The most awaited Badrinath Kedarnath Dham Yatra starts as you arrive at Haridwar. You will be picked up from the Haridwar Railway station for a straight drive to Guptkashi.
The name of this holy place, referred to as "Hidden Varanasi” is connected to Kedarnath by several means. According to mythology, this is the place where Lord Shiva concealed himself when the Pandava brothers were searching for his divine glimpse. Lord Shiva first hid at Guptkashi but later went up and reached the valley to Kedarnath. Here the Pandavas finally got His darshan, and their wish was fulfilled.
Guptkashi is where the pandas (hereditary pilgrimage priests) of Kedarnath live during the winter when the temple is closed. Also, the Bigraha (idol) of Kedarnath passes through Guptkashi to reach Ukhimath, where the idol is worshiped for six months of winter.
On arrival at Guptkashi, check in at the hotel and take a rest. This place has pleasant weather in summer, with temperatures ranging from 25°C to 30°C. In the evening, visit the Ardhnarishwar Temple, beside the Vishwanath Temple, where the deity is half male and half female, symbolizing Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
Overnight stay at the Hotel.
Your day 2 of the Badrinath Kedarnath tour package includes a medical check-up in the morning. It’s done to check your fitness level for the Kedarnath trek that starts from Sonprayag and takes you at 3,583 m above sea level. Pilgrims are requested to carry personal medicines, heavy woolen, toiletries, and clothes as they will stay at Kedarnath, and the night will be chilly.
Start your trek from Sonprayag to Kedarnath by pony or Doli. On arrival, check in at the pre-booked guest house. Thereafter, go for Kedarnath Darshan, one of India’s 12 Jyotirlingas. Attend the evening Aarti accompanied by holy chants at the Kedarnath temple.
The Kedarnath shrine is one of the most famous pilgrimage sites and among the four dhams in India situated against the scenic backdrop of the Kedarnath range. According to the Hindu belief, Lord Shiva, the God of protection and destruction, is worshiped as Kedarnath. There are many myths regarding how the holy shrine evolved. It is told that Pandavas who wanted to clean their sin after the Kurukshetra war reached Kedarnath for a glimpse of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva was living in the form of a bull, and as he dived into the ground to elude the Pandavas, his hump was left there. The remaining parts fall at four different places, namely Tungnath(arms), Rudranath(face), Madhmaheshwar(belly), and Kalpeshwar(head), evolving into five sacred shrines collectively known as Panch Kedar.
After the aarti completes, come back to the guest house. Stay overnight at Kedarnath.
Wake up before dawn and reach the Kedarnath temple to attend the “Abhishek” ceremony at 4.45 am. Then, all the devotees can enter the Garbha Griha and seek blessings by touching the idol. After that, start a downward trek to Sonprayag and drive to Guptkashi. On arrival, check-in at the hotel.
