KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar

Though the splendours of the Himalayan panorama and the auricular feast by the cuckoo and thrush birds are offered throughout the journey, one feels thoroughly debilitated when reaches the last point.

The distance between Gaurikund and the principal shrine is exactly 15 km. and it is the most tedious for any, of any age-group. Three types of conveyance is made available here. Of them, Kandi is of a special kind and the pilgrim seated in basket is carried by the porter tying him to his back. The charge starts from Rs. 250/- and goes up to Rs. 350/-, depending upon the weight of the pilgrim. Next is the Doli. It is a common kind seen in almost all hill temple towns. The charge is indeed very high, minimum being Rs. 400. The most common and easily available one is pony. The charge is ranges from Rs. 150/- to Rs. 300/- though appears to be very high, one cannot but engage it for reaching the feet of the Kedareswar. The ascent being very difficult along the unmetalled narrow road, none prefers trekking, except under extraordinary conditions, for special reasons might be.
