One of the most important religious fields, particularly in the Hindu myth, is the Kedarkantha trek. The Temple of Lord Kedarkantha (Shivji), which is located on the base of the top, stands for the test of time. Every year millions of pilgrims move the mountains to pray and seek Hindu blessings.
History of Kedarkantha
Uttarakhand is generally divided into great monuments. The Bull avatar of Lord Shiv walked through the region. He achieved the way to escape Pandavas and in his disguise meditated in the valley. But he fled from Kedarkantha to Kedarnath when his peace had been disrupted by local people.
The Trishul of the Lord is built in the valley to protect the place of destruction, as local hearsay also says. In 2013 the valley suffered considerable losses because of the massive inundations in the region, but the temple at Kedarnath was not affected.
About the Kedarkantha Trek
This is one of these treks, wherein in the harsh winters, you can climb the summit. It’s 4 days starting the trek to the frozen Judah Ka Talab and the snowy paths in Uttarakhand. The magical Kedarkantha Summit sunrise from 12500 Ft. seems like the sky. From the top, you can also have views of different peaks, such as Har Ki Dun and Pangarchulla.
The need to link your greater purpose with faith is so connected that you can feel the faith all around you, even if you are not a Hindu. When you begin the ascent, it sets the mood.
For your community trip, the wooded floors of the massive mountain peaks with the wilderness of Pine Trees and possible snow kiss the mountains. You also will see amazing views all around the famous summits of the mountains along with the Tons River, which is fed by glaciers, just after your base camp.
Best time to visit Kedarkantha trek
While it is possible to hike Kedarknatha at any time of the year, in winter, it is preferable from January to March because it is covered with snow and offers some amazing snow-packed views.
It’s one of the Indian treks where snowfall can be easily found in the winter near Delhi. The trek also has the most magnificent campgrounds. So don’t forget that on this wild trek you have to take your own camper gear and camp.
Temperature varies from 3°C to 8°C during the day and -5°C to -1°C during the night in the summer months of April to June. The temperature of -4°C to 6°C during the day and -8°C to -15°C at night during the post mountain period between September and December. The weather is between -6°C and 2°C in the day and -10°C to -18°C in the night, between January and April.
The Beginning Point
You will first need to reach Dehradun by bus, train, flight, or private transportation from Delhi. Then you head to Sankri – the starting point for the trek. The entire trek is about 25 km from Sankri to Kedarkantha, covered by Juda Ka Talab is a total of 4-5 days.
Dehradun has two busses, one at 5 am and one at 8 am, and one at Dehradun’s Mussoorie bus. It takes approximately Rs300/- and 10 hours to arrive from Dehradun to Sankri. The bus stop is 4 kilometers from the ISBT Mussoorie Bus Stand and a half kilometers away from the railway station. Dehradun is always well served by buses with Delhi.
A plan that has some room for movement is the best way to experience a tour. Ideally, the Kedarkantha Trek takes 4-5 days and includes some of the most beautiful views and campgrounds along the road.
Most days, you will not trek for more than 4-5 hours, so you have time to relax with your friends and enjoy the beauty. Naturally, I would recommend that you have a guide to facilitate your planning requirements.
You might need to take your own camper equipment if you are not traveling through a package visit. The Kedarkantha Trek is however fairly practical and friendly to beginners. Don’t be afraid, dear trekkers, and take one step ahead!
Drive a Delhi-Dehradun overnight bus in the night and reach the city in the morning. Dehradun. You can go to Dehradun for some time – but frankly, you have so much to look forward to, that you’d like to drive for Sankri. Before sunrise try to reach (taking into consideration your pitstops and leisure time in between). A lunch/snack break in Mussourie needs to be served. The views are foolishly green and perfect.
