Which is the best time to visit Kedarnath ?

Generally the doors (Kapat) of the Kedarnath temple open to devotees in the month of April and May every year during Akshaya Tritiya tithi and closes on the month of October or November on the occasion of Bhai Dooj. The best time to visit is during the month of April to mid June when the weather is pleasant for steep trekking and sightseeing tours and sometimes from late September till November.

Try not to visit Kedarnath Dham during monsoon from mid June till September as there is high risk of landslides and the trek becomes difficult due to slippery paths.
