Overview & Highlights

Kedarkantha roughly translates to the "Throat of Lord Shiva". It is a mountain 20 kms from Sankri village, standing tall at a height of 12,500 feet. According to a legend, the Pandavas went to Lord Shiva to ask for his blessings after the Kurushetra war. Lord Shiva refused to meet them and guised himself as a buffalo instead. Bheem noticed something strange among the herd of buffalos and refused to let the disguised buffalo pass. This led to a fight between the two. Bheem is said to have ripped the buffalo apart and the Pandavas are said to have built temples wherever parts of his body fell.
Kedarkantha was apparently where his throat fell. The Kedarkantha trek covers a total distance of 26 kilometres, and takes a period of five nights and six days to cover, making it a beautiful and adventurous way of spending a week away from the hubbub of city life.
Camping on the way to Kedarkantha peak is dreamlike in the lap of the snowy landscape, and a thrilling experience on its own. However, one can embark on many other activities like skiing at Kedarkantha, a relatively new feature of the area, stargazing and landscape photography.

It was my first experience with wanderon as i never travelled before with any travel community. We went for chopta n tungnath trek , it was such a beautiful place. Since i was doing trekking for the first time i was bit nervous but people here made it so easy. Specially our trip leads Gaurav and ebin was so supportive and made our trip extremely enjoyable. I will again travel with wanderon nd i recommend this to all people , specially to female solo travellers.

WanderOn is not a group but it’s a feeling as the name suggests. I didn’t know that I will be so touched and moved when I will reach the top of Chandrashila peak. It was my birthday and I wanted to go somewhere in the mountains to celebrate the same. Me and 2 friends of mine were looking for options and we decide to go for Chopta. Then we were thinking with whom we should go. We were considering 2-3 travel groups but thankfully, we chose WanderOn. We had so much fun traveling with WanderOn. We met amazing people who all were well behaving and fun loving, we made some new friends with whom we are not just in touch but talking and sharing things on daily basis. Group leaders were so welcoming and friendly that we never felt we are with new people. Nidhi, our leader who is just 20 years old, we call her ‘Chota Baccha’, is not at all a small kid. She was on fire and coordinating and managing stuff like a superwoman. Dushyant is a very mature yet very friendly person with whom I had a good time. Rishabh is a fun guy and Ankush’s photography skills are beyond imaginations. Well managed Safari Tents, amazing quality food, breathtaking location, wonderful people, everything went in harmony which made this trip even more enjoyable. Overall, I had a great time and happy that we chose WanderOn.
