Kedarnath Trek in Garhwal, Uttaranchal

Kedarnath Trek
Trek Easy to Moderate
Period May-June, Sep.-Oct.
Duration 3 Days
Kedarnath Trek - Shiva's Abode

Located within the Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary, the ancient Shiva Temple is one of the many said to have been built in the 9th century by the Adi Shankarachya. Though it is depicted as easy trek, it is a respectable ascent, from 1800 to 3400m.

Day 1

Distance : 8 km
Time       : 3 – 4 hours
Level      : Easy

Early morning we will trek to Kedarnath. The walk to Kedarnath is along a cobbled, well-maintained path, called a cheh-footiya, or six-footer, in the local parlance. Gaurikund (1,982m) is a shantly town of pilgrims, porters, ponies, shops, dhabas and dharamshalas. Thetrail eases a bit at Rambara (2,591m) and, with some flat patches around. Night stay at Camp/dharamshala in Rambara.


Distance : 6 km
Time       : 3 hours
Level       : Moderate

We will start trek from Rambara to Kedarnath in the morning. Once we will crest the path at Garurchatti, and we will be in Kedar Valley. We will be getting the feeling of having arrived in a high place and of being dwarfed by what lies beyond – great bank of moraine and snow, and the towering Kedarnath massif. Kedarnath (3,583m) is virtually a township, cluttered with eating houses, hostelries and shop selling religious memorabilia.
Day 3

Distance : 13 km
Time       : 4 hours
Level      : Easy

We will walk up-valley, to Gandhi Sarovar, a tiny lake, 1 km away, where Mahatma Gandhi’s ashes were immersed.
