Within the last few years, Sankri has come to be known as a bustling hub for trekkers owing to the number of treks in the region. In the peak season of December and January, Sankri is as crowded as Manali Mall Road. We always recommend that you plan your Kedarkantha Trek in February and early March to avoid the large crowds.

We will stay overnight in a homestay/guest house. From here we have a striking view of a dramatic sunset in the valley. This is where your trek leader will brief you about all elements of the upcoming trek, and then a hearty dinner will be served. 

We will set off on our trek early the next morning after a filling and nutritious breakfast.
