Journey To Kedarnath in 2011 & 2014
« on: September 09, 2014, 07:49:44 AM »


Kedarnath one of 5  kedar ..changed drastically from 2011 to 2014 ..traces of any kind of living now seldom exist dere....d natural clamity dat hit uttrakhand in 2013 changed d way of lyf here ...big loss for tourism
D journey to dis sacred place was in july 2011....flow of mandakini,,lush greenary... birds ....beautiful trek but all vanished
things changed quite heavily .....in 2011 i made dis journey from delhi n in 2014 from haldwani ...even d trek also changed
earlier it was from Gaurikand n now from sonprayag
route from delhi
delhi----rishikesh---rudraprayag--kund----guptkashi---sonprayag---gaurikund
Before 2013 clamity d trek starts from Gaurikund but now its from sonprayag because whole road from sonprayag to gaurikund collapsed
d orignal trek was 14 km from gaurikund wid rambara n optional stoppage pt midway of  dis trek ...but now dere is no signs of mankind dere...its completey dissapeared from d route ....not a single shop left after himalayan tsunami ..u can see d  damage after flood
now d trek length is 22 km from sonprayag wid linchooli as an optional stoppage pt ...d trek is now changed ...till ramabara...its on left of mandakini but from dere a temporary  bridge to cross mandakini....d whole new route from rambara run parallel to old one ...u can see d damage ..n its intensity ..according to govt fig less then 5000 died but ....if u go dere...u will see even in rambara more the 20,000 died dat day...there was GMVN rest house,,small hotels ..shops...SBI bank... now nothing left....
d trek iz very difficult now from rambara ... a steep hike after linchooli...n then Bugyaal (Meadows)
for dis trek u need a biometric registration..we did it from Guptkashi..its valid for 4 -5 days for outsiders but for local people its for whole season
in 2011 i made dis journey wid  bro n in 2014 again just we 2 ....dis year we made dis trip on opening ceremony
arrangements r ok ..GMVN did dere best...because dere iz not a single facility up dere ....we can only depend on NIM (Nehru institute of mountaineering) personal and GMVN ....
night stay was in tents over 6 ft snow .....its a lifetime journey...i met people doing it for more then 20 times ....i believe will be dere again n again

This place will again see those numbers that used to come here. Your post and pics reminded me of my journey to the sacred place but that was before the calamity.
