Kedarkantha an Ideal Trek for beginners

Posted By : adminwebnoo/ 546

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.
