Day 5

It was very cold night yesterday, Today I am going to take bath in gaurikund. Gaurikund is a hot water pool. After that the trek starts the total distance between gaurikund and kedarnath is 20km and there are many places come in that trek like rambada, choti ligcholi, badi lingcholi and many others. The trek is full of adventure I completed that trek in 9 hours and arrived kedarnath at the time of evening aarti I take many halts during the trek because it was VERY LONG trek and u have to keep your body hydrated and fit. When I reached and see the temple I am started feeling emotional.
Because it was a dream for me to see the temple and witness it's beauty.
