What’s Kedarkantha weather in February?

Posted By : Dinkar Kamat/ 227 0

Kedarkantha is one of the best winter treks in Uttarakhand. The peak stands at a majestic height of 12,500 ft and is part of Garhwal Himalayas. The difficulty level of the trek is easy to moderate. The entire trekking route is covered under a blanket of snow from December to April. Kedarkantha weather in February can be at its coldest, and if you wish to walk on a frozen lake, then travelling in February is your best bet.

 

Anyone who wishes to trek to Kedarkantha has to pass through the state capital Dehradun. You can easily make your way to Dehradun as it is well-connected to all major Indian cities via air, rail, and road. Once you arrive there, you will have to take a cab or bus to reach Sankri, the starting point of the trek. The distance of Sankri from Kedarkantha peak is around 10 km and requires an uphill climb. The entire route has gradual ascends and descends, making it suitable for beginners as well as first-time trekkers.

February is one of the coldest months in Kedarkantha. From Sankri, the entire trekking route will be covered in a layer of snow. This can make trekking through the route a little difficult. Once you begin the climb, your first stop will be at Juda Ka Talab. During February, the lake will be completely frozen, which will make the trekking experience all the more enchanting. From the frozen lake, you will move up towards Kedarkantha base camp, before proceeding on to the summit.

It’s worth mentioning that Kedarkantha weather in February can be extremely cold. The trek route is made up of wide-open clearings, where you will have to face strong winds. You may slip and fall multiple times. The average temperature will remain below zero, dipping several times lower during the nights. You may also have to trek in the dark. Although the majority of the route is easy to cover, the last few 100 ft may feel challenging. You will require walking sticks and snow boots for the entire journey. Snow may also fall throughout the expedition, so you have to be prepared to face the weather before you begin trekking.

 

Why Choose February?
