This was the most memorable trip of my life. The experience of my journey in Kedarnath is one of a kind. It is such that I will not forget in my life. Although being affected by the 2013 floods the place is very serene, calm and beautiful. The sunset and sunrise on the Kedarnath peak is mesmerizing. We wanted to... More

I visited Shri Kedarnath Mandir in the month of June. I was a little worried about the climate. But by the blessing of Bholenath the climate was pleasant. Now the yatra starts from Sonprayag and from Sonprayag the government operated gypsies takes you to Gaurikund at a price of rupees 20 per passanger. From Gaurikund Yatra is of 16 kilometres... More

If one believes in the Divine then this is a place that must be visited. I am not sure if I can even write a review of this place as it is beyond words. The is the PLACE, it is all about Lord Shiva. It is the first Jyothirlingam in the set of twelve. It is believed that Shiva himself... More

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.

I and my mother aged 78 went for Gangothri, Kedarnath Ji and Badrinath Ji pilgrimage. I decided to skip Yamunothri for 2 reasons - 1) I felt it is a long trip adding two days to my trip duration 2) there was a trek at the end of it that is strenuous for mom 3) I felt there isn't enough... More

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.
