Hello Adventure Lovers!!!

Kedarkantha is one of the finest summits climbs for beginners
The experience of a summit climb is special because it stays with you for a long time. Waking up at wee hours in the morning, dawn breaking as you climb up the mountain flank. For a long time, this flank and trail is the only thing you can see ahead of you. And then, coming up to the ridge where your world widens. And then, finally, the summit where everything else is below you.

Here's a golden opportunity for you to tick off a fantastic Himalayan winter trek!
