Panch Kedar trek

 Introduction :
Panch Kedar trek is attributed to Lord Shiva. The history goes back to the days of Mahabharata. When the war ended five Pandavas started their journey to find Shiva to get rid of the sin for killing their own kinsmen. Lord Shiva fled to Kedarnath from Kashi to elude the Pandavas, and on being detected by them assumed the form of a bull.  Bhim tried to catch Him , but Shiva dived into the earth and only the hump came  in Bhim’s hand.  Shiva was pleased with the determination of the Pandavas to receive His blessings and be freed from the sin of killing their own kinsmen in war and gave them darshan.  This hump is worshipped at Sri Kedarnath Dham today. The Panch Kedar pilgrimage starts with Sri Kedarnath.
