Trail Overview

Kedarkantha peak, situated in the mountains of the Tons river valley is a beautiful ridge peak, easily accessible anytime of the year. In the winters, it snows in this valley and hence views from the summit are very rewarding. The trek goes through the Govind national park and gives you ample time to soak in the flora and fauna of this protected area. The summit lies at an altitude of 3850 m and reaching the top is very satisfying as you are rewarded with views of peaks like the Swargarohini, Banderpooch, Black peak and Ranglana.
