Kedarkantha Trek with Rishikesh Highlights

Kedarkantha Trek with Rishikesh Overview

Kedarkantha is not just a trendsetter, but also one of India's most popular and best winter treks. This is due to a variety of factors. Its popularity stems from the views, topography, flora, and animals, as well as the ease with which it may be completed. The name Kedarkantha is a combination of the terms Kedar and Kantha, which means "Throat of Lord Shiva." This journey is intertwined with a plethora of fascinating mythical stories. Kedarkantha should not be confused with Kedarnath, as the two are quite different. Kedarkantha is a six-day hike through Govind PashuVihar National Park. As you begin your ascent, you will be able to see the peaks of Swargarohini, Bandarpunch, and Kalanag. Originally, the area served as a pasture site for shepherds and a temple for locals. Over time, it grew in popularity among hikers and became a bustling tourist destination. Kedarkantha peak, one of India's first commercial winter climbs, has captured the imagination and hearts of millions of Indian trekkers over the years. Its beauty captivates both your eyes and your heart. Trekking on Kedarkantha is much more than it appears in a few photos on your screen. It provides you with a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.
