” i.e., the Devprayag,
Rudraprayag, and Karnapyrayag. On the way, we get to see the
holy “Sangam” or union of two rivers- Bhagirathi and Alaknanda.
This union is a visual treat to the eyes. It’s so blissful and divine.
Srinagar also falls into this route, the entire road journey is full of
scenic views. We bet your heart would be filled with joy and
excitement. This is a thrilling journey. Depending on the traffic,
we shall reach Sonprayag by 2 p.m. approximately. Sonprayag is

be lunchtime. Hence we shall have our lunch and rest. Sonprayag
is by the shore of the Mandakini river. In the evening, you can
enjoy the drizzle of the river water. To sit by the river and watch
it flow endlessly is peace in itself. After spending a peaceful
evening, we shall have dinner and then head back to beds to get
ample rest and prepare ourselves for the next day’s trek.

SONPRAYAG TO KEDARNATH JI
We start early morning around 7 a.m. from Sonprayag and head

the time being. From Gaurikund, our actual trek begins, which is
approximately 16 km to Kedarnath temple. This is a steep trek. It’s
a moderate level trek that requires good physical fitness. Before
the tour begins, the physical fitness of every visitor is checked
there. People with respiratory issues and high blood pressure
must avoid this trek. It’s a high altitude trek; hence one must
consult a doctor before trekking. While trekking, we can see snow-clad mountains from a distance. Despite all the hardships, the
beauty of this trek is astounding. Glaciers and waterfalls surround
this valley. The cool breeze and the scenic views are heavenly. You
will forget all the worldly worries, and your heart would be filled
with sheer happiness. In 5-6 hours, i.e. at around 3 p.m., we shall
reach Kedarnath Valley. Now we shall have our lunch and rest. In
the evening, we can attend the evening “Aarti” or prayer at the
temple. The evening aarti lasts for one hour. Let your soul get
drenched in the sacred vibes of prayers and let your spirituality
take you to a different faith and divinity world. It gets quite cold
here at night. This night at the valley is a special one as you can
feel the sacredness inside and outside of you.

KEDARNATH TO CHOPTA
The next morning at 7 a.m., the morning prayers begin. You can
see the beautiful golden rays of the rising sun falling on the
temple. We must stand in the queue for our turn to worship (for
