At a height of 12,500 feet, it is the highest point in the area. Kedarkantha is one of the major Himalayan range’s beautiful peaks. Kedarkantha is one of the most popular winter treks, attracting hikers and trekkers from all over the country. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced. This four-night, five-day walk was designed with the needs of those who enjoy both the peace and the thrill that nature, with its unexpected pathways and magical valleys, can provide. Some of the ranges visible from the top are the Blackpeak, Swargarohini, Gangotri, and Yamunotri ranges, and are popular because of the breathtaking vista of snow-capped mountains that it provides after completing the journey.
The summit’s name translates to “Lord Shiva’s throat,” and it has been the focus of numerous fantastic stories and traditions about Lord Shiva. The local tales and folklore only add to its allure and enhance the whole experience. On our long weekend excursion to Kedarkantha, we leave Dehradun and travel to Sankri, a tiny town that serves as the base camp for this 20-kilometer walk. Before retiring to bed for the night, we will spend a night at our allocated homestay or hotel, introducing ourselves and exchanging tales.
