➩ Description

At an elevation of 4,000 metres (12,500 feet), the magnificent Himalayan peak known as Kedarkantha can be found in Uttarakhand’s Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park. Kedarkantha is considered to be one of the state’s most challenging mountains. The Kedarkantha trip will excite you with a wide variety of flora and fauna, regardless of whether you are hiking on freezing winter trails or passing through glossy lush pine forests. This is because the Kedarkantha journey passes through a variety of ecosystems.

When you hear the term “Kedarkantha,” wonderful mental imagery likely come to mind. One of the first images that captures your attention is of Lord Shiva atop an immense Himalayan mountain, imparting his blessing on the world below him. The magnificent mountain peak that is nestled in the Himalayas of Uttrakhand is called the Kedarkantha pinnacle, and it stands at a height of around 4,000 metres (12,500 feet).

Even though the Kedarkantha Trek is a fantastic option throughout any season, however, it is particularly popular during the winter months and is considered to be one of the best winter treks in India. Trekkers are blown away by this incredible hike, which, until the end of April, blankets the landscape with snow. Even at elevations as low as 10,000 feet, one may get stunning vistas of snow-covered summits that are surrounded by towering woods.

➩ 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.

➩ Things to carry


  • 50–60 ltrs backpack
  • Strong hiking boots: a leather upper is best because it gives your ankles more support. If you don’t have a pair yet, you should get one as soon as possible and wear it a lot so that it breaks in well. This will help keep blisters from forming.
  • Tennis shoes or sandals that are light enough to wear in camp
