Three legendary shrines of Lord Shiva reputedly built by the Pandavas
of the epic Mahabharata are situated in this Garhwal region of Uttaranchal. The
Kedarnath temple, situated in the Mandakani valley at an altitude of
11800 ft stands against the background of majestic snow-clad mountains.
The trek to Kedarnath begins from Gourikund (8200 ft). The route to
the Rudranath temple (12300 ft) winds through a deep jungle. The steep
nine mile trail leads to Puner, a plateau at an altitude of 14250 ft, which
offers excellent view of Nanda Devi, Trishul and other peaks. The next five-mile trek is a gradual descent down to Rudranath. The temple at Tunganath
is situated at an altitude of 13000 ft. The trek starts from Chopta (9500
ft) and ends at Chandrashila (14000 ft - a one-mile trek from Tunganath)
from where several major peaks of the Indian and Nepal Himalayas can be seen.
The best time to trek in this region is between May to June,
and from the middle of September to early November.
