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?
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.
