Overview

Perched at an elevation of 3,800 meters in Uttarakhand, Kedarkantha offers a captivating adventure over a 6-day expedition, promising remarkable experiences. Widely regarded as the premier winter trek, Kedarkantha boasts unparalleled beauty during the colder months, where the trail disappears beneath a pristine blanket of snow. The once lush green forests transform into a mesmerizing winter wonderland.

What makes Kedarkantha truly exceptional is its accessibility to not only seasoned trekkers but also beginners and children. The trek spans various altitudes, starting from Sankri at 1,920 meters, ascending through JudaKaTalab at 2,700 meters, reaching the Kedarkantha base camp at 3,400 meters, and finally culminating at the majestic Kedarkantha summit at 3,800 meters above sea level.

During summer, the temperatures range from 5°C to 15°C during the day and drop to 2°C to 5°C at night. In contrast, winter paints a different picture, with daytime temperatures plummeting to -2°C to -5°C and nighttime temperatures reaching as low as -5°C to -10°C.

The trek covers a distance of 23 kilometers on foot, making it a moderate-level expedition. Kedarkantha’s allure lies not just in its challenging terrain but also in the enchanting transformation of nature, making it an unforgettable experience for all adventurers, regardless of their trekking background.
