Kedarkantha Winter Trek:

Kedarkantha peak, situated in the mountains of the Tons river valley is a beautiful ridge peak; easily accessible anytime of the year. In the winter, it snows in this valley and hence views from the summit are very rewarding. The trek goes through the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park and gives you ample time to soak in the flora and fauna of this protected area. The summit lies at an altitude of 12,500 feet and reaching the top is very satisfying as you are rewarded with views of peaks like the Swargarohini, Banderpoonch and Black Peak.
