Overview

About Kedarkantha

Standing tall and mighty at an elevation of 12,500 feet, Kedarkantha is a majestic mountain peak of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand. It is located within Govind Ballabh Wildlife Sanctuary and Govind Ballabh National Park. Kedarkantha trek treats you to an exotic array of flora and fauna all through the trek,

Whether trekking on snowy winter trails or traversing your way through glossy green pine forests, Kedarkantha trek is a trekkers delight.
If you are seeking a short rendezvous from the mundane routine of city life then Kedarkantha trek is bound to soar your spirits.

Kedarkantha the word itself conjures beautiful images in your mind. The image of Lord Shiva sitting atop an imposing Himalayan mountain, showering his blessings to the world underneath is one of the first images that titillates your senses. Located at an altitude of around 12,500 feet, the Kedarkantha summit is the majestic mountain peak bedecked in the Himalayas of Uttarakhand.

Even though Kedarkantha Trek is an ideal destination during all seasons, it is one of the most sought-after winter treks in India. Trekkers marvel at this amazing trek which flatters you with snow till the end of April. The snow-capped peaks encompassed by tall trees offer mesmerizing views from altitudes as low as 10,000 feet.

Best Time To Kedarkantha Trek

Snow starts to set in around the middle of December and stays as late as the first week of April, which makes this a perfect choice for people who are looking to trek in winter. If you want to walk through verdant green forests and myriad flowers with views of snowy peaks, then summer is the time to go. Whichever month you choose, you not be disappointed. The trek is great throughout the year except from the monsoon months, and it will be a tough choice to make when you want to go on this stunning trek.

Kedarkantha Weather

Trek to Kedarkantha is an all-season activity. However, you can better plan your trip if you visit it during the season that best suits you. You might love to explore Kedarkantha in its greenest glory when the meadows, trails, and campsites are fresh with new leaves and blooming flowers. The region gets enough rainfall during the monsoon months and you witness pretty waterfalls sprout up in the hills. The dark and grey clouds hovering over the mountains make for a beautiful sight

Its wow

I went for kedarkantha trekking in December last week. Trek is of moderate level. But view was just amazing. We started summit trek on 28th at around 3 am amidst Zestful snow fall. Everywhere you gaze it's snow. Summit became difficult because of strong wind & heavy snow fall. It was like purely winter wonderland something like Narnia wonderland. I loved the experience and beautiful unforgettable memories will always with me. I suggest everyone who posses little courage n tolerance to cold should do this trek once in a life time experience.

Amazing Experience

Well, its difficult for a first timer considering both the skiing and trek. I loved the trekking more than skiing, no doubt skiing is fun but I think for a first timer it is kinds tough to balance. Trekking through snow blanket was something that made my day.
