Less number of Accommodation Facilities available in Kedarnath Dham

This time in Kedarnath Dham, the number of pilgrims staying in the night will be limited. Last time, there were arrangements for night stay for about 5000 pilgrims. This time it will be barely close to only 2500. This year due to heavy snowfall the Huts and the Rest House of GMVN has been damaged. Last time, the Tent Colony was made by GMVN at Kedarnath, but this time due to other construction work there is a problem of space. The number of beds has been close to 800 due to the creation of cottages by UP Construction Corporation. While the last time around 1400 beds were used. Due to the damage done during snowfall, the number of beds in the corporation has dropped from 500 to 200. The number of VIP beds has also decreased to 60 in Swargarohini. Commissioner Garhwal B V R C Purshottam said that more and more arrangements are being made for devotees coming to Kedarnath Dham, it is being taken care of. The number of beds is increasing. Tents are also being taken from SDRF. Our effort will be to increase the number of beds to 4000.
