Rudraprayag (Uttarakhand), Mar 29 (PTI) Inclement weather coupled with fresh intermittent snowfall over the past few days is hampering the ongoing preparations for the Char Dham yatra with the trek route to Kedarnath blocked by snow, officials said on Wednesday.

With less than a month to go for the opening of portals of Kedarnath on April 25, it is causing concern among authorities, they said.

Snow has once again accumulated along the trek route to the Himalayan temple near Kuber and Bhainro blocking it, officials said. Rudraprayag District Magistrate Mayur Dikshit has asked officials to complete all preparations latest by April 15.
