Nicknamed ‘Land of the Gods’, Uttarakhand does justice to that moniker as it is home to some of the most revered temples and shrines in Hinduism. Most famous of all are the Chota Char Dham that comprises of Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Every year, more than 250,000 pilgrims visit Char Dham from various parts of India.
There are several tour operators that offer Char Dham Yatra packages which include visit to the Char Dham (Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath) as well as accommodation and transportation. The tour packages listed here caters to every class of pilgrims and tourists. Some tour operators can also arrange for helicopter tours for Char Dham Yatra.
As per the Hindu tradition and way of life, partaking in a pilgrimage (Teerth Yatra) is one of the five duties a human being must complete in his lifetime. A visit to the sacred Char Dham washes away all sins and opens doors for ‘Moksha’ or liberation. Every human being should consider visiting these four holy places at least once in their lifetime.
