Post breakfast we start our trek and head towards juda talab. The path goes through Saud village and is a gentle climb. A lot of local village women will be seen on the way carrying wood and dried leaves for their cattle. The campsite is located near the Juda Lake and is a much closed camping site surrounded by tall trees and mountain slopes; without any wind or views. We reach by afternoon and stay in camps.
Day 3: JUDA TALAB TO KEDAR KANTH MEADOW - 6kms
We start post breakfast and trek through the pine and oak trees to reach the open field below the summit. This camping site has excellent views and is the highlight of the trek. There are green pastures nearby and the views towards Himachal are unending. We camp here for the night.
Day 4: VISIT KEDARKANTHA PEAK (3850m) AND TREK BACK TO SANKRI
It's a long day today. We start early post breakfast and try to reach the top of the ridge by noon. It's a climb of over 2 hours but the views are very rewarding.
