It had been a dream of both nature lover and seeker of spiritual bliss to make Kedarnath at least once in life. The temple ensconced in the lap of ice capped mountain ranges is an experience of lifetime. Though a breezy half an hour helicopter ride will take you through, yet, it needs a walk from Gourikund or at least... More

Kedarnath is recovering from the 2013 natural disaster. Sad to see the old path but the government has done a good job on the recovery path. It is humbling to see people's faith as they trudge up the path wearing little warm clothing without any complaints.

This is one of the 12 Jyotirling and situated at high altitude. The view is mesmerising and temple is very ancient and beautiful. The area was severely affected during 2013 flood, but it is all back on track.
