Kedarkantha an Ideal Trek for beginners

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 129

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.

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.

Detailed Itinerary (Roopkund Trek)

Day 1: Kathgodam to Lohajung

Arrive early at the Kathgodam Railway station. Various overnight trains run from Delhi and other cities(For more information click here). We will meet you at the station. We begin our drive from Kathgodam to Lohajung (Starting point for the Roopkund Trek ). Although this drive is long it is very scenic for the most part as we will be driving along rivers before turning right into the beautiful Pindar valley. En route you will be crossing Almora. Founded in 1568, Almora, is a district in the Kumaon division of Uttarakhand . Overnight stay in forest guest house/tents.

Day: 2 Lohajung to Didna Village

The trek to Roopkund Lake starts from Lohajung to a village called Didna. This will be our first camp of the Roopkund trek. Initially the trek is a steady climb up to the Lohajung pass and then downhill to the Bedni River popularly known as the “Bedni Ganga”. We then cross a bridge and then start climbing through oak & bamboo forests to the village of Didna. We will cross the village and continue walking up to a meadow where we will camp for the night. Overnight in tents.

Day 3: Didna village to Ali Bugyal

We get up early in the morning and do some stretching exercises. It is essential that we stretch ourselves properly to avoid muscle problems through the trek.

Today’s stretch of the Roopkund trek is a steep one through oak trees and large stands of bamboo. You will after this climb start enjoying the stunning views of Garhwal Himalayan peaks and reach the alpine grazing meadow called Ali bugyal. AliBugyal is as beautiful as Bedni and lies on top a hill and from there you can enjoy the views of unending vistas in all directions. This is probably one of the finest camping sites in the Garhwal Himalayas. Overnight stay in tents.

Day 4: Ali Bugyal to Ghora Lotani

Today is a comparatively easy day. Walk while listening to chirping birds and admiring the beauty of our surroundings. After few hours of trekking you will be on other side of the ridge and the view from this point is absolutely Fanta bullous. Ghora Lotani on the Roopkund trek is a brilliant campsite and offers you great views all around. We should reach the campsite by the afternoon with enough to relax and acclimatize to the weather conditions and altitude. Overnight camp at Lotani.

Day 5: Ghora Lotani to Bhagwabasa

The day’s snow trek will bring you to an altitude of 14,500 ft from 12,500 ft. This part of the Roopkund Lake trek is to be considered as high altitude trekking and you can feel the effects of this during trekking from Ghora Lotani to Bhagwabasa. Shortness of breath, mild headache and tiredness are some very common in high altitude trekking. Trek slowly and steadily, stop for water after every hour for 2 to 5 minutes. A steep and zig zag route takes you to Kalu Vinayak. Compared to the beauty of Ali Bugyal, it is hard to imagine a more desolate, boulder strewn campsite than that of Bhugu Basa (4100m). It is exposed to icy northern winds that whip around the stone shelter huts. Overnight stay in tents.

Day 6: Bhagwabasa to Roopkund Lake.Back to Bedni Bugyal via Bhagwabasa

The D day of the Roopkund Trek is here. We will start the day as early as 5 AM. We will start early as during early hours snow is tough due to lower temperatures and it’s easy to negotiate without getting your shoes drenched in water. Roopkund Lake is a 5 km gradual up-hill climb from Bhagwabasa. We will have steep climb towards the end of the trail to reach the Roopkund Lake. It would take about 3 – 3½ hours to reach the Lake. A further trek of around half an hour takes to the highest point of Roopkund Lake trek Junar Gali. Then we head back for our campsite at Bedni Bugyal. The views from the alpine camp at Bedni Bugyal extends west across the main Himalaya Range as far as Gangotri, while the peaks of Trisul and Nanda Ghunti provide an awesome backdrop.

Day 7: Bedni Bugyal to Lohajung via Wan.

Return trek from Bedni Bugyal via Wan. You would see the end of meadows after a few minutes. On a clear day, you would be astonished by looking at the Trishul on your way back from Bedni Bugyal to Wan at Kanakdhar. There is a steep descend and then a short climb from Bedni Bugyal. On our way we will go through a Rhododendron forest. You would have a steep descent for the Neel Ganga. On reaching Wan we drive to Lohajung. Overnight stay at Lohajung.

Day 8: Lohajung to Kathgodam

After getting to the base camp at Lohajung and finishing the Roopkund trek, you might think of spending a day at Lohajung. This is a great place to relax and chill out and our rewarding trek.Early morning start drive towards Kathgodam. At Kathgodam our trek ends.
