Event Overview

Kedarkantha trek is to reach the peak in the mountain of the Tons river valley. It is the most beautiful rounded peak and most sought after snow trekking destinations in India. Even in winter, a trek to Kedarkantha is possible as the trail path is through the dense forests and vast meadows. One will get soaked into the aura as we walk through the protected area of Govind national park. Our destination path is full of pictorial view nestled at the height of 3810 meters covering a consolidated distance of 20kms — a delightful marvel for all trekkers with the verdant greenery, lush landscapes, myriad collection of flora, frozen ponds, to the sights of mesmerizing peaks.
