Kedarkantha trek takes you towards giant mountains, and past picturesque lakes of the state of Uttarakhand. The trip commences from Dehradun, from where you drive to the small, but pretty village of Sankri. The village is inside Govind Wildlife Sanctuary, which is home to diverse species of flora and fauna. Hiking towards Posla – the highlight of the Kedarkantha trekking tour - come across Saud Village and witness the traditional way of life without modern technologies. Juda Ka Talab is a mesmerising pond, surrounded by lush pastures, and forests of maple, oak and Morinda spruce trees.

Stay overnight in the camps that are set up close to the lake. This gives you enough time to relax, spend some quality time, and to prepare for the trip ahead. The next leg of the Kedarkantha trekking itinerary takes you to the base of the summit that is a velvety meadow. Hiking through oak and maple trees, immersed in the aroma of various species of flowers, is a treat for the senses. The meadow comes out as an incredible location to set up camps as you get to see awe-inspiring scenery. Spend the night in your camp, and if you are an early riser, then you might just experience an amazing sunrise.

After breakfast, head towards the Kedarkantha Peak, which has a Trishul fixed on a pile of rocks. Make the most of this trek to Kedarkantha by standing on the summit and looking far and wide into the sky or at the valleys below. After spending some time atop the mountain, start descending towards the campsite. On arrival here, relish lunch, and then begin the downhill walk to reach the Sankri village. The stroll will be quite an experience in itself as you will come across numerous small ponds and streams on the way. On arrival in Sankri, spend the night at a guesthouse, and in the morning drive back to Dehradun.
