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 3850m and reaching the top is very satisfying as you are rewarded with views of peaks like the swargarohini, banderpooch, black and Ranglana.

Day 1: DEHRADUN – MORI RIVER CAMPSITE(210kms) – 8 hrs drive
We start early from Dehradoon and reach Mori River Campsite by evening. We spent the night in tents in Mori. The final 22kms are through the Govind national park and is a very beautiful but bumpy ride.

Day 2: MORI RIVER CAMPSITE – SANKRI – TREK TO JUDA TALAB (2850m) – 10kms
Post breakfast we start our drive until Sankri and trek towards Juda talab. The path goes through Saud village and is a gentle climb. A lot of local village women will be seen on the way carrying wood and dried leaves for their cattle. The campsite is located near the Juda Lake and is a much-closed camping site surrounded by tall trees and mountain slopes; without any wind or views. We reach by afternoon and stay in camps.

Day 3: JUDA TALAB – KEDAR KANTH MEADOW – 6kms
We start post breakfast and trek through the pine and oak trees to reach the open field below the summit. This camping site has excellent views and is the highlight of the trek. There are green pastures nearby and the views towards Himachal are unending. We camp here for the night.
