With the beginning of April Month, snow starts clearing at the foothills of Himalayas. With the weather conditions start changing, Hindu Pilgrimages start flocking to the Four Ancient Temples or Char Dham located high up in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. These temples are the spiritual source of Rivers that include Yamuna at Yamunotri, Ganges at the Gangotri, The Mandakini at Kedarnath and Alaknanda at Badrinath. This religious and sacred journey is also called as Chhota Char Dham – the most preferred and a must to travel place for Hindus once in life.

Best Time of Char Dham Yatra in Uttarakhand

This sacred journey starts in the month of April or early May and continues till November. May and June are counted as the peak time of exploring these destinations; while people prefer to avoid visiting places from July to September due to the fear of heavy rain and land sliding.

How to Reach Char Dham Yatra Tour?

It is not easy trip. It is full of adventure and risk too. Only Two out of four destinations are easily accessible by the vehicle that includes Badrinath and Gangotri. Yamunotri and Kedarnath are done through trekking routes – full of adventure. Trek to Kedarnath is the lengthiest of all that takes 10 to 12 days to visit all the temples. You can also cover all the destinations in two to three days by Helicopter.

Badrinath and Gangotri are directly reachable by road from Haridwar and Rishikesh along with Kotdwar and Dehradun. Yamunotri is accessible through trek routes that start from Janki Chatti at the distance of 225 km from Rishikesh; while Kedarnath starts from 207 km from Rishikesh at a place called Gaurikund. Planning to book a package for Hindu pilgrimage tour is not a wrong decision to make.
