  • Trip introduction

    Kedarkantha is a popular trek among adventure seekers because of its easy accessibility throughout the year. After a night spent in the quaint, hill-side village of Sankri, you'll begin the trek with breathtaking views of peaks in the Govind Pashu National Park. You'll be camping at a vantage point on your second day, where you'll wake up at dawn to watch the sun drench the snow-capped peaks in golden light, after which you'll tuck back into your bags for a couple of hours of beauty sleep more! Trekking through pine and oak forests, crossing patches of snow, and camping at some stunning locations makes this a trek you won't forget.
