  • A magnificent Kedarkantha peak standing tall at an elevation of 12,500 ft within Govind Wildlife Sanctuary in Uttarkashi district of Uttrakhand is a representation of one of the places we may name a paradise on Earth. Taking its name from Hindu mythology, 'Kedarkantha,' which means 'throat of Lord Shiva,' is claimed to be a location where Lord Shiva pondered before traveling to 'Kedarnath.' It's an exotic journey rich in flora and fauna, changing tree lines, gorgeous campsites, snowy mountain ranges, frozen lakes, and much more. Despite being an all-year walk, it is most popular in the winter for its beautiful beauty and the tranquillity of the whiteness all around. The majestic Himalayas are breathtaking, but their true beauty lies in winters.
  • The journey to the delights of 'Kedarkantha' begins at a little settlement called Sankri,' a hiking hamlet. Sankri is the last road-head settlement at the foot of the Himalayas, serving as a gateway to the euphoric world. The "Kedarkanth" trip is around 20 kilometers from 'Sankri' and takes approximately 6 days to complete. The finest thing is that the hike concludes where it began, at 'Sankri.' The temperature during the walk is favorable in comparison to other Himalayan treks, which is why it is gaining popularity. The temperature swings from 8 to 20 degrees Celsius during the day and drops to -10 degrees Celsius at night.
  • KedarKanth offers a variety of scenic beauty along the journey, and from the summit, the horizon expands to thirteen Himalayan peaks nearby, glamorizing the vista even more and sending chills down the spine. It's a 20-kilometer trip to paradise with a gradient of 6,400 feet (Sankri) to 12,500 feet. The difficulty level of this trek is moderate, making it suitable for first-timers. This journey never fails to captivate you, keeping you spellbound from the moment you walk through the gates into the 'Govind Sanctuary' until you step out. We prioritize enhancing your experience with our services and ensuring that you have a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.

Preparation for Kedarkantha Trek

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 Hampta Pass 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 at 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, take 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 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).

I recently did kedarkantha with you guys and I was more than thrilled! The place was just beyond beauty! The experience just blew me away. All the prerequisites were taken care of and the quality of trek leadership, equipments, camps was just more than satisfactory! The trek leader and the support staff was humble and skilled! They were motivating and had a zeal for the mountains. I am definitely coming back for some more treks! Please let me know if there are any upcoming treks that I could undertake. Thank you, guys!

I did Kedarkantha trek with HAT. I was alone but still they didn't cancel the trek. Really appreciated that. Also Maninder Sir was always prompt in his reply on Wassapp and provided all sort of information I required. HAT delivered what they promised. They have hired very knowledgeable guides who are local and helps you with all kind of help on route. The food they provide was top quality. They provided gajar halwa and Kheer and Pasta which frankly speaking I didn't expect. Also the hospitality at Sankri make you feel home. No doubt will do my next trek with them. Just go for it.

I found the trek team and the trek leader very professional. Each meal served was hot, freshly cooked and wholesome. Consciously, HAT was providing food which was not factory made and comes in bio-nondegradable packing. Through the trek they continued to emphasize on the need to keep the nature free of any trash. They chose a route not taken by other teams so the trail was not crowded and clean.

The Kedarkantha trekking was the first Himalayan trek experience for me and HAT has made my experience one of its kind! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. What I also realized was that HAT just does not want us to trek a summit, they create and curate a complete life experience. It was the small things that mattered the most - as simple as an encouraging wake-up call, the 10 minutes of silence on the summit, and the postcard. I was in tears at the summit of the beauty of the Himalayas. The trek leaders left no stone unturned to make us comfortable and motivated us every single minute. The stories we have exchanged with him, the star-gazing experience, everything is so dear to my heart and I cannot wait to trek with HAT again. Thank you, truly.
