Trip Overview

Lord Shiva is the supreme most god in Hinduism, hence also named Mahadev (the god of the gods). It is believed that he is the creator, destroyer, and transformer of the universe. People having faith in Hinduism worship lord Shiva. As per stories and legends, Lord Shiva is looked upon as the God of mercy and compassion towards his worshippers. 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.

Tour Itinerary

  • Morning 7:30 am, we drive up to Guptkashi. The name “Guptkashi” translates to
    Hidden Benaras, and is derived from the legend that Lord Shiva once hid himself from the
    Pandavas at this location. Guptkashi is a wonderfully pleasant place to visit in the summers.
    The temperature never goes beyond 30 degrees. During the winter months, however, it can get
    Considerably chilly.
    We make the journey via the Devprayag and Rudraprayag route, which offers us breathtaking
    Glimpses of river Alaknanda and Mandakini. One interesting fact is that river Mandakini actually
    Originates from Kedarnath, which only adds to the spiritual energy and aura that makes this
    Entire trip special.
    While driving alongside the river, we soon find ourselves at the Ardh Narishwar temple at
    Guptkashi. After taking some time to visit the temple and offer prayers, we check into our hotel,
    And take the night to recuperate.
  • Day 2 is one of the most eventful days of the entire Chardham trip. Our destination for the day
    Is Kedarnath, possibly the most well-known and widely travelled dham in our itinerary? According
    To old legends, Kedarnath is the place where Lord Shiva granted the Pandavas redemption after
    Many prayers and requests, upon the end of the Kurukshetra war. “Kedar” is one of the many
    Other alternative names for Lord Shiva. The Kedarnath shrine boasts the entire robust
    Kedarnath Mountain range in the background, and is situated at one of the most majestic
    Locations possible. Because it stands tall at 3,583 meters, the temperature witnessed at the Kedarnath shrine is almost always cold. Light to semi-heavy layers of clothing are recommended even during the summer months. During winters, the weather is so cold that it is not even widely travelled to, and because the climatic conditions can be risky, it is even avoided. There are two main ways of reaching the Kedarnath shrine. One could either take the helicopter (Cost not included in package), for which you will be dropped to the helipad in the morning soon after breakfast. This route, though quicker, stands on the relatively expensive side. Another way to reach the shrine is by trek. You will be driven to Sonprayag, after which a local jeep to Gaurikund will seamlessly bring you to your starting point for the trek. To make your way back, you will have to follow the same route and take a local jeep to Sonprayag again. Regardless of which mode you choose to opt for, you may inform the driver about the duration of your flight or trek, so he can find a suitable place to park and pick you up the next day without any hassle. After witnessing the shrine and spending some time at the dham, we check into a hotel for the night
  • After a vibrant, calming pooja and a delicious breakfast, we check out of our hotel and make
    The journey back from Kedarnath to Sonprayag. After your driver picks you up at the predecided
    Place, we drive back to Guptkashi, where we check into the hotel once again. The itinerary for the rest of the day is empty, giving you enough time to take in and the warm, spiritual energy of the journey so far, and resting for the next few days to come.
  • Today we will wake up around 7-8am. Have your last breakfast with us and we shall drive back to Hridwar/Rishikesh/Dehradun. Afterwards this soul nourishing journey to the Kedarnath we shall bid adieu each other from Haridwar. We shall reach by 6-8 pm at Haridwar. This journey and this trek are going to change you and your inner self. This trek is going to fill us with immense peace, calm, and happiness as if lord Shiva has blessed us. All hail lord Shiva.
