Traveller Requirements

  • While the difficulty of Kedarkantha trek is categorised as beginner, it does require basic fitness. If you are planning to do any Himalayan trek (and not just Kedarkantha), ensure you have the fitness enough to cover a distance of 5 km in 40-45 minutes on flat land.
  • Actute Mountain Sickness: Read about high altitude sickness, or acute mountain sickness, and be aware of the symptoms.
  • While it is very rare to experience high altitude sickness during this trek, it cannot be ruled out totally. Every body reacts differently at high altitudes due to less oxygen levels, and it is difficult to guess how your body will react. If you experience any of these symptoms, do not take it lightly, and inform the trek lead immediately.
