All About It
  • 5 Days  4 Nights 

“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.

Also, nestled in the laps of the mighty Himalayas in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand lies ‘Chandrashila’ – the summit of Chandranath Parvat. At an elevation of approximately 13,000 feet above sea level, the Chandrashila Summit is undisputedly one of the most sought after treks in Uttarakhand. With easy accessibility, it draws trekkers, photographers (Insta-worthy shots guaranteed!), tourists, wanderers, history enthusiasts, bird watchers or simply someone who is just searching for peace, tranquility and rejuvenation. The Tungnath temple of Panch Kedar, in particular, offers a mes- merizing panoramic view of the majestic Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi, Trisul, Kedar Peak, Bandarpunch and Chaukhamba.

This trek takes one through bewitching meadows and rich rhododendron trails. The scent of deodar trees envelops you a veritable Bird Lovers/Watchers paradise. For those with a keen eye, you will definitely have a chance to spot some rare species of birds. So keep your binoculars ready!

Up, Uppity Up! As we gear up for the most enthralling day of the itinerary. We start early in the morning from Guptkashi and make our way towards Gaurikund.
The commencement point of the 16km trek to Kedarnath and named after goddess Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva is Gauri Kund. It is also known for its hot water spring. It is believed that taking a dip in the holy water of the pond will wash away the sins.

You can spend some time here before proceeding to Kedarnath Temple. We traverse through a beautiful forest trail up until Rambara. Post Rambara we cross a bridge over the quaintly flowing Mandakini River and trek towards the base camp.

The valley is surrounded by astounding glaciers and waterfalls. Our estimated arrival time is around 5-6 pm. The traveler’s can either opt to go for the evening Aarti or retire for the evening.

We understand that plans change sometimes. If you need to cancel/reduce/amend a guaranteed reservation, please do so latest by 12 noon, 15 days prior to arrival, to avoid cancellation charges. 100% non-refundable should there be any cancellation within 15 days of arrival.                                                 

Bookings made on non-cancellable/non-amendable packages/rates cannot be cancelled/amended. On doing so, the full amount of advance paid will be treated as the cancellation fee. The same terms apply in case if the guests don’t show up.

There would be no refund provided in case there occur some problems due to government orders, harsh weather conditions, protests, landslides, or any other unforeseen circumstances. On the occasion of any such happenings, we have a backup plan ready most of the time and we'll be moving onto that. There are times when we would have to cancel some activities mentioned in the itinerary but it's only due to the reason that we would be bound by a circumstance that is not in our control.
