The route was partially broken in the last monsoon. However, trekking can be done in this stretch from May to October.

Gangotri/Bhoj Kharak 5-6 hrs, Bhoj Kharak/ Kedar Kharak 4-5 hrs, Kedar Kharak/ Kedartal 4-5 hrs. On the return way Kedartal / Bhoj Kharak 4-5 hrs, Bhoj Kharak / Gangotri : 4- 5 hrs.

All the trekking assistance/equipments can be availed from GMVN Rishikesh. Since, you are from Kolkata, you may contact GMVN office in Marshall House, BBD Bag for further information..

Ashis,

Do you have any contacts for guides for Kedartal trek.

Preferably if you know some one who is good, knowledgeable and honest enough and from Gangotri town itself.

Regards,

Tanzeem

Hi Soumitra,

The route seems ok. Plenty of Guides & porters would be available at Gangotri in May. There is fantastic porter named Baliram, a nepali migrant who comes to Gangotri during the season. Ask for him near the GMVN Guest House or near the Permit office.

But my guess is you won't be able to go beyond Tapovan. Last year I was there in the first week of June. Had to return back from halfway to Vasuki Tal, road hadn't open till then. In May, there would be too much of snow. Soft snow on crevasses can become a potential risk factor.

No, you won't be able to do reach Vasuki Tal and then to Nandavan in a day unless you guys are professionals. You should plan to camp at Vasuki Tal and then proceed to Nandanvan on the next day.
