Dehradun – Sankri 8 hour drive
  • The journey will start at 6.00 am from Dehradun Railway Station to Sankri and it will take around 9 hrs. We will drive via Dehradun and Mussoorie, alongside the Yamuna, and also passes by beautiful pine forests. On reaching Sankri, we will explore the scenic hamlet to prepare for the trek. Overnight stay at Sankri.
Sankri Base Camp to Juda-ka-Talab - 4 Km (9100 Feet)
  • Our trek commences from today for a distance of 4km. We will start our trek to Juda-ka-Talab by moving out of Sankri, towards Sor and upwards on an inclined road that moves parallel to a beautiful stream. We cross many babbling brooks amidst the dense forest, whilst walking on a lush carpet of maple and pine leaves. The sounds of the streams mingled with the Twitter of birds and the calls of the langur greet your eyes. Juda-ka-Talab is a pristine lake surrounded by pines. It is situated at a height of 9100 feet. Overnight stay in tents.
Juda-ka-Talab to Kedarkantha Base – 2.5km (11200 Feet)

Today we start our trek to the Kedarkantha base camp which is at a height of 11,200 feet and is 2.5km away from Juda-ka-Talab. The distance can be covered at a leisurely pace post breakfast. We enter the beautiful forest once again and as we climb higher, the ridge gets steeper. As if to compensate for its steepness, the landscape is dotted with charming not meadows. We will reach the campsite by the afternoon. Overnight stay in tents.

Kedarkantha base camp to Kedarkantha Summit (3,810 m) and back to Hargaon (2,713 m)
  • This is the day you’ve been working hard for! The trek from the base camp to the summit is not a long one. On reaching the summit, your jaw is going to drop and your eyes will not blink. The Kedarkantha summit is marked by an arrangement of stones with a Trishul that points to the sky. The summit offers an astonishing 360-degree view of the peaks of Uttarakhand and the Chaainsheel Pass and Kailash ranges of Himachal. From the top, you can also see the Har Ki Dun valley below. The story behind Kedarkantha is an interesting one. The name literally means the throat of Lord Shiva (Kedar refers to Lord Shiva and Kantha means Throat). The legend has it that this peak was supposed to be the original Kedarnath temple but Lord Shiva, who disguised himself as a cowhiding from the Pandavas was disturbed during meditation by the villagers. The interruption made him change his location from this peak to the present Kedarnath temple. We hike back to the base camp after spending a good time on the summit. Post lunch we head towards Hargaon (2 km trail). Hargaon is a large camping area en route to Sankri. An overnight stay is required before saying goodbye to the beautiful place.
Hargaon to Sankri

Today we head down to Sankri. It takes about 2-3 hours to finish this 4 km trek route of the day. For the rest of the day, you can explore the village of Sankri, which is known to be the heart of the Har Ki Dun valley, along with other villages like Gangad and Osla. Sankri is a typical “Pahari” village, with unbeatable hospitality offered by the locals. It is also the last road head to the Govind Ballabh Pant Wildlife Sanctuary
