Panch Kedar trek is a combination of treks to five holy shrines of Lord Shiva in the Kedarnath valley. The five temples are Kedarnath (3,583 m), Tungnath(3,680 m ), Rudranath (2,286 m), Madmaheshwar (3,490 m) and Kalpeshwar (2,200 m). According to a folk legend related to the epic Mahabharata, after the bull form of Lord Shiva was caught by Bhima, it disappeared into the ground. Later, it reappeared in parts - hump surfacing in Kedarnath, the arms raising in Tungnath, the nabhi (navel) and stomach appearing in Madhyamaheshwar, the face showing up at Rudranath and the hair and the head surfacing in Kalpeshwar.
