Overview

Panch-Kedar Trek refers to the five temples that are situated in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, India. They are Kedarnath, Tungnath, Rudranath, Madhyamaheshwar, Kalpeshwar.

These temples have an architecture which is about 1000 years old. These temples are made of stone slabs and are a beauty and a sight to see. Surrounded by rhodendrons, the trek to these temples teaches us a lot about their history and the mythology and the significance behind them.

  • Kedarnath:  Kedarnath temple is situated at an elevation of 3584m amongst snowy peaks and forests. With a lot of mythological value attached to it, it is believed that since the hump of the bull appeared at this place, the temple comprises of a Shiva lingam in the shape of a cone representing the bull's hump. The temple which exists today is made up of grey stone slabs and was built by Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th or 9th century AD.
  • Tungnath:  Also known as the highest temple of Lord Shiva in the world. This was the place where the hands of the bull emerged. You can see beautiful peaks such as Nanda Devi, Chowkhamba, Neelkanth and Kedarnath on the trek here.
  • Rudranath:  This temple was formed by natural rock formation and is situated at the height of 2286m. This is where the bull's face appeared. Rudranath Temple lies amidst the alpine meadows and thick forests covered with rhododendrons. A beautiful feature of the temple is that it is surrounded by lots of ponds and Kunds.
  • Madhyamaheshwar:  Madhyamaheshwar is the place where the navel of the bull appeared. It lies at the height of 3289m in the Mansoona village of Garhwal Himalayas. You are likely to spot the rich and unique wildlife of the place on the way including some very endangered species.
  • Kalpeshwar:  The hair of the bull (Lord Shiva) appeared in this region around which the Kalpeshwar temple was built. Urgam Valley, where the temple is located, is an exotic location due to the apple orchards and potato plantations present here. On the way lie the very beautiful Kalpganga and Alaknanda rivers which are an absolute delight for the eyes.
