Kedarkantha an Ideal Trek for beginners

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 27

The Kedarkantha trek is a 6 days and 5 night’s round trip trek which starts and ends at Dehradun. The difficulty level of the trek is moderate and is a great option for all those who do not have much experience trekking.

Kedarkantha Terrific Snow Trek for Beginners

With the advent of the New Year, I, like a billion other people, decided to turn my life around this year. And what better way to do that, than escaping right into the lap of Mother Nature i.e. The Himalayas to break free from my boring, mechanized, city life and rejuvenate. Because of my quest for adventure and unforgettable experiences, and my lack of trekking experience, The Kedarkantha trek seemed like the perfect option. The Kedarkantha trek is a 6 days and 5 night’s round trip trek which starts and ends at Dehradun.  The difficulty level of the trek is moderate and is a great option for all those who do not have much experience trekking. Kedarkantha is a beautiful rounded peak situated in the picturesque tons river valley. It is located in the Singtur range of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand, India and is elevated at a height of 3800 meters above the sea level.

DAY 1: I was travelling from Delhi with a few friends but we were lucky enough to meet some of our trek mates on the train itself which gave us more time to interact before the trek began. Upon reaching Dehradun, we easily found the Cab that was to take us to the camp site at Sankri. The drive was absolutely beautiful and gave us a taste of what lies ahead. Driving along the tons river was definitely a highlight of the trip. Upon reaching Sankri we were divided into groups and allocated our tents for the night.

DAY 2: The next day of Kedarkantha trek we began with a 6 AM wake up call, followed by super fun exercise session. Today was a little cloudy and the entire setting looked straight out of a travel magazine. (One of those 1000 things to do before you die articles) After a heavy breakfast of cornflakes, masala chai and paranthas, we began our trek at 8 AM sharp. We trekked through dense pine forests with some sensational views. Our Kedarkantha trekking instructor familiarized us with several techniques to minimize breaks and reaching the next camp site in time. From spotting wild boars, hares and langoors to drinking the sweetest water from the brooks, this day gave us memories that we will cherish forever. Upon trekking for a few more hours we reached our next camp site at Juda ka Talab.  As the sun set and the stars came up over this picturesque view of snow clad mountains and the lake in the centre, we made our tents and food. Although I should’ve been exhausted from all the walking and trekking, sleep did not come to me for a long time. I kept thinking about this poem by Sanober khan:

“I do not want to sleep,

For fear I might miss the twinkle of the brightest star.

For fear I may never know,

How the moon glimmers in the darkest hour.”


DAY 3: I woke up early in the morning to see the magical sunrise at the Juda ka Talab with the golden glow spreading over the snow clad peaks and reflecting over the lake spreading warmth all over the clearing. A morning this beautiful always makes me retrospect, makes my city life problems seem so trivial, and makes me want to believe in a god for only he could’ve thought of something as divine as this. Today was a comparatively lighter day. We were given ample amount of time to enjoy and explore the wilderness. Being a photography enthusiast I managed to get some fantastic shots of the scenic beauty around me. After a lunch of delicious dal chawal and Aaloo Sabji, prepared by our cook Mr. Atar Singh ji (with our help of course), we trekked for 4 hours to reach the next campsite  that is the Kedarkantha base camp.


DAY 4: Today, after an early breakfast, we started trekking to summit the Kedarkantha peak. We cleared several meadows covered in gorgeous wild flowers and grazing cattle. Despite the exhaustion, the feeling of summiting a peak is so exquisite, that it almost instantaneously filled us with energy. The mountain was summited with the 15 of us running full speed towards the top, yelling on top of our lungs! The view from the peak was, for lack of a better word, DREAMY! We had the best lunch of our lives in this mesmerizing setting of snow clad peaks around us and only the sound of our laughter filling the air. After observing, exploring and photographing this peak, we spend the night camping at the base.

Kedarkantha Trek

DAY 5: We followed a stone market trail in Hargaon which led us to a dense pine and walnut forest. The minute we entered the forest, all our senses were heighten. We could smell the fresh fragrance of the leaves, we could hear the birds chirping, I also spotted a carcass of a wild boar I think! The walk was always accompanied by the jokes and funny banter between us. We got a few glimpses of the Har-ki-dun valley also and spent the night at Sankri.

Day 6:  This was the last day of the trek and we were driving back from Sankri to Dehradun. We had to say our goodbye’s to our trek instructors here only. As we drove through the same scenic road between Sankri and Dehradun, I thought of how many changes I see in myself in only 6 days. Everything from my appearance to my thought process has changed drastically. The air in the bus was filled with hope. Hope of staying in touch, hope of meeting again in the future, hope of having many more such life altering experiences! It was indeed my best new year’s resolution..YET.

“Winter has its own charm: The Kuari Pass Trek, Himalayas”

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 29

This trek, popularly known across the country as the Winter Kuari Pass, proved to be a test for physical and mental fitness, enjoyment, amicable acquaintances, gaining a sense of personal achievement, and, of course, getting closer to Mother Nature.

“Every mountain top is within reach. All you need to do is have faith in yourself and keep climbing”
DECEMBER 26-31, 2015:
My quest for adventure coupled with the passion for exploring new destinations led me to enroll for the winter trek in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh. This trek, popularly known across the country as the Winter Kuari Pass, proved to be a test for physical and mental fitness, enjoyment, amicable acquaintances, gaining a sense of personal achievement, and, of course, getting closer to Mother Nature. The name “Kuari” essentially means doorway and is a Himalayan high mountain pass located in the Garhwal district of Himachal, south of the Tibetan border and on the western rim of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary biosphere reserve. It basically falls in the Chamouli district of Uttarakhand. This famous trek is also known as the Lord Curzon trail, named after the former British Viceroy of India – Lord Curzon).
Day 1: There are daily overnight trains from Delhi to Haridwar. Trekkers/trekking groups try and reach Haridwar early morning as that is the main assembly point from where the trek coordinators take over and ensure that everyone has arrived. Appropriate transport is provided (bus, tempo traveler, jeeps) depending on the number of people who have registered for the trek and then begins the 10-11 h long journey from Haridwar to Joshimath. As we drive through Rishikesh and gain altitude, one gets the feeling that something dramatic is about to happen soon. You may not necessarily be the protagonist, but I can assure you will definitely be part of all the action and reaction – you heard me, right! I am referring to high-altitude sickness, which in most cases is accompanied by vomiting, headaches, frequent pit stops, and well! more puking. I’m not being rude or judgmental here as this is common in the mountains and could happen to anybody. As far as my bus journey was concerned, I accidentally boarded the wrong bus with a couple of trekking groups who were traveling together from Mumbai and Delhi. There were close to 20-25 folks in this bus. I was actually wondering where my group was, but luckily when we halted for breakfast around 10:00 AM, one of the trek coordinators approached me and asked me to trade places with another individual on another bus. On inquiring further, I understood that the group through which I had registered was aboard that bus and I was the only person missing – like I always say, adventure never leaves me alone.When traveling in the mountains, it’s best to not stuff yourself; however, you can’t afford to miss out on the hot paranthas from “pahadiyon Ka tawa,” “aloo/chole ki sabji,” and masala “chai.” In my opinion, if you miss this opportunity, it is considered as “pahadi khane ki tauheen.” I had one aloo parantha and some sabji – just enough to get me through the next 3-4 hour uphill drive. The rest of the drive was normal with 2 more stops, one for lunch and the other for evening tea.During this long and somewhat tiring journey, one can see the confluence of the Bhagirathi and Alaknanda rivers at Devprayag; both these rivers form the great Ganges. The distant mountain ranges are a treat to watch at sundown and you can try and capture the beauty from either your camera or better still, in thy mind – the latter will have the landscapes captured far better, I bet!


Just as I thought the evening couldn’t get any better, I received a very “pleasant” surprise at around 7:30 PM when the bus reached Joshimath. For some reason, all of us got off the bus (possibly to stretch our joints and catch some fresh air). What followed was utter chaos and we were left to wonder where we would eventually be staying for the night. There seemed to be some miscommunication amongst the trekking coordinators onsite and to make things worse, our trek leader was unavailable and had conveniently handed our responsibility to another coordinator. We were furious and some of us felt we made the biggest mistake of our lives by registering via this trekking group. After about 45 mins-1 h of shouting, disagreement, and Furore, the bus driver complied with our demands, and was asked by the coordinator to drive us further to Govindghat, approx 25 km from Joshimath. Apparently, our hotel booking was done at Govindghat as the ones at Joshimath was overbooked. This portion of the drive was particularly painful as the roads were narrow and rocky (possibly because of landslides that are common in mountain areas), and as expected, all of us were dead tired and starved. Room arrangements at the hotel were quite good with provision for hot water. Dinner was amazing and lived up to everybody’s palette.


Day 2: After breakfast, we were driven down to Dhak Village – our starting point. Basic instructions about do’s and don’ts were provided to us by our trek leader as we were about to begin our ascent to over 2000 m. I trekked for 6-7 km crossing villages, flat grounds and green fields, and some steep climbs to reach the first campsite at Gulling (2600 m). One cannot ignore the sheer beauty of the mountains during the ascent and photograph enthusiasts have their cameras ready for landscape pictures, and of course, selfies and groupfies. Needless to say, I am one amongst them and that can be proved by the number of photographs in my album. I reached our first campsite by 3:30 PM and settled in. It was exciting for me to see our tents being set up from what looked like the center of the valley surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks. I took a panoramic 360 degree view of the mountain ranges and breathed in the fresh thin cold air. Within one hour of our arrival at the campsite, we were given hot tea and biscuits and were told by our trek leader to get ample rest during the night as another day of high altitude walking lay ahead of us. As I stood there sipping on my tea, I continued to gaze at the peaks, some over 7000 m (Dunagiri) and remained awestruck by the mesmerizing beauty that surrounded me. Mountains definitely have their own charm. Temperatures began to plummet as it was almost dusk. When in the mountains, it’s advisable to discover ways for the body to acclimatize to the weather and prepare for the upcoming high-altitude walks. With this theoretical perspective, I decided to walk around the camp to keep myself warm and adapt to my surroundings. Most of my companions resigned to their tents and layered themselves appropriately to fend off the cold. I joined them an hour later following which we got to talking and knowing each other better. Our group ended the night on a high by playing a game of dumbcharades and having a sumptuous dinner.



Day 3: This was the shortest trekking day as I climbed from 2600 m-3000 m to reach the second campsite, Bhurtal. Along the way, I stopped for 30-40 minutes to have snow fights and take group pictures in various poses. Snow does excite everybody and for a few moments, everyone forgot about the fatigue that they experienced to reach there. The ascent to Bhurtal was mainly through densely populated rhododendron forests with puddles of snow everywhere. Before I knew it, I reached the second campsite. This was meant to be my base for the next 2 nights. It was around 12:30 PM when I reached there and we were served lunch (Chinese pulav). The second campsite was larger compared to the first, and if I’m not mistaken, those flat grounds are termed “bugyals” or meadows in the mountains. Approximately 70% of the surroundings were covered in snow and tents were set up for the different groups; mine was right at the edge of the “bugyal” and I was fortunate to have a perfect spot for a campfire for the night. I helped my group-mates in gathering sticks for the same. The second half of my day was spent in trekking to Bhurtal lake. This lake was half frozen and provided the much needed eerie feeling as it was located in the dense forest, where the sun’s rays hardly reached. Moreover, it was already 4:30 PM and the temperatures started to decline. After this short hike, I returned to my campsite and was served hot vegetable soup followed by an early dinner, after which our group sat by the campfire and had some fun. Some of the guides joined us by the fire and shared mountain stories as we heard them with utmost attention. As I saw the moon rise from above the distant peaks, the starry night lit up and Oh! what a spectacular sight it was! I wished I had the necessary means to capture that imagery, but then again, the scene is still so clearly etched in my mind that I wouldn’t ever dare forget it. Having to bid adieu to yet another eventful day, I tucked myself into my sleeping bag and dozed off.



Day 4: The longest trek (~8 km either way) in 6-8 inches of snow through forests, mountain ridges, and snowed-in meadows were the main highlights of today. There was only one “lakshya” in everyone’s mind – to make it to the Kuari top situated at an altitude of 3640 m. I started my uphill journey at 8:15 AM and was determined and confident of reaching the top by noon. The journey wasn’t easy as we seldom got the chance to walk on even grounds; the winding paths, sharp turns, and added weight of the clamp-ons under my shoes summed up the thrill (and possibly chill) quotient. I took a short break at one point from where several peaks including Dunagiri (7066 m), Lampak 1, 2, and 3 (~6100 m), Hathi-Ghoda (6727 m), and Bandarpooch (6316 m) could be viewed. Finally, I made it to the top by 12:40 PM, and standing there at a height of 3640 m, I wanted to shout out loud and let the world know about my achievement. Trust me! The feeling cannot be described in words and one needs to be physically present at that very point to experience what it feels like to be on top of the world. It changes your entire perspective of life as such and makes you earnestly respect the real beauty of Mother Nature. There is wonder in whatever you see. I spent an hour there, had my packed lunch, clicked some “victory” pictures, and got prepared for my descent. The weird and partly dangerous quotient about mountain weather is that it’s completely unpredictable. During my descent, the winds changed course, which made it slightly difficult to walk. The idea was to cross the mountain ranges with minimal stops along the way and reach the forests. Another wonderful experience!


Day 5: The last day of my adventure – I started my descent from the second campsite post breakfast around 10:00 AM and reached Dhak Village by 2:30 PM. At 12:30 PM, some of us happily engaged ourselves with the village kids to play a game of cricket. We were defeated on 3 occasions; nonetheless, it was great fun and the village kids loved our company.



Back in the city, I look back at these days and cherish each and every moment. I found peace in the challenges that I faced in this journey, made new friends, and took back several memories to last a lifetime. Mountains have their own way of charming people and one needs to climb one to believe it.
