Chardham Yatra Booking and Weather Challenges in June

Chardham Yatra

Uttarakhand is a state of India which is famous for its religious importance among devotees and natural beauty among tourists. Uttarakhand is also known as a land of Gods and Devo ki Bhoomi in Hindi. Chardham Yatra of Uttarakhand is also known as Chota Chardham Yatra; in this Yatra, you will be visiting 4 temples of Uttarakhand named Badrinath Dham, Kedarnath Dham, Gangotri Dham, and Yamunotri Dham. All of us are very well aware of all 4 Dhams of Uttarakhand and Chardham Yatra of Uttarakhand. But we shall talk about Chardham Yatra in detail; the details will include the history of Chardham Yatra, the mythology behind Yatra and about the temples.

It has been said as per our ancestors and old scriptures that the starting of Chardham Yatra was done by Pandavas who were the hero of Mahabharat time. According to Pandavas, the people who will complete the Chardham Yatra at least once in their life will be free from the stage of reincarnation and will directly go to heaven. No one exactly knows when the yatra was actually started but in today’s date, it is one of the most famous religious journeys of India.

The Yatra starts from Yamunotri Dham followed by Gangotri Dham and after Gangotri Dham, your journey moves forward with the Darshan of Kedarnath Dham and Ends at Badrinath Dham which is said to be the most valued Dham among all four Dhams. The Yatra generally starts in April and ends in the month of November. In winters due to harsh weather conditions, the Yatra is being stopped and again started next year at the same time.

Chardham Yatra Uttarakhand is famous among the pilgrims with another name too which is Chota Chardham Yatra. In four Dhams of Uttarakhand, Badrinath Dham is the only one which is also a part of the main Chardham Yatra of India.
