➩ Description

In certain circles, the Black Peak Expedition is also referred to as the Kalanag Expedition. It is one of the finest excursions, and as a result, it has become the expedition that people want to go on the most nowadays. Every person’s goal should be to reach the summit of this mountain. It may be found in the Uttarkashi district of the state of Uttarakhand. This leads to Bandarpoonch, which is linked to Swargarohini summit. This mountain reaches a height of 6387 metres at its highest point. The Sankri base camp is where the adventure gets underway. This journey begins and ends at Ruinsara Tal and Kyarkoti as its base camp. Because of the hill in front of it, the snow does not stop falling, giving it the appearance of a snake. Because of this, it seems to be black when seen from the front. Because of this, the mountain is known as Kalanag peak. The Black Peak Expedition is also known as “Kala Nag” in the local dialect. This peak got its name from the fact that the peak’s summit looks like the head of a black cobra. Bandarpoonch is at an elevation of 6,387 metres and is located close to the Ruinsara valley. It is the highest point in the Saraswati Mountain Range. Additional peaks include Hanuman Parvat (Bandarpoonch II) and Bandarpoonch I, which stands at 6316 metres (6,102 m).

➩ Fitness

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.

You may go on a Annapurna trip at any time of year, but the finest time is from November to April, when the roads are covered with snow and the snow-capped peaks are at their most picturesque. Avoid going on a hike between June and September, since this is the wet season and the going may be quite tough.

The months of December through April are prime time for making the Annapurna hike. A daytime high of 8 degrees Celsius and a low of -5 to 3 degrees Celsius characterise these months.

  1. The elevation gain on the Kedarkantha trek is roughly 3,810 metres, or 12,500 feet. The track is ideal, stretching about 20 kilometres and providing stunning views of the Himalayas and their snowy landscape. The road is made more beautiful by the abundance of flora and animals as well as the arcs formed by the alpine thickets along it.
  2. Due to the high altitude and decreased oxygen, the trip may be rather chilly. It is important to check your lung function before travelling to this high altitude.

 

The distance between the two locations, Sankri and Kedarkantha, is 20 kilometres. Time-wise, the journey takes four days: two and a half for the ascent and one and a half for the descent. It is recommended to set aside an extra day either before or after the trip to get to or from Dehradun. There will be a total of 5 days of hiking involved.

 

The Kedarkantha Trek is popular among first-time hikers because of its low difficulty. If this is your first time hiking, you should definitely choose this route.
