Season’s first snowfall in the Himalayas

Posted By : Diksha Kumar/ 131 0

Hey guys! The first snowfall of the season has already blessed the Himalayan Mountains and we are ready to trek!  It has finally snowed in the Har Ki Dun Valley and Kedarkantha and we are ready for trekking in the soft white snow. So what are you waiting for? Head on to magical winter wonderlands and give yourself a beautiful gift of adventures this Christmas!

Prepare yourself to trek through snow-clad mountains, narrow trails, and thick forests and relish the panoramic views that you will treasure for a lifetime as we bring you two of our best, snow-filled winter treks for you to join and enjoy!

When the first snow of the season touches the ground in the middle of December, the mountains turn magical. And this picturesque snow-filled landscape is perfect for a winter trek! Even though in India, there are not many treks that can be considered as winter treks and with plenty of snowfall in the Himalayas during the winter season, most of the prevalent trekking routes are not accessible to trekkers and adventure junkies.  However, there are some trekking routes which can qualify as snowy winter treks.

Kedarkantha Trek is a classic winter trek. The trek provides a great opportunity for trekkers to see the scenic beauty and experience the life of remote villages of Garhwal Himalayas. Kedarkantha Trek lies in the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park in Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand.

Of the many treks we carry out, Kedarkantha is one of the most popular winter treks because of the enchanting views and beautiful campsites. We run Kedarkantha batches all December until the end of January. After that, the trek routes are too filled with snow to even walk on. The trek is open again later in March until April.

Looks like the trekkers are already enjoying the first snow.

The Har Ki Dun means Valley of Gods; this valley is a treat for the first-time trekkers and nature lovers. Har Ki dun is a moderate trek which takes you to the one of the least explored places in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand and best suitable for the first-time trekkers in the Himalayas and also who are experienced in other parts of Himalayas. Sankri serves as the base for Har Ki Dun Trek which is common to other treks like Kedarkantha Trek, Ruinsara Lake Trek etc.

Although the Har Ki Dun winter trek is in the same locale as Kedarkantha trek, it is not as popular in the winter season but that does not stop trekkers to enjoy the beautiful trek.

This year, we are running Har Ki Dun batches throughout the month of December, while the route is still trekkable. This trek is one of the favorites for trekkers and adventure junkies.

Have a strong fear of missing out? Then why miss out the first snowfall of the season?  Give yourself a gift for Christmas and head on to these enchanting treks and enjoy your winter holidays with us!

Trek with us this winter season!
