Visited Kedarnathji Temple on 11th May 2015. Took Helicopter (Rs 7000 per person to & fro) from Rampur. It is very convenient to reach Kedarnathji Temple via Helicopter. Just 7 minutes flight. There are several Helicopter services available. Can go through trekking also but it is around 21 kms and take 5 to 6 hours. Ponies are easily available. Temple... More

Kedarnath Is One Of The 12 Jyotirlingas Of Lord Shiva. It Is Mentioned In The Holy Scriptures That Lord Shiva Is Himself Present In The Form Of Divine Light In These Twelve Jyotirlingas. In Hindi, If We Breakup The Word Jyotirlinga : It Comprises Of The Word Jyoti(Meaning Divine Light) & Linga(Meaning The Non-Physical Form Of Lord Shiva).Its Indeed A... More

This is one one of the ultimate places for pilgrimage for Hindus. Reaching the temple is a challenge as one of the toughest terrains has to be covered to reach the temple. One can take a helicopter ride to the temple. This is my second visit and I had taken the aerial route this time as I traveled with my... More

Peaceful and crafted location. The humongous mountains in the backdrop adds to the beauty of the place. you can also take a small 3.5 kms trek to the Chorabari Glacier and also an ~8 kms trek to Vasuki taal, from the temple.

Started this yatra on 25/04( the second day of opening), in Son Prayag a medical examination is carried out, basically 4 doctors( 2 registering and 2 examining) are manning the cramped room, It took me 2,5 hours to clear this hurdle, pls ensure your blood pressure is normal, as many yatris were declared unfit. Around 200 metres walk from check... More

The temple at Kedarnath is beautiful and the stonework is worth viewing. It's amazing to think that such a temple was built ages ago at such a remote location where, even in this day and age, it's not easy to reach. And the backdrop in beautiful. Snow capped mountains and amazing views all around just take your breath away.

One of the best days in my life was when I walked towards the Kedarnath Temple. You have to walk about 14KMs from Gauri Kund to reach the temple. It's very cold but very divine. During morning hours, you can go near the Shiva Lingam and perform Abhishekam and Pooja. You are allowed to touch the Lingam. Don't miss the... More
