Kedartal is considered one of the best high-altitude treks in Uttarakhand. This one is for the experienced
trekkers who have done many treks in the Himalayas and are seeing a more thrilling adventure. This trek
is classified under the difficult category. Nevertheless, it offers an unmatched experience that one
should not miss.
In this arduous yet thrilling adventure, we climb to the Kedartal, which is nestles between some of the
highest greater Himalayan peaks. These are Mt Thalaysagar, Mt Bhrigupanth, Manda parvat, Mt
Gangotri and Mt Jogin etc. This is one of the rare treks where you get to come into the close proximity
of greater Himalayan peaks.
You will also realize that this trek brings you to one of the remotest places in the Indian Himalayas. You
will not see any human settlements here because the environment even though it seems majestic and
serene, can be very hostile. On the other hand, this trek provides you a kind of solitude and peace which
is rare. You are not going to listen to even a single sound from modern society.
This trek needs you to be comfortable in changing mountain landscapes and environments because
things change pretty quickly here. You will be quickly gaining altitude and will need to climb on steep
trails. You need to be fit and mentally strong to wade through this challenging yet rewarding trek. You
should do as much preparation as you can to join this trek because it is indeed one of the most
rewarding experiences. Though the terrain is tricky and sometimes extreme, what you get in return is
much more than what you give.
