Life iz full of dreams ....different kind of ...i m also living a dream  ...n its Gangotri to kedarnath Trek
dere will be anxious moments in life , but dat would be a hell of a story to tell my grandchildren one day  :) ...dis trek iz, n most probably will be , much awaited trek for me
 
Auden’s Col  iz a pass connecting Rudugaira valley n Bhilangna valley, named after John Bicknell Auden a British Geographical Survey officer, who first discovered it in 1935 and crossed it in 1939... d pass iz at 5490m altitude n connects d ridge coming from Gangotri III (6580m) peak on d north-west and the ridge coming from Jogin I (6465m) on the east, and also binds a glacier coming from Jogin I on the north side of Rudugaira valley, and deadly Khatling glacier on the south side of Bhilangna valley.
Rudra ganga stream or Rudragairu (gairu means deep) or Rudugaira gad drains Rudugaira glacier and eventually flows into Bhagirathi (Ganga) river near Gangotri, and Bhilangna river originates from Khatling glacier and meets Bhagirathi near Old Tehri.
 
As per a legend, Pandawas were searching lord shiva to seek his blessing, to atone for the sins of committing fratricide during Mahabharata but the Shiva wanted to avoid them. Pandawas searched him in many places and reached in the Garhwal Himalayas. At one place Bhima saw a Bull grazing in the Himalayan meadow, He immediately recognized Shiva and ran towards him & caught his back but Shiva disappeared in the ground and his body parts reappeared in the five different areas, which are known as the Panch Kedar. Hump at kedarnath, Arms at Tungnath, Face at Rudranath, Navel at Madhymaheshwar & Hair at Kalpeshwar. Pandawas built the temples in these five places.

Kedarnath is one of 12 Jyotirlingas and is situated at 14 km. afoot distance from Gaurikund in the altitude of 3581 mts. Gaurikund is well connected to the other cities of India by road. Every year many pilgrims reach Kedarnath from this route, but some amateur trekkers reach Kedarnath from other trekking routes also. Some of the famous trekking routes are:

1. Ghuttu - Panwali kantha - TriyugiNarayan - Kedarnath

2. Ghuttu - Gangi - Masar Tal - Mayali Pass - Vasuki tal - Kedarnath

3. Ransi - Manani Bugyal - Kham Pass - Kedarnath
