No one can define the spiritual halo of this holy temple in words. One of the 12 Jytorlingas, the Kedarnath temple is more than 1000 years old. You can only visit the temple in the monts when the shrine is open. Normally May to June and October are the best times to visit. Avoid rainy seasons. I have travelled solo... More

The Jyothirlinga is not only huge but also very powerful. We as a group of 10 people had struggled our way through the 18 km trek from Gauri Kund, but after spending some time in the temple and witnessing the evening Aarti, you feel so refreshed. The new path is safe & wide but poorly designed as it is a... More

Comfortably tucked between the mighty peaks of the Himalayas, the temple looks really cozy. Still overcoming the great tragedy due to floods in 2013, people are still as enthusiastic as ever. We visited during the end of peak season and before the onset of monsoons, hence were really lucky to find very less crowd. Kedarnath isn't just about the temple,... More

When we started from Gaurikund, the weather was bright, sunny and sweaty...Suddenly, a heavy downpour hit at midway at Ramwada...Then suddenly small ice-droplets started falling...The... More
