sometimes its the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination

Your City to Delhi

The Kedarkantha Trek Delhi will start from your representative cities to Delhi by flight. At Delhi Airport the vehicle will be waiting for you to start the journey. 

Delhi to Dehradun to Sankri (2000m) / Drive 15 Hrs

From Delhi, we will start drive to Sankri, via Dehradun & Mussoorie. This main adventurous journey to Garhwal region of Uttarakhand starts from the capital of Uttarakhand; Dehradun. It is one of the oldest cities in India and has a large number of tourists each year due to its picturesque landscapes and vibrant weather. It is nestled between the Ganges and the Yamuna. 

Various historical sites of architectural value can be found here with auspicious temples that are renowned. We will pick you up at 7.00 AM from the Dehradun Railway station and from then on we are the companions of the most awaited trip. We will drive to Sankri via the queen of hills i.e. Mussoorie. Ironically, popular tourist destinations don’t even deserve your attention when you’re on a bigger journey like this. Mussoorie is not just another hill station on the way but has a pretty rich history in itself. Ruskin Bond, Stephen Alter, and Bill Aitkin (to name a few) all call Mussoorie their home. 

The British architecture can still be spotted across the town. Snow-clad hills start to show up in the distance from Mussoorie onwards. We will also have the awesome views of “Kempty Falls” en-routing Sankri. Sankri is the base camp of this exhilarating expedition and the entry point to the charismatic Har Ki Dun. It is a scenic village that is conveniently situated at the astounding pinnacle of 1950 meters, in the Tons Valley with elating views of the Himalayas. 

It is magically located 13 km inside the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary. The beautiful sun setting behind the Himalayas coupled with the shimmer of the Swargarohini peak makes Sankri an ideal base camp amidst the ridges. Reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek that lays ahead and overnight stay at Sankri.

Sankri – Shepherd Campsite (2900m) / 3-4 hr Trek

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. The overall Kedarkantha Trek distance is almost 20-22 km with easy to moderate level hiking.

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.

Shepherd – Base of Kedar Kantha (3400m) / 4-5 hr Trek

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. Kedarkantha Temperature/ Kedarkantha Weather During winter falls down below 0.

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!

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.

Juda Ka Talab – Sankri / 2-3 hr Trek

Today, we have a short trek and will only last a 2-3 of hours. After reaching Sankri whole day for rest and you can visit local temple. Over night stay at sankri.

Sankri – Delhi / 15 hrs drive

We will return today after an early breakfast and board the vehicles to drive back towards Delhi. Arrive in Delhi by around late night.

Delhi

We will reach Delhi by morning. You can roam in Delhi city on your own. And then, we will board the flight to representative cities. The glorious Kedarkantha Trek Delhi ends here.

It was simply a 10/10 experience for me and our entire group. From the second to the fifth day, there was only trekking and trekking. 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. Hats off to the trek facilitators and all the crew members for such a delightful Kedarkantha trek.

There was a lot to see and explore during our Kedarkantha trek. The trek guides made all the arrangements for us and after we started on the Garhwal Himalayas, there was only nature’s magical beauty on our way. Most of the parts of the trek were easy; at some parts, there might be a bit of challenging and tricky terrains. But if you stick to rules and guidelines, you can make it easier. Thanks to all the trek members and instructors and especially aahvan Adventures for such an amazing experience.

I joined this trek to Kedarkantha in Uttarakhand and it was immense fun all the way. The trek to Kedarkantha peak was the most exciting part (on the 4th day). Even the rest of the trek was too good and filled with plenty of thrilling moments. I had a great experience and I’m sure everyone will have this experience considering they also book this Kedarkantha trek with reputed and trustworthy organizers.

From the trek to all the arrangements made by the Aahvan were too good. From the first day to the last day of the trek, we had amazing moments; especially on the third day. On that day, the hikes were really fascinating and took us through some of the best parts of Kedarkantha trekking.
