If you want to feel close to divinity, go on a Panch Kedar Tour. Considering it a holy pilgrimage in the Himalaya circuit, at least 76% of Lord Shiva devotees take the Panch Kedar Tour.
With COVID-19 restrictions lifting, it is time for you to embark on a spiritual journey – only with Divine Kailash. We have a well-organized Panch Kedar Yatra 2023 package. Connect with us to discuss the Panch Kedar Yatra cost in detail.
Of all the shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva, the cluster of 5 temples, known as Panch Kedar, is the most revered. The term “Panch Kedar” can be divided into two parts – ‘Panch’ meaning ‘five’ and ‘Kedar’ meaning ‘Lord Shiva.’
Thus, the name ‘Panch Kedar’ is self-explanatory. The Panch Kedar location is not confined to only one place. Thus, the Panch Kedar Yatra map covers five different temples dedicated to Shiva located at different places in Uttarakhand.
The Panch Kedar list of temples is consisted of:
When you book the Panch Kedar tour, you will go on a long, magnificent journey, wrapped with the element of snow-covered mountains and divinity.
The head of the Panch Kedar is in Nepal and known as Doleshwor Mahadev.
The Panch Kedar Yatra is generally undertaken from April to October. During these months, all the Panch Kedar temples remain open to the pilgrims.
However, during the other months, the area experiences extreme winters, with heavy snowfall. Except for Kalpeshwar, the other four temples remain completely inaccessible and snow-covered.
So, if you want to book the Panch Kedar tour package, do not delay beyond October.
