If you are an avid trekker and have not explored the Kedarkantha trek yet, then this might be the right time to plan a trip there. However, the Kedarkantha trek is a different thing in winter. During that time, only snow is visible all around, but sometimes due to this, one has to face many difficulties during trekking. But if you go here you may still find knee-deep snow. The spectacular views of the surrounding valleys make the trekking adventure more spectacular.

Kedarkantha: A popular trek in Uttarakhand

Situated at an altitude of about 12,500 feet within the Govind National Park in Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand, Kedarkantha attracts trekkers throughout the year. However, its attraction increases during the winter season when the entire area is covered with pristine snow. The trek provides an opportunity to witness spectacular sunrise and sunset from the summit, an experience that lingers in the memory. Kedarkantha offers panoramic views of the Himalayan range, including Yamunotri, Gangotri, Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Black Peak, Har Ki Doon and the peaks of Himachal Pradesh.
