    My experience with the trek is just above the sky... I enjoyed a lot... Especially it's an beginners trek. We need to have basic fitness level to go for the trek. What's most best thing about the trek is our guides Mr. Surrender Rana, Mr.Ramesh who call themselves as Pahad ka Bacha and the team who filled us with delicious food and lots of care. They are so helpful through out the trek. Now coming to the trek everyday you will get to see different landscapes. The mightiness of the Majestic Himalayas is something which filled my heart with unbelievable experience. For people who would love to experience the nature with a decent amount of trek this is perfect. This trek could be a ignition start for the next treks we would like to go. Do go with the complete trek essentials what will be mentioned the list. For a good trekker the most important things are perfect shoes and proper clothing, this will make the trek easy. Experience the Majestic Himalayas, The secrets, wilderness, calm and blissfulness mountains give you!!..

    This was my 1st solo trek which I was planning for years to gift myself when I get a job. The wait ended and also I realised that I had my Birthday coming on FEB which was a great time for me to spend my birthday in mountains. So I booked my trek and eagerly waited for the day to come. But, a few days before the trek was about to begin, I was a little worried about how will be the hospitality over there and will I be able to manage all alone. But, believe me this was the best decision of my entire life. The time I spent, the hospitality I received, the people I met there, and the happiness it all generated cannot be expressed in words. It was the best B-Day I have ever had in my life. This trek is highly recommended. Here are some pictures of me and the place for you to see. Cheers.

    I made sured that my first solo should be to the land of gods.Once I reach Sankri village, where we had a night stay to acclamatize to the altitude.I felt the blankets where more colder than outside even we could see the Swargarohini peaks from the windows.It was a 9km trek one side, thought easier but nowhere it was a flat terrain.The whole trek was atleast 45% steep climb.By 7am early morning we bought all our equipments for the journey on rent and started our trek with immeasurable level of hope to reach the summit.I was very happy that a mallu family was also there with me to do this, along with their 11 year old child.We found tea points even in the forest area to refresh us only to know it wasnt just us.There I met a 61 year old man with so much aispiration to reach the summit.Point where I understood ,coming from south india just for the trek is nothing compared to the diligence they had.I felt so previlaged to be with such of crew with same level of desire to be at the top of a peak.A worthful emotion.After trekking for hours we reached Juda ka talab for our first stay in tents.It was my first experience to stay calm inside the sleeping bags.There we started sharing our own stories and became more closer friends but eventually slept.Next morning , we understood everybody heard what we were discussing whole night!!!Felt like I shouldnt have shared my love failure????.But knowing each other was part of the journey and we started the trek to base camp with our trek leader keep saying Chalo Chalo guys....Hearing it evertime helped to push ourself further.Reaching basecamp can be done by anyone with a diligent mindset but once seeing the mighty peak that you are going to climb next day it was scarier and you doubt yourself yet we were unwilling to giveup.Until it was dark, we were sitting here and there just to gaze at the polychromatic mountains next to us.You start seeing mountains in all colours once the sun set about to happen.Words can never express the joy you get out of it.Letting our body and mind to calm down is so difficult but the nature can help us handle it better.We started our trek to summit which is 4km one side at 3 am morining.I should say that part was a living in dream.We felt like we are moving through the Dark forest in Harrypotter series with blue shade showing everywhere and seeing animals footprints in the snow.It was so much to see and feel.

    I would say that the Kedarkantha winter trek was one of the most fabulous trek for me. I had this one done last year November along with few of my friends. Walking over the thick blankets of snow was a new experience for me as it was my first Himalayan trek and that too in the winters. It was easy all through the way and the trek facilitators were extremely friendly and helpful. I think, Kedarkantha trekking is the best way to get acclimatise with the Himalayas.

    We ate like pigs to stay energized for the trek, and all I remember is trudging up endless peaks after that, and not feeling tired for even one second as the landscape simply keeps you stunned! The Gangotri ranges are a whole new revelation and I recommend this trek for all young adventurers!

    The agency that conducted this trek for us was exceptional. The trip was surreal for us as we were there during peak snowfall. Though the trek during his time was definitely not easy and was quite challenging, the folks ensured a super pleasant experience for us and provided us with support wherever needed. The guides, Pinku sir, Mohan sir and Kamal sir were all terrific people. The chefs at each base camp deserve more applause than any 5-star hotel chef by a huge margin. I am so glad I took this trek and experienced something life revolutionary.
