 The origin and the trek options :
Legend has it that Lord Shiva, unwilling to give darshan to the Pandavas who had killed their own kinsmen, the Kauravas, dived into the earth at Kedarnath and His naval portion reappeared at Madamaheshwar. Madmheshwar is therefore one of the Panch Kedars, meaning one of the five Shiva shrines. The temple opens some time very close to the day when the temples of Sri Kedarnath and Sri Badrinath open and closes for winters on dates fixed by the pujaries. During the winters Lord Madmheshwar moves down to Ukhimath and is worshipped in the temple of Lord Onkareshwar.It is an interesting trek to the Temple of Lord Shiva which is situated at a great height.  The temple similar but smaller than Sri Kedarnath temple is located in beautiful surroundings. It is not known as who built it but it certainly is an example of great devotion the royalties had in Uttarakhand shrines. The trek starts from Guptakashi and passes through the famous Sidha Pith of Kalimath.  It is a pathway of unparalleled scenic beauty with the magnificent snow capped, peaks of Chaukhamba, Kedarnath and Nilkanth soaring up to the Heavens.  There are three options for going to Madmaheshwar from Guptakashi or Ukhimath, the two options are depicted below:-
 The trek option 1 :
Those who may enjoy walking all the way from Guptakashi to Madmaheshwar without caring for a motor ride and interested in an opportunity for paying obeisance at the feet of Goddess Durga at Kalimath.
