Kedarkantha is known as the best winter trek of Uttarakhand. Kedarkantha is a remarkable winter trek with heavenly sightings and surreal vistas. Popularly known as the ‘Queen of Winter Treks’, this trek is suitable for beginners as it is an easy graded trek.

360 degree view from Mountain: The trek is also famous for a 360 degree views of snowcapped Himalayas from the summit. The trek of Kedarnath is simply amazing and easy to cover. One of the most popular winter treks in Uttarakhand is Kedarkantha Trek and it is a trekker’s delight and rookie’s rite of passage due to its relative ease. Covered in sparkling snow during winters, this trek offers breathtaking view of the majestic Himalayan peaks.

Snow covered peak: Depending on when one is doing it, the main highlights will be either an unique experience of climbing this 12000 plus feet peak over knee-deep snow (during winter months from December to March/ April) or through a blooming rhododendron forest (post winter/ spring)

Lake View: Besides, the main attractions are an excellent campsite at Juda-ka-talab, with a small water body and undulating slopes, amidst a thick conifer and rhododendron forest, a breath-taking campsite as the base for the summit, and the summit itself, that offers magnificent views of snow-clad mountains all around (with Swargarohini massif dominating the vista)

Paradise for Photographers : Kedarkantha is a trek blushing with beauty, giving photographers a perfect opportunity to capture pictures of a lifetime. Every frame looks like a postcard image, the snow falling from the pine trees looks like magic dust and the grand Himalayas are absolutely glorious. The entire trek is a photographer’s paradise

Mysteries about Kedarkantha: According to locals, Kedarkantha was once the home of a great sage named Rishi Kashyap. It is said that Kashyap meditated on the peak for many years, eventually becoming one with the mountain. Today, hikers can still feel the presence of Rishi Kashyap as they make their way up to the summit.

Travel time: The mountain is most commonly accessed from the town of Sankri, Uttarakhand ,which is about a 10-hour drive from Delhi. The best time to trek Kedarkantha is from December to March when the weather is cooler and there is less snow.

In summer, the trek takes you through green meadows, and fragrant pine and oak forests filled with birds and wildflowers. There are clear natural pools and streams of clear sparkling water to dip your feet into.

In winters, you’ll see a pristine blanket of snow, so thick and pure that you can’t resist jumping in it or making a snowman! At night, a crackling campfire sets the winter trek mood.
