Brahmins from Kedarnath reach Vasukital barefoot to take Brahmakamal. After returning to KedarnathDham, they are offered at the feet of Bholenath. July-August is the best time to see the Brahmakamal gardens in Vasuki Tal.
When the journey to KedarnathDham begins, thousands of devotees who come on the yatra also go from Kedarnath to see Vasuki Taal.
