Kedarnath is a town situated in Uttarakhand and is very well known because of Kedarnath Temple. The temple is one of the sites of the four chota char dham sites which is located in the Himalayas near Chorabari Glacier. The name “Kedarnath” means “the lord of the field” and the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva where he released the holy water from his matted hair which resulted in the formation Ganges River.
We planned our trip to the holy place by road from Dehradun via Rishikesh-Devprayag-Rudraprayag-Guptakashi-Gaurikund-Kedarnath which is about 250kms. Other than road trip travellers can opt for airways. We decided to cover the distance through bike which we rented from Gimmebyk rental firm at Dehradun. The road lasts till Gaurikund after which we need to trek towards Kedarnath of about 24km.
DAY 1: We begin our ride at early morning around 5 o`clock during the month of May. Through the wide road of Jolly grant airport we pass through Dehradun towards Rishikesh which also comprises of mountain pass of dense jungle. As we crossed Rishikesh we decided to halt near a dhaba for our breakfast. The dhaba was situated with a very beautiful view of an old laden bridge.
