Winter wonderland alert! For all the trekking enthusiasts out there, the wait is finally over! 

Kedarkantha, one of the most sought-after trekking destinations in India, has finally received its second snowfall of the season. This means that the trails are now covered in a blanket of snow, making it the perfect time to trek!

The clouds began to gather yesterday evening, and by 10 pm, the snowfall had begun. The peak amount of snowfall occurred between 1 am and 4 am, transforming the campsite of Julota where our team was camping.

The snowfall transforms the Kedarkantha campsite into a winter wonderland!

In the morning, the campsite was covered in a blanket of snow, with Julota campsite receiving a whopping 2 and a half feet of snow. While the Gaichwan basecamp at low altitude avoided the snowfall, Kotgaon basecamp is now fully covered with snow, a true Narnia feeling!

The climate right now is still cloudy, and another wave of snowfall may be on the horizon.
Whether you're a seasoned trekker or a beginner, Kedarkantha is a must-visit destination for an unforgettable winter adventure in the month of February.
