  • I fell in love with this place . It's very serene & middle of the nature . It's a very long trek from gangotri which is about 18 - 20 kms but it's worth it .  more »
  • The Significance Of Kedar Tal PC: Ravi Pandey The stunning 17 km trek to Kedar Tal starts from Gangotri and gives you a rare opportunity to browse through lush green valleys, cascading river streams and waterfalls and snow-clad mountain peaks of the Himalayas on the course of your journey. It does take 2-3 days for tourists and visitors to acclimatise themselves to the climate and the cold season. The famous trek commences from Gangotri that is the source of the holy river Ganga. It is one of the most picturesque, high-altitude lakes in the Uttarakhand region. Fed by the Kedar glacier from the surrounding Himalayan peaks, it serves as a source for the Kedar Ganga river that is a tributary of Bhagirathi. The devotees consider this sacred place as Lord Shiva's contribution to Bhagirathi. Blessed with an abundance of fauna like the ghoral, fox, bharal and the Himalayan black bear, Kedar Tal offers a unique experience like never before. The nearby quaint town features busy markets, ancient temples that perform aarti each night, peaceful ashrams and beautiful caves. Enjoy the calm and tranquil atmosphere of the enchanting surroundings walking across the pine forests. A day in Kedar Tal would redefine your body, mind and soul
