“Fire (the sky) is his head, his eyes the sun and the moon, the quarters his ears, his speech the Vedas disclosed, the wind his breath, his heart the uni- verse; from his feet came the earth; he is indeed the inner Self of all things “- Upanishads. The being described here is Lord Shiva, also known as Kedar who forms the essence of this Itinerary apart from the visually appealing trails of course. Located in the most spectacular location of the Char Dham temples, Kedar-nath, devoted to Lord Shiva is one of the holiest pilgrimages for the devout Hindu.

It is set amidst the astonishing mountainscape of the Garhwal Himalayas at the head of the Mandakini River. The holy place is very scenically placed, and is surrounded by haughty, snow-covered mountains, and during summer verdant meadows cover the valleys. Right behind the temple, is the lofty Kedar Dome peak, which is even visible from far off distances.

Up until 2013 there was an old route which passed through Rambada. Due to the unfortunate massive flash floods, this route got destroyed and is now not accessible for the trek. Alternatively, a new route is now shaped to reach Kedarnath temple.

Kedarnath is a town and Nagar Panchayat in Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, India, known primarily for the Kedarnath Temple. It is approximately 86 kilometres from Rudraprayag, the district headquarter. Kedarnath is the most remote of the four Chota Char Dham pilgrimage sites. It is located in the Himalayas, about 3,583 m 
(11,755 ft) above sea level near the Chorabari Glacier, which is the source of the Mandakini river. The town is flanked by snow-capped peaks, most prominently the Kedarnath Mountain.

The nearest road head is at Gaurikund about 16 km away. The town suffered extensive destruction during June 2013 from the Flash Floods caused by orrential rains in Uttarakhand state.

Kedarnath has been a pilgrimage centre since ancient times.The temple's construction is credited to the Pandava brothers mentioned in the Mahabharata. However, the Mahabharata does not mention any place called Kedarnath. One of the earliest references to Kedarnath occurs in the Skanda Purana (c. 7th-8th century), which names Kedara (Kedarnath) as the place where Lord Shiva released the holy waters of Ganga from his matted hair, resulting in the formation of the Ganges River.

According to the hagiographies based on Madhava's Sankshepa Shankara-Vijaya, the 8th century philosopher Adi Shankaracharya died near the Kedarnath mountains; although other hagiographies, based on Anandagiri's Prachina-Shankara-Vijaya, state that he died at Kanchipuram. The ruins of a monument marking the purported resting place of Adi Shankaracharya are located at Kedarnath. Kedarnath was definitely a prominent pilgrimage centre by the 12th century when it is mentioned in Kritya-Kalpataru written by the Gahadavala minister Bhatta Lakshmidhara.

Who should attend?

According to Hinduism the Pilgrimage tirthayatra , is one of the five duties of every Hindu, along with Dharma, Worship, Sanskaras and Observing religious festivals. A pilgrimage is an exercise in willpower, humility and faith, when the devotee travels to often difficult locations, leaving his problems at the feet of the Deity and forgetting everything but God.

A pilgrimage is an intimate experience, a direct connection between the seeker and the sacred. A devotee goes on pilgrimage to see holy men and women, to worship at holy shrines, to have darshan of Deities abiding in ancient sanctums. A pilgrim journeys to see God have a life-changing, bliss-engendering, karma-eradicating contact with the Divine.

THINGS TO CARRY

1.Trekking Shoes -  Shoes that are sturdy, have good grip, have ankle support, and can handle snow.

2. Rucksack & Day Bag pack - Make sure your backpack has good hip support, shoulder support, and quick access pockets.

A day bag pack will help you carry your tiffin box , water bottle and mobile while trekking. 

Trolley Bags are Not Allowed

3. Clothes -
•    Wearing layers is the mantra in the mountains. Layers give you maximum protection from all elements. You will need at least 5 warm layers (Insulin layers). You will need at least 1 pair of inner thermals, 2 light fleece layers, 1  light sweater, and 1  padded jacket. Ensure your padded jacket has a hood as well.
•    A minimum of one pair and a maximum of two pairs of trek pants should suffice for this trek. Wear one pair and carry one just in case it rains/snows. Trek pants with zippered cut offs at the thighs are very suitable for treks. Also, choose quick-dry pants over cotton.

•    Wearing layers is the mantra in the mountains in winters. Layers give you maximum protection from all elements. You will need at least 5 warm layers (Insulin layers). You will need at least 1 pair of inner thermals, 2 light fleece layers, 1 light sweater, and 1 padded jacket. Ensure your padded jacket has a hood as well. A minimum of one pair and a maximum of two pairs of trek pants should suffice for this trek. Wear one pair and carry one just in case it rains/snows. Trek pants with zippered cut offs at the thighs are very suitable for treks. Also, choose quick-dry pants over cotton.

4.Mandatory Accessories:

1.Sunglasses- Sunglasses are to prevent snow blindness. A small overexposure to direct sunlight on snow can lead to snow blindness (about a half hour’s exposure). That’s because fallen snow is like thousands of mirrors that reflect direct UV rays. So you need sunglasses with UV protection.
Buying Tip: Try getting sunglasses that wrap around instead of those that have openings on the side. Even peripheral UV ray exposure is not a good idea.  

2. Sun Cap

3. Synthetic Hand Gloves Get synthetic hand gloves that have waterproofing on the outside and a padded lining on the inside. If you find the combination difficult to get (not likely), wear a tight-fitting fleece hand glove inside a synthetic hand glove. Hand gloves are mandatory on this trek.  

4. Woollen Cap - a woolen head cap that covers your head and ears is absolutely essential.

5.Socks - Apart from three to four pairs of sports socks, take a pair of woolen socks. Sports socks give you cushioning plus warmth. Again the mantra is to wear synthetic socks or at least a synthetic blend. Cotton socks soak in water and sweat. They are very hard to dry. As for woolen socks, they help you to keep warm and snug in the night. If you cannot get woolen socks, wearing two sports socks serves the purpose as well.

6.Power Bank ( Strongly recommended as the campsite runs on Solar energy hence is weather dependent) 

7. Water bottle
Make sure you bring 2 water bottle   & a thermal water bottle for hot water. 

8. Medication (As per medical conditions if any and is subscribed by a doctor).

9. We are located in the middle of a wildlife Sanctuary so there are bound to be insects please try carrying an insect repellent if possible. 

10.Extra cover for your electronic gear items/Valuables.

11. Quick Dry Towel/Towel

12. Torch/headlamp

13. A tiffin box with a spoon for packed lunch is Mandatory we try reduced usage of plastic/paper as much   as possible .

14. Poncho/Raincover

15. Do not leave plastic wrappers(chips,chocolates etc) behind while on Trek and yes! don't forget your "Mask" ofcourse!
