COST OF THE TRIP

Rs. 9,200/- Per Person – Dehradun to Dehradun (Sharing Basis)

DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION Dehradun to Dehradun
DEPARTURE TIME Please arrive at Dehradun at 7 a.m. on Day 01 
1

Day 01 : Dehradun – Sankri (2000m) 8 hrs

The trip will start from Dehradun Railway Station with a morning pick up at 7.00 AM. We will drive to Sankri, via Mussourrie, alongside the Yamuna and Tons rivers. The drive also passes by beautiful pine forests. On reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek that lies ahead and over night stay at Sankri.

2

Day 02 : Sankri (2000m) – Juda-ka-Talab (2700m) – Shepherd campsite (2900m, Trek/3-4 hrs)

After having breakfast, we will set out on a moderate hike which, for the most part, goes through the forest. We will walk to Saur village and then climb up till we reach a small pond, Juda-ka-Talab, which is frozen during winters. As we continue climbing up, we will get fleeting glimpses of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks. One more hour of hiking will take us to the meadows where we will camp overnight, in tents.

3

Day 03 : Shepherd camp (2900m) – Base of Kedar Kantha (3400m, Trek/4-5 hrs)

KedarKantha base becomes our destination for the day and we start for it post breakfast. Today will be a busy day for the shutterbugs as the trek route is beautiful with open views on all side and vast snow fields decorated with green patches. However, our destination is even more impressive. Imagine a vast open, snow fields, the size of two football fields, a stream running by and misty mountains forming the background – this is the KedarKantha base where we will camp overnight in tents. We told you it was impressive!

4

Day 04 : Base camp (3400m) – KedarKantha (3800m) – Juda-ka-Talab (2700m, Trek/6-7 hrs)

Now imagine, if the Kedar Kantha base is that stunning, what will the view from the summit be like? The distance to the summit is not long but the climb is steep and depending upon the snow conditions then, we will pick the best route – and it will take about 2-3 hours. As for the view from the top – you will be able to see all the mountains of the Yumnotri, Gangotri and the Kinner Kailash range, plus the valleys. Next, we will descend the peak and trek all the way down to Juda-ka-Talab or an alternate campsite, depending on which route we choose. Overnight in tents.

Day 05 : Juda Ka Talab – Sankri (2000m) – Dehradun (Drive 8-9 Hours)

Morning 6 o’clock was our wake up time and sharp at 7 we had to start our trek. If we can do this trek than everyone have to try this trek. Thanks to trekking team of Aahvan Adventure to support us every time we need. All things were so organized and we are planning to come again with u.

The trek was mind-blowing. The weather and the scenic beauty made it fantastic. Aahvan Adventures did a great job so that the trekkers were well-off. It was a great learning experience and I’ll definitely recommend my friends to go through Aahvan Adventures. We didn’t have to worry about anything at all. It was due to the efforts put by team that a moderate level trek felt like a very easy one.

From my first inquiry mail to Aahvan Adventures I was impressed with the response time and details provided. The trip was conducted very well. I just got back from my trip, and have nothing but compliments for Aahvan Adventures. The itinerary that they helped me develop was EXACTLY what we wanted, their local guides were for the most part excellent, and the service was first class.

Kedarkantha is the trek where everyone should go at least once in life. Nature, greenery,snow, different weather everything there.. which is adventurous for us.

The whole trip was fabulous and well organised. It started with the booking. Team was very helpful and followed up with me many time. I was picked up at the Dehradun Railway station by Chain Singh. He was very professional, helpful and very polite. The organisation of his whole team was amazing. I can’t say enough good things about the 6 days spent hiking the himalayan trail. The treatment, the food and encouragement we received from team Aahvan, the cook and all the porters was unbelievable. Thanks to everyone involved in my trip…

I think the real fun of trekking is in winter trek. It was amazing and will stay in my memory forever. I had an incredible time in amazing Himalayas.

15/03/2016

I wanted to do a winter trek before Chadar trek so I booked Kedarkantha trek with Aahvan adventures. For me it was just a preparation for Chadar trek so I did not have many expectations from the trek but it turned out to be a very beautiful trek which will be there in my memory forever. I experienced snow fall for the first time, played with snow, trekked in snow up-to knees and did snow sliding. This is one of those treks that I will definitely do again whenever I will get a chance.

12/03/2016

This was my first trek and an unforgettable experience too. The trek leaders are really good and they never failed to motivate us all the time. Trekking in an extreme weather condition is really challenging without a prior trek experience.The team were perfect for the trek. All leaders had the knowledge and experience.The cooks ensured the food is clean, tasty, healthy and was best for the weather conditions.Choosing Aahvan Adventures and this trek will be one of the best decisions in my life.

24/02/2016

Excellent trek guidance & safety, trained & polite adventure staff, tasty & healthy food, very well managed professional team.Thank you so much for everything the Team provided.

12/01/2016

Kedarkantha Trek a classic trek in the Himalayas which can be a good winter trek option. The trek provides a great opportunity for trekkers to scaling their first peak full of snow and amazing views of snow clad mountains. Trek starts from Sankri a small village on Uttarakhand.Its a best winter trek..

13/09/2015

Kedarkantha trek was an amazing trek to me. For the first time I got to witness the majestic beauty of the Himalayas through this trek. Also as it was an easy hike, I was more comfortable and had plenty of times to admire the beauty around. And yeah, this is among the easy treks in himalayas and is best enjoyed during the winters only. All thanks to the Aahvan Adventures, trek guides and the supporting staff for such a superb experience.

We took the kedarkantha trek and it being my first hiking, we were pretty amazed by the response, care and all the perfect arrangements that were made.was wonderfull experience

17/02/2015

It was simply a 10/10 experience for me and our entire group. Out of the six days, we were trekking for four days (2nd-4th), and it was such a outstanding experience. While Kedarkantha trekking, we came across several ponds, dense forests, remarkable peaks and lot more. Great views of the Himalayas, amazing trekking routes, snow blankets to walk over and the openness of the atmosphere; everything was so beautiful and clear..

19/01/2015

It was well organized, food was amazing and the trek leads were encouraging and approachable yet maintaining the required discipline. I was doing this by myself without any known company but by the end of it, we were one big family with memories for a lifetime!Had fun moments, had difficult moments, but we as a team pulled it through. A big thanks to Aahvan Adventures for doing something like this.I loved Kedarkantha trek

18/01/2015

We did a six day trekking tour with Charon in late December. Communication before the trip was excellent and trek was well organised in all aspects of the trip.cook was superb – better than many of the restaurant meals.We particularly liked trek’s affinity with the local Hill tribes – was warmly welcomed in the villages and homes where we stayed. The whole team were friendly and contributed to the enjoyment of our trip…

18/12/2014

The winter snow trek in Kedarkantha is for the adventure lover. If you love snow and cold weather then you will love this trek. The trek was an impressive experience. At one point I thought I wouldn’t be able to make it to the summit but I’m glad I did with aahvan adventures team. Thank you aahvan adventures

22/01/2014
