About Kedarnath Yatra

Kedarnath Yatra is a sacred pilgrimage according to the Hindu religion. The temple is situated in the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, India and therefore Kedarnath temple is visited by thousands of devotees every year. Kedarnath, along with being a Holy place, is one of the Char Dham temples (Badrinath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri). With a stunning height of 3584 meters above sea level, and therefore Kedarnath Yatra is a magnificent journey to embark on.

Kedarnath temple is located in the spectacular range of the great Himalayas having white snow-covered mountains. Kedarnath temple is a center of attraction for thousands of visitors each and every year. The Mandakini river, which is a tributary of the Alaknanda river is known to be a sacred river flowing through the past of the Kedarnath. Kedarnath town falls near the glacier Chorabari, the top of the Mandakini river. Kedarnath yatra begins from the Sonprayag town that falls in the district of Rudraprayag in Uttarakhand. This is only 5 km. far away from Gaurikund (the endpoint to reach Kedarnath temple). Reaching Gaurikund, your Kedarnath yatra starts with a paved foot.

Now, the Kedarnath Yatra starts off for the temple with a distance of 14 Km from the Gaurikund. Gaurikund is well connected by roads so you can reach here easily by vehicle (facility available for pilgrims). While passing through the Gaurikund, you get stunned finding a hot spring in the middle of the snow-covered landscape. Taking a bath at this hot spring to go to the Kedarnath temple is known to be good according to Hindu belief. Once passing the Gaurikund, your journey goes through the Jungle Chatti, Bheembali, and Lichauli. And finally, you reach the Kedarnath base camp that is only 1 km. far from the Kedarnath temple.

The utmost weather condition of Kedarnath allows the temple to be open from April end to the beginning of November. According to Hindu mythology, basically, there are twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva or Kedar, Kedarnath temple is one among them. Now, you can also enjoy the 4G network availability at Kedarnath by BSNL, JIO, and AIRTEL. For visitors having Epass is mandatory to enter Uttarakhand and for Kedarnath as well.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

1What kind of clothes can we wear?

As you will walk through several ascents and descents, it is recommended to wear most comfortable clothes like tracksuit, normal t-shirts & lowers.

We always emphasize having a short group as it becomes easier to instruct them. Also, it is easier to travel throughout without any impeded.

3 Will the food provided be vegetarian?

Yes. We will provide Indian Vegetarian food throughout the journey.

Probably yes, We always finish the trek in the mentioned time period, until & unless there is no emergency kind of a situation.

Before you load up your backpack with trekking socks and Kendal mint cake, give some thought to the infrastructure on the route you plan to conquer. Some treks require total self-sufficiency, sleeping under canvas and purifying water as you go; other routes have refuges or rustic teahouses every step of the way. Here are some of the key considerations:

  • Travel light: every extra gram will weigh you down on the trails; if it isn't essential, leave it behind.
  • Respect your feet: boots offer more support, but all-terrain trainers are lighter and dry more quickly after a soaking.
  • Protect your knees: trekking poles can help control the knee-crushing descents that are a feature of pretty much every trek.
  • Climb slowly: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can kill, so ascend slowly and take rest days to acclimatize on any trek above 2,500m in elevation.
  • Heed the weather: when treks go wrong, it's normally because of the weather, so check the forecasts; if conditions look bad, stop somewhere safe and sit it out, rather than pushing on over the next pass.
  • Be prepared: don't launch straight from the sofa to the summit–warm up with gentler walks, hikes and runs to get your body used to the exertion.
  • Plan ahead: many trekking routes require a permit and advance booking for lodges and camp sites; for some routes, you need to book months ahead.
