The new trek to Kedarnath is good 16 kms from Gaurikund.
After being asked the details by so many travel enthusiasts, I am penning them down here for everyone’s reference:
Following are the means by which one can complete this trip:
1. Helicopter services
2. Pony- Rs.1400/- per head one way. One can bargain on return. It generally takes around 4 and half hours which includes breakfast break.
3. Dholi- one has to pre-book it one day before for to and fro trip.
4. Petu (carrying the person on back): they have no fixed rates.
5. If you prefer to trek, start early around 6-7am and expect to reach at 3pm on an average speed or later. There are lots of shortcuts in between the new trekking routes.
