Tour Details

In This Tour we will take you to the “India’s First Astro Village- Benital” which is known for its beautiful night sky and the milky way or other celestial stars can be easily seen from this place. Benital is a meadow situated in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. It is 30kms from Karnaprayag which lies on NH58.

Kartik swami temple is the only single temple in North India of Lord Kartikeya, who is the elder son of Lord Shiva. Although there exist numerous myths surrounding this temple, the most prevalent tale harks back to a time when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati’s offspring, namely Lord Kartik and Lord Ganesha, were tasked with circumnavigating the cosmos seven times. Embarking on this mission, Lord Kartik undertook the formidable feat of encircling the universe, whereas Lord Ganesha completed his rounds around his parents, deeming them as his universe. Upon Lord Kartik’s return and discovery of Lord Ganesha’s accomplishment, which garnered the admiration of Lord Shiva, he was consumed by anger. According to the Puranas, an indignant Lord Kartik departed from Kailash, the abode of his parents, and arrived at Kronch Parvat, where the  Kartik Swami temple is now Situated, here Lord Kartikeya leaves his skeleton part of his body and you can see it in the temple.

Kartik swami is also a good destination for astro tours as the sky is very clear and dark here, in the starting point of the temple trek, there is a observatory where you can see celestial show
