Rudranath is one of the "Panchkedar tracks"(18kms) dedicated to Lord Shiva in Uttrakhand. It is situated in the Chamoli district of Uttrakhand at the altitude of 11400ft. This scenic track will fill you with beautiful scenes of alpines and snowy mountains.
We started our journey from Dehradun at morning 6.30am with the aim of reaching at Gopeshwar around 5-6 pm. Dehradun to Gopeshwar is 255 km via Rishikesh- Devprayag route and takes around 10-11 hr depending upon the road traffic and conditions. Rather than going to the usual route, we took alternative route of Rishikesh-tehri-srinagar route. It is around 298 kms and have very low traffic density.
We reached at Chamba (88kms) around 10.30am where we pick one of our friend. From there we reached Srinagar(94kms) at 2pm. In between we stopped at different stations to took photos and snacks. We were not feeling hungry and targeted Rudraprayag (30km ahead) for lunch. After around 3pm we were in Rudraprayag. We searched for the proper food (dal chawal) but couldn't find anything. Now we have to settled for Fast food. After Filling our tummies we started again our journey to Gopeshwar (72kms) at 3.40pm. At around 7.30 we were in Gopeshwar and finally reached our destination of Sagar village (2km).
You can easily find the hotels in Sagar village at affordable prices. Five of us took a room at 1000r at Hariyali resort Sagar. Rooms are good but we didn't like the food which is okay for me. I advised you to buy thali which cost 100r/person rather than different items separately. We ordered different items and paid 1000r which wasn't ideal.
