Day 03: Sitapur –Phata/Sirsi – Kedarnath –Phata-Sitapur -O/N Stay in Sitapur
Here is the day when you are preparing for the Chardham Yatra most wanted and toughest part “The Darshan Of Shre Kedarnath Ji” . Here many pilgrims have their own choices and preferences as per their physical ability and comfort. We have designed the program for both of the pilgrims whoever preffered to trek or complete the journey by helicopter.
In case when pilgrims are flying/opting helicopter services to Shri Kedarnath Ji: Pilgrims those are confined to fly and made their reservation in advance for helicopter tickets for Shri Kedarnath Ji can return same day back to Sitapur or Phata base after having darshan. It depends on their helicopter services conditions and last moment availability according to operational capacity or restrains. Or You can prefer to stay in Kedarnath Ji in Govt provided camps or huts or private accommodation available there. We can arrange stay in our recommended guest houses which is comfortable and near to temple. If in last moment any delays due to weather or any technical reason, we can stay in Kedarnath Ji in Govt. provided tents / camps or available guest houses in Kedarnath Ji. The provided accommodation is good and managed with hot water facilities for devotees. The stay in Kedarnath Ji is really amazing and wonderful for devotees in evening when they get chance to see evening Aarti and Rudra Abhishekam of Lord Shiva. Its really life’s one of the most memorable moment when you forget your material Karmas and the moment you live the blessing of Lord Shiva.
In case when pilgrims are trekking/opting Pony or Palaki to Shri Kedarnath Ji – This will be Life’s Most Important Walk where you will be you and Selfless before The Almighty :- Morning drive to Sonprayag -Gaurikund (07 kms drive-one way). The travellers those are confined to trek mostly use to stay in Kedarnath Ji this day. The trek is 19 KM long from Sonprayag and someone tiring for those who are not well acquaintances of mountain treks or regular walking. Rest slow, calm and breathful walking strategies are always helpful in completing this kind of trek. On arrival Kedarnath freshening up, perform Pooja and also Darshan at Shri Kedarnathji. Maximum and generally all trekkers to Shri Kedarnath Ji use to stay here. You can prefer to stay in Kedarnath Ji in Govt provided camps or huts or private accommodation available there. We can arrange stay in our recommended guest houses which is comfortable and near to temple. The stay in Kedarnath Ji is really amazing and wonderful for devotees in evening when they get chance to see evening Aarti and Rudra Abhishekam of Lord Shiva. Its really life’s one of the most memorable moment when you forget your material Karmas and the moment you live the blessing of Lord Shiva. The travellers those are confined to trek mostly use to stay in Kedarnath Ji this day.
Note: The road from Rudraprayag to Guptkashi / Phata is good for small / light vehicles but onward road to Gaurikund is in bad condition , the 14 km old trek route along the river Mandakini from Gaurikund to Rambara and then to Sri Kedarnath is washed away at many places and a new trek is aprox. 19 km long climbing up to 13000 ft. and then coming down to Sri Kedarnath at 11760 ft. , it is not possible to travel this distance in one day so one night stop will be required. Now a days Govt. facilitate with many basic arrangements like Wifi and other health camps to serve in better way and also allow the pilgrims to have a night stay at Sri Kedarnath. It has seen in recent years many trekkers have made their return same day from Gaurikund-Kedarnath-Gaurikund but they were physically fit and strong enough to cover this distance in same day by trek. Now pilgrims are getting new opportunity to see BHIM SHILA a new mythological attraction. A giant stone protected Kedarnath Ji Temple during disaster time.
Note: Now the trekking to Kedarnath Ji has been increased by 05 Km and visitors will be recommended to make night stay in case of trekking. We would advise those are not physically strong to cover this trek on feet , they should hire some assistance like Pony or Pithus to complete the Yatra without any hassle or complication.
Rituals & Activities: Visit Gauri Kund , Darshan of Kedarnath Ji Temple , Bhim Shila and Chance to meet Gurus and Sadhus meditating for long time in Kedarnath.
Day 04: Return back to Sitapur after trek of 06 hrs – O/N stay in Sitapur :-
On this day we will stay in Sitapur to keep a buffer time in hand to handle any last moment delay because of bad weather or any technical or medical reason. This is best way to arrange an itinerary or program for both trekkers and flyers to Shri Kedarnath Ji. In lack of geographical knowledge and climate conditions of this divine land some passengers or some travel agents or tour operators use to keep neck to neck to program for 02 nights in Kedarnath Ji region this always create problem and they themselves use to disturb their further program. You should cover the sight-sing or Darshan of Shri Triyugi Narayan Temple (Optional and Chargeable Extra) for maximum use of this day if we stay in Sitapur.
Highly important to note & understand:
We need to understand that Kedarnath Ji Yatra in Chardham sector is most important for pilgrims those are visiting anytime during summer or winters. Parallel the Kedarnath region is unpredictable in terms of weather turbulence in trek or flying or even technical snag or operation restrains in flying also becomes sometimes major reason for delay in completing Journey of Kedarnath Ji. There are also unforeseen reasons and further it can disturb your schedule If you are fix with your further pre- reserved program. So we should always choose or opt a buffer day in hand to stay in this region (03 Nights in Sitapur / Rampur / Phata/ Guptkashi Including a night in Kedarnath ji in case or optional). Please don’t prefer any hectic program or itinerary suggested by any agent which is recommending only 02 nights in Sitapur or Kedarnath Ji Sector. Being an experienced one in Chardham Yatra service provider we can recommend you these important options to choose with your program and accordingly you can convince your co-passengers or associates.

The road from Guptkashi to Chopta and then to Pipalkoti is good for small vehicles, the road from Pipalkoti and then to Joshimath is better. We will reach Badrinath in evening and night stay in Shree Badrinath. If we reach on time then we can make short visit to temple to participate in evening Aarti.

Once the spot was carpeted with ‘badris’ or wild berries and hence was famous as Badri van. Legend has it, when the Ganga was requested to descend to earth to help suffering humanity; the earth was enable to withstand the force of its decent. Therefore the mighty Ganga was split into 12 holy channels. Alaknanda was one of them that later became the abode of Lord Vishnu or Badrinath.
Narad Kund: A recess in the river, near Tapt Kund, forming a pool from where the Badrinath idol was recovered.
Brahama Kapal: It is a flat platform a few yards north of the temple and on the bank of river Alaknanda. It is an important place for shhradh ceremony or offering of pinds to ensure a heavenly place for dead ancestors or manes. It is said that offering pind here, the manes are permanently enshrined in heaven and no more pinds are to be done elsewhere ever afterwards. Legends have it that when Shiva chopped of the fifth head of Brahma, it got stuck to his trident. Lastly with the blessing of Lord Vishnu at Badrivan, the head of Brahma fell down from the trident at this place & hence the name Brahma-Kapal (head).

Why do travel agents or transporters or Driver charge extra for the excursions sites like Chopta-Mana-Triyugi Narayan- Neel Kanth Mahadev etc onm Chardham ruote ?
Tourism dependants like local driver in Chardham Yatra places in Himalayan Mountain have limited opportunities to earn for their daily livelihood. They are highly dependent on this seasonal business which is hardly come on peak for 30 days. In this limited span of time they need to work hard for their family. So the local drivers associations and other small organizations supported by Uttarakhand Tourism & Travel Association (UKTTA) believes that they should have a nominal charges extra on these kind of excursions which will be a side income other than their fixed daily wageses. So this is also our request being a responsible tourism activist to our pilgrim not to be panic or hesitant or reluctant in giving any nominal amount to these communities. They deserve this being real heroes of this Yatra. The advisable charges for the excursions altogether are Triyugi Narayan Temple +Chopta + Mana (3500 Per Small Vehicle Till 03-04 Seated / 4500 Per Mid Size SUV for 06-07 People/ 5500 Rs for 12 Seats and above).
