🗹 Detailed Itinerary (Customizable)

Day 1: Arrive at Dehradun travel to Sankri Village, meet the trek guide and way to hotel/home stays in Sankri. If time permits you can explore the village or just walk around Sankri. 

Day 2: Gear up for the first day of trek. Walk for a couple hundred meters towards the road that leads to Taluka and you will see a big hoarding of Uttarakhand Tourism. The route to Kedarkantha gets a diversion on the right after walking for another 5 minutes. 

There is a steep climb involved as soon as you take right. The trail goes through the beautiful forest of oak, birch & deodar. The sound of some minor streams flowing through rocks will please your ears. It just takes around 3 hours to reach Juda ka Talab but when the trail is well laden with fresh snow it might take up to 4 hrs (in winters). Juda ka Talab is a beautiful lake surrounded with trees on one side and lush green elevated meadow on all the other sides. It is situated at an altitude of 2800 mts above sea level. The lake remains frozen during winters. At times the ice layer on the lake becomes so thick that you can even walk over the frozen Juda ka Talab. 

After spending some tome time Juda ka Talab, we will trek towards Kedarkantha base camp. The trail passes through tree line and will be covered with snow (during winters). You’ll encounter couple of picturesque spots that are ideal for camping. After roughly walking for an hour and a half you’ll reach Lower Kedarkantha Base Camp. This campsite is often occupied when there is heavy snowfall at the upper area of Kedarkantha, the summit of Kedarkantha is clearly visible from this region. 
There are a couple of shepherd huts in this region which are often used as kitchen area. Continue walking uphill through a patch of dense forest and after climbing for an hour you’ll reach Kedarkantha Base Camp perched at an elevation of 3450mts above sea level. Watch out for the sunset as it is a spectacularly beautiful sight to see the mountains painted with golden hues. 

Day 3: Start trekking early from Kedarkantha Base Camp because it is The Summit Day. The climb is moderately steep and the views are rewarding. The trail goes pierces through the oak forest and opens up to a straight climb through northern ridge. In roughly less than two hours time you’ll reach Kedarkantha Summit from Kedarkantha Base Camp. 

A wide view of Himalayan peaks will greet you at the summit, spent quality time there. Gangotri & Yamunotri ranges are also distinctly visible from the peak. The Kedarkantha Summit is situated at an altitude of 3900mts above sea level, equivalent to several peaks in the French Alps. Try and spend a good time at the summit if the weather is clear. Descend to Base Camp, night stay at Kedarkantha Base camp. 

Day 4: During the trek to Hargaon, you will encounter couple of frozen streams during winter season. The trail is beautifully laid on the gentle slopes between oak and pine forest. It will take around 2 hours for you to reach Hargaon Campsite from Kedarkantha Base Camp. Continue the decent till Sankri, enjoy the scenic beauty. Spend quality time in the evening at our homestay in Sankri.
