Kedarnath provides ample trekking opportunities to the tourists. The temple is not directly connected to any motorable road, so, travellers can either avail helicopter services or trek for 14 km from Gaurikund to reach the destination. The most popular trekking route which starts from Kedarnath, traverses along the River Bhagirathi, and then goes through dense forests till Lata. Trekkers usually go from Lata to Gangotri by road in 5 hours, and again from Gangotri, the next part of the trek starts, which goes along the Gangotri Glacier and finally leads to the beautiful lush green meadows of Tapovan. Kedarnath to Vasuki Tal is an enjoyable trek too, and allows the travellers to enjoy the beauty of the Mandakini Valley and the Chaukhamba Peaks.
