"Kedarnath is a divine place. To reach kedarnath one can use helicopter service by booking online in advance. There are helipads of various aviation services at patha. Trek from Gaurikund. U have to park your vehicles at son prayag and reach gaurikund 5 to 6 Kms from sonprayag by Jeep services. On reaching Gaurikund one can reach Kedarnath by treking 20 KMs. There are facilities of Prefabricated huts and tents by GMVN (can be booked online in advance or on arrival at spot). This facilities are available on the way at three spots in the way, so one can have a night hault during th trek and enjoy. I advice to plane for 2-3 day trek or take a helicopter Rs6500 round trip. Horse not adviceable (they charge too much)"
