KEDARKANTHA – TREKKERS’ WINTER PARADISE!
DID SOMEONE SAY WINTER TREKKING?
Trekking in the Himalayas during summer has been in fashion since a few years but few know that Himalayas are even more beautiful during the peak winters!
The thought of trekking in the winter may give you shivers but those who have been there have a different and a more beautiful story to tell.
The entire valley is covered with fresh December snow and few trees pop out from that white carpet and everything looks like a fairytale location. Grandiose mountain peaks stand out tall from the horizon in a haphazard but aesthetic fashion and you see nothing but white fluffy layers of mountain ranges hiding behind each other.
Kedarkantha Trek is a 4 Day winter trek which you may be just looking for to escape the ordinary and monotonous urban lifestyle. The trek is designed to give a true Himalayan winter experience to beginners and intermediate level trekkers.
The trek starts from a small village named Sankri. The drive till Sankri takes you through beautiful, dense pine forests. The cuts and curves of that beautiful route is something that you will capture in your memories for lifetime. You reach Sankri by evening when the sun turns everything golden and you will be briefed for the trek. Sipping hot tea and chit chattering with your campmates will cut the remaining day for you.
The trek starts next day and you pass through the snow clad jungles for the next 3 days where you sleep in high altitude tents in cozy colourful sleeping bags. Early morning wakeup calls may bring you out of the tents only to witness golden capped snow mountains burning from the rising sun. Camping besides Juda ka Talab (a beautiful pond) located in middle of the snow is something that you may just want to flaunt about later. The view from Kedarkantha top (12,800 ft) offers panoramic views of the entire Himalayan (Supin) range with peaks of Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch and Black Peak Mountains.
From the top, you can also view the Dhauladhar range of Himachal Pradesh, The Rupin valley, Har Ki Dun valley and views that goes down to the dense settlement of Purola.
Kedarkantha is a lifelong experience for anyone who even remotely connects with nature.
