14 kms trek with the river Mandakini flowing and falling all the way is a great refreshing sight. But beyond that tp Mayali pass and Khatling is just amazing..

Shri Kedarnath+ Shri Pashupathinath (in Nepal) + Shri Amaranth together constitute one Jyothirlingas. This was the spot where the Adi Shankaracharya took Shiva sayujya. The idol of Adi Shankaracharya here indicates his lost point of journey. Kedarnath is in Uttarakhand State in North India. It is an ancient shrine of more than 6000 years. It is the highest among the... More

The beauty was at its best when it comes to Mandakini river flowing accompanying your way to the temple. It was a magnificent view when i saw the temple with greenery spread all over and the mountains... More

The trek to the temple was hard, but worth every bit of energy spent. words cannot describe the view. The lush green meadows were dotted with snow and ice. Accompanying me was the gushing Mandakini river smashing on the... More

We visited the Shrine just before the mayhem that shook the country. I went there along with my mother. We stayed at the GMVN Hotel at GauriKund. The journey to GauriKund from Dehradun was horrendous courtesy the Bishwanath Sewa bus Service. Our luggages were damaged by the bus operators as they foolishly kept kerosene containers on our luggage and the... More
