You are reaching Haridwar on Saturday morning and have to catch the return train on Monday morning, plus you would be using a bus. Sorry but you cannot do the trip. Kedarnath trek does not start from Rudrprayag but from gaurikund, which is another 5 hours journey at the least from Rudrprayag.
Sometimes, the joy that the Daybreak brings, is unparalleled!

It takes whole day, in any case, increase the number of days or forget kedarnath, stay close to haridwar and enjoy the places in leisure rather than spend time in travelling in bus, which is another nightmare.

Yes dear Ravi, if you have only 2 days you can't do Kedarnath even in your own vehicle also. The only way is taking chopper.

You cannot travel after 8 pm in that region.
So you have to have 3 days minimum to visit Kedarnath.
One day from haridwar.
reach gaurikund.
Next day start trekking. return by evening/night, below 8 pm.
Next day catch up haridwar bus at 5 to 8 am. reach haridwar by evening. catch ur train.
If any land slides happen you have to have one more day extra.

Your first post, and an absolute erroneous one. Read the query carefully before commenting. And why the cell no? Also, the sms language is not allowed here, you may receive moderators message soon on this.

In Mountain, no one can tell you the exact time for any destination. Normally it takes 10 hours by bus, and 8 hours by car (including lunch break).
From Gourikund, I think last bus leaves at 10.00 am.

Dear all thanks a lot for all your help. I started my journey on wednesday 12 08 09 eve from hyd with sampark kranti exp at 5 pm, reached H Nizamuddin at 6pm on 13 08 09. I took a auto to ISBT ( Kashmere gate) and booked a ticket for haridwar. Enjoyed a lil in the pub and boarded bus for haridwar at 11 pm. Reached Rishikesh at 6.30 am. Went to bus stand and 7.30 got a tempo bus for gaurikund which I reached at 6.30 pm. As it was raining so i decided to stay back at night, 200rs lodging for night. Started at morning 5am by walk and reached rambada by 7am.Had tea and little rest, Took a horse from there at 7.30 am reached kedarnath by 9.30am.(RS 300 for horse). one hour was the time i spent there with the outstanding darshan of lord kedarnath.started back at exactly 10.30 am and reached back gourikund at 1.40 pm(BY WALK). Immediately I checked out from hotel and moved to nus stand where I got a jeep fopr Guptkashi at 2 pm, reached Gupt kashi by3.40 PM. Immediately boarded another jeep for rudraprayag and reached rudraprayag at 5.10 pm. These jeeps were too good. At rudraprayag I had two options starting at 5.30 jeep and bus, I again took jeep which landed me at rishikesh at about 10 pm. Bravo all my body was aching like Dengue fever patient but, still I managed to catch a bus for delhi at 10.30 pm and reached Kashmere gate at 5.30 am. Took an auo straight for Nizamuddin , got the karnataka sampark ktranthi exp reached back hyd today morning.

To summarize
one night & one day hyd to delhi.
one night to haridwar.
one day to gourikund.
one night rest at gourikund.
one day journey to kedarnath, return journey to rishikesh.
one night journey to delhi.
one day & one night journey to hyd.
Total five nights and four days trip and YES anyone can do it.

Dear all this was a great run and fun for me with spiritual deotion combined, Where there is a will there is a way. I could have saved time by travelling by jeeps to gourikund which if i believe that if started at 6 am from rishikesh should reach at about 2-3 pm. You can get a horse to climb upwards and reach kedarnath same day by 7 to 7.30 pm. stay night at kedar good accomodations available. Early morning complete darshan by 5.30 am and ride back to gourikund should be 2-2.30 hrs journey. Have holy dip in gourikund, and start back by about 9 am. U can take jeep & by the time u reach rishikesh you can also complete the darshan at Gupt kashi and Rudraprayag. You must know Haridwar to kedarnath and back to haridwar is possible in just two perfect days and a night.

Regards,
Ravinder.
