Day 1

Kedarkantha Trek with Renok Adventures

I reached Dehradun by Nanda Devi express way before the scheduled time of 8 AM so I had enough time to relax a bit and freshen up. I took a room at Jain Dharamshala near Prince Chowk. I met the entire team at Dehradun Railway station opposite reservation office. We started our journey from Dehradun to Sankri at around 8.30 am via Mussoorie. The drive from Dehradun to Sankri was a picturesque one along side the rivers and through pine forest. We reached Sankri and checked in our camps.

Day 2

We started our trek to Juda Ka talab around 8 post breakfast. Trek from Sankri to Juda ka Talab is a steep but we enjoyed as the bonding between all trekkers was great being a small group it was expected.

Day 3

We started our trek to Kedarkantha base at around 9 am as it was easy day Renok Adventures trek leaders gave us plenty time to enjoy in the snow. It was around 3 to 4 hours trek from Juda ka Talab to Kedarkantha basecamp but we took the liberty and had too many snow breaks. Renok's campsite at Kedarkantha is overlooking the mountains and it was my best campsite ever.

Day 4

We started at around 4 am in the morning we got our crampons and gaiters which were provided by Renok Adventures. I was using them for the first time so our trek leaders helped to use them properly. After a quick breakfast we started for our summit push. The summit was in sight for long time but it was daunting climb we reached at the summit at around 9 am and entire group make it to the summit that was big thing as in adventure it is always a team game.
