Kedarnath- Badrinath Dham Yatra : Rain that never Stopped
Finally we reached Gaurikund and geared up for our trekking....
On day 7 at 6.00 a.m,we left to Gaurikund( 5 km) in our Traveller .We hired a pony from registered Ghodawala . The trekking route is around 8 ft to 10 ft wide and it has an iron railing on the edge. There are proper shelters with Bio-friendly toilets for tourists to take rest after every 400-500 meters. Medical facilities available at every halting place. They have also built emergency helipads at Gaurikund, JangalChatti (4kms), Bhimbali (06kms), Lencholi (11 kms), Kedarnath base Camp and 02 more helipads at Kedarnathji. At Bhimbali, and Lenchuli refreshments , fiber cottages , overnight halting facilities are available. As higher we went we found the scenic beauty mind blowing and heavenly. We stopped after 5kms to have tea and biscuits , do not expect express standards of service or hygiene, meanwhile mules also had their breakfast of Jaggery balls and water. We met people walking barefeet, a pregnant lady with her husband, newly married couple ,old people on ponies, dholis ,one thing common among all, travelling all the way in the glory of Lord Shiva for thanksgiving of his bounties upon them.
