Overview

                                            

Kedarnath Yatra is a religious pilgrimage that takes you to the sacred town of Kedarnath, located in the state of Uttarakhand in India. It is one of the most important destinations for Hindu pilgrims as it is believed to be one of the four shrines in the Chota Char Dham Yatra.

Kedarnath temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated at an altitude of 3,583 meters above sea level, surrounded by the snow-capped Himalayan ranges. The temple is located near the Mandakini River, which flows from the Kedarnath glacier.

The Kedarnath Yatra is open to devotees from April to November, with the peak season being from May to June and September to October. During the monsoon season, the yatra is closed due to heavy rainfall and the risk of landslides.

The yatra to Kedarnath involves a trek of approximately 17 km from Gaurikund, which is the starting point of the pilgrimage. The trek is arduous and challenging as it involves steep climbs, narrow pathways, and unpredictable weather conditions. However, it is also a spiritual journey that tests your endurance, faith, and determination.

Along the way, you will come across several landmarks such as the Bhairav Temple, Gandhi Sarovar, and the Vasuki Tal. These places are believed to have religious significance and are popular among tourists and devotees alike.

As you near the Kedarnath temple, you will be greeted by the majestic view of the Himalayas, which is a sight to behold. The temple itself is a stunning example of ancient architecture and is believed to have been built by the Pandavas during the Mahabharata era.

The Kedarnath Yatra is not just a pilgrimage but also an opportunity to connect with nature and witness the beauty of the Himalayas. The region is home to several rare species of flora and fauna, including the elusive snow leopard.

In conclusion, the Kedarnath Yatra is a journey of faith, devotion, and endurance that takes you on a spiritual and physical adventure. It is an experience that leaves a lasting impression on your mind and soul, and one that you will cherish for a lifetime
