  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

How To Reach Kedarnath

By Road

Kedarnath is well connected through road via major cities such as Chandigarh (387 km), Delhi (458 km), Nagpur (1421 km), Bangalore (2484 km) or Rishikesh (189 km). You can opt out train journey till Haridwar, Kotdwar or Dehradun or air route too if suitable till Dehradun.

From New Delhi

Buses go to Haridwar almost every half an hour. Road takes 6 hours. Also you can go by train, this will take 4-6 hours. From Haridwar you can go directly to Kedarnath but it is also possible to stay there at least one day this beautiful city is placed on Ganga. If your group is more then 5-6 persons you may think about renting a jeep. If jeep is fast enough then you can reach Gaurikund in 9-10 hours. Please note that road from Rishikesh to Gaurikund will be closed from 8 pm to 4 am.

Kedarnath from Haridwar

From Haridwar every day morning buses start to Gaurikund. Advance bookings can be made at GMOA (Garhwal Mandal owners Association) office in front of the railway station. It takes almost one full day journey to reach Gaurikund if there are no Landslides. Bus journey is very beautiful because most of the 240 kms is ghat road journey with many mountains around and river Ganges following you through out the way.

Kedarnath by Taxi or Private Car

If you choose to drive your own vehicle/car, make sure it has good ground clearance as there are rocks strewn all over the route. A powerful engine will make life much easier. There is parking space available at Gaurikund but due to Gate system, only shared taxis running between Gaurikund and Sonprayag get that space.

Gate System on the Way to Kedarnath

In Sonprayag, just 5 km below Gaurikund, there is fatak (gate) to make sure Buses and cars drop pilgrims at Sonprayag. Further from SonPrayag to Gaurikund shared taxis are available which runs in a sequence manner. It ensures minimum traffic snarls, but adds some time to journey. It would be advisable to park your vehicle at SonPrayag and hitch a ride to Gaurikund.

Transport in Gaurikund

Kedarnath is accessible only after a steep 18 km trek through a paved path (horses or palanquins are available for rent) from Gaurikund, which is connected by road from Rishikesh, Haridwar, Dehradun and other important hill stations of the Garhwal and Kumaon regions in Uttaranchal. The charges are fixed for Horses, Dandies and Ponies if you book directly on booking counter. You can check latest Govt rates for Ponies &Palki and book from there only to get best rates.

All Seasonsz team is absolutely amazing for anyone to plan their trip to Munsiyari. We really enjoyed our holidays with them - the guides are good, the itinerary is well thought out and hotels are great located. Especially I liked the Jageshwar day tour with our guide. He did his job perfectly. Wish we had more time to stay in Chaukori and Lohaghat.

Definitely recommend booking !!

We wanted to take our kids on holiday to Uttarakhand this year (first time) but we had very little time to do research on things to do and make a planning for day-to-day activities and good family accommodation. The tour company came through for us. The people were so kind and helpful, coming up with ideas for family activities and quality family resorts with kids activities and kids clubs. Our children couldn't be happier and neither could we. For a hassle-free family holiday, I can definitely recommend booking your stay with this agency.
