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

We took a road trip from Dehradun to Guptkashi. Which was around 200 KM drive but it took us... More

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
