Kedarnath Dome
About Kedarnath Dome

Kedarnath Dome or Kedar Dome are two mountains in the Gangotri Group of peaks in the western Garhwal Himalaya in Uttarakhand state, India. Kedarnath lies on the main ridge that lies south of the Gangotri Glacier, and Kedarnath Dome, a sub peak of the main peak lies on a spur projecting towards the glacier, two kms northwest of Kedarnath. They are at a distance 15 kms south of the Hindu holy site of Gaumukh (the source of the ganges River). Kedarnath is the highest peak on the south side of the Gangotri Glacier, and Kedarnath Dome is the third highest. Both peaks have relatively easy routes on their northwest sides, but the east face of Kedarnath Dome is a large, very difficult rock climb.

Kedarnath Dome  Ascent

Kedarnath and Kedarnath Dome were first climbed together in 1947, by a Swissteam led by André Roch. Their route on Kedarnath Dome, the northwest flank, is still the standard route; it is straightforward and relatively low-angle, and is a popular ski ascent in the spring season. The east face of Kedarnath Dome was first climbed in 1989 by a Hungarian expedition led by Attila Ozsváth. Their climb involved "sixty pitches of very hard climbing."

Kedar Dome peak is a dome shaped mountain in Garhwal range of Himalayas in Uttarakhand India. The peak is 6831 meters above sea level and serves as a ski down peak if the weather is favorable. Kedar dome is relatively easy peak to climb, but would require past climbing experience and ability to survive in high altitude Himalayan weather. It is a wonderful marvel of nature and holds sentimental values to Hindus - as the peaks name itself is that of Lord Shiva.

Ample preparations are needed to climb Kedar Dome peak. You need high quality gears, an experienced trekking team, and permissions from IMF in order to accomplish Kedar Dome trek. The two base camps are at 6200 meters (BC I) and 6700 meters (BC II). Himalayan weather is always unpredictable and dedicated mountaineers would know that. Possibility of Ski down from the peak would also depend on certain conditions like snow-cover (to avoid avalanche), snow storms and right hours to attempt. All in all Kedar dome peak climb demands courage and ability to survive against the odds.
