Trek Outline

The journey starts at goSTOPS Dehradun. A 10-hour drive amid some truly mesmerizing views takes you to Sankri Village. You start trekking through the lush meadows and dense forests the next day. It will be Day 4 when you reach and conquer the target - the Kedarkantha Peak. You’ll be back in Dehradun by the evening of Day 6 and can plan in advance the direction you want to head in from there.

So what all is going to be there to make you say, “Damn! I can’t wait for this trip”? To start with, a long and scenic drive on a national highway, sleeping under the stars in tents, waking up to beautiful views of sunrise and of course, the new friends you are going to meet. Make sure to have a lot of fun as this is going to be much more than just a getaway trip.

There’s absolutely nothing for you to worry about for these six days (and otherwise as well). The trip has been designed in a way so you get to rest well and take your time to let the surrounding beauty sink in at every stop. No rush whatsoever.
