Kedarkantha Trek

Rachna
This was totally a different kind of experience. We enjoyed continuous snowfall. Sleeping in tents and sleeping bags was difficult but at the same time enjoyable experience. It used to be freezing cold and we had to wear layers of cloths to protect ourselves. There were no luxuries facility and we were living with the nature. No electricity, no mobile phone, no gadgets – just peace within ourselves. With every coming day, the temperature dropped. Temperature at night went down till -10 degree C also and at the summit, we experienced around -17 degree C. The highlight of the trek were 2 himalayan dogs who completed the entire trek with us and were accompanying us always. they were like our guides. We were given a bottle of hot water every morning but within minutes it use to turn into ice cold. The day we did the summit, we trekked for more than 12 hours. You need to trek with your heart and not with your legs. Reaching the summit gives you a total different feel. Everyone gets their spiritual moment and we feel more connected with ourselves.Things to carryAs this is a winter trek, it is important that you have all the required gears with yourself. following are some of the mandatory things to carry:Winter jackets, thermal inner, woolen socks, poncho, waterproof and high ankle trekking shoes, back pack with rain cover, walking stick, head torch, water bottle, medical kit, sun and woolen cap, hand gloves, trek pants, full sleeves t-shirts, sun glasses, slippers, toilet paper and wipes, moisturizer.
