Breakfast


What is the best time to do Kedarkantha trek?

Snow starts to set in around the middle of December and stays as late as the first week of April, which makes this a perfect choice for people who are looking to trek in winter. If you want to walk through verdant green forests and myriad flowers with views of snowy peaks, then summer is the time to go. Whichever month you choose, you not be disappointed. The trek is great throughout the year except from the monsoon months, and it will be a tough choice to make when you want to go on this stunning trek.

What kind of fitness level is expected for Kedarkantha trek?

The trail to Kedarkantha is a well laid out path that is mostly straight and ascends as you gain altitude.This trek is for beginners, but you still need to be physically prepared for the trek, especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle. We recommend you start working out 3-4 weeks before the trek, by jogging or walking briskly for at least half an hour everyday, and doing aerobics, which will help build up your stamina.

What is the scenario of network connectivity here?

Kedarkantha is a very remote place, so most of the mobile networks do not work here, but you can carry a BSNL sim, which offers better connectivity than others.

Should I carry medicines for the trek?

Yes, it is always best to carry a medical kit.

What distance will I be trekking each day?

You will be covering around 4-6 km everyday which will take an average of 4-5 hours. However, the longest you will trek will be on the day you summit Kedarkantha peak, because you will return to the basecamp on the same day.

Can I drink alcohol or smoke on the trek?

Drinking alcohol on mountains is always a bad idea, as the alcohol makes your body dehydrated and in the mountains, dehydration is one of the major causes for altitude sickness. You also shouldn’t smoke, because then you would require more oxygen, and the mountains have thin air to breathe.
