A Char Dham Yatra in Uttrakhand is an ultimate tour package to be gifted to the senior citizens. Synonymous to spiritual beliefs, cultural practices and age-old traditions, the tirth sthals, Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, are undoubtedly a paradise for seekers of inner peace. The mighty mountains, pristine woods, and hot water springs also showcase the beauty of Mother nature at its best.
Char Dham Yatra commences with a holy dip in sacred Ganga River at Har ki Pauri in Haridwar followed by Aarti and Puja at the Mandir. The divine journey includes Parikrama of the four abodes of Hindu Gods and Goddesses located at the sky-touching peaks of Himalayas. The traditional yatra route follows the Hindu Parikrama norm of moving from west to east, i.e., from Yamunotri to Gangotri to Kedarnath to Badrinath.
If a complete Char Dham Tour is difficult to conduct, there are options for Yamunotri-Gangotri Yatra or Kedarnath-Badrinath Yatra or only Kedarnath Yatra by Helicopter.
