As I write and write, I rejoice again each and every moment experienced.
Kedarnath: The word itself holds enormous power in it. The place of Shiva amidst of mountains always attract me to pay a visit there. Beautiful pics of temple on various social sites added fuel to my wish and I started making plans for it to visit at earliest. As the temple opens for few months from May/ June to Oct, I was running out of time for 2k19. Silent prayers to Almighty were offered to allow me to pay a visit there this year and thankfully He listened. Finally on a short notice I left Delhi for Darshans of 'Devo k Dev- Mahadev'.
Kedarnath is a remote town in Rudraprayag district in Uttrakhand, approx 230Km from Rishikesh. That directly means guarantee of scenic view of journey throughout the trip. Regular buses ply from Haridwar/ Rishikesh to Gaurikund (nearest motorable road, then trek starts to Kedarnath) in peak season. Off season has this only drawback of lack of direct buses but it comes with less crowd and more nature.
I was relying on local transport starting from Delhi with all good and worse possibilities related to transportation and stay. One thing to be sure that I had done some research on the route and stay options.
