Kedarkantha situated in the Garhwal Himalayas, Uttrakhand.For nature admirers, it’s the best place to visit. The area is complemented with unsurpassed beauty, quaint hamlets, green meadows, snow paths and amazing sights of the rising Himalayan peaks. Close to Har Ki Dun this place is lesser visited. Uttarakhand is imbued with nature’s aura that offers a landscape dotted with serene rivers, groovy lakes and exceeding peaks. To catch an exclusive glance of flora & fauna in Himalayas one must pass through the snaking trail to the 3,850m tall summit goes through Govind National Park. With views of peaks like the Swargarohini, Banderpooch, Black, and Ranglana, the highlight of the trail is undoubtedly sunsets against the backdrop of impressive snow-capped mountains.

Trekking such long distances in high altitudes requires a lot of energy. Our cooks on the trek provide you with as nutritious food as possible. But it should be remembered that a lot of ingredients need to be carried on such high altitudes and it is only human to forget something. We request our members to keep an open mind and enjoy the best of what we can provide.

Let’s look at a few food habits you need to follow while trekking.

Consume carbohydrates at breakfast.

Breakfast is the first meal of the day before the beginning of the trek. Complex carbs break down and release energy slowly. This keeps providing you with a constant source of energy throughout the day.

Candy and chocolate bars are a big no when you are attempting Kedarkantha Summit.

They contain simple carbs and are easy to burn by the body. Though they provide you with a sudden boost of energy, they lead to fatigue faster. Simple carbs signal the body to not burn complex carbs, in turn leading to loss of energy. When simple sugars burn, we lose a lot of water in the body leading to dehydration and cramps.

Drink at least 4-5 litres of water daily. (mix ORS in water which will maintain the water level) Because it will be cold so such amount of water intake is hard so ORS will help to prevent dehydration .

Granola Bars for post-lunch fatigue.

Trail mixes and granola bars of nuts and whole grains can be used to tackle post lunch fatigue which usually happens 2-3 hours after lunch. They are a good source of carbohydrates and vitamins.

Electrolytes for dehydration.

Towards the end of the trek, the body becomes dehydrated and depleted of salts and ions through sweating. Electrolytes like ORS should be consumed mixed with water to recharge the body.

Carry multivitamin tablets for complications arising due to vitamin deficiency. (optional)

Consume hot liquids at night to keep your body warm. (We provide soup at bed time at times)

Avoid alcohol.

It is a common myth that alcohol keeps you warm in cold climate. Though there is some truth to it, it is not advisable during trekking. It makes you susceptible to hypothermia, makes your breathing shallow and accelerates altitude.

Avoid non-vegetarian food.

Non-vegetarian food should be avoided as proteins take a lot of time to digest in high altitudes and cause various gastrointestinal complications. Eggs can be consumed in small quantities.

We have rights to cancel the trek without any prior notice ,in that case no expenses will be given to client like transportation, any hotel stay and any further expense which relate to this trekking trip with Ridingsolo.

Bag offloading up to 10 kg comes with a fees. (need to pay in cash directly to the porter)

Our treks are conducted with keeping safety in mind. All the proper gears are provided, the guides are well experienced with the route and the Himalayan terrain.

Women safety is paramount. There have been no cases of eve-teasing on our treks. Generally gender ratio is 6:4 (M:F).

Drinking water is not readily available in hills and hence the trekkers are advised to use water wisely and fill their water bottle every time when crossing or walking nearby the river.

For any trek cancellation, we should be informed at least one week prior to the trek.

No cancellation charges if cancel before 15 days of trek start date (100% refund except 15% deduction of service charge)

In case the cancellation is not made before one week then you can keep your money safe by informing us and can go for same or another trek on some other date as well. (at least before 3 days, No refund if cancellation made in between 3 days of trek staring date)
