Kedarnath is divided into 7 sectors, to be cleaned separately

Dehradun: To keep the temple premises and trek route clean, Kedarnath Dham has been divided into seven sectors. A supervisor and a nodal officer have been posted at each sector to keep an eye on the progress there. Also, wet and dry waste will be separated at Kedarnath itself, before being moved to a dumping zone. The decisions were announced by state tourism minister Satpal Maharaj in a meeting with state officials on Saturday. The minister also appealed to pilgrims coming to Uttarakhand for the Char Dahm to maintain cleanliness.
A total of 323 toilets have been built around the temple premises and on the trek route, with around 60 to 70 toilets constructed at major halts, it was said at the meeting. Also, challans have been issued to 1,100 shopkeepers at Kedarnath for littering.
"We have asked authorities to initiate strict action against those throwing garbage. We are trying to spread the message of cleanliness among devotees as well, through various media channels, campaigns, and loudspeakers at the spot," the minister added. Expressing concern over mules being exploited, Satpal Maharaj directed the Rudraprayag district magistrate to conduct health screenings for equines on lines on health screening of pilgrims. As reported, mules on the Kedarnath trek route were found to be beaten, fed steroids, and over-worked to make as many trips as possible amid an unprecedented pilgrim rush to Char Dham this year. There were also reports of mules dropping dead of exhaustion and being tossed into the river.
