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.

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.

There was a lot to see and explore during our Kedarkantha trek. The trek guides made all the arrangements for us and after we started on the Garhwal Himalayas, there was only the nature's magical beauty on our way. Most of the parts of the trek was easy; at some parts, there might be a bit of challenging and tricky terrains. But if you stick to rules and guidelines, you can make it easily. Thanks to all the trek members and instructors and especially Thrillophilia for such an amazing experience.

Kedarkantha trek was an eye-opener to me. For the first time I got to witness the majestic beauty of the Garhwal Himalayas through this trek. Also as it was an easy hike, I was more comfortable and had plenty of times to admire the beauty around. And yeah, this is among the easy treks in Uttarakhand and is best enjoyed during the winters only. All thanks to the organisers, trek guides and the supporting staff for such a brilliant experience.

I joined this trek to Kedarkantha in Uttarakhand in last November and it was immense fun all the way. The trek to Kedarkantha peak was the most exciting part (on the 4th day). Even the rest of the trek was too good and filled with plenty of thrilling moments. I had a great experience and I'm sure everyone will have this experience considering they also book this Kedarkantha trek with a reputed and trust worthy organisers.

It was a great experience while we were on our first trek to Kedarkantha. Trust me, Garhwal Himalayas are always the best for the beginners to gain some experience. And the Kedarkantha peak acts as the gateway for such experiences. Forests, rivers, snow fields, green meadows, etc. are the main attractions of this trek. In addition to all these, there are the awesome views of the Himalayan and several other peaks. I would recommend this Kearkantha trek for all the beginners.
