The Kedarkantha Peak is one of the most sought after snow trekking destinations in India. With falling winter snow it’s a mesmerizing pictorial view and what’s more attractive, is the view of the Mighty Himalayas from the trails right to the top. Nestled at a height of 3810 meters which is about 12,500 feet this is an ideal trekking trail which covers a consolidated distance of 20 kms.

This trek has some of the loveliest campsites in Indian Himalayas. Khujey is a meadow, a couple of hundred metres long and about a hundred wide. It is surrounded by forests on one side. Near the forests, we have abandoned wooden huts that once belonged to the local wandering shepherds. Bhoja Dadi is a remote camp in the wilderness, close to the Kedarkantha summit. You can observe wonderful sunsets, sitting on one of the rocks by the campsite. These are settings right out of fairytales.
