Lord Shiva: Panch Kedar Trekking is all about trekking across the most celebrated routes of the five major shrines of Lord Shiva all situated on the Kedarnath valley. Kedarnath, which is situated at the head of the Mandakini River, is basically a natural rock in the form of Shiva Linga that impresses many devotees to seek blessings. Panch Kedar is basically the five famous forms of Lord Shiva namely Kedarnath (3584 mts/11756 ft), Madhya Maheshwar (3289 mts/10788 ft), Tungnath (3810 mts/12497 ft), Rudranath (2286 mts/7000 ft) and Kalpanath (2134 mts/8200 ft). At the base of the Chaukambha Peak, there lies the Madmaheshwar, where the linga is the natural rock that resembles the hump of a bull. Tungnath is the place where the arm of the Shiva appeared and is the highest temple in Garhwal. This is the place where at the height of 500 m Chandrashiela is located that brings the most panoramic view of the Himalayas. Further, the Panch Kedar trekking will take you towards Rudranath, where the face of Shiva is said to have appeared. Here there is a natural rock temple in which the Shiva Mukha is worshipped. To reach Rudranath, one has to trek through alpine meadows and dense forests. Kalpeshwar is situated in the beautiful valley of Urgam. There is a cave temple here and Shiva is worshipped in his matted hair form for a mesmerizing Rudranth Tour.27-1022-04
