Hi there... you don't have to think about it so much ..just take a bus to sonprayag and then to Gaurikund . Rest you have to travel by foot 👣. Don't worry about the food there are lots of langar stalls on the way. carry something to eat while you start the yatra as the trek is tough and after some distance you won't find anything to eat. And most importantly pack your stuff according to the weather there. it can rain anytime there and it's chilly and windy. So keep your warm clothes handy and just say HAR HAR MAHADEV...🕉️🕉️ keep your morale high it will test you to the limits.
Hi, Kedarnath dhaam has few routes you can traverse to reach to the mandir itself. Please note it's a demanding trek anyway you go. Easiest and best way is to reach hardiwar or rishikesh by train. Once there take bus or shared cab to sonprayag (biggest town just before trek starts) you will get good stays and people are welcoming. Relax for day here. Get your passes to start the trek, without registration you can't trek (it's mandatory don't try to skip)
Trek starts at 3:00 in morning and gates close at 22:00 at night. On the way you might not get anything to eat (atleast I couldn't find except one stall) and you get stays and accommadation plus food once in temple premise.
It's a steep hike and you need to keep your head strong to finish it. Don't rush into it and the air at the top might be lesser so pls take good care of yourself. Enjoy the temple premise to fullest and try to stay overnight. Coming down is also something you need to be vigilant about and note the steepness. Have water and something to munch on while hiking
There are rest stops in between
The route is now 22km long compared to earlier 13km Delhi- hardiwar or rishikesh by train Haridwar/rishikesh till sonprayag by bus
Haridwar/rishikesh till sonprayag by shared cab This is the cheapest way to travel. By road traveling takes almost a full day so please be mindful My suggestion either go in a group or find some good group if going solo
