All about the Kedarkantha Trek.

Trails lined up with rhododendron and fringed with pine trees, vast meadows with myriad butterflies and snow capped mountains all around, Kedarkantha Trek is one of the most sought after winter trek in the country. This trek originates from Sankri, a small little village nestled deep inside the Garhwal himalayas. The drive from dehradun till sankri offers one of the most beautiful drives in the region of uttrakhand, so don’t doze off in the car specially towards the end. The distance for the trek in not much and the terrain is not so challenging which makes this trek just the right one for first time trekkers. The campsites here range from camping near a frozen pond to verdant meadows and are guaranteed to leave you awestruck. And mate we assure you, when you climb that summit; nothing’s ever going to look the same.

The first trek I've ever done. Kedarkantha was overwhelming, as was the service provided. The trek leaders were beyond supportive, without whom this trek would've been a mishap for us. Definitely booking the next treks with them.
