Survey of Kedarnath conducted, snow clearing from route to start from Feb 20
Different departments are all set to start works related to Kedarnath pilgrimage in Uttarakhand from this week. The agencies face huge challenge in clearing snow from the 16 km trek route to the famous Hindu religious centre. Presently the trek route is covered with 5-6 feet snow and in walking area falling on the glacier zone high snow accumulation exits- about 15-20 feet. Kedarnath is receiving regular snowfall and this makes the work of state government complicated.
Kedarnath, located in district Ruderprayag, and annually attracts thousands of devotees from far and near. District Magistrate Mangesh Ghildiyal with other representatives of different department conducted survey of Kedarnath on Monday.
