Places to visit in During Chardham Yatra

Badrinath Dham

Badrinath is a Hindu holy town located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, India. It is one of the four major dhams or pilgrimage destinations for Hindus, the other three being Haridwar, Varanasi and Kedarnath.

Kedarnath Dham Temple

Kedarnath is a town in the Garhwal Himalayas and a major Hindu pilgrimage centre. It is one of the four places in India’s Chardham pilgrimage, along with Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Kedarnath is located at an elevation of 3,584 metres (11,755 feet) above sea level. The temple was dedicated to Shiva by Shakti Peetha (Shiva’s consort Parvati), who took birth as Goddess Durga.

Gangotri Dham Temple

Gangotri is the source of river Ganga. It is a village in Uttarkashi district in the Garhwal region of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The place has been attracting pilgrims since ancient times for its religious significance and beauty.

Yamunotri Dham Temple

Yamunotri is situated at an altitude of 3,293 metres in the Garhwal Himalayas, Yamunotri is the source of the Yamuna River. The shrine of Yamunotri is a popular pilgrimage destination for Hindus, who believe that a bath in the sacred river will absolve them of their sins. The shrine is only accessible by a difficult trek from Hanuman Chatti, which takes around five to six hours. The journey is worth it though, as Yamunotri is a stunningly beautiful place, with verdant forests, gushing rivers and snow-capped mountains.

Opening and closing time of Chardham Yatra

The Chardham circuit typically opens in April and closes in early November, although the exact dates may vary from year to year. Once the government of Uttarakhand announces the opening and closing dates, you can start looking for Chardham packages with various online travel agencies (OTAs). During the winter months, the deities at each of the shrines are moved to their winter abodes: Ukhimath for Kedarnath, Joshimath for Badrinath, Mukhba for Gangotri and Kharsali for Yamunotri. These winter abodes remain open throughout the year, so you can visit them at any time.

Important points to be kept in mind before visiting Chardham

  • Make sure to note the opening and closing dates of the Chardham yatra announced by the Uttarakhand government every year.
  • At most places, you will need to cover your head and take off your shoes. Since these are places of religious importance to Hindus, you will need to show respect.
  • Do not litter on your trip, and make sure you maintain the sanctity of remote locations by keeping them clean.
  • If you are visiting the area between October and November, make sure to pack plenty of warm, woolen clothing as the cold can be quite intense, especially after sundown. However, it’s always a good idea to dress in layers no matter what time of year you visit.
  • Be sure to come prepared with sunscreen, water, sunglasses and a hat as the sun can be very strong, especially in the hills.
  • Make sure you have a medical kit with you at all times, complete with antiseptic creams, painkillers, and medicine for fever and common colds. – Carry energy- boosting snacks like granola bars to keep you going.
  • Some places might not allow photography, so be respectful and avoid taking pictures when asked not to.
  • Start doing some warm-up exercises a month before your trip so you’re physically prepared for any hikes or steep climbs you might encounter.
  • Keep your camera and phones sufficiently charged, carry your powerbanks as some remote regions might not have regular electricity.
  • Avoid picking the monsoon months for your visit to the Chardham as the slopes and roads can be quite treacherous, with landslides quite common at this time of the year.
  • You need to book your hotel/guesthouse stays well ahead as the tourist season sees a huge influx of tourists, making the availability of accommodation scarce.
  • On a Chardham yatra, you are not allowed to eat non-vegetarian food or even drink alcohol.
