Brief Description of Warwan Valley Trek

केदारकंठ ट्रेक सर्दियों के लिए सबसे अधिक पसंद किए जाने वाले ट्रेक में से एक है और उत्तराखंड में ट्रेकिंग के लिए सबसे अच्छी जगह है। यदि आप बर्फ का अनुभव करना चाहते हैं और शक्तिशाली हिमालय की सुंदरता का अनुभव करना चाहते हैं, तो यह ट्रेक केवल आपके लिए है। यह क्षेत्र ट्रेकर्स को गहरी सर्दियों में कस्बों के सबसे दूरस्थ अस्तित्व का सामना करने का एक विशेष अवसर देता है!

3800M की ऊंचाई पर भगवान शिव का आशीर्वाद महसूस करें। Kedarkantha के उत्तरकाशी की संकरी क्षेत्र जिले में है उत्तराखंड । यह क्षेत्र गोविंद वन्यजीव अभयारण्य के अंतर्गत आता है, और यदि आप भाग्यशाली हैं तो आपको हिमालय की वनस्पतियों और जीवों का सामना करने का मौका मिल सकता है। केदारकांठा ट्रेक पर्वतीय प्रेमियों के लिए एक खुशी की बात है, जिन्हें हर तरह के परिदृश्य की पड़ताल करने की जरूरत है। इस ट्रेक को शुरू करना शायद आपके लिए सबसे अच्छा विकल्प होगा क्योंकि यह आपको मोटी नीली-देवदार बैकवुड के माध्यम से ले जाएगा, जो बाद में बुग्यालों में प्रवेश करेगा जिसे अल्पाइन मीडोज के रूप में भी जाना जाता है जो दिसंबर से मार्च तक ताजा बर्फ की मोटी परत से ढके होते हैं। केदारकांठा के रास्ते पर शिविर स्थल हैं जैसे जूडा का तालाब, हरगाँव और केदारकांठा बेस कैंप जो दर्शनीय दृश्य प्रस्तुत करते हैं।

केदारकंठ ट्रेक करने के लिए सर्दियों का सबसे अच्छा समय क्यों है?

यह सर्वविदित है कि अद्भुत केदारकंठ ट्रेक दिसंबर के मध्य से शुरू होता है और मार्च-अंत तक आगे बढ़ता है। जैसे ही आप १०००० फीट तक की पगडंडी बनाते हैं, आपको अपने रास्ते पर बर्फ दिखाई देने लगेगी - बर्फ से ढके पहाड़ के शिखर और देवदार के पेड़ों की लकड़ी पूरी तरह से बर्फ से ढँक जाएगी। जैसे ही आप बुग्यालों या अल्पाइन मीडोज में पहुंचते हैं, आप सफेद बर्फ के दौरान खुद को देखेंगे जहां भी आप चारों ओर देखते हैं।

तमाम परेशानी के बावजूद यह मनोरम दृश्य निर्विवाद रूप से सार्थक है। चारों ओर से ऊंचे देवदार के पेड़ों से घिरे और ढके हुए हैं जो पूरी तरह से बर्फ से ढंके हुए हैं, आश्चर्यजनक चोटियाँ और बुग्याल इसे भारत में सर्दियों के बाद के लिए सबसे अधिक देखा जाने वाला ट्रेक बनाते हैं।

इस तरह, सबसे अच्छी सर्दियों की यात्रा पर जाने के लिए, आपको दिसंबर में मार्च-अंत तक हमारे साथ शामिल होना चाहिए। किसी भी व्यक्ति को जो मिर्च जलवायु से प्यार करता है, केदारकांठा ट्रेक दौड़ जीतता है, क्योंकि आप ट्रेकिंग ट्रेल के साथ बर्फ के दृश्य का आनंद ले सकते हैं।
