Kedar Massif is formed by three mountains namely Kedarnath, Kedar dome and Bharatekuntha. It is situated at an altitude of 6000 m and is the point from where many glaciers flow including Mandakini. The mountains of Kedarnath and Kedardome are linked to each other by furrows.
The Kedarnath Mountain perched at an altitude 6831m, is very difficult to hike and Kedarnath dome is challenging too. The amount of oxygen in the air is less here, owing to extremely high altitude. Trekkers are advised to take the route from behind the Kedarnath Temple to Bharatekuntha. Chorabhari Tal is located 3 km away in the valley formed by the Kedarnath Massif.
