Hey Gunjan,

You have lots of buses running from Delhi (ISBT) to Kedarnath (Sonprayag) daily operated by Uttrakhand Transportation Corporation.

From Sonpryag you will have to share a jeep till Gaurikund.

Then trek to Kedarnath Temple which is 16kms.

September is a monsoon season so its uncertain.

Its better to visit Kedarnath in the early monsoon.

Kedarnath remains open till October only.

Hope this answers your query.

Have a good day!

By road: Kedarnath is well connected to New Delhi and Dehradun by bus network. If you land in New Delhi, the best way is to take a bus to reach Dehradun which is about 260 km from the Indian capital. Kashmere Gate Bus Terminal and Anand Vihar Bus Terminal in Delhi are the two major interstate bus depots that run regular bus services to Dehradun. Once in Dehradun, you can take a bus to Kedarnath. There are plenty of options to choose from A/C sleeper, non A/C sleeper, Volvo A/C, Volvo A/C and semi-sleeper buses. You can also take a bus from Haridwar to reach Kedarnath. The distance between Haridwar and Kedarnath is around 125 km and buses take about 5 hours to cover the distance. Gaurikund is the nearest motorable area from Kedarnath.

You can also hire a cab from Dehradun if you want to enjoy that lovely stretch at your own will. Taxis ply between Dehradun and Kedarnath and the fare varies depending upon the size/seating capacity of the vehicle.

By train: There is no railway station at Kedarnath. Rishikesh Railway Station is the nearest railway head from Kedarnath. Located about 210 km from Gaurikund, Rishikesh Railway Station is well connected to almost all the major cities of India and has a regular trains on a daily basis. From Rishikesh, one can take a bus to Gaurikund.

Yes, you can travel to Kedarnath in September . It is considered a good time for travelers to visit Kedarnath during September, October and May ,June .
