Have hotels been established in kedarnath? That is, if I go there, will I have to say at tents or hotels gave come up? Same applies for Gaurikund. I have heard, that being on shore of Mandakini, most of hotels have been washed away. Have new ones come up in place of them?

    Couple of hotels are functional while many are being re-constructed. Life is coming back to its pace there.

  • @Tal but I heard that people need to stay in tents nowadays. Can you give an official source?

According to Booking.com, Hostelworld.com and Tripadvisor, the closest proper hotel to Kedarnath is Shivalik Valley Resorts, which is approximately 19km away on foot. Tripadvisor reviews confirm that it's a good starting point for a trek to Kedarnath:

We had a wonderful experience here. Slept well, ate well and felt fully ready to make the climb to Kedarnath! Hot showers after the hike felt phenomenal! I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel and would stay here again in the future.
