Plan The Unplanned in association with IWasThere brings you one of the finest Himalayan Winter treks out there suitable for those looking to attempt their first Himalayan trek as well as the more experienced trekkers looking for a quick Himalayan getaway.
If you have been longing for a high altitude Himalayan trek through the snowfields and gaze at the mighty peaks kissing the sky, then this surely is the thing for you! There are very few treks in the Indian Himalayas which boasts of being an easy summit trek.
Summit climbs are generally arduous and need technical mountaineering skills as well as require a lot of preparation. But Kedarkantha, definitely, is one of those rare summit treks which can be done by beginners and even during peak winters. Very few treks can be done during the winters and this is what makes the Kedarkantha trek very enticing. The whole landscape is magical with snow falling over numerous pine trees which makes Kedarkantha one of the most sought after treks in the Indian Himalayas.
Trekkers can enjoy the Snowy campsites and also fresh snowfall during the winters. And the feeling of summiting a peak is unparalleled which also makes it very adventurous.
