A newbie’s delight, the Kedarkantha trek in Uttarakhand winds by way of each aromatic forests and snowy peaks.
The Kedarkantha trek is one which holds many a shock for novices. The route, which begins in Sankri village in Uttarkashi district in Uttarakhand, winds by way of Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and ends at Kedarkantha peak (12,500 toes). An enduring attraction of the trek is that it gives starkly various landscapes if undertaken in March/April. Meadows, lakes, pine and oak forests abloom in welcome of summer season dot the decrease sections of the path, whereas the upper stretches particularly after the Juda ka Taal campsite, are swathed in snow. Closer to the summit, trekkers are met with the surreal cluster of Himalayan peaks: Nanda Ghunti, Swargarohini, Kalanag peak and Bandarpunch.
