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

Amidst the dramatic mountainscapes of the majestic Kedarnath range stands one of the twelve Jyotilingas of Lord Shiva. It's holiest shrine of the Hindu and a sacred pilgrimage too.. The cascading Mandakini River, verdant landscapes, the mesmerizing vistas and splendid... More

Great place to be here.. excellent irrespective of age.... Every visit gives peace of mind and take one step closure to supreme God.. Jai Bole Nath... Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the end of April (Akshaya Tritriya) to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon, usually end of October).

And while the human heads as semi withered flowers were hunging around me, on the shoulders of tired asleep passengers, the bus was jouncing towards the Himalayas. The magnificence of nature and the Ganges in the distance while meeting lighter greenish Mandakini, carried the power of a completely unusual, beautiful and dangerous world. The highlight of my trip to Asia... More
