About Kedarnath

Kedarnath For devout Hindus, Kedarnath is one of the holiest pilgrimages. It is located at the head of the Mandakini River in the breathtaking Garhwal Himalayan scenery. Lord Shiva, the guardian and destroyer, is also known as Kedar. The shrine of Kedarnath is surrounded by high, snow-capped mountains and grassy meadows that blanket the valleys during the summer. Kedarnath is located in the Himalayas at an elevation of 3,583 metres (11,755 feet) above sea level, near the Chorabari Glacier, the Mandakini’s source. The Chopta Tungnath trek leads to one of the world’s biggest Shiva temples and Uttarakhand’s highest Panch Kedar temple. This 1000-year-old Shiva temple is located at 3,680 metres (12,073 feet) above sea level, just below Chandrashila’s peak..

There are thousands of Shiva temples in India, but the Char Dham yatra (four pilgrim journeys) holds a special place and importance in Hinduism. Kedarnath is one of the four pilgrims. It is a must-visit for all people having faith in Lord Shiva. Also amongst the twelve Jyotirling, the holy Kedarnath temple is of uttermost importance. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience of divinity, faith, and spirituality. The word Kedar means “fields” and Nath means “lord” meaning lord of the fields. Kedarnath is 223 kms. from Rishikesh. It is situated at the height of 3583 mtrs. The temple is located in the Garhwal Himalayan range of Uttarakhand, India. Before 2013 there was an old route that passed from Rambada, but due to the massive flash floods, this route got destroyed and now not accessible for the trek. Hence a new route is now formed to reach Kedarnath temple.

Once you complete your upward Kedarnath trekking journey and reach the holy shrine, you will be welcomed by the spellbinding architecture of the Kedarnath Temple and the mesmerizing views of the surrounding snow-clad Himalayan mountain peaks....
