 Safety level in kedarkantha trekking?

 Kedarkantha trekking is a very safe one. This can be determined on a variety of factors which includes terrains, altitude and weather.

 

 Safety of trekking on the basis of Terrain 

 When the question about terrain rises, kedarkantha is considered as the safest one.  On the basis of following factors-

  • Well maintained routes
  • Easy and multiple well maintained exit points
  • Well maintained campsites
  • Well maintained trails

 There are hardly any sections which are difficult during the routes . However, the only section that is tricky is The Summit, one which requires technical assistance.

 

Safety of trekking on  the basis of Altitude

 Kedarkantha trek elevation is around 12,500 ft . During the first 3 days of the trek the person trekkers tek around 6300ft  in the later half it covers rest distance.

 Points to be kept in mind regarding AMS

  •  The campsites are placed within the normal  altitude each day.  Keeping a little pace increases the chances of getting AMS .
  • The second day is shorter  in length and altitude  gain.  This provides you an opportunity to rest  before a long Summit terk.
  • On the third day, you trek a lot of height . This requires help to recover from the AMS symptoms  that might take place on the Summit day.

The trekker can get hit by AMS from the first day of trekking; most  common symptoms are headache and tiredness which is perhaps due to lack of sleep. The medicine which could be given is a curative  course of diamox which is 250mg.

 The earlier these symptoms are treated the higher the chances of finishing the trekking on time increases.

 As you trek higher and higher towards kedarkantha peaks after11000 ft there are chances  of HAPE/ HAC to occur as well this must be also cured  on time.

 

Safety of trekking on the basis of Weather

On the basis of weather, kedarkantha trekking is safe for 10 months in a year. However the trekking becomes tricky and slippery when there is a lot of snow. It can be managed with the help of various equipment such as microspikes, gaiters etc.

 The trekking also becomes difficult due to extreme cold winters as it can cause various injuries related to extreme colds.it can be tackled with wearing the right winter costume especially designed for trekking, right technique of layering etc.
