Ransi is the starting point for the arduous 17 km trek to Madhyamaheshwar. The track is well marked and easy to follow.

One can drive upto Ransi. A bus runs at 12 noon from Gopeshwar to reach Ukhimath around 4 pm. From there another bus or shared taxis can take you to Ransi. Similar bus runs from Gupt Kashi to Ukhimath in the morning. If you don't have your own transport, it is better to inquire before-hand about the bus timings.

Trek from Ransi to Gaundhar is 6 km and mostly flat. Bantoli is another 1 km away. Nanu is about 4 km Bantoli. Final stretch from Nanu to Madhyamaheshwar is 6 km, but quite steep.

Apart from the above mentioned places, there are other small dhabas where one can stay or have food.

The flora on the route is amazing and so is the fauna. We see butterflies, mountain goats, lizards, sheep, guard dogs, monkeys, several birds etc. The cute village kids seemed to be living their lives to the fullest.

The temple itself is set against a very beautiful backdrop of sloping hills and meadows. Another small trek to Budha Maheshwar is recommended for those who want to see a nice sunrise.

It is one of the panch Kedar's!

Extremely beautiful and spiritual place to visit. 18 km of tough trek with awesome waterfalls, river confluence and mountain peaks visible on the entire route.
Horses are the other option for those who can't trek long.
A foreigner from California told me that he has visited lots of places like these in US but the spiritual vibration as available here are not anywhere in world.
He stayed there for 5-6 days.

From Ransi to Gaundaar is a 7km trek of which first 2kms are on a level kuccha road and the next 5kms are a downhill easy trek, though the last part is a bit of a climb. Gaundaar has quite a few lodges. It is situated near the river madhganga. From here Banatoli is situated at a distance of 1 km (30mins) and the climb is semi steep. Banatoli is situated at the confluence of madhganga and banatoli ganga, and is an ideal place for camping. It has a guest house. There is another guest house 500ms up the road. From here Khadara (2100m) is a 2km steep climb and takes about 1hr to reach. There are lodges here. The climb to Nanu (2360m) is very steep and 2kms was covered in about 45mins. Nanu to Moukhom is also a steep climb (one and a half km in 45mins) and Moukhom to Koon is steep climb and 1km is covered in about 45mins. Lodges are available at Nanu, Moukhom and Koon. These are the places to stay if you get late in the evening because the next 4kms are through dense forests and will take around one and a half to 2 hrs. Koon to Madmaheshwar (3289 m) is a beautiful trek with pink and purple coloured rhododendron blossoms (mid april to late may) on both the sides of the road. Infact the trek is not a famous There ia mandir seva samiti guest house and other lodges here. The mandir guest house provides common bathroom facility in the complex. Other lodges do not provide this facility. Boodha madmaheshwar (3500m) is a trek of about 1km steep climb. Boodha madmaheshwar is a meadow with a shiva statue and few kunds at the top of the hill. The summer season is ideal for bird watchers (collared blackbird, varieties of rose finches, minivets, woodpeckers and thrushes were easily spotted). There is an ancient Rakeshwari temple situated at Ransi run by Bhatt purohits.
Some important points:
1) Shared taxis end and start at Khadrakhaal. They usually don’t run after 12 noon to 1 pm. After this the taxi has to be booked.
2) Rooms with attached toilet facilities are not available in Khadarakhal, Nanu, Moukhom, Koon and Madmaheshwar.
3) Ideal trekking months are mid April to June and October to November. But if you want to see the colorful flowers and the beauty of meadows the ideal months are late July to mid September. The lodges are open from mid April (few days prior to opening of kapaats of the Madmaheshwar temple) to November. So if you are venturing beyond Gaundar and Banatoli between December to April you need to enquire at Gaundar.
4) If you are a photographer and want to catch reflection of peaks in kunds of Boodha madmaheshwar, the ideal time is November as the kunds are filled with water and the skies are clear.
5) In summers carry a warm jacket and beyond monsoon months always carry heavy woolens.
6) The time given to cover various distances may vary according to individuals trekking speed and age. So do not focus too much on destination and time taken to reach there, rather enjoy the beauty of trek.
P.S: In yatra season there is an acute shortage of buses from Rishikesh onwards. Take shared taxis.

The Madmaheshwar Temple is one of the Panch kedar in uttarakhad. The Trek route to Madmaheshwar is quite difficult and No rush of Pilgrimage as comapre to kedarnath . Only few people from outside the Uttarakhand visited here. Best place for pilgrimage and trekkers .
