NIM volunteers, labourers: Unsung heroes of Kedarnath reconstruction केदारनाथ में कमाल करते निम कार्यकर्ता

It has been almost three years since the Kedar Valley was badly devastated by floods and heavy rains, killings thousands of pilgrims and locals. Since then, rehabilitation and reconstruction work has continued.

One organisation that has undertaken the task of rebuilding Kedarpuri or the area surrounding the Kedarnath shrine is Uttarakashi-based Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM). Under the leadership of its Principal, Colonel Ajay Kothiyal, and guidance of Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat, NIM volunteers have been rebuilding and transforming the Kedarnath shrine and providing facilities to pilgrims and visitors.

Uttarakhand Panorama presents to you a compilation of pictures that showcases how NIM volunteers and workers have been tirelessly working in the tough and inhospitable terrain, trying to bring Kedarpuri to its original glory…
