Kedarnath

On 3584 meters, this is one of the Char Dhams and one of the busiest pilgrimages in the Garhwal Himalayas. It is accepted that so as to dodge the Pandavas, Lord Shiva concealed himself as a bull at Kedarnath, and when found by the Pandavas, he went further into the earth leaving the bulge superficially.

Kedarnath is prominent for its antiquated Shiva Temple, sanctums, Himalayan ranges and undulating scenes. Set apart by the Kedarnath temple, close Chorabari Glacier, the region is flanked by the Kedarnath crests and innumerable more ranges with pinnacles silver with snow.

The most remote of the Char Dhams, and perhaps consequently, a standout amongst the most grandly wonderful, Kedarnath stays shut for the half year of winters because of unendurable temperatures and substantial snowfall.

Places to visit in Kedarnath are Vasuki Tal, Agastyamuni, Chandrashila and Sonprayag are the places of major tourist attraction.
