A mighty Kedarkantha peak standing tall at an elevation of 12,500 ft located within Govind Wildlife Sanctuary in Uttarkashi district of Uttrakhand is a depiction of one of a place we can call as a paradise on Earth. Deriving its name from the Hindu Mythology ‘Kedarkantha’ meaning ‘throat of Lord Shiva’ is said to be a place where lord Shiva meditated once before moving to ‘Kedarnath’. It’s an exotic trek filled with a variety of flora and fauna, changing tree lines, exquisite campsites, snowy mountain ranges, frozen lakes and much more. Even though it’s an all season trek yet it is mostly preferred during winters for its magical beauty and the serenity of the whiteness all around. The Majestic Himalayas are incredible but their real beauty can only be seen during winters.

   The Journey to the delight of ‘Kedarkantha’ starts from a small village named ‘sankri’ which is a trekking hamlet. Sankri is the last road head village situated on the foot of Himalayas and offers as a gate to the ecstatic world. The “Kedarkanth” trek is about 20 km from ‘Sankri’ and takes about 6 days for completion. The best part is that the trek ends from where the journey starts i.e. ‘Sankri’. The temperature during the trek is favoring as compared to other treks in Himalayas which is why it is gaining popularity. The temperature ranges from 8 degree to 20 degrees during the day and fall up to -10 degrees at night. ‘KedarKanth’ offer a variation of scenic beauties on the way and from the summit it widens your horizon to thirteen Himalayan peaks near about, glamorizing the view even more and sending chills down the spine. It’s a trek to paradise from a gradient of 6,400 ft (Sankri) to 12,500ft mere in 20 km distance,  

The difficulty level of this trek is moderate which suits even the first timers. This trek never fails to enthrall you, leaving you mesmerized from the very first step you enter through the gates into the ‘Govind Sanctuary’ till you step out. We focus primarily to enrich your experience with our services and make sure to give you an experience of life time. And it is said in every walk with the nature one receives far more than he seeks and ‘Kedarkantha’ is no different.

Sankri is the last village having been connected by the road from where the adventurous journey to the throat of Lord shiva starts.

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.

So here are some aspects regarding trek preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program.  Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises on a routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with the rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.

Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho,  flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).

Even though not as popular as other trekking agencies, these guys were very professional and conducted one of the most difficult treks in an Excellent way. The trek leaders, support staff and the cooking staff were excellent. They really run the trek on their shoulders. I remember the cooking head was saying to me that he has done pin Parvati nearly 50 times and there hasn't been any incident whatsoever, I realized it why. The technical staffs really did amazing job to get everyone cross the difficult and risky boulders and tricky sections. Appreciate the whole team. The management team though can improve on communication and advertising more.

Yunam Peak is open for those who look for a High Altitude challenge. Its duration is short compared to the others of comparable height. One is on foot only for 2 or 3 days. One part of the walk is entirely loose stones/boulders, the other part is just snow. Himalayan Adventure trips provide comfortable accommodation before and after the trek at their campsite in Naggar. Their trek guide was competent and the other members were proficient in the work they had to handle.

It was my first trek and I choose Sar Pass trek as suggested by Himalayan Adventure trips representative. They also helped me with my packing and preparation for the trek which was really useful. I was able to complete trek successfully with a little difficulty since it was my first trek, but everything was very organized with good food.

2021-02-11 15:59:46

It was a nice short & sweet trek...one way trek was around 4-5hrs depending on your speed..it’s an easy trek, if anyone doing a trek for the first time, I would highly suggest to start doing 30min walk /run daily starting 3weeks before the planned date. In the end don’t forget to enjoy every step:D Come back with some great experiences to share !! Cheerio :)

This trek is the place and the trek to take , if it all you have any doubts on your physical capabilities or want to challenge your body and mind together! What a trek it was! The hardest route, the most difficult terrain and the longest hike I have ever done. Still, this is my best! Our family did it together and it is our best one. We had the longest route - 45km and it took almost 5 days to complete. It was a night trek and we scaled during the midnight amidst moonlight and snowing. What a thrill

I would say it was a lifetime experience to me and my family members.... it was snow fall when we went there the 7 hours of walk was totally worth it...

Such magnetic place which would attract you from miles away. It's attraction would not be light even if you reach up to it and walk on it. Just a nature's marvel which makes everything else look smaller and worthless in front of it.

A trek treat on Himalayas. So much of knowledge about the other side of mountain life seems to have made a tad richer in experience and of course the humility and good lessons to lean on to that only mountains can teach.
