Why Kedar Tal Is A Must-Do Trek?

If watching the mountains directly wasn’t a thrill, capturing them in the reflections of a lake is a thrill. Kedartal is an emerald lake that manifests the flawless reflection of the Thalaysagar peak. After Shivling Peak, Thalaysagar is considered the most beautiful peak. The surprising fact is both of them lie in the Gangotri Range. And after Gaumukh Tapovan this is another trek heading from Gangotri, therefore it does not lag in enticing views.

Lying at 15,500 feet,  Kedartal is one of the most astounding glacial lakes. It is fed by the melting snow of Thalaysagar and Brighupanth Peak. This lake is the best place to witness the magnificence of huge peaks from the closest. The mountain peaks like Manda, Bhagirathi, Gangotri, Bhrigupanth, Mt. Meru, and Thalaysagar encompass the skyline. In the barren lands of the higher Himalayas, the lake fits perfectly in the landscape. It is like a blooming lotus in the mud! Except the mud here is rising black-white mountains.

This trek is considered difficult due to the presence of a rocky path right from day 1. The path is steep, and filled with scree, dust, and boulders. The first day of trekking goes through a thin ledge on 60 degrees rock face. And the complexity keeps increasing until the final steep summit ridge. The trail also goes through vibrant blossoms and lush meadows with a few streams crossing over Kedar Ganga, the trail has it all.

If you are an experienced trekker and willing to go on an exceptional adventure then the Kedartal Trek is waiting for you!

About The Trek

Kedartal is a difficult grade trek and is ideal for those who have done a couple of Himalayan treks before. The lake sits amid high-rising mountains like Mt. Thalaysagar, Manda Parvat, Mt. Bhrigupanth, Mt. Jogin, and Mt. Gangotri. There are very few Himalayan treks that will bring you to such proximity to the mountains and this trek is also much less crowded as compared to other Himalayan treks and the solitude comes as a great blessing.

The transportation from Rishikesh to Gangotri is arranged by TTH and you will be driven to Gangotri on the first day of the journey, followed by an acclimatization day at Gangotri. The following day the trek will lead to Bhoj Kharak and then next to Kedar Kharak and on to Kedar Tal the next day. This is an extremely hard trekking route to Kedar Tal and you get surreal views of the Gangotri Ranges. Descending from Kedar Kharak to Gangotri, you will be driven back to Rishikesh in a Tata Sumo or similar vehicle.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

The trek starts at an altitude of 11,000 ft and takes you to an altitude of 16,000 ft and the altitude gain happens within a period of 3 to 4 days. The terrain can be quite tricky most of the time with steep ascents and descents and you need adequate mental and physical preparation before doing the trek. You need to prepare well for the trek if you want an enjoyable experience. There are a couple of spider walls on the trek that is near-vertical boulders and you have to climb them to progress ahead. Good physical fitness is a must for the trek.

There are diverse sceneries along the trek and it includes charming forest covers in Bhoj Kharak, followed by some beautiful high-altitude meadows the tranquility at the lake is simply indescribable.

It is a 50 km trek and the entire journey from Rishikesh and back takes 7 days including driving days and acclimatization days. The trek lies in the greater Himalayas and is thus big on mountain views. The trek can be done in two seasons, one is in summer between the months of mid-May to June and in autumn during the months of mid-September to the end of October. In summer you will find leftover snow from winter in some sections of the trail and in autumn there are no traces of snow. In summer the temperature is pleasant and lingers between 15 to 20 °C in the daytime, however, the nights can be pretty cold with the temperatures dropping close to 0°C. In autumn the temperatures go as high as 20°C in the daytime and at night range between 3-5°C

Kedratal region is also the natural habitat of the mountain goats – Bharal but you will rarely spot them on the trail. Keep an eye out and your fingers crossed, you may spot one feeding on the sides of the mountain.

This is not a trek that you can do by yourself and will need a guide with technical skills to complete the trek. All our trek leaders are mountaineering certified as well as Wilderness First Aid Responders and as such, they will assist you every step of the way, especially on technical sections like the spider wall and there is also a rockfall section from Bhoj Kharak to Kedar Kharak, where technical skills help. These sections require technical safety equipment as well as a skilled technical safety team. Trying to do this trek without technical assistance can be quite risky.

On the lower part of the trek, the weather is more or less stable and as you gain altitude, the weather becomes unpredictable, and at an altitude above 15,000 ft, snowfall can occur at any time of the trek. So carry the appropriate gear and clothing layers to be prepared at all times of the trek. In summer, snow on the Kedartal Trek is a big probability and sometimes the snowfall can obstruct the previously cut path and this means fresh paths have to be cut by us. The technical team with the trek leader will decide if we are to proceed on the trek or turn back.

The base camp for Kedartal is at Gangotri which is already at a high altitude of 10,000 ft and goes all the way to Kedartal at 15,484 ft. so the oxygen level is already low from the beginning of the trek and it only gets rarer as you trek to higher altitudes. Relatively colder temperatures and high oxygen levels can make you susceptible to AMS and you might develop your symptoms as early as Bhoj Kharak or even before that. Our trek leaders are all trained to detect the signs of AMS early on and will provide the necessary precautions. We also add additional acclimatization days to the itinerary to maintain the safety of our trekkers. If you feel any symptoms of AMS, report to the Trek Leader immediately.

Gangotri, the origin of the River Ganges, is steeped in mythology. The legend has it that King Bhagirath prayed to Lord Shiva for the salvation of the souls of all his 6000 sons and obliging to the request, Lord Shiva requested Goddess Ganga to flow down earth and purify the ashes of Bhagirath’s sons. This and many more mythologies elevate the status of the River Ganga to purify one’s soul.

Kedar Ganga will remain on your left and there are an abundance of Bhojpatra trees on today’s trail.  It is believed that in ancient times the leaves of Bhojpatra trees were used to write literature.

The path goes through barren land and dry sights around with only 2-3 stream crossing. The weather gets unpredictable here, therefore, being on schedule is the key. The trail is through scree, dust and boulders with no greenery around. Although the terrain is barren, it is quite thrill crossing this patch to the trek. Steep ascents and descents mark the trail and requires a great deal of energy to cross the trek. After a few hours of trekking on such path, the final steep ridge is reached. There are cairns placed to mark the trail. About a half a kilometer away from the lake, you can see the glorious Thalaysagar peak across the ridge. Once you climb the final ridge you will the stunning Kedartal. One last descend to the lake and you will be right next to the Kedartal. You can find a flawless reflection of Thalaysagar on the lake. From the lake, you should get the panorama of Mt. Manda, Brighupant, Gangotri, Thalaysagar, Bhagirathi and Mt. Meru.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason.

In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.


In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.
