Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Gangotri

Trek to Kedartal starts from Gangotri, Uttarakhand. Arrive in Gangotri by 3 PM for debrief and a round of introductions with your team members. If you arrive early, savour all that Gangotri has to offer by visiting the Holy temple, by walking through the pine forests, browsing the local market, striking a conversation with a Sadhu, exploring the secret cave, and enjoying a delicious dinner. Overnight stay at the local guest house.


Day 2 - Acclimatization at Gangotri

This day is reserved for rest and acclimatization in Gangotri.


Day 3 - Gangotri (9,576 feet) to Bhoj Kharak (12,893 feet) - 8 Kms trekking

This trail is ready to go places, are you?! With the Kedar Ganga faithfully following you on your left, you do some serious ascending for the day. As you climb, the fresh pines recede and are replaced with a thick grove of birch trees. This opens into Bhoj Kharak, our first campsite. The birch trees provide much welcomed shade and the purple rhododendrons wave in distance. The stunningly jagged fa├žade of Thalaysagar allure you from a distance beckoning on what Day 3 has in store for you. The final task for the day is the Spider Wall, a 60-degree slab of rock with just enough footing for you to reach the other end. Overnight stay in camps at Bhoj Kharak.


Day 4 - Bhoj Kharak (12,893 feet) to Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) - 7 Kms trekking

Today is an adventure. As you continue to ascend steadily, a landslide several years back has erased a 100 meter portion of the original trail and it is up to us to find a new way to traverse the mountainside. After this you come across a stable trail which guides you down to the Kedar Gunga river bed, which you have to partially cross before heading back to a solid ground on the other side which now opens to your next campsite, Kedar Kharak. A truly spectacular campsite situated among the towering peaks of Drigubanth, Thalaysagar and Jogin 3. Kedar Kharak is frequently visited by herds of blue sheep.


Day 5 - Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) to Kedar Tal (15,748 feet) to Kedar Kharak - 8 Kms trekking

The final step to the beautiful Kedar Tal is through three ridges, primarily composed of deposited boulders and an occasional dirt trail running at the top of each. Cairns of rock towers dot the surface, reminding you where the trail is headed. Summiting the two ridges gives you a sneak-peek at that final ridge, forcing you to wonder what sights lay beyond it. After climbing the third ridge, Kedar Tal lake sits like a frozen emerald below. The gigantic views of Thalaysagar and other peaks make all your problems seem insignificant. The Kedar glacier flows motionlessly on your left, the origin of the river you have now become so accustomed to flowing by your side. Bidding farewell to the divine Kedar Tal, we descend and head back to Kedar Kharak. Overnight stay in camps.


Day 6 - Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) to Gangotri (9,576 feet) - 15 Kms trekking

The hard part done, we are homeward bound! While the distance to cover is a little long, the trail to Gangotri is almost entirely downhill. Your reward is a soft, warm bed back down in Gangotri and a chance to catch the famous aarti. Head back home on the next morning.
