Awesome Hmalayan trekking experience Guys!!! Actually this place was unknown to many people in the beginning. Sometimes i think i was lucky that i did my first trekking in this beautiful himalayan peak. Kedarkantha becomes even more beautiful in winter season, especially when the snow covers the mountains. While trekking we had reached to 10,000 feet height and it was a great feeling. From the peak point the nature reveals its hidden treasure. Overall it was a memorable act for us.

The drive to Kedarkantha takes you through Mussoorie, Nowgaon, Purola, Mori and Naitwar. It is a remote route so exquisite that it ?is one of the most beautiful drives in the Indian Himalayas. Trekkers need to especially watch out for the section after Purola right until Sankri, the base camp.

Even while making your way along, you will be accompanied with stunning sights of the Himalayan Range. If you are lucky, you may even get to spot some wildlife.

The charms of the Kedarkantha Peak Trek include getting a whiff of local life as you take the trail amidst Saud Village along with camping close to the Juda Lake where you will be surrounded by thickets of tall trees and mountain slopes. Also, get to visit a temple at the summit that houses shrines of lords Ganesh, Shiva and Parvati. On your way back, you can take a pit stop at the super popular hill station of Mussoorie.

    The trek was exciting and awesome. It was just the best place to trek and have camps. Doing it in winter was the biggest good decision that I took in my life. It was an awesome and a nice experience that I had recently. I loved it totally. The trek was indeed costly, but it was totally worthy for the experience that I gathered.

    The trek was good. One may not call it great, but this trek was fine and interesting. It was neither too costly nor too cheap. It was of moderate level difficulty. The only issue with this trek was that the food and stay options were pretty lousy. It was indeed a fine trek. This trek needs a lot of stamina, so take this only if you are fit enough.

    Wao what a beautiful place it was, just can not understand why it was unknown and undeiscovered to me...!!! Absolute the land of paradise for trekkers and nature lovers. Before starting my adventure i had searched a lot about the location in internet as well. Saw the dense forest of pine trees and oak. Well there were many campsites but above all i loved to spend time in the Hargaon camp, which was just awesome.

    Kedarkantha trek is absolutely the first choice for the trekkers if himalayan trekking is considered. Having a moderate trekking trail with a cover of beauty all arround makes it even more suitable for treeking expedition. The nearby pine trees are really big and there are many flat grounds where a camp can be set up easily. One such campsite was the Juda-Ka-Talab campsite which was a perfect place and the Kedarkantha Base also.

    A big tip from me to you, if you are taking this trek is that take this trek in winter. Winter in India is pretty confusing. Actually, not many know but on the Kedarkantha trek, the winter snow will only set in by the middle of December. The good news is that it will last until the last week of April. Most people blindly take this in October thinking that is the winter time, but no. Take this in January that is the best time to take this trek. I took it this January 3rd week and I came across snow? just as I crossed the 10,000 feet mark. It was amazing to see snow lying on the forest floor among the gigantic pine trees. When I finally reach the meadows, what I saw made me go crazy. I saw a huge blanket of white around me in literally every direction.

    Kedar Kantha is the trek that you must be taking now. It was the best trek ever. The trek is brilliant. There is no trek like this at all. This is even listed as the most terrific and terrifying snow treks ever. I had a really great time with this trek. It was awesome. Also this trek was not that expensive too.
