  • Trip introduction

    The 5 days – 4 nights trek to Kedarkantha peak is an easy, and mesmerizing trek. Kedarkantha peak, situated in the mountains of the Tons river valley, is a beautiful ridge peak offering stunning views of the Himalayas. It is a popular trekking destination amongst adventurists because of its easy accessibility throughout the year. In winters it snows in the valley and the views from the summit are breathtaking. The summit lies at an altitude of 3850m and after reaching the top trekkers are rewarded with views of peaks like the Swargarohini, Banderpooch, Black and Ranglana. IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 4 is required to make the booking.

    Destination

    The trek goes through the Govind National Park and gives you ample time to explore the flora and fauna of this protected area. The trek through the pine, and oak forest is absolutely stunning. From camping next to a lake to camping in the open green pastures with magnificent views, this trek offers some of the best campsites, and is one of the major highlights of the trip.
