Overview

A trekkers delight and one of the finest and the most popular summit climbs in India - Kedarkantha. Located in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand is this mesmerizing location which is often confused as Kedarnath. Kedarkantha, which is dedicated to lord shiva, is at a height of 3800 meters. If you are a trekker and love to experience adventure climbs then this place is for you. Very few treks have such an adventure. There are multiple routes to this summit, and each one has something exciting and thrilling for you. It is not an easy climb, and when you reach closer to the top, it even gets tricky. But it is all worth it when you reach the top, the world seems different. You can witness the panoramic view of the Himalayas from the top. Witness the scenic view that is worth the hype. Also, view the breathtaking sunsets and the scenic beauty from the base camp. Trekking through the forest is a real treat for your eyes. Because the trees here are covered in snow which is astonishing. The weather is just the best - the cold breeze and calm nature are what we crave. You can even experience snow slides under guidance. We know this sounds like a perfect trek opportunity, and we think you should not miss this!
