Best time to visit Kedarnath:

For most part of the year, the weather in Kedarnath is very cold. July and August constitute the rainy season, not a recommended time due to land slides. Hence, the ideal time to visit this place is from May to June and September to October.

Inspired? So, this vacation - set off on a spiritual journey to Kedarnath Temple which is located in the breathtaking Garhwal Himalayas.

Another unique Shiva temple is the Jageshwar Temple in the Almora district of Uttarakhand which houses 124 stone temples.
