The whole range of mountains are so high in vibrations with the hushhh sound of the huge rivers that flow. It will take a person to higher consciousness itself. Due to the last year flood, situation is very tough for people to go to temple. It is good to go on horse, as it was raining and work still going... More

The place is marvelous with scenic beauty and full of adventure. You can feel the energy of gods blessings every where. Best time to visit is during early May and prefer morning hours for prayers as afternoon and evening heavy rain occurs.

This place is a heaven on earth. After 14 km of trekking, you have glimpse of this old historical and religious place. No words can express the beauty of the place and surroundings. Weather is cold and rain can come at any time. at one time there is heat from sun and another moment, fog(clouds) will cover you. A must... More

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
