Trip Itinerary

The thrilling Kedarkantha Trek begins from Dehradun city. The trekkers will be received warmly from Dehradun at 6:30 am for an onward journey to Sankri.

Sankri is located at a distance of 220kms on the National Highway 123. It’s a long scenic drive providing absolute comfort to the trekkers so that they can enjoy the beauty of the location. The scenic surroundings increase the excitement of reaching the destination and exhilarate the joy of the thrilling tour that remains yet to be experienced. The journey is a bit long and takes about evening to reach the destination. In between, one can enjoy the lunch break at the popular eateries having some local food and homemade spices. The last 22 km to Sankri is all the more exciting since it travels through Govind National Park which is famous for its avid collection of flora typical of this region and not found in any other location of the country. The expected time to reach Sankri is 5 pm. However on reaching the destination, one can check in to the prior booked hotel and our representative can help with the check-in formalities. After freshening up, since the evening is free for leisure one can enjoy indoors and relax or can set out to explore the beautiful Sankri village where there are local shops and a small market selling mostly daily goods and a collection of few dhabas. You can also interact with your fellow trekkers in the meantime. The BSNL network is quite erratic here so getting the phone lines can be a little difficult. One can have dinner at the hotel premises or can enjoy dinner at the dhabas to taste some local flavours and experience the cuisine of the area.
The actual trekking trip starts from Sankri. Having a fresh start after a healthy breakfast, it’s a journey straight towards Juda Ka Talab which is based at an altitude of 9100 feet. It’s a 4km trekking journey and the approximate time for reaching the same is around 5 hours.


The journey begins by moving out of Sankri village through an extension called Sor. Once the village is crossed the road takes a wide curve and climbs sharply. Moving along the stream this is the road that moves towards the Kedarkantha.

With exotic visions, the trail is wide and one can hear the sounds of running streams all through but may not be in view till much further. On the way, one can view remote villages where women and kids are found carrying bundles of wooden logs, wooden sticks and dry leaves to utilize them for household cooking and setting up night fire. Boars, martens and hares can also be spotted in this region. The scenario, however, changes a lot in the summer months when the luscious meadows remain verdant green with hilly flowers of a unique kind. Crossing few streams and continuing through the trail and rising sharp through dense oaks one can reach the beautiful pictorial spot of Jadu Ka Talab which can never be missed by any trekker due to its sharp contrasting and unique beauty.


Juda Ka Talab is an amazing destination. It is an ideal campsite with a lake on one side and pine & oak forest on the other. This stop is no less than a treat for photography lovers. Stars can be gazed during the night by making the atmosphere all cosy.

After having the morning breakfast set out for the next journey where the trail is somewhat straightforward and quite visible. The distance from Jadu Ka Talab to this destination is about 4kms and at a moderate speed, it takes about 2.5 hours to reach the place.


The track again begins through dense forests of pine and oak trees only and through the steep ridge and much more dense areas. In this trail, one will come across many shepherd huts in open meadows which are equally delightful to see. During the winter month trekking, one can easily find the traces of snow at an altitude of 10,400 feet. In the middle, one can take a long break to reenergize the body and get the enthralling view of natural extravaganza in the area. Just before reaching the Kedarkantha Base one can enjoy the fascinating views of an arc-shaped range of snow-capped mountains comprising of Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Kala Nag and Ranglana showcasing their beauty. After reaching the base, set up the tent in a preferred selected place which is open and one can enjoy a clear view of the night sky. However, it is advisable to be based in a close
group rather than in a much-scattered way in the dark.

The fourth day of the trek is aimed at reaching Kedarnath Peak. Today, the trekkers will elevate from 11,250 feet to 12,500 feet. The schedule of the day includes hiking to Kedarkantha peak and then again descending back till Hargaon camp which is based at 8900 feet.

The total journey comprises of 6kms altogether and takes about 7 hours of time at a moderate speed. The day begins early with a filling breakfast and enjoying the sunrise from the Kedarkantha meadows which is simply pure and divine.

The way to the top can be made through several trails but it is better to take the main trail as its keep rising at an even level. On this route, the trekkers need to again cover a few portions of the oak forest but the journey through this trail is much easier and faster. Climbing through the forest till its end, one can find the Kedarkantha peak much closer. Towards the end of the trail and close to the top the trek becomes a little difficult and can be a little strenuous especially for the first time trekkers. At the top of the peak, there is a beautiful yet small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati.
Today, the time for descending further to Sankri takes about 4 hours or more at a moderate speed. After having the breakfast, pack your bags to descend further through a more clearly marked well-paved pathway, laden with small stones. You can fill water here for the rest of the track. A little further down the trail comes to a ridge from where it gives a splendid view of Har ki Dun valley.

By morning, descending a furthermore through the dense forests we will reach Sankri. The last 2500 feet is filled with dense pine forests. On reaching the base, the vehicle will be waiting for you.


It’s time for bidding adieu.

The distance approximately takes about 10 hours to reach. Scenic ambience and lovely surroundings mark the roads back to Dehradun city.

The trip back to Dehradun reaches around 7 o clock evening time. For all those who wish to stay in Dehradun and enjoy the place for a day or more can book a hotel in the city and spend some more lovely days in the midst the beautiful Himalayas and can pray to visit sooner.
