Hotels in Kedarnath
Kedarnath Hotel List
Kedarnath shrine perched in the high altitude of Garhwal Himalayas is an important Lord Shiva shrine and a Shiva Jyotirlingam receiving thousands of pilgrims and tourists each year.
Kedarnath Dham comes within the Chota Chardham Circuit and during the peak Yatra season pilgrims and tourists flock in large numbers to pay a Darshan to Lord Kedarnath Ji. Getting a proper accommodation during the peak season could be a challenge indeed. Since Kedarnath Dham is a very high altitude shrine and is located amid a rugged mountainous topography, setting up hotels in the region is difficult enough. Thus, the accommodation options are limited in Kedarnath.
However, of late the government as well as many private agencies are working towards improving the accommodation infrastructure at Kedarnath and as a result, several hotels ranging from luxury to medium range to budget hotels have come up in the area. Also, there are Government owned guest houses, lodges and camps plus many charitable ashrams where you could consider putting up for a nominal charge.
Some of the popular Kedarnath hotels are listed below. Read on to learn more-
