The journey to Kedarnath is a long and arduous one, especially when you do it on foot. It takes more than two days to reach the holy town from Rishikesh, on foot. On the first day of Do Dham Yatra, you walk through a dense forest where wild animals are not uncommon. On the second day, you trek up a mountain with waterfalls and streams along the way. You finally reach Hemkund Sahib, which is about 3 km from Kedarnath Temple.
While this may sound scary for anyone who isn’t used to trekking or hiking, it’s worth it! Once you reach Hemkund Sahib and Kedarnath Temple, there are no words that can describe the serenity of this place.
Kedarnath is the highest pilgrimage site in the Garhwal Himalayas. The town of Kedarnath, at an altitude of 3,583 m (11,755 ft), is one of the four sites in India’s Chota Char Dham pilgrimage circuit.
The temple of Kedarnath is dedicated to Lord Shiva, who is worshiped here as Kedar Nath or “Lord of the Kedar Range”. The temple itself is over 1000 years old and was built by Adi Shankaracharya in 8th century AD.
Badrinath is a Hindu temple located in Badrinath, Chamoli District, Uttarakhand, India. It is one of four temples associated with Chota Char Dham that are grouped as Panch Kedar. It lies on the banks of Alaknanda River in a ravine at an elevation of 3133 m above sea level.
Do Dham Yatra is a pilgrimage to four Hindu temples in the Garhwal Himalayas in Uttarakhand, India.
The four sites are Yamunotri Dham, Gangotri Dham, Kedarnath Dham and Badrinath Dham. These four temples are very important in Hinduism as they are said to be the abode of the gods. The journey is undertaken by thousands of pilgrims every year, who travel on foot from Haridwar to reach these temples. It takes about two weeks to complete the journey on foot, if no halts are made during the journey.
You’ll find plenty of places along the way where you can stop for a break or even stay overnight if it suits your schedule better than continuing straight through. Once you get there, make sure to spend some time meditating on what it means to be part of such a sacred pilgrimage!
In the ancient times, there was no motorable road to Badrinath. The route passes through dense forests and mountains with inhospitable weather conditions. The pilgrims had to trek through snow-clad mountains and cross rivers.
It’s said that the Pandavas took this route before embarking on their journey to heaven. This route is considered to be one of the most difficult routes in India, as it passes through dense forests and mountains with inhospitable weather conditions. The pilgrims had to trek through snow-clad mountains and cross rivers.
