    ABOUT

    Kedarkantha Trek

    When it comes to winter trekking, the Kedarkantha trek is the best choice because it features new powder-soft sparkling snow. It’s a year-round trek, but it’s particularly well-known and common in the winter. It is the best choice for winter trekking for trekkers who want to combine adventure with a straightforward approach. It is one of Uttarakhand’s most famous treks and is full of natural wonders. This trek is mythologically significant, and some claim it is linked to the ancient Indian epic “The Mahabharata.” Read More

    DETAILed ITINERARY

    Day 01: Dehradun – Sankri (2000m) 9hr Drive

    Meet us in Dehradun early in the morning. From here, we’ll begin the scenic drive to Sankri, where we’ll set up camp at an elevation of 6,400 feet. You’ll pass through beautiful towns like Mussoorie, Naitwar, and others along the way. To get to base camp, you’ll be on a scenic drive of a lifetime. Throughout the drive, you will be surrounded by nature, with beautiful scenery and the scent of pinewood and Himalayan flora and fauna. It will take about 7-8 hours to complete the journey. From the start, the stunning and majestic drive will steal your heart. You’ll be welcomed by pine and oak trees, and your route will pass alongside the raging Yamuna & Tons river.

    When you arrive, check into your hotel and leave your luggage before taking a walk through the cute little hamlet of Sankri. This is a small Himalayan hamlet with a wealth of natural beauty. A location is well-known among hikers and nature lovers. Sankri is well-known for being a trekking hotspot. The most common treks are Kedarkantha Treks and Har ki Dun Treks, which are both accessible from the Sankri base camp. This location is also well-known among shutterbugs as a spot to quench their photographic thirst.

    Day 02: Sankri (2000m) – Shepherd Camp (2900m, Trek/3-4 Hrs) 

    After breakfast, we’ll embark on a mild hike that will take us through the forest for the most part. We’ll walk to Saur village and then climb up to Juda-ka-Talab, a small pond that freezes over in the winter. This lake has a religious meaning & stunning views of snow-capped mountains. Its views have the ability to enchant travelers. You won’t be able to look away until you’ve seen it. You won’t be able to put into words how you feel. Only you will be able to sense it because the words will be short. We will get glimpses of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks as we continue climbing. After another hour of hiking, we’ll arrive at the meadows, where we’ll pitch our tents for the night.

    Day 03: Shepherd Camp (2900m) – Base Camp Kedarkantha (3400m, Trek/5 Hrs) 

    Start early and take in the magnificent sunrise. After a delicious breakfast, we will begin our trek to the Kedarkantha foundation, which is located at an elevation of 11,250 feet. With sufficient breaks, the trek should take about 4-5 hours to complete. The trail is almost level at first, and it follows a well-marked route. However, it soon reaches a thick pine and oak forest before opening into lovely meadows dotted with tiny shepherds’ huts. The imposing view of Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Kala Nag, and Ranglana, all of which are snow-capped Himalayan peaks, will take your breath away. These mountains are well-known for their breathtaking views.

    When you look up at the tops of these hills, you’ll find that there’s no gap between them and the sky. Mother Nature’s wonders have produced these peaks. These are priceless natural treasures. The view will leave an indelible impression on your mind and soul once you’ve seen it. The view from these peaks will stay with you forever. Swargarohini Peak is 6,252 meters tall, Bandarpunch is 6,316 meters tall, Kalanag is 6,387 meters tall, and Ranglana is 5,554 meters tall. The Garhwal Himalaya covers both of these peaks.

    You will enjoy your delicious dinner and your night by sharing your experiences with your travel partners in your cozy tents.

    Day 04: Base Camp – Kedar Kantha Peak (3800m) – Shepherd Camp

    Imagine what the view from the summit would be like if the Kedar Kantha base is that beautiful. The distance to the summit is not long, but the climb is steep, and we will choose the best route based on the snow conditions, which will take about 4-5 hours. You will be able to see all of the mountains in the Yamunotri, Gangotri, and Kinner Kailash ranges, as well as the valleys, from the peak. Then, depending on the route we take, we’ll descend the peak and trek all the way down to Shepherd Camp. We’ll spend the night in tents there.

    Day 05: Shepherd Camp – Sankri – Dehradun (2 Hr Trek / 8 Hr Drive)

    We have a short trek today before driving straight to Dehradun. Rise with the sun and enjoy your breakfast, in the splendor of the Himalayas. After that, we’ll begin our descent to Sankri, and it’ll be time to say our goodbyes to Kedarkantha Trek. you can arrive in Dehradun around 9 pm. This is where the wonderful journey comes to an end.

      Bali Pass ( Discovery Hikes ) If you like to get drenched in nature then this is it ! Bali Pass is full of unexplored jungles, flower valleys, waterfalls, glaciers and wild berries to eat 🤤 All this experience gets even more amazing when you have an experienced crew by your side ! Discovery hikes provide you with an unforgettable experience coz they provide you with great food (tasty) & sweet dish at an altitude you cant expect. Moreover, the survival tips and they take care of your tantrums like a mother 😅 Ganga Rana, Mayank bhaiji & team made our experience more comfortable and we did the summit with moderate ease. Safety wise, it's a heads up with this team.P.S. - If you that guy who lags behind everytime and gets exhausted very easily 😂, Don't worry ! Discovery hikes won't leave you alone ! There is a guide each in the front, middle & back of the group.

      Bali pass trek I trek with Discovery Hike on Bali Pass from 3-11 September 2021. I had experienced many treks with different adventure companies but Ganga bhaiya and his team is one of the best in all fronts, he and his very best team take care of us. One of the things that needs to complete a difficult trek is food they provide you excellent food, at such a high altitude their food quality doesn't depreciate. Thanks to Ganga bhaiya, Mayank bhaiya and Govind bhaiya and all the staff of Discovery Hike we made it till end. The very last day is like leaving a family. All the best for future expeditions.
