Best Time to Explore the Kedarnath
The Kedarnath Templedoes not have any drivable path, so if you are planning a visit to the temple, be ready to walk uphill Gaurikund. The temple is situated at Garhwal Himalayas close to the Mandakini River. It offers visitors a lot of festivities and religious rituals with one of its biggest ritual being the reinstatement of Lord Shiva statue in the Kedarnath Temple after winter.
It’s never advisable to visit the temple during winter because of the heavy snowfall, and most times the statue of Lord Shivawould not be available in the Kedarnath yatra 2019. From November to May devotion to the statue of Lord Shiva is done in Ukhimath, for pilgrims hoping to enjoy the view of the temple from May to October would be the best time to explore. You can join the India temple tour team in Char Dham Yatra 2019 to explore the spirituality of the temple.
