Brief Description

Grade:Moderate
Location: Uttarakhand
Altitude:4800 m
Duration:7 Days
Kedar Tal, also known as Shiva's lake, is a glacial lake situated at an altitude of 4,750 meters (15,600 feet) in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas in India. The lake is fed by the snowfall over Mt Thalay Sagar (6,904m), Meru (6,672m), Mt Bhrigupanth (6,772m) and other surrounding peaks, which are also the source of Kedar Ganga, which in Hindu mythology is considered to be Lord Shiva's contribution to Bhagirathi (a source-stream of the Ganges). The proximity with magnificent peaks and the view this trek offers will make you believe in magic. The lake itself is crystal-clear blue, the coolest drink of water you'll ever find and a true gem of Uttarakhand. Adding to the allure of this trek is the trailhead of Gangotri, where the trail begins, and also the holy town said to be the origin of the Ganges River. The place bursts to life during yatra season, with markets, temples, nightly aartis and forests full of sadhus. Save a few days to explore here after your trek. The best time to do the Kedartal trek are the months of May, June, September and, October.

Detailed Itinerary


Day 1

Arrive in Gangotri
Trek to Kedartal starts from Gangotri, Uttarakhand. Arrive in Gangotri by 3 PM for debrief and a round of introductions with your team members. If you arrive early, savour all that Gangotri has to offer by visiting the Holy temple, by walking through the pine forests, browsing the local market, striking a conversation with a Sadhu, exploring the secret cave, and enjoying a delicious dinner. Overnight stay at the local guest house.

Day 2

Acclimatisation at Gangotri
This day is reserved for rest and acclimatisation in Gangotri.

Day 3

Gangotri (9,576 feet) to Bhoj Kharak (12,893 feet) - 8 Kms trekking
This trail is ready to go places, are you?! With the Kedar Ganga faithfully following you on your left, you do some serious ascending for the day. As you climb, the fresh pines recede and are replaced with a thick grove of birch trees. This opens into Bhoj Kharak, our first campsite. The birch trees provide much welcomed shade and the purple rhododendrons wave in distance. The stunningly jagged façade of Thalaysagar allure you from a distance beckoning on what Day 3 has in store for you. The final task for the day is the Spider Wall, a 60-degree slab of rock with just enough footing for you to reach the other end. Overnight stay in camps at Bhoj Kharak.

Day 4

Bhoj Kharak (12,893 feet) to Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) - 7 Kms trekking
Today is an adventure. As you continue to ascend steadily, a landslide several years back has erased a 100 meter portion of the original trail and it is up to us to find a new way to traverse the mountainside. After this you come across a stable trail which guides you down to the Kedar Gunga river bed, which you have to partially cross before heading back to a solid ground on the other side which now opens to your next campsite, Kedar Kharak. A truly spectacular campsite situated among the towering peaks of Drigubanth, Thalaysagar and Jogin 3. Kedar Kharak is frequently visited by herds of blue sheep.

Day 5

Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) to Kedar Tal (15,748 feet) to Kedar Kharak - 8 Kms trekking
The final step to the beautiful Kedar Tal is through three ridges, primarily composed of deposited boulders and an occasional dirt trail running at the top of each. Cairns of rock towers dot the surface, reminding you where the trail is headed. Summiting the two ridges gives you a sneak-peek at that final ridge, forcing you to wonder what sights lay beyond it. After climbing the third ridge, Kedar Tal lake sits like a frozen emerald below. The gigantic views of Thalaysagar and other peaks make all your problems seem insignificant. The Kedar glacier flows motionlessly on your left, the origin of the river you have now become so accustomed to flowing by your side. Biding farewell to the divine Kedar Tal, we descend and head back to Kedar Kharak. Overnight stay in camps.

Day 6

Kedar Kharak (14,468 feet) to Gangotri (9,576 feet) - 15 Kms trekking
The hard part done, we are homeward bound! While the distance to cover is a little long, the trail to Gangotri is almost entirely downhill. Your reward is a soft, warm bed back down in Gangotri and a chance to catch the famous aarti. Head back home on the next morning.

Day 7

Gangotri - Uttarkashi - Dehradun (243 kms)
Check out after breakfast. If you have booked the transport with us, then the vehicle will pick you up from Gangotri and drop in Dehradun by evening.

Kedar Tal Trek is located in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand.

The Kedar Tal trek provides stunning panoramic views of the Himalayan mountain range, featuring Thalay Sagar, Bhrigupanth, Jogin, and Gangotri peaks. As part of this trek, travellers will also have the opportunity to visit the Kedar Tal lake, located at an elevation of 4,800M, and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The lake holds religious significance for the local community. Additionally, the route passes through Govind National Park, which is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including Himalayan black bears, musk deer, and snow leopards. Trekkers can also observe a variety of flora, such as rhododendron, oak, and pine forests, alpine meadows, and Himalayan blue poppies, which thrive in high-altitude environments. The trek's terrain presents a challenge, with steep inclines, declines, as well as river crossings, but it is an immensely rewarding experience.

The Kedartal Trek presents several challenges that trekkers need to overcome to complete the trail successfully. Some of the challenges involve steep ascents, descents, and crossing streams and boulders. Trekkers also need to be prepared for sudden weather changes as the region experiences heavy rainfall and snowfall. Trekkers need to be physically fit and mentally prepared for a strenuous climb.

The best time to do the Kedartal trek are the months of May, June, September and October.

On the trek, we have twin-sharing tents. In case you want an individual tent, you can add that to your booking request for an additional cost.

The Kedartal trek can be technically challenging in some sections, particularly in the upper reaches of the trail. The trail involves steep ascents, descents, and crossing streams and boulders, which can be physically demanding and require good physical fitness. Trekkers should also be prepared for the weather conditions, which can be unpredictable in the Himalayas. During the monsoon season, the trail can be slippery and muddy, while in winter, it can be icy and snowy, making it more challenging.

Dehradun has a reasonable size market. However you will have no time in hand for shopping as you have to head to Gangotri.

Gangotri has a small market. It would be difficult to find anything major there. Minor toiletries are available.

It is advisable not to leave anything for last minute buying.



Although not recommended, you can off load your bag at an additional cost. Add a request while making your booking for the trek and it can be arranged.

(Note: We don’t recommend offloading because the extra resources on a trail - ponies or porters depending on the trail - means extra load on the environment which can easily be avoided. It also goes against the spirit of trekking by eliminating a level of endurance and discomfort from the experience which are factors at the very heart of an outdoor adventure activity.)

You can leave your extra luggage at the hotel in Gangotri since we will be returning to the same hotel after completing the trek.

On all trek days, we provide 3 full meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) in addition to evening snacks and tea. The meals are vegetarian and the menu is pre-decided for all days of the trek. We do provide eggs as well on certain days. If you have any specific food-related allergies or restrictions, you can let our local staff (during the trek) know, and your requests will get accommodated. We try to provide a variety of food across meals so as to avoid repetition as well as cover all nutritional needs.

On campsites, our team will dig dry pits and assemble a toilet tent to provide for safe and secure quarters. A shovel will be provided within the toilet tent as well. Using water in the toilet tent is restricted; you will need to carry your own toilet paper. On the more difficult expeditions, toilet tents are not carried to the higher camps (above base camp) due to restriction of space (to pitch the tent).

In case you get your period on the trail and don’t have sanitary napkins, our trek leaders can provide them to you. If you need any other kind of assistance, you can let our trek leaders know. Irrespective of gender, our leaders are gender sensitised and equipped to assist you in any way you need them to.

You can buy it on your own. Alternatively, if you want us to buy it on your behalf, you can speak to our post-booking team and they will arrange it for you. They will send you a payment link once the insurance has been purchased.

Yes, there are multiple permits required for this. We obtain the permits on every trekkers’ behalf. All the permit costs are included in your trek cost.

A Basic Mountaineering Course certification from one of the five recognized mountaineering institutes in India is a minimum requirement to join our team. Our field experts are also trained in basic medicine and first-aid response. We also conduct on-ground training for our staff once a year as a refresher for old skills and to learn some new ones. During this training that we call APW (Adventure Professional Workshop), our leaders learn close to 25 topics and techniques of rescue which are not covered in the BMC and AMC courses. For practical training, we simulate on-ground situations to prepare them for quick thinking and quick response during emergencies.

We follow a rigorous regime of hiring and training our experts on the field. Each trek leader is a certified mountaineer with years of experience in the field. The interview process to bring a trek leader on-board is close to 6 months long where we assess various skills as well as personality traits of an individual. They also go through an on-field assignment as part of the hiring process. Trek leaders also progress in time from leading easier treks before advancing to the more difficult ones where the stakes are higher. For detailed information on our selection process, please visit Forerunners - The Making Of A Trek Leader

It absolutely is. We recognize, value and embody the ideology that the world of outdoor adventure can benefit from diversity. We make it our mission to create outdoor spaces as equally accessible and safe for all genders as possible. We also encourage women leaders in the outdoors and all of our staff (irrespective of gender) is gender sensitised. As for accommodation, in case there are no other women on the trek, a solo female trekker is provided with a separate single-occupancy tent.

Our batch sizes for Kedartal Trek are capped at 15 with the trek leader to trekker ratio of 1:8.

In addition to their qualification, our trek leaders are trained to tackle any and all kinds of sudden conditions that may present themselves on ground. During our recce stage, we study the trail in great detail and map out rescue routes before opening it up for our trekkers. We also have local support staff stationed in each area to arrange for emergency services at the place of need as quickly as possible.

We mobilise road rescue efforts where our trek leaders bring the person to be rescued down to the trailhead of the trek from where a car can take them to the nearest healthcare facility. The cost of rescue is not covered in the trek fee that we charge. It must be borne by the participant. However, if you opt for the insurance, the cost of rescue operations can be claimed from the Insurance company on production of valid proof e.g. doctor’s prescription & hospital bills etc. Please note that Bikat Adventures is only a facilitator & not a party in the Insurance policy. You need to raise the claim request directly with the Insurance company. Bikat Adventures is not responsible for any rejection of claim. You can call the insurance provider directly for any clarifications related to the Insurance policy. Although not mandatory, we recommend buying the insurance. You don’t necessarily have to get the insurance we provide, you can pick an Insurance company of your choice and get a policy directly from them. If you need more information on the terms and conditions of the insurance policy, get in touch with our customer support team.

All the gear used on our treks and expeditions is tried and tested, maintained for good quality and is overall top notch in quality and condition. We are continually looking to obtain the best of everything there is in the market so as to ensure optimum safety.

That will depend on the nature of your medical condition. Do give us a call, and one of our people will help you understand what is best for you. If not this, we are sure there would be plenty of other options you can choose from our vast portfolio to pick as your next adventure.


We have rolling camps on all our trails. To know why we are strictly against the concept of Fixed Camping, read Reasons to Ban Fixed Camping in Himalayas

This is a complex question and has a compound answer. The simple response is that because it is bad for the environment which we dearly love but if you are interested in a more detailed response to this question, please read Reasons to Ban Fixed Camping in Himalayas

There are a number of measures that we take to prevent overcrowding on some of the most popular trails. Some of them are capping our group size at 15, capping the number of trekkers on a trail to 250 per season, constantly looking for newer trails and routes to spread the crowd around and providing incentives to our trekkers to try unexplored territories with us. We put in place the system of dynamic pricing, which is the first of its kind in the trekking industry, which incentivises trekkers to choose less crowded trails by offering higher discounts. We have noticed, since we started this system, that this has helped in a big way to spread out the crowds between trekking routes. We are also going international so as to relieve some of the stress on the Himalayan landscape as well as explore newer ranges and design newer experiences for our community. If you want a more detailed description of all our measures in this regard, please read Simple solutions to overcrowding on Himalayan Treks

Some basic things to remember are: do not use water, do not dispose of anything non-biodegradable inside the pits, carry your own roll of toilet paper and remember to cover up after yourself to leave a clean toilet for your fellow trekkers. Everything else is much the same like using an Indian style home toilet!

Most wet wipes are not biodegradable which means it could take 100 years or more for them to decompose – not the best thing if you are trying to ‘Leave No Trace’, right?

This is quite a tricky situation but not a hopeless one. Since most of our sanitary waste is not biodegradable, we recommend that you pack your pads/tampons neatly, store it in a zip-lock bag and bring it back down with you where there are better options to dispose of them. In case you do not have zip-lock bags, ask our trek leaders for them and they should be able to provide them to you.

Each trekker is responsible for the use and hygiene of their own eating utensils. And as a measure to maintain proper hygiene, we do not provide plates and spoons. Also, dipping your hands in cold water to wash your own utensils adds something to the overall joy of high-altitude living, wouldn’t you think?


On making the payment, you will receive a booking confirmation along with the packing list and a copy of the undertaking form via email. You will subsequently receive emails detailing documents required, how to prepare physically and mentally for the trek, information on pick-up location on the first day etc. Please add info@bikatadventures.com in your trusted emails list to make sure our emails don't go to your spam folder.

A Whatsapp group will be formed a few weeks before departure. Members from our team are on those groups as well. Feel free to seek any clarifications you require in regards to the trek, on the group itself. Updates related to transportation/pickup point/pickup timing, accommodation etc. will be shared on the Whatsapp group as well.

Yes, we create a Whatsapp group a few weeks before the departure date so that the flow of information remains smooth and transparent.

Yes, it is one of the mandatory documents you will need to submit before the trek starts. The soft copy is to be sent to us & the original should be on your person while on the trek.

Yes, we will provide you an undertaking form through email which will need to be filled up by you and submitted to us post booking.

Why Bikat?

Small Group Size


Our batch sizes are capped at 15 for smaller treks with the trek leader and trekker ratio of 1:8. This ratio, in our years of experience, has proven to deliver the best trekking experience for individuals as well as groups. Capping the size of the group ensures individual attention to each trekker so that no signs of distress or need during the trek go unnoticed. It also helps to form a more cohesive cohort with better group energy which helps define the rhythm and pace of days on the trek.

As you go higher up on the BRS scale, since the stakes are higher, expeditions have an even smaller group size with the ratio of expedition leader to climber set at 1:2.


Qualified Trek Leaders


We follow a rigorous regime of hiring and training our experts in the field. Each trek leader is a certified mountaineer with years of experience in the field. In addition to their qualification, they also go through practical and situational training to tackle any and all kinds of sudden conditions that may present themselves on the ground. Being unpredictable is the core nature of the mountains but being ready for any circumstance as best as possible is a controllable asset that we try to nurture.

Our field experts are also trained in basic medicine and first-aid response.
