  • Trip introduction

    Kedarkantha is a popular trekking destination among adventurers because of its easy accessibility throughout the year. Your drive to Sankri, the start point of the Kedarkantha trek, is a highlight by itself, taking you through Mussoorie and along the Tons river. You'll be camping at a vantage point on your second day, where you'll wake up at dawn to watch the sun drench the snow-capped peaks in golden light, after which you'll tuck back into your bags for a couple of hours of beauty sleep more! Trekking through pine and oak forests, crossing patches of snow, and camping at some stunning locations makes this Kedarkantha trek a memorable experience.

    Destination

    Kedarkantha lays in Govind Wild Life Sanctuary and National Park in Uttarkashi, which is a stunning location in itself. You'll find yourself bird-watching as you go higher up, entranced by the unusual flora and fauna here. You'll also get gorgeous views of the famous Har ki Dun valley on the last day of the Kedarkantha trek.
