A month is about to complete since the portals of Kedar Dham opened. And so far an estimate of about 40,774 passengers have visited the shrine for darshan. The number is much higher than the last year tourists inflow.

The disaster affected the yatra heavily bringing a steep decline in tourism sector of the state. A mediocre number of only 40 thousand pilgrims made it to the yatra last year.

2364 devotees reached the holy shrine to seek blessings of Kedar baba. The number included seven foreigners, 1201 men, 1025 women and 131 kids from all over the country.
