Excitement envelops you as you are all set for a rejuvenating holiday to Kedarnath. Spirituality calls and inspiring beauty beckons. Keep in mind some of these important tips and guidelines to avoid any unpleasant circumstances and situations.


  • Reaching Kedarnath is slightly difficult, and so it is highly important to confirm your train/flight bookings in advance to avoid getting stuck.

  • If you are prone to motion sickness, carry vomiting tablets and eat light food as much as possible. You could also carry ‚Äòcamphor' to avoid feeling nauseous.

  • Carry as many woollens as possible as the temperature in Kedarnath tends to fall drastically. Indian sweets like Kishmish or nuts help to prevent cold.


  • It is advisable to book your hotel or camp way in advance, as Kedarnath has limited accommodation options. With the maddening rush during peak season, last minute accommodation may be difficult.

  • If trekking is on your mind, make sure to carry the basic gear required. If you are planning guided adventure tours, make sure to check the license of your operator. It is also advisable to check the trekking gear provided by the adventure company.

  • Carry adequate amount of water, food and other basic amenities for your 14km trek to the temple. It is also suggested to carry light backpacks and leave extra baggage at your hotel/camp.

  • Carry your first aid box replete with emergency medicines, since quick medical facilities are slightly difficult.

With all these things taken care of, you are more than ready to explore Kedarnath. Pack in a bundle of energy and set out on this enthralling journey. A beautiful and splendid destination awaits you.
