Kedarnath & Tungnath Yatra mid May 2015

CHORABARI TAL and vasuki tal trek can be conducted in one day?
Most Probably Yes.
A Guide can better tell about new routes doabe at that time of the year or not.
If there is snow or snowfall, then not possible.
Vasuki Taal is 7km far.
Vasuki Tal is little far but if you are able to do it before Lunch Time then Do Chorabari Taal in 2nd half. It is nearer and main Kedarnath Temple area is visible from here.

हिमालय के पहाड़ियों में यूं तो सैकड़ों खूबसूरत ताल हैं, लेकिन भौगोलिक कठिनाइयों और रास्ते का पता न होने के कारण इन सभी जगहों तक पंहुचना किसी के लिए भी बेहद मुश्किल है। भले ही लाखों पर्यटक और ट्रेकर्स हर साल केदारनाथ पहुंचते हैं, लेकिन यहां से करीब 7 किलोमीटर दूर स्‍थित वासुकी ताल' तक कम ही लोग जाते हैं। नागों के राजा वासुकी का सरोवर कहलाने वाले 'वासुकी ताल' तक, कठिन भौगौलिक परिस्थितियों के बाद ही पहुंचा जा सकता है। इसका धार्मिक महत्व भी पौराणिक ग्रंन्थों में कई जगहों पर बताया गया है। कठिन चढ़ाई के बावजूद यहां का खूबसूरत और अनछुआ माहौल ट्रैकरों और श्रद्धालुओं का हौसला बढ़ाता रहता है। आइए inextlive के कैमरे की नजर से देखिए 'वासुकी ताल' का मनमोहक नजारा।


Thank you for your information.

For both the Trekking Vasuki Taal and Chorabari Taal with guide or can be done without guide?
Vasuki taal needs Guide as new way seems more tough and distance is 7km and you can not afford to be lost.
Same guide can take you to Chorabari if you have spare time.
They know area better.
It is all stones after 2013 flood.

Cost will be almost same if you explore on your own and take more time
or take guide to save time.
