Nestled beautifully in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, Kedarkantha Trek happens to be one of the most astonishing winter hiking locations. Tucked at an altitude of 12,500 feet, Kedarkantha trek is pretty special as it doesn’t only offer you a platform to quench your thirst of trekking but also lets you witness the awe-inspiring views of the panoramic landscapes, lush green valleys, and the entire mountain cape.
At present, Kedarkantha is the topmost trek of Uttarakhand Himalayas and is an incredible place to enjoy the soul soothing beauty of sunrise and sunset. While ascending towards the highest point of this peak, you get to explore several adorable sites such as Sour Village, Sankri, Govind Wildlife Sanctuary, and many more. On you stay in Sour Village you get to witness several conventions, rituals, traditions, fairs and festivals.
Apart from enjoying trekking experience, a traveler also attains spiritual vibes on this journey as Kedarkantha is a place of faith for us where one can worship Lord Shiva and his son, Lord Ganesha. There is an annual celebration organized in Kedarkantha in which people from nearby villages participate in this fair on every 15th of June.
