The Kedarnath Temple is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples in India. It is situated in the Backdrop of the Himalayas and one is struck by its beauty. This temple is also closed during Winter. The walk to the temple from Gaurikund is tiring but offers delightful views

The divine feeling cant be explained in words. Moreover, the route was thrilling and fun filled. The paranomic view from 10000ft above sea level is mind blowing, with mountains covered with snow, mandakini river flowing below between the mountains etc were just mind blowing. Till Gourikund you can come in bus or car. From Gourikund, kedarnath is 14 kms upwards.... More

We went here before the deluge that almost destroyed this temple. However good to see that Kedarnath jee still holds his firm ground. If you are the adventurous ones, you can take a small trek from the path that normally leads to the mandir and make it to the afternoon arti.

I have taken chopper from Phata on 11th May Monday 2015, weather was not very favourable, light drizzle has started when our chopper lifted but midway drizzle turned in to a moderate Rain. During those moments... More

Had been there thrice. 1982, 2008 & 2012. Wish I can go again. I would like to see how Kedarnath is after the disaster.

Kedharnath and the Himalaya is a very very beautiful place. I don't have any words to explain the natural beauty which I've gone through during sunrise in the early morning. Himalaya was glittering on the top and whole place was very amazing, I wish i could travel every year to this place to make my chance to mingle with nature... More

I truely consider myself fortunate to visit this place with my family. This creation amidst such beautiful surroundings will leave you awe struck. We took the Pawan Hans helicopter from Phata and landed at Kedarnath on 7 June morning 8:30 AM. You will be allowed to stay for 2 hours. The view of the town just before you land reminds... More
