A beautiful place so engrossing, I could feel presence of Lord Siva. Very cold place, go with enough warm cloths. If you decide to walk 14 km take rain coat also.

Kedarnath Temple is must visit temple. Trekking of approx. 16 KMs will take you this holy place. All your stress, tiredness, fatigue will fend off after having darshan of holy shivlinga of Kedarnath.

You need to trek / horse ride / piggy bank or take chopper ride of vertical 16 kms to reach here although views are as good as heaven en-route still people take such hardship to reach here by battering snow, rain and cold. So you can judge... More

I started my pony ride from Gaurikund to the temple. This is about 16km. Along the route, every 2 km, there are shops selling snacks. The road is well maintained thanks to the several personnel enroute who remove the dung strewn by the ponies. It is a treat to watch the terrain during the travel. I didn't feel difficulty while...

As they say,... More

This is the 2nd time I am visiting Kedarnath. Earlier I visited through old road at least 20 years back. That time also I trekked and this May visit also I did trek. It was amazing to see the nature; while I was passing through the glacier I was really feeling elevated.
