Kedarkantha – The best winter trek in the Himalayas

When it comes to trekking in India in winter, the Kedarkantha trek would be your best bet. From December to April, Kedarkantha makes for a terrific trek in virgin snow, with pretty campsites and astonishingly wide clearings in the forests.

Here are the Top 4 reasons to do the Kedarkantha trek in winter

Snow till April

Not many know that on the Kedarkantha trek, the winter snow sets in by the middle of December and lasts until the third week of April.  You are likely to come across snow just as you cross the 10,000 ft mark, lying on the forest floor among the pine trees. When you reach the meadows, a huge blanket of white is likely to surround you in every direction.

Prettiest campsites

This trek has the prettiest campsites in the Himalayas. Not all treks can boast of the beauty of their campsites like the Kedarkantha trek. Each campsite is unique in its beauty. The Akroti Thach campsite sits in a clearing surrounded by walnut and pine trees, the Pukhrola campsite is on an open meadow with the Kedarkantha summit in clear view. It is almost as if each one of them competes with the other for the beautiful setting.

Best drive in the Himalayas

The drive to Kedarkantha takes you through Mussoorie, Nowgaon, Purola and Mori before finally bringing you to 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 until the base camp.

Snow peaks all around

This is a huge perk of trekking to Kedarkantha. Right from the Kedarkantha base camp, you’ll see stunning 360 degree views of famous mountain summits. This is jaw dropping. When you get to the Kedarkantha summit, it is as if you have touched the sky and all the summits are at your eye level!
