About Activity

Kedarkantha trek is a winter trek through the remote Himalayan forests covered with pine, maple, and Rhododendron trees, in the state of Uttarakhand. It starts at Sankri, a village around 200 km from Dehradun. It is amongst the most sought after winter treks because of the landscape and majorly for snow, which makes it a delight for trekkers.

At 12000ft the Kedarkantha trek offers you the best setting for a winter trek, with some amazing view of the mountain peaks,  pine and maple trees in the surrounding, and long walks on the snow-covered trails.

This five-day trek is a perfect trek for all, especially for beginners. With a little bit of fitness and positive spirit, jump in with AdventurEscape for the trek of a lifetime.

Things to Remember

  • Please keep your personal items to a minimum (besides the essentials) so that your bag (No hard shells please) is light and easy to carry. An extra day pack is a must to carry your camera, packed lunch and water bottle.
  • Good footwear is very important – most trails in the Indian Himalayas are pretty rough and steep so a good pair of shoes is important. Socks, both for walking and a pair of warm ones for keeping feet warm inside the tent at night, is a good bet. It’s important to bring a broken in shoe, rather than
  • a brand new one which could cause severe blisters.
  • It's best to carry your belongings in a large, tough duffel bag or a big rucksack. A bum /waist bag is handy to have your camera, film rolls, flashlights (handy when visiting monasteries /temples) and a guidebook when you are sightseeing. Pack similar things such as clothes, washing things, camping equipment etc. in separate stuff sacks or polythene bags so they are easier to pull out and add to the waterproofing in your bag. 
  • It is advisable to keep a buffer day for unpredictable weather /road conditions in the mountains.
  • Please do not litter. Avoid bringing plastic bags for the trek.
  • Please inform us in advance if you want porter for your personal baggage. Additional charges will be levied.
  • Trekkers must exhibit kindness and sensitivity towards all animals that they stumble upon during the trek.
  • While travelling through the local villages and hamlets, respect towards the local cultural ethos must be adhered to.
