Kedarnath Yatra is all set to start from 24 April and in the meantime the devastated Sonprayag-Gaurikund route is to be repaired while Gaurikund-Kedarnath pedestrian way is also in the process.
In 2013 deluge a large part of the route was badly damaged. Six kilometres motorway stretch from Sonprayag to Gaurikund was also devastated. As a result the paidal yatra in 2014 was extended by 5 kms. Before deluge travellers from Gaurikund to Kedarnath used to go on foot covering a distance of 14 kms. Again this route is being repaired. Currently this route is open for small vehicles going Gaurikund, but the temporary route gets regularly damaged by the heavy rainfall time-to-time.
