DEHRADUN TO SANKRI
It is a spectacular 210km drive
that takes you through the most beautiful forests of Dehradun. Sankri village is located at an elevation of approximately 2,000m. The trek takes you through the Govind Pshu Vihar National park and is possible in any season. The trek takes you through lush
grasslands in summer. In winter, it gives you stunning views of snow-covered forests and high Himalayan peaks. There are many
trekking routes to Kedarkantha.
You can leave the trek from Sankri or Kotgaon, or Gaichawan Gaon.
By road: This 10-hour drive takes
you through dense forests, which become engulfed by snow in winter.
SANKRI TO JUDA LAKE
Juda Lake (also known as Juda
ka Talab) is a high-altitude lake between Sankri and Kedarkantha.
This pristine lake is surrounded densely by forests, making it an ideal camping spot for trekkers on this route. Legend has it that Lord Shiva untwisted the locks to create the tiny lake. The road climbs steeply after crossing Sankri village. Along the route,
you might see locals doing their daily chores. Winter is when the lake freezes and the surrounding area is covered in snow. Beautiful photos can be taken by stopping at streams that run through green fields during summer.
JUDA LAKE TO KEDARKANTHA BASE
You will leave Juda ka Talab the
following day to trek to the Kedarkantha Base Camp, approximately 4 km away. It will take approximately 3 hours to get to your destination if you walk at a moderate pace. It passes through pine and oak forests along steep ridges. In summer, the route will
be dotted with shepherds' huts, but it becomes a magical white land in winter.

PEAK AND BACK TO THE HARGAON CLAMP

from the Kedarkantha base camp to reach the Kedarkantha peak at 3,800m.
This section is not easy, but once you reach
the summit, it will be worth it. The 360-degree view of the surrounding peaks (Kala Nag, Bandarpoonch and Swargarohini) is amazing.After
a rest, you can take photographs and then descend to the Hargaon camp (Horegaon), at 2,700m. You will reach this camp by evening. Here you will be staying.
HARGAON TO SANKRI VIA JUDA LAKE
The 6-km trek takes approximately
four hours. Through dense pine forests, you will quickly descend approximately 800m. Winter will bring you through deep and soft snow. You can easily slide or run down the snow because of its steepness. Local hotels are available for overnight stays.
