Kedarnath, holding at an altitude of 3,553 meters from the sea level, is located in the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand. Of all the Chardham Yatra, Kedarnath Yatra holds greater importance because of its religious significance and also because of the level of difficulty it involves to reach the shrine of Lord Shiva.

Shrine Yatra offers you the opportunity to avail a specially curated trek guide to Kedarnath only for you.
