    Trip Description

    Kedartal Trek is a trek of a lifetime that no tourist can ever forget. For the love of nature and mountains, one should take a break from one’s fast-paced schedule and go for one of the finest trekking experiences in the world. Kedartal Trek makes it all available for you. Catching the reflection of the Thalaysagar peak in the emerald Kedartal Lake is a moment to behold for ages. Thalaysagar is considered the most beautiful peak in India, after Shivling Peak. In the Gangotri range, a tourist can feast his eyes on both of them. Numerous trekkers who have been a part of the Kedartal trek define as among the most scenic treks in the world, where every moment is a matter of wonder.  

    Kedartal lies at 15,500 feet and is among the most mesmerizing glacial lakes in the world. The melting snow from Bhrighupanth and Thalaysagar peaks feed this lake, whereas, peaks such as Mt.Meru, Bhagirathi, Manda, and Gangotri are all in the vicinity. The landscapes of the higher Himalayas are barren, but the lake renders life to the entire landscape.  

    This Kedartal trek is in the beautiful land of Uttarakhand. The difficulty level for the trek is moderate to difficult and one should spend some moments contemplating if one intends to go for this trek. Consulting one’s doctor before going ahead with the trek is a recommendable practice.  The trek lasts for 7 days and with your contingent, you'd trek for around 37 kilometers during this duration. Kedartal trek takes one to a maximum altitude of 15,500 feet. On the trek, you’d come across a rocky path right from day 1. While the path is steep and dusty, there may be some boulders on the way. On the very first day of the trek, one ascends at a path inclined at 60 degrees. But one gets to experience lush green meadows of seasonal wildflowers and mesmerizing streams of water along the way.
