Participants learn the basics of a snow trek, self-rescue techniques and snow route creation during the expedition. This is a self-contained expedition where participants pitch their own tents to set up camp at a different location every day, cook their own food and manage resources and share responsibilities. The trekking route meanders through snow-covered meadows and pine & oak forests. The trek has a gradual climb with beautiful camping spots in the middle. The Kedarkantha peak offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Himalayas.
