To reach Kedarnath temple, there's a hard trek of 14 kms, gaining 1.6 kms in elevation. While the young and fit walk, many others choose ponies and carriages like in this picture. The people carrying such a carriage typically carry a radio blaring out music, marching lockstep. They reach the destination as fast or some times faster than the ponies, covering the distance in roughly 4 hours.
