Trekking - Kedar Kantha Trek
Kedar Kantha Trek
One of the not oft visited locales, close to the Har ki dun valley, is Kedar Kantha. Kedar Kantha lies in the state of Uttarakhand, bordering Himachal Pradesh. The outdoor vistas are beyond description in beauty. There are quaint hamlets, unending and lush green meadows and fabulous views of some of Himalayan giants. The people are extremely friendly and the culture and practice of the locals very unique.
The snaking trail on this trip takes one through rich and verdant forests of chestnut, maple and pines. The sun kissed snow path with the trees shadow boxing with each other is a sight to behold. The trail that is tough in places also offers potential of catching fleeting glimpses of the elusive Himalayan wildlife. The Pinnacle of this trip though remains the perfect sunset that one can almost reach out to. The sun, almost in slow motion leaves a blazing trail through the sky before descending into oblivion behind the impressive snow capped peaks.
