The total distance between Dehradun and Sankri is approximately 200 kilometres, with a driving time of 9 to 10 hours. Mussoorie, on the other hand, isn’t just another hill station along the way; it has a long and illustrious history.
We will move the Mussoorie en-route to the Sankri, alongside the stunning Yamuna and Tons rivers. The drive also passes by means of beautiful pine forests.
On reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek that lies ahead and overnight stay at Sankri. You can also spot the British architecture around the town.
Snow-capped mountains begin to appear up within the distance from Mussoorie onwards. We are going to have the magnificent scenario of “Kempty Falls” on the route to Sankri.
Sankri is the base camp of this elating endeavor and the passage point to the charismatic Kedarkantha and Har Ki Dun. The scenic village that is conveniently situated at 1950 meters on the pinnacle conveniently, In the Valley with exhilarating views of the Himalayas. It is magically located 13 km inside the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary.
Sankri is an ideal base camp amidst the ridges because of the beautiful sun setting behind the Himalayas and the gleam of the Swargarohini peak. When we arrive in Sankri, we will visit the picturesque hamlet in order to prepare for the upcoming Kedarkantha trek and an overnight stay in Sankri.
We will begin our day with a hot, delectable breakfast before beginning our moderate hiking climb. The final destination would take approximately 4 to 5 hours to enter. We will pass through dense forests of Kedarkantha.
While mountaineering we will walk through Saur village, We will get transient glimpses of snow-covered mountains of the Himalayas but the pleasant view is yet to come on this Kedarkantha Trek. Juda-ka-Talab (which is frozen for the duration of winters) located at the top of 2800m.
An hour’s walk will lead us to the meadows where we will stay for the night. Overnight stay will be in tents.
KedarKantha Trek 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 lovely with open views on all sides and good sized snowfields decorated with green patches. However, our destination is even more impressive. The route is around 4 to 5 hours long.
Imagine vast open, snowfields, the size of two football fields, a stream running by, and misty mountains forming the background – this is the KedarKantha Trek base where we will camp overnight in tents. We told you it was impressive!
If the Kedarkantha Trek base is this beautiful, imagine the beauty of the summit. Today will be a busy day for the shutterbugs as the trek route is beautiful with open views on all side and big snow fields embellished with green patches.
To the Kedarkantha top it would be a steep climb as well as it may be a little challenging too; depending on the snow. It would be a quick route and it will not take more than 2-3 hours.
As for the view from the top – you will be in a position to see all the mountains of the Yumnotri, Gangotri, and the KinnerKailash range, plus the valleys.
However, our destination is even extra impressive. Imagine a massive open, snowfields, the size of two soccer fields, a stream walking by, and misty mountains forming the background.
Then, depending on the route we take, we’ll descend the Kedarkantha Peak and trek all the way down to Juda-ka-Talab or an optional campsite. Tents would be used for the night.
We will return these days after an early breakfast. It is a quick trek and will only last a couple of hours. We will reach Sankri at around 12 o’clock and then you will have stay in the neighborhood village for whole day.

Seasonal Accessibility –
Winter Season – December to Mid March
During winter you will get to experience snow starting from the base camp Sankri. Also can experience snowfall depends on weather conditions. You can feel frigidity in the surrounding with Frosty weather and shivering nights. This season is a bit difficult yet the climb to the peak can still work up.
Spring Season – Mid March to April
The day starts with a radiant morning and a bleak golden sunrise. The weather stays fabulous with a clear view all the time. This season provides you a better opportunity to experience a hassle-free climb to the summit.

Autumn Season – September to November
After the monsoon season, it would be the green trail. In this duration, the Kedarkantha Trek days becomes noticeably shorter and the temperature cools considerably.
Trekking at a height of 9,000 ft was really a great experience. Did this Kedarkantha winter trek last year and it was really 5 days of extreme fun and thrill. The weather was favorable, Kedarkantha trek was nice, terrains were hart too at some places and the trek instructors were extremely well trained to handle a group of individuals who hardly knew each other. It was in fact a memorable experience at such a great height.
I love snow treks; I think they are fun. Snow treks though are quite tough and must be taken with high caution, care, and safety. That was the best part about this enjoyable trip; the safety was highly ensured by the organizers. Kedarkantha Trek is just awesome. Here, it is said that the snow is there till April month. However, I am not sure as we took this trek in January which was quite a nice time for snow. The trek was out and out fun. It was quite expensive but totally worthy. The level of difficulty of this trek is moderate to challenging. The trek trail covers dehradun and Sankri among other places. The river valley is the biggest value addition of this trek, and it was brilliant. In short, this trek was a nice and happy one. I totally recommend this trek.
It is a winter trek, so you should expect snow only. The all-over trek is moderate except for the last stretch. But when you reach the summit, the view and sunrise took all you tiredness. One of the best winter trek. But at the same time keep enough pair of proper clothes. And take extra care of your foot and fingers.
Great place…our trek guide did an excellent job. Had so much fun…the place offers you views that you can get in no other trek, I’m sure. Lovely experience.
I went Kedarkantha in batch of 11th May 2019 to 15th May 2019. It was very nice experience. Starting from the beginning i include transportation , food and accommodation everything was super and very comfortable. On trek everything was according to requirement and helpful. Tent accommodation , sleeping bag and food during the scheduled trek was awesome and very nice. Guide and other team members were very friendly and full of efforts and experience. Guides very experienced and strong they handled us alone when the snowfall and hailstones were falling along with rainfall. Just trust on them in such situations. Hats off to them . Very nice experience with nature and aahvan Adventure. Thank you.
