Travelling to kartik Swamy temple mesmerise me giving an unforgettable feel a lifelong. The Temple is situated in Uttarakhand dev bhoomi and is easily accessible from Rudraprayag. Catch a bus to pokhri from Rudraprayag will take around two hours to reach Kanakchori village,where the Karthik Swamy temple base camp site situated,buses are not available after 2pm from Rudraprayag. Kanakchori is a small village having less than 10 houses you will find the kartikswamy arch here where the trek starts from. I took a local room charging 200 per day as am single for family or who wants some amnesties prefer Mayadeep Resort having 5 Rooms with good service. Temple accessible at any time but prefer early morning to visit the scenic beauty of this place don't forget to reach the temple before sunrise, cause I never forget the sunrise view from this temple.Its just 3 to4 km trek route from the village bearly takes 2 to 3 hours to reach an average person. You will observe the kedar nandadevi hills as back views of the temple.
