Devkyara Trek is a thrilling meadow that highlights some grandiose regions like Bhawa, Obra Gad, Jakhol, and many more. This trek is often considered as the foremost attraction of the Himalayas which is located at a height of 4,100 m. It is nestled between the beautiful valleys Rupin and Supin.

It is perfect for both beginners as well as experienced trekkers because it is an easy trek. Devkyara trek is a less explored place which gives breathtaking vistas of famous mountains like Ranglana, Daowdu, Black Peak Bandarpoonch, Kedar Dome as well as Swargarohini. During the trek, you will go through mesmerizing dense pine & oak forests that open to beautiful valleys. However, make sure that you carry your camera because you will come across colorful flowers, wild strawberries, and wild mushrooms that are difficult to find anywhere else.

The best time to go for this trek is from May to June and September to November because this is the time when Dev Kyara Peak is dressed up with exquisiteness. However, the magnificent views of glacier basins, alpine meadows as well as old Himalayan villages are going to make your trekking journey valuable.

Fitness

At high altitude as the air gets thinner oxygen becomes less abundant.The percentage saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen determines the content of oxygen in our blood. After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the level of oxygen in our hemoglobin begins to plummet. However, the human body has both short-term and long-term adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen.

The Kedarkantha Trek is an easy trek suitable for first time trekker with basic fitness

But still if you are thinking of your first big Himalayan trekking experience its better to be prepared. Here is the training schedule to prepare for the trek.

These points should not be avoided

  • If you do come across any reptiles, animals or even insects during the trek, please keep your calm and let it patiently pass by. Any kind of noise and panic will scare them as well.
  • Do not venture out into the forest/waterfalls on your own as it may be dangerous.
  • Trekking is a good adventure, having said that, it is our primary responsibility to take good care of ourselves and be compassionate towards fellow trekkers
