Can I get darshan at kedarnath jyotirlinga temple on 18th October 2017. How much time does it take on pony ride from Gaurikund to Kedarnath shrine. Can we return the same evening of the day by pony. I read in one of your blogs that Shrine closes on 1st day of Karthik. I am not sure when it is – Does the temple close down on the day of diwali with last aarti or is it on some other day. Kindly answer my question that would be of great help to plan my onward journey if timings are known. Thanks… Read more »

Dr. My humble suggestion will be to travel when the weather is fit for a 70 year old with no rainfall, no extreme weather. And also suggest to engage helicopter which costs 2300 to 2500 per trip one way per head. If the person is fit enough to climb by walk then they can to do so at the fit weather and start around 7 am to reach at 3pm. Check for altitude sickness as you will notice as soon as you reach Kedar. For 2 hours it takes time to settle down. This is just a precaution and not… Read more »
