Kedarnath, the famous Hindu temple now going to become a hub for adventure sports in Uttarakhand.
In an effort to raise the state economy after the 2013 calamity, the state government is going to promote Kedarnath as a haven for winter sports when the Shiva shrine closes for winter months.
Scenic surrounding, gradual slopes and snowfall in the month of January and February are best to attract adventure enthusiasts for skiing, ski-scooter and ski-vehicle rides.
“Depending on the weather, we will keep the helipad free of snow, will take people from Guptkashi in a helicopter for some Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 7,000 per seat and offer winter sports like skiing,” Chief Secretary Rakesh Sharma said.
