Holiday Destination: Chardham Yatra

The Char Dham is also known as the Dev Bhumi; which literally means the dwelling of the gods. Hindus take the char dham yatra to Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamunotri and Gangotri for tranquility of mind, body and spirit. These places provide the perfect environment where the god & the transcendent seem to coexist. Many even believe that taking a trip to these dham sites will wash away their lifetime sins.

Located in the laps of Himalayas, India's four most revered sacred places include Yamunotri, Gangotri, Sri Kedarnathji and Sri Badrinathji. The Chardham yatra is undertaken from the west to the east. Thus, the yatra starts from Yamunotri, then proceeding to Gangotri and finally to Kedarnath and Badrinath. Nature in its entire splendor will leave an experience that will stay with your behind. Million peoples visit Char Dham from India and abroad every Year in search of peace of mind. Himalayas are famous for pilgrimages and also considered as the land of Gods.

As the four famous destinations of Char Dham Yatra are Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri, there is no dearth of travel operators, who give you an opportunity to enjoy every nook and corner. In fact, that is what makes this tour all the more significant and worthwhile from India travel point of view.  No doubt, that it forms the best Indian tour. As Kedarnath is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Badrinath is largely associated with Lord Vishnu, Yamunotri to Goddess Yamuna and Gangotri is believed to be an inevitable part of the Goddess Ganga.

If we talk about the Kedarnath, we find that it is dedicated to Lord Shiva. As there is a belief that Lord Shiva is the creator of the world, there is no dearth of opportunities where tourists can interact with the Hindu way of life through this tour. In fact, that is what makes it all the more significant and worthwhile.

The altitude at which Kedarnath is situated stands at the 3,584 meters above sea level in Uttarakhand. Adi Shankaracharya built the Kedarnath temple, which is very popular in the world. Consequently, 'Samadhi' of Adi Shankaracharya is found when a traveler takes a close visit to this dham.

Badrinath is yet another place to reckon with in the line of Char dhams. One of the most revered places of Hindu pilgrimages, it is one of the most vital places of Hindu worship. In fact, that is what makes it all the more significant and worthwhile. Badrinath temple is devoted to Lord Vishnu and that is what makes all the more popular in the world. There is Badrinath temple on the charts, which is divided in three parts i.e. 'Sabha Mandap',  'Darshan Mandap', and 'Garbha Griha'.

Next comes the Gangotri, which is also one of the most important places when it comes to Char Dham Yatra pilgrimage destinations. If we go by the legends, we find that the holy river Ganga touched the earth initially at Gangotri. In fact, that is what makes this place more worshiped than any other place.

Following is the Yamunotri, which constitutes the last part of the Char Dham Yatra. Yamunotri is the source of Yamuna river and that is where people are simply mesmerized with its bountiful of joy. In fact, that is what makes the Uttarakhand all the more beautiful. According to a legend, Yamunotri was the home of Adit Muni, one of the ancient saints.

Best Time to Visit Char Dham:
The best time to undertake the “Char Dham Yatra” is between the months of May and October. During this part of the year, the weather is clear and a bit warm. Winters should be avoided as these sites being situated in the Garhwal Himalayas, are prone to be hit by heavy snowstorm. Snow fall can also lead to blockage of roads and passages. Monsoons are strict no-no as this is the time for landslides, which interrupt the journey for several days.


Facts About Char Dham:
The Yamunotri is located at an altitude of 3,235m whereas Gangotri is at an altitude of 3,200m, Kedarnath at 3,581 m and lastly Badrinath at a height of 3,133m.

Today, the Char Dham sees upwards of 250,000 unique visitors in an average pilgrimage season, which lasts from approximately April 20 until Diwali (sometime in November). The season is heaviest in the two-month period before the monsoon.

The climate is more or less cold throughout the year but in winter i.e. from December to March the temperature is Subzero, which is snow bound. While in summer the temperature is bearable. Rainfall is around 1,460 mm throughout the year. The best season to visit is between May and October for all the Char Dham Yatra/Tour. If you are planning your trip in the month of May you require heavy woolen clothes, in September light woolens will do but in October - November you require really heavy woolens to protect you from freezing cold.



Once the rains come (sometime in late July), travel is extremely dangerous: extensive road building has critically destabilized the rocks, and fatal landslides and bus/jeep accidents are a regular yearly occurrence, with mortality rates for a season often surpassing 200. Despite the danger, pilgrims do continue to visit the Char Dham yatra/tour in the monsoon period, as well as after the rains end.
