Don’t misguide. It is absolutely difficult. Recently we visited Sri Kedarnath (1st June 2023). Darshan itself will take minimum 5 hours (due to long line). Then trekking is very very difficult. Road condition is very bad. Thousands of pilgrims and thousands of Horses make it more difficult. If it is raining then situation becomes worse. Possibility of raining is most probable. With all this visits to Kedarnath in one day is very very risky and difficult. Moreover no administrations support at all. Luckily we came back safely.

Chardham road is being widen up under well known Chardham All Weather Road project. During the Chardham yatra, pilgrims might get some delays as JCB’s are on work during day & night. Otherwise road are well and good conditions for travel.
