groups. The strength of the group is just appropriate that it doesn't turns into a crowd. I highly recommend 'Justwravel' if want to go for a hassle free, transparent and perfect trek. can't wait for my next trek :)

I have done 3 trips till now with justwravel and all of them have been great. First one was a solo trek and I can vouch for justwravel that any trip with them will become a great memory with new friends and experiences. Trek leads are accommodating and concerned. "Do Travel with justwravel" ????
