Himalayan Winter Trekking Expedition Kedarkantha 2018-2019

Kedarkantha is a classic winter trek. Adorned with ravishing beauty of falling snow and fringed with pine trees, Kedarkantha is one of the most sought after snow trekking destinations in India. The trek provides a great opportunity for trekkers to see the scenic beauty and experience the life of remote villages of Garhwal Himalayas. Surrounding the Tons river valley, with the snow capped mountain ranges in the horizon, and rich flora and fauna of the national park, the Kedarkantha trail is an all through enjoyable hiking experience. In clear weather, renowned peaks like the Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch and the Black Peak can be seen from the summit. Temperatures are low with residual snow remaining intact on higher altitude, specially on top and even till base camp.
