Trekking in the Garhwal Himalayas is a great way to unwind and have some fun. Kedartal, an emerald-blue glacial lake at an altitude of about 15600 feet, is one of the most picturesque hiking destinations here.  The lake is fed by the snowfalls on Mt. Thalaysagar, Mt. Meru, and Mt. Bhrigupanth. The trek takes you through dense fir and birch forests, across the tree line, and then over trails laden with massive boulders.

Itinerary

Day 1Dehradun to Gangotri

Your journey begins in Dehradun and finishes in Gangotri, Uttarakhand, the starting point for the Kedartal trek. By 3 p.m., you should be in Gangotri for a debriefing and a round of team introductions. We’ll be spending the night at a local guest house/Camps. 

Day 2Rest Day at Gangotri

We will use this day for acclimatization. Visit the Holy Temple, take a walk through the pines, shop at the local market, start up a chat with a Sadhu, visit the underground cave, and eat a tasty meal. We’ll be spending the night at a local guest house/Camps. 

Day 3Gangotri to Bhoj Kharak

From Gangotri, the trek begins after a good breakfast. With the Kedar Ganga diligently following you on your left, you do some serious ascending for the day. As you climb, the new pines fade away, replaced by a thick grove of birch trees. This leads to Bhoj Kharak, our first campsite. In the distance, purple rhododendrons wave, and birch trees provide much-needed shade. From afar, Thalaysagar’s stunningly jagged façade entices you to discover what awaits you on Day4. The Spider Wall, a 60-degree slab of rock with just enough footing to get you to the other end, is the day’s final obstacle. You will spend the
night in a camp at Bhoj Kharak.

Day 4Bhoj Kharak to Kedarkharak

Today is a memorable day. You’ll notice that a landslide a few years ago wiped out a 100-meter portion of the original track, and it’s up to us to find a new way across the mountainside. After that, you’ll find a safe route leading down to the Kedar Gunga riverbed, which you must partly cross before returning to solid ground on the other side, which now leads to your next campsite, Kedar Kharak. Nestled between the Drigubanth, Thalaysagar, and Jogin 3 hills is a truly breathtaking campsite. Kedar Kharak is often visited by herds of blue sheep.

Day 5Kedarkharak to Kedartal/Thalay Sagar base camp

The final leg of the trip to the breathtaking Kedar Tal is a climb up three ridges made entirely of deposited boulders with the occasional gravel road running between them. The trail’s path is marked by cairns of rock towers that dot the landscape. You get a view of the final peak after summiting the two ridges, which makes you wonder what sights lie beyond it. After climbing the third mountain, Kedar Tal Lake appears as a frozen emerald below. The breathtaking views of Thalaysagar and other peaks make your troubles look insignificant. We set our camp at Thalay Sagar Base Camp

Day 6Base Camp to Kedarkharak

Today, we trace our steps back to Kedar Kharak. Overnight in tents at Kedar Kharak.

Day 7Kedarkharak to Gangotri

We’ve finished the challenging part and are on our way back home! Considering the distance travelled, the trail to Gangotri is almost completely downhill. When you return to Gangotri, you’ll be greeted with a cosy, warm bed and the opportunity to witness the famous aarti. Leave early the next morning for your house.

Day 8Gangotri to Dehradun

Check out after breakfast. The vehicle will pick you up from Gangotri and drop you off in Dehradun in the evening. This brings us to the end of an Amazing adventure and beginning of your love affair with the himalayas
