The state offers peace of mind and calmness better than any other! The scenic beauty and the aesthetics make it a land of dreams. Few of the most important tourist destinations in this state are: Kedarnath, Badrinath, Rishikesh, and Haridwar.
The holy town of Badrinath is one of the four dhaams of India. Religiously inclined people make it a point to visit this place at least once in their life time. The Alakananda River passes nearby enhancing the beauty of the place.
Kedarnath is one of the most paramount places for Lord Shiva devotees. Inspite of the high altitude and extreme temperatures, tourists visit in flooding numbers during the summer months. It requires enough dedication and passion to trek a total of 14 km. However the expedition is well compensated by the dominating spiritual ambiance. The spirituality is enhanced by the unruffled and tranquiling beauty of the region
Rishikesh is the yoga capital of the world and people from all over the world visit this place for this very reason! Yoga offers physical as well as mental relaxation. This place is home to many sages and has ashrams which preach yoga and meditation.

We would start the soulful trip with a visit to Guptkashi via Devprayag and Rudraprayag, where we’ll be driven to from the station upon arrival. We will be able to witness the sacred Ganga and Alakananda Rivers on our way to Guptkashi. We will also pass by the ever beautiful Mandakini River.
On reaching Guptkashi we’ll visit Vishwanath Temple (alternatively known as Ardh Narishwar Temple). Guptkashi, when translated from Hindi, means “Hidden Varanasi”.
As per popular legend, when the Pandava brothers (characters from the epic Mahabharata), were in the quest of Lord Shiva, Lord Shiva initially disguised himself as Guptkashi! The Pandavas could finally meet Lord Shiva in his true form further up in Kedarnath. The priests of Kedarnath Temple reside in Guptkashi during the winter months when the temple remains shut. Guptkashi is in a true sense a divine place with spiritual as well as tangible connections. Since it is in a comparatively lower altitude, the weather remains very comfortable and pleasant during the summer months.

On the second day we would go out on an adventurous trip to Kedarnath. In order to cover the distance, we’ll take helicopters till Gaurikund from where we need to cover up the distance on ponies or by walking. Walking would take around 5 hours for an average person.
Kedarnath radiates a calm and divine aura to every traveller. The shrine houses 12 jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. The scenic beauty of the shrine is unparalleled as one can witness the majestic Kedarnath range in its full glory. According to mythology, the Pandava brothers regretted their act of killing their own cousins- the Kauravas, wanted the blessings from Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva didn’t appear before them immediately and fled to four different places, leaving different parts of his body at these places. The arms appeared at Tungnath, the face at Rudranath, the belly at Madhmaheshwar and his locks (hair) with head at Kalpeshwar. Kedarnath and the four above-mentioned shrines are treated as Panch Kedar.
After the mirthful and eventful Kedar trek, we would be dropped off to our hotels in Guptkashi by our driver.
