Overview Of Kedarkantha Trek

Uttarakhand as is known for its Garhwal Range is itself a very beautiful state. It is very peaceful and gives a break from the poisonous air clogging the cities. Uttarakhand is an adobe for many treks, one of which is Kedarkantha Trek. This trek is an easy and nice treat for the people who do not have experience in trekking and are eager to have their first Trekking experience.
Kedarkantha Trekking is a life-changing experience and gives a 360-degree view of Kala Nag, Swargarohini, Banderpoonch, Black peak. This provides a very rare view and only there are few locations in Himalaya which get such a view all these peaks at the same time.
