A year later, though the Kedarnath shrine has been opened to the public, the horror that the pilgrims faced during the multiday cloudburst remain fresh. As many as 5000 people lost their lives in the flash floods and many people including pilgrims were displaced.
Latest reports suggest that dead bodies of several pilgrims have been recovered in Jungle Chatti of Kedarnath, that was devastated in last year's cloudburst, torrential rains, flash-floods and landslides.
Scattered belongings like clothes, bags, shoes and suitcases of the pilgrims have also been found near their dead bodies.
Though this was termed as the worst natural calamity since the 2004 tsunami, the state has definitely bounced back with memories that will continue to haunt the people for a long time.
