I was there on 10.5.2011. Rs.1200 for pony charges. Palki was Rs.4000. First they measure the person's weight. If the weight is above 90 kgs. Rs.100 will be extra. Minimum 3 1/2 hour one way. Pony is not advisable for above 65 years. If they can there is no problem. It is jolly ride for a while climbing but in return we will be eager to get down shortly. It is a nice trip every body should avail this oppotunity.

As answered by Alumnitrek, it depends on supply-demand ratio; even though there is a fixed temple-committee rate. When we went there last year, we trekked the onward journey. On the return journey, we were supposed to reach Haridwar the same day. So in the early morning, we (2 of us) asked for horses after trekking for 1 km from Kedarnath temple. One person demanded Rs 1000/- each but after some distance, another person demanded just Rs 300/- each. So it is totally unpredictable.

Had Gaurikund to Kedar trek three times. Never took pony or pittoo or palki. The rates can not be anticipated in advance. There is hectic bargaining inspite of rates fixed by temple committee. The rates also vary depending on at which point you hire. As you go higher so also the rates. Best is to hire from Gaurikund itself.
