KEDARNATH DOME PEAK EXPEDITION
Climbing the South Face of Kedarnath Peak offers a Unique and Distinct Kind of Experience. The breathtaking panoramas and picturesque scenery of the Himalaya will be etched indelibly into our recollections. We intended to walk and climb to each of the Himalaya's secret valleys in order to take in their breathtaking scenery. The summit of Kedarnath ranges in difficulty from moderate to severe to demanding. One can only get to Rishikesh by using a taxi or a bus. Rishikesh is located in the Himalayan foothills, close to the Himalayan mountain range's boundary with the lowlands. The trail to the summit of Kedarnath begins in Gauri Kund, which is located in the Chamoli district. Gauri kund and Kedarnath are around 14 kilometres apart from one another. The height of Kedarnath peak is 6940 metres, and the route to get there is a winding one that goes up the side of a mountain. Base camp is located at an elevation of about 4000 metres. The percentage of the year that is considered to be peak varies according on the month, such as May, June, or July, among other months. From the base camp on the ridge side, you can view the ridge line that is around 6000 metres in height. continuing on from Bharte Khunta to Kedarnath Peak. On the left side, there was a range of mountains that reached around 5000 metres in height.
The terminus of the glacier turned into a col, and on the right side of the valley, a rock ridge climbed up to Bharte Khunta. As compared to the climbing that may be done on the south face of Kedarnath Peak, the ridge that leads to Bharte Khunta offers a unique experience for climbers. The bottom of the hanging glacier, as well as the beginning of the south face of the mountain. It would be appropriate to establish base camp there; but, if the expedition had begun earlier, it could have been challenging to make effective use of the porters from Gauri Kund since they were not as used to working with expedition teams. It took around forty-five minutes to cross the icy serac that was on the boundary between the plateau and the hanging glacier. We were able to view the summit ridge line on Kedarnath Peak from the plateau, as well as the upper snow field, the middle rock wall, the snow rodge, and the triangle rock wall. The ranged to a snow wall beneath and formed the central portion of the south face of the mountain. On the Plateau, there was a collection of large rocks that had tumbled down from the right flank. the snow wall, which was around 200. High up to the rock in the shape of a triangle. If one wants to climb Kedarnath Peak, he or she has to be properly prepared, both physically and psychologically, in order to do so. Kedarnath Peak is not an easy peak; it is a challenging peak. The months of June through September are ideal for climbing Kedarnath summit.

After the heat of the day has passed, begin the trip to Rishikesh through Haridwar. After arriving in Rishikesh, the first thing you will do is check into your hotel room. After that, you will spend the rest of your time in the city doing whatever you choose. If you don't feel like you need to rest, you may go for a stroll to the Ram Jhula, which is where visitors from all over the world come to experience the spiritual side of Rishikesh. You may also participate in the well-known holy plunge in the Ganges River or attend an evening puja on its banks. Both of these experiences are available to you.

When you have arrived in Uttarkashi, you will check into your hotel and then spend the rest of the day doing whatever you like.

In the beginning, you will have to go to the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering and complete all of the necessary and obligatory paperwork there. You will also have a meeting with the Superintendent of Police at this location.

To go to a teeny-tiny hamlet known as Bhojbasa, you will have to travel around 14 km. Additionally, this voyage will be sufficient to rouse your legs and get them warmed up for the subsequent trekking adventure that will take you closer to the top.

Meals: Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner
You will get up bright and early again today to continue your hiking excursion in the direction of a location that is closer to the top. You will start by taking a brisk walk in the direction of Gaumukh, which is around 5 kilometres distant from Bhojbasa. However, as a result of the damage caused by the cloudburst in 2013, the route is now littered with a boulder area and some running fractures on the glacier road, so you should expect to encounter some difficulties on your trip. In order to reach Gaumukh, you will have to scale a cliff that is almost vertical, thus the trip will be an unforgettable experience for you. After that, you will have lunch here at Gaumukh for an hour, and after that, you will get ready to go towards the location of Tapovan that will serve as your overnight camping spot for today.

As soon as you get there, you will set up your tent next to the babbling streams that are low and trickling. In the evening, you may also go for a walk among the lush wildflower meadows that are located throughout Tapovan.
After you have breakfast, you will get ready to walk some mesmerising way for today because you will be heading towards Kirti Glacier, which is also known as Kirti Bamak. Kirti Glacier is positioned wonderfully amid some huge mountain ranges, and it is the base camp of Mount Kedar Dome 6940 M (22769 Ft.). After you have breakfast, you will get ready to walk some mesmerising road for today because you will be walking towards Kirti Glacier You will need to make your way on foot into a high-altitude zone that is comprised of a trail of rocky terrain and moraines in order to reach the Kirti Glacier.

On the southwestern side of Kirti Glacier is where the glacier descends to meet Gangotri Glacier, and from the glacier snout of Gangotri Glacier, the Bhagirathi River flows southward to join the Ganges River. As soon as you make it to the Kirti Glacier, you are going to pitch up your tent and get some rest for the night.
The ascent from Base Camp to the summit of Kedar Dome is characterised by a high degree of difficulty due to the steepness of the terrain and the presence of falling seracs. In order to make it through this trip, you will make camp at a number of different locations and try to sleep off your exhaustion so that you may continue walking with all of your might the next day. You will spend the first part of the voyage hopping on large boulder-ridden ramps and jumping on multiple cutting tight slopes, and when you finally get at your destination, you will also get your first look of Mount Kedar Dome. However, you should still make time to go camping in the remote areas of the Himalayas and observe the natural beauty that may be found there. In the second half of the trip, you will enter a more technically challenging phase, during which time you will grow used to engaging in activities such as walking in snow boots while using ice axes and crampons. In order to get to the second base camp for this adventure, you will have to abseil down a significant glacier area as well. As soon as you lay your head down for the night, the experience of hiking down this massive mountain will seem more like a dream than a reality.

The magnificence of many other well-known mountains, such as the Bhagirathi Group of Peaks, Mount Shivling, and Mount Meru, will be shown to you from this vantage point.
After spending the whole night singing fabled songs of summit triumph, you will need to be ready for an early morning journey to descend down to Bhojbasa in order to complete the climb. You will have a long ride today, so you will have the opportunity to have two stopovers along the way. The first will be in Tapovan, where you will eat your lunch and take a walk around the magnificent lush green meadows there. After some time has passed, you will make your way back to Bhojbasa, which is still a lengthy trek, and after you have arrived there, you will go back to your tents to sleep off the fatigue caused by travelling such a long distance.
You will get up early to begin the descent to Gangotri, but before you do so, you should finish eating breakfast. Because the trek to Gangotri is a straightforward descent that takes place mostly on a levelled trail, you will cover these 14 km on foot in around four to five hours. After you have arrived in Gangotri, you will first have the remainder of your lunch and then board the vehicle or bus that will take you back to Uttarkashi. After you have arrived in Uttarkashi, check into the hotel, and get set to take advantage of the peaceful atmosphere of your overnight stay in this charming small town.
After you have finished your breakfast, you will get ready to continue your trip back to Rishikesh, which will require you to travel around 170 km. After you have arrived in Rishikesh, the first thing that you will do is check into your hotel room. After that, the rest of the day is entirely at your leisure. You will get the opportunity to experience Rishikesh's lively culture once again and also have some time to do some shopping for the folks back at home.

➽ Preparation for Expedition
As you well know, the great Himalayan expedition is one that requires careful preparation, a strategy that allows for enough flexibility to adapt to whatever challenges may arise.
Therefore, here are some things to consider before setting out on your Kedarnath Dome Peak Expedition:
⦿ Physically – You should start working out at least a month before signing up for a program if you want to be physically prepared for the rigours of a journey. Strengthen your legs by jogging and working out regularly to increase your stamina. To better acclimatise to the environment and increase your resilience on the walk, you should give up smoking and undertake breathing exercises twice a day. Engage in vigorous physical activity, such as playing sports, doing Yoga, or running.
⦿ Mentally –
Getting in shape physically is essential, but mental preparation is just as crucial for a successful walk. Take time to enjoy your regular activities, maintain a healthy diet and sleep schedule, and unwind before embarking on a hike. Predictions regarding the journey should not cause mental worry. Spend time with your closest pals to recharge your batteries and renew your spirit. Pre-trek preconceptions are unwarranted since the first contact with the other trekkers is certain to be a source of inspiration and energy. Conditions during the walk will contribute to the increase in mental readiness. The mental repercussions of physical disadvantages will not be ignored. So, when you hike, pay attention to different regions of your body and purposefully relax them. If you want to enjoy your hike, you should learn to loosen up a little, particularly in the hips. Think about your descent as a simple dance, and enjoy the natural rhythms that the path and your body can discover together gradually, whether you're on a flowing downhill route or a frightening slope. Try out a few new walking techniques to add some fun to your commute without worrying about getting somewhere in particular. Maintaining mental fitness mostly requires a willingness to relax and take in the journey, rather than subjecting oneself to undue stress.

Everything about our visit to Prashar lake was better than we could have imagined. From our initial contact with Himalayan Adventure Trips, we felt their genuine interest in learning about our group's goals and expectations, and our travels with them reinforced at every turn that they not only understood our requirements but also have the acute skill and expertise to achieve them. Having already had such a wonderful experience with this firm, I will be promoting a trek to Prashar lake to all my friends who share my passion for hiking and will specifically recommend that they work with this outfit. Absolutely fantastic; I have nothing but praise for it.
