The verdant valleys and brilliant peaks provide excellent walking opportunities.
Positioned at the pinnacle of the river Mandakini, the Kedarnath shrine is between the holiest pilgrimages of the Hindus. The origin of th forehead here may be tracked to the Mahabharata.

Because he had been followed, he dived in to the bottom, leaving his difficulty on the surface. That protrusion is worshipped while the idol in the shrine.
