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.

Goechala Trek – Best of Sikkim Trekking – Renok Adventures

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 70 45

Join us at Renok on the Goechala Trek through rhododendron forests to the snow-capped peaks and glaciers below the awesome summit of Kangchenjunga .

Goechala Trek – Great views of Mt Kanchenjunga

Goechala Trek gives you the best views of Kanchenjunga – the third highest mountain in the world, provides an inspiring backdrop for the Goechala Trek. Until the discovery of the height of Mt Everest in the 19th century, Kanchenjunga was considered to be the highest mountain in the world. Viewing its huge flanks rising high above the foothills, it is not hard to understand why, while the many 7000m peaks complete an impressive panorama.

Yet there are more than mountain views to whet the appetite of the seasoned trekker. The trails lead from steamy, subtropical forest with bamboo, luxuriant ferns and orchids to temperate forest bands with ancient oak and rhododendron trees before heading to the alpine meadows that afford uninterrupted views of the East Ridge of the mighty Kanchenjunga.

Trek Duration : 10 Days 9 Nights

Cost per Person: Rs 14500 + 4.5% per person (Ex NJP Including Transport)

Book Before 31st January 2017 Cost per Person: Rs 13500 + 4.5% per person (Ex NJP Including Transport)

DETAILED ITINERARY
Day 1: New Jalpaiguri railway station to Yuksom

New Jalpaiguri Railway Station(NJP) is located in the Jalpaiguri District which is considered to be the Gateway to the Northeast. All major cities and towns are connected to NJP via the Indian Railways. The closet airport is Bagdogra Airport which is about 16km from NJP. From NJP we take a taxi to Yuksom in Sikkim. This journey will take us approximately 6 hrs. Yuksom is a beautiful town in West Sikkim which was once the capital of Sikkim. Overnight stay in Yuksom

Day 2: Yuksom(5800 feet) to Sachen (7250feet). 4 hours

This is the first day of the trek. After walking across open fields we enter the beautiful valley of the Rathong river. En route appreciate ancient Oak, Conifer and Bamboo forests and the luxuriant ferns and delicate orchids that line the trail . Yuksom (1760m) marks the entrance to the Kanchenjunga National Park. Just after leaving the village you can see Baktim on a ridge high above the confluence of the Rathong and Prek Rivers, which will give you an idea of how to pace yourself for the day. Sachen is located at about 7200 feet above sea level. At Sachen we will find a lot of Log huts were we will spend the night.

Day 3 :- Sachen (7,200 feet) – Tshoka (9,650 feet). 3 ½ – 4 hours

The trek from Sachen to Tshoka involves quite considerable attitude gain. We continue walking until we reach the bridge over the river,Perk. Prayer flags in the distance are an indication of the start of the Goechala trail. We trek through Oak and later Rhododendron forests. On the way we pass through Bakhim. Bakhim has a forest rest house and a tea and snack stall. We can stop and rest for a while and enjoy the view of the Yuksom Valley. From Bakhim, Tshoka, is about an hour. From a distance you will see a trekkers hut on a plateau.This is Tshoka. Overnight stay in Tshoka.

Day 4 :- Tshoka(9,650 feet)- Dzongri(12,980 feet) via Phedang(12,050 feet). 5-6 hours

On the fourth day we have a steep climb. You will be surrounded by Rhododendron forests all around. After about half an hour in to the trek the trail changes to a well laid out path with wooden logs. In some time we reach Phedang. At 12,000 feet and a source of water nearly Phedang is a perfect place to stop for lunch. We then continue for Dzongri. Through this leg of the trek you will be reaching over 13,000 feet, so headaches are not uncommon due to the thin air. In about 6 -7 hrs we reach Dzongri. Overnight stay at Dzongri.

Day 5 :- Dzongri (12980ft) to Dzongri top(13681ft) and back.

Today we start a steep ascend to Dzongri top which will take up about an hour. This is the highest point on the trek from where we will get a 180 degree panoramic view of the Kanchenchunja range. If we start early at 4am we can reach the top just in time for the sunrise. Experience how the golden rays of the sun interact with this magnificent mountain range. After enjoying this spectacular view we retrace our steps to Dzongri.

Day 6 :- Dzongri(12980ft) to Lamuney(13,692ft) via Kockchurang(12096ft).6-7 hours.

Beyond Dzongri, the peak of Pandim looms above the Prek Valley. Below the mountain peaks are countless hanging glaciers and snowfields that define the upper reaches of this impressive alpine valley and the route to the GoechaLa, providing a taste of the days to follow. The hanging glaciers and moraine fields leave little doubt that you are in the midst of the high mountains while the alpine meadows are particularly attractive during May. From camp, head east from Dzongri to a series of cairns above the Prek Valley. From the ridge, a steep descent though rhododendron forest leads to the riverbed before heading up along the boulder-strewn riverbed to a bridge over the Prek River. The trail leads to the meadows at Thangsing(3930m). Overnight stay at Thangsing.

 

Day 7 :- Lamuney(13,693ft) to Goechala(16,000ft) and back to Kockchurang.10-12 hours.

The trek to the rarefied climes of the GoechaLa is rewarded with unrivaled views of the massive East Ridge of Kanchenjunga high above the Talung Glacier as well as views of the high ridges and peaks that enclose the upper Prek Valley. Looking north there is a vast mountain region yet to explore, but for now the GoechaLa is as far as you are permitted to go. The pass is often shrouded in mist and cloud not long after sunrise, so an early start is necessary.

The trail heads along the far side of the lake and through moraine before crossing a sandy section alongside the Onglakhing Glacier. From here, you can see the pass at the head of the valley. However, the trek through the lateral moraine is tiring – more so if there has been a recent snowfall.The Goecha La is marked with fluttering, colourful prayer flags, framing the peak of Kanchenjunga.

Lead the same trek towards Lamuney and then move forwards to reach the destination for the day- Kockchurang. You can choose to set up your tent near the bank of the river or you can also reside in the trekkers hut.

Day 8: Kokchurang to Tshoka via Phedang. 6-7 hours

From Kockchurang we trek back to Tshoka via Phedang the way we came. It is going to be downhill walk only but you will be tired and happy at the same time as you have been to Goechala.

Day 9: Tshoka to Yuksom via Bhakim and Sachen. 6 hours.

We retrace our steps back to Yuksom via Bhakim and Sachen and reach Yuksom our base camp for Goechala Trek Trek. Next day we take a cab back to NJP.

Day10 . Back to NJP
We drive back from Yuksom to NJP.
