Dehra Dun: The yatra to the Himalayan shrine of Kedarnath in Rudraprayag district remained suspended for the fifth consecutive day on Tuesday as the repair work on the 14-km long trek route damaged by the landslides is yet to be completed.

Official sources said repair of the damaged Gaurikund-Kedarnath trek is still going on. Efforts are on to resume the movement of pilgrims on trek as early as possible, which is blocked since Friday when landslides had hit the trek damaging it.

The alternative trek route to Kedarnath is very narrow making it dangerous for pilgrims to use it, they added.

Kedarnath is situtated at a height of 3581 metres in Garhwal Himalayas. The shrine is dedicated to Lord Shiva.
