Madhmaheshwar Trek

At an altitude of 3497 mtrs is located Madhmeshwar temple. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Among the five temples of Panch Kedar it is the second temple which is visited after Kedarnath. After the visit of Madhmeshwar, Tungnath is to be visited. It is said that these temples are built by Pandavs. Madhmeshwar means the middle or belly part or navel of the bull, considered a divine of Shiva.

In the route to Madhmeshwar from Haridwar to Rudraprayag and Ukhimath, the trek further takes us to Ransi, which has a very old temple built of stones. From Uniana to Madhmeshwar the entire trek is distinguished by wild unparallel scenic beauty in the full view of Chaukhamba, Kedarnath and Neelkantha peaks all along the route. Monal pheasant and Kasturi Deer abound in the area.
