    that night we reached guptkashi -there were very less pilgrimes in guptkashi so rates of hotel were down we stayed in a hotel and in morning went to make our permit for kedarnath journey -after devastating calamity govt has made it mandatory to register every pilgrim

    so many vehicles were stucked and abandoned in the sonprayag to gaurikund route-i could clearly see one ford endeavour and qawwalis and other vehicles-people just wanted to save their life and just run away from the uttrakhand...these photos were taken from height and from a 5 megapixel mobile camera with zoom so not clear...
