Latest Travel Guidelines of Char Dham Yatra 2024

Chardham Yatra is a highly revered Hindu pilgrimage that involves visiting four holy shrines located in the Uttarakhand state of India. The four shrines are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, and they are collectively known as the Chardham.

The journey to these four holy shrines is challenging, and it involves trekking through steep hills, dense forests, and crossing rivers. However, despite the physical challenges, the Chardham Yatra is a deeply spiritual and enriching experience for devotees. The scenic beauty of the Himalayas, the serene atmosphere of the shrines, and the rituals performed at each shrine add to the overall spiritual experience.

The Chardham Yatra is usually undertaken from April to November, as during the winter months, the roads leading to these shrines are closed due to heavy snowfall. The opening dates for the four temples in 2024 are as follows:
