All About It
  • 7 Days  6 Nights 

  • Kedarnath temple is the segment of the Char dhams and Panch Kedar in Uttarakhand and is also regarded as one of the most honored and treasured 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. Kedarnath temple is venerated as the most sanctified shrine for pilgrims. It is situated on the bank of the Mandakini River and is perched at an altitude of 3584 meters above sea level. Not forgetting to elucidate, that the Kedarnath temple is also an integrant of the 275 most formidable and mighty temples of Lord Shiva across the world. Previously known as “Kedar Khand”, the temple fosters profound learning of spirituality in the tourists and travelers seeking inner peace and contentment. The famed temple is well-liked amongst adventure chasers and strivers of exploration.
  • Chopta, Located at an altitude of 2,680 meters above sea level, Chopta is the peerless and unparalleled beauty secreted in the outskirts of Uttarakhand offering cryptic and exquisite views of the ranges of the Himalayas such as Trishul, Nanda Devi, and Chaukhamba. This small hamlet illuminates our journey with the abundance of deodar and pine trees and by setting sights on sporadic varieties of flowers and animals. Also recognized as the “Mini Switzerland of India”, Chopta is no less than a painting ornamented and adorned by nature itself.
  • Tungnath Also entitled “the Lord of the Mountains”, is the highest temple of Lord Shiva. Bejeweled at Chandranath parvat, Tungnath is also ornamented as the highest temple in the series of Panch Kedar temples of Uttarakhand. Seizing third place in the striking sequences of the Panch Kedars, it is the Tritiya Kedar perched at a height of 3,680 meters. Sage Vyas Rashi opined Pandavas had to satisfy and persuade Lord Shiva to wash their sins away as they were holding the guilt of slaughtering their cousins i.e. Kauravas. To convince Lord Shiva, Pandavas built the temple.
  • Rishikesh is identified as the adventure capital of India and is also celebrated as the Yoga capital of India.  Enriched with the wealth of yoga and adventure sports such as River Rafting, and Bungee Jumping, Rishikesh greets travelers, tourists, and trekkers throughout the year. The campsite will be situated in the idyllic and heavenly location of Shiv Puri on the banks of the Holy Ganga.
  • Gaurikund -The place where Lord Shiva admitted his love for Goddess Parvati, also where Lord Ganesha acquired his popular “elephant-head” figure.
  • Chandrashila - Moon Rock.
  • Rudraprayag -The phenomenal 'Sangam' of the two holy rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini.
  • Haridwar -The place is known as the gateway to the Gods & one of the seven most holy places in India (Sapta Puri).
