Dear Pk. You are posting each small and new question as a different thread every time. It would not help you, as anybody answering you will not be able to keep track. It would be better to put the questions in related threads or stick to just one thread for all your travel queries.

The Ponies poo & pee on the road itself....but frequent rains clean it.... If you dread this, take a chopper ride...

The road to Kedarnath is cleaned everyday and yo uwill find sweepers removing the mule excreta almost all day long. It was pretty clean when I went there.

Hopefully it should be. The monsoons are receding then but then as i always say - weather is unpredictable and one never knows what will happen! I will keep posting about the road conditions on the Road Traffic Conditions Uttarakhand thread so keep a track.

Thanks dear. What are the chances to get a room once we reach kedarnath? As we are thinking to stay two nights at kedarnath. After coming back from kedarnath we want to go to chopta and do the tungnath and if possible then chandrashila trek. We are going with family so will it be safe to stay overnight at tungnath? Thanks again. `
