And the total distance covered is 20 KM. The trekking trial is moderate and even first time trekkers can achieve the summit with little effort. The dense forest and the snow covered ground makes the trial more interesting and popular. The kedarkantha trek is an ideal destination for both trekkers and nature lovers.

Kedarkantha is situated in western Garhwal in uttarkashi district. It's also known as a easy trek in uttarakhand region and even beginners can easily do this trek. For this trek physical fitness is required. As the altitude increases the air becomes thin and in this situation carrying backpacks can be little difficult. So for this maintain proper physical fitness.
