Physical Preparation:

  1. Cardiovascular Training: Regular exercises such as running, jogging, swimming, and cycling can help improve your stamina and lung capacity.

  1. Healthy Eating: Maintain a balanced diet, which will help increase your stamina.
  2. Minimal Waste: Avoid taking food items that generate waste.

Remember, preparation is vital to having a successful and enjoyable trek.

Can I do the Kedarkantha Trek solo?

While it is technically possible to do the Kedarkantha Trek solo, it’s not generally recommended for a few reasons:

  1. Safety: Trekking in the Himalayas can present a variety of challenges, including unpredictable weather, difficult terrain, and the risk of altitude sickness. Having a group or a guide with you can help manage these risks.

  2. Logistics: Organizing transportation, food, and accommodation can be easier with a trekking group or company. Additionally, certain permits may be required for the trek, which is typically arranged by trekking companies.

  3. Emergencies: In case of emergencies, being alone can be dangerous. It’s safer to have others around who can provide assistance or seek help if necessary.

  4. Route Finding: Even though the trail is well-marked, there are chances of getting lost especially if it’s your first time. A guide can ensure you stay on the right path.

If you’re an experienced trekker and still wish to go solo, make sure you’re well prepared: carry a detailed map, a compass, and a first-aid kit; inform someone about your plans and expected return date; and carry enough food, water, and warm clothing.

However, joining a guided trek can offer a safer and potentially more enjoyable experience, as it allows you to focus on the trek itself without having to worry too much about logistics and safety precautions.

We were a group of 9 to trek to the Kashmir Great Lakes with Advenchar in the first week of August, 2023. Swena was kind enough to accommodate us at the last minute since our trek to Tarsar Marsar was cancelled at the last minute with another company. Being a small group, we were able to start early in the morning, cover the hard sections before the sun came up & reach the campsite well before the evening rains. We were guided by Neil from Advenchar through the trek who is as well versed with the mountains as one can possibly get. The local Kashmiri team fed us to our hearts content. Bajjis, gulab jamoons, soup, kawa, sooji ka halwa was what I relished the most during the evening snacks. Mountain stories from Neil, crystal clear weather during the trek, the camaraderie among the co-trekkers & the ever helpful team made the pretty pretty KGL trek all the more memorable. Only disappointment was the trash at Vishnusar & Ganagabal campsites. Wished we had camped further away at these 2 sites. But the remaining 4 campsites were clean & beautiful. I would definitely do my next trek with Advenchar! Thank you for such a wonderful & beautiful experience!

It is my first time trekking in India & I chose Advenchar for their positive reviews & small batch sizes. The team also patiently answered the many, many questions I had & were always available. True enough, I had a great & smooth experience with the KGL trek. The guides & helpers were experienced, knowledgeable & helpful. The trek timings were well planned; we often set off earlier & managed to avoid the rain. The food was delicious, varied & planned according to the trek. The tents were of high quality, withstanding the evening rain. Overall, I would recommend Advenchar, a huge thanks to them for everything. 🙂
