Tour Detail

Kedarkantha Trek: Feel the Bliss of Lord Shiva
At a towering elevation of 3800 meters, Kedarkantha is a majestic peak located in Govind Wildlife Sanctuary of Uttarkashi district in Uttarakhand. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Kedarkantha is one of the most popular treks in Uttarakhand due to its relative ease of access and gradual inclination. 
Experienced trekkers would recommend trek to Kedarkantha to anyone who is relatively new to the uncertainty of the wilderness but still want to explore. It is also one of the few treks that are open to visitors all year round. For trekkers who love snow, Kedarkantha trek in winters is a viable option.

Mythology of Kedarkantha
Any article on famous tourist destination in Uttarakhand is incomplete without the mention of its mythological connotations associated with the place. Tourist attractions in Devbhumi Uttarakhand are smeared in mythological connotations and Kedarkantha is no different.
Kedarkantha – Lord Shiva’s retreat
Kedarkantha  is also known as Bal-Kedar  and according to a local legend; it was supposed to be the site of Kedarnath. It is said that when Shiva was wandering at Kedarkantha in his bull avatar, to hide from the Pandavas, the local dwellers disturbed his peace. Therefore, he fled to the present Kedarnath site. The villagers of Sankri believe that the trident of Lord Shiva, erected at Kedarkantha protects them and keeps the Himalayan Rivers replenished.
