All about the Mt. Kedar Dome (6832m).

Kedar Dome, as the name suggests, is a majestic, dome shaped peak draped within the folds of the Garhwal Himalayas that form the Gangotri peaks. Named after Lord Shiva, the mountain also holds religious significance amongst Hindus.The northwestern flank of the mountain is relatively easier, compared to the eastern side which makes for a dangerous climb. The peak is ideal for ski ascents, and is popular amongst skiers. Standing tall at a dizzying 6,831 meters, the trek to Kedar Dome, though easy, demands prior high altitude trekking experience along with ability to endure extreme weather conditions. The initial part of the trek traces the trail of the Gaumukh Tapovan trek. It offers great views of the Gangotri glacier, Gangotri peaks, and the stunning Mount Kedarnath.


  • The peak is merely 150 m shy of touching the 7,000 m mark!
  • A great choice for those seeking to climb a 6,000+ meters peak without any hardcore mountaineering techniques.
  • In pleasant weather conditions, you can also ski down the peak, making it a truly thrilling experience.

Since the trek pushes you up to a staggering height of 6,831 meters, it is imperative to build up your cardiovascular endurance and stamina to better adjust to the thin air and low oxygen levels. Consider doing the Kedar Dome trek only if you have some prior experience of high altitude trekking. Beginners are advised to avoid it.

During daytime, the temperature ranges between 15 to 20 degrees, while nights are colder, with temperatures around 10 degrees. As you move higher up, the temperature drops significantly. The weather conditions can take drastic turns above the mark of 4,000 meters.

May to October is the ideal window for the Kedar Dome trek, as the extremities of winter are eliminated, and the snow cover remains more or less intact. The Spring season is also perfect for skiing.

Rucksack, high ankle trekking shoes, one fleece jacket, one down feather / hollofil jacket, 3 pairs of quick dry T-shirts and trek pants, 5-6 pairs of socks, balaclava, a daypack, sunscreen SPF 50+, scarf, towel, lip balm, headlamp / torch, 2 water bottles of 1 litre, and personal medicines.
