They have been asked to remain vigilant as a precaution. There is no official ban on travel. Pilgrims are being temporarily prevented from going ahead at some of the checking points in view of the weather warnings.

Passengers coming to see Kedarnath Dham are being sent back. Also, devotees were stopped in Sonprayag and Gaurikund. They have been banned from going further from here. Passengers were left for Kedarnath from Sonprayag till 11.30 am on Sunday, but the passengers were stopped at Gaurikund as the weather deteriorated. Deputy District Magistrate Jitendra Kumar Verma and Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijendra Doval appealed to Guptkashi not to go ahead with the passengers in Sonprayag.
