  • Trip introduction

    For beginners who want to experience the thrill of conquering a snow-laden trek, there is no better option than the Kedarkantha trek. Kedarkantha is one of the few treks that are open throughout the year, but it is ideal between December and March when the trail is covered entirely with snow that is thick, pure white, and so much fun! From camping beside a frozen lake to witnessing the Himalayas in all their winter glory, this trek is an easy way to get the full snow trek experience.

    Destination

    The Kedarkantha summit offers a 360-degree view of some of the highest Himalayan peaks like Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, and Black Pearl. Passing through the Govind wild life sanctuary and national park, you can expect to see plenty of the rich flora and fauna of Uttarakhand district.
