The travellers those are confined to trek mostly use to stay in Kedarnath Ji this day. The trek is 19 KM long from Sonprayag and someone tiring for those who are not well acquaintances of mountain treks or regular walking. Rest slow, calm and breathful walking strategies are always helpful in completing this kind of trek. On arrival Kedarnath freshening up, perform Pooja and also Darshan at Shri Kedarnathji. Maximum and generally all trekkers to Shri Kedarnath Ji use to stay here. You can prefer to stay in Kedarnath Ji in Govt provided camps or huts or private accommodation available there.

The travellers those are confined to trek mostly use to stay in Kedarnath Ji this day.
The road from Rudraprayag to Guptkashi / Phata is good for small / light vehicles but onward road to Gaurikund is in bad condition, the 14 km old trek route
along the river Mandakini from Gaurikund to Rambara and then to Sri Kedarnath is washed away at many places and a new trek is approx. 19 km long
climbing up to 13000 ft. and then coming down to Sri Kedarnath at 11760 ft. , it is not possible to travel this distance in one day so one night stop will be
required. Now a days Govt. facilitate with many basic arrangements like Wifi and other health camps to serve in better way and also allow the pilgrims to
have a night stay at Sri Kedarnath. It has seen in recent years many trekkers have made their return same day from Gaurikund-KedarnathGaurikund but they were physically fit and strong enough to cover this distance in same day by trek. Now pilgrims are getting new opportunity to see BHIM
SHILA a new mythological attraction. A giant stone protected Kedarnath Ji Temple during disaster time.
Note: Now the trekking to Kedarnath Ji has been increased by 05 Km and visitors will be recommended to make night stay in case of trekking. We would
advise those are not physically strong to cover this trek on feet , they should hire some assistance like Pony or Pithus to complete the Yatra without any
hassle or complication. Rituals and Activities: Visit Gauri Kund , Darshan of Kedarnath Ji Temple , Bhim Shila and Chance to meet Gurus and Sadhus meditating for long time in Kedarnath. Highly important to note and understand:We need to understand that Kedarnath Ji Yatra in Chardham sector is most important for pilgrims those are visiting anytime during summer or winters. Parallel the Kedarnath region is unpredictable in terms of weather turbulence in trek or flying or even technical snag or operation restrains in flying also becomes sometimes major reason for delay in completing Journey of Kedarnath Ji. There are also unforeseen reasons and further it can disturb your schedule If you are fix with your further pre- reserved program. So we should always choose or opt a buffer day in hand to stay in this region (03 Nights in Sitapur / Rampur / Phata/ Guptkashi Including a night in Kedarnath ji in case or optional). Please don’t prefer any hectic program or itinerary suggested by any agent which is recommending only 02 nights in Sitapur or Kedarnath Ji Sector. Being an experienced one in Chardham Yatra service provider we can recommend you these important options to choose with your program and accordingly you can convince your co-passengers or associates

Once the spot was carpeted with ‘badris’ or wild berries and hence was famous as Badri van. Legend has it, when the Ganga was requested to descend to earth to help suffering humanity; the earth was enable to withstand the force of its decent. Therefore the mighty Ganga was split into 12 holy channels. Alaknanda was one of them that later became the abode of Lord Vishnu or Badrinath.

and no more pinds are to be done elsewhere ever afterwards. Legends have it that when Shiva chopped of the fifth head of Brahma, it got stuck to his
trident. Lastly with the blessing of Lord Vishnu at Badrivan, the head of Brahma fell down from the trident at this place and hence the name Brahma-Kapal
