Some Things Special About Chadham Yatra

Hello Friends, in today I will share you some information about Chadham Yatra which can be very useful in the future. Holy Chardham of Hindus located in India's Uttarakhand state. Due to being Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badratha, these are called Chardham. To go to this journey you must first know when this journey begins and how long it is going. The journey of Chardham was not turned on all the time because it was stopped for about 6 months because of snow in the winter. And sometimes it is also barred for a few days due to heavy rains in the rainy days. Now the question arises, how do you go? Where to go?

 So let us tell you that for this, you have to choose the Best ChardhamTour Operator in Haridwar. Here you will find many operators who will show you the Chardham. Here you can book a good company's best Chardham Tour Package in haridwar.
If I were to speak for myself, we had booked Chardham tour package from the Aananda Holidays. After you have booked the package in it, you will be free from the rest of the tension. They have good ones such as luxury buses, car rentals and many more. It also provides you the Best Chardham Helicopter Service if you are interested in it.

 Now the most important thing is to go for this trip, to keep in mind that there is a lot of cold over there because the height is high cold also increases, so you keep your warm clothes. Put both hot clothes to wear down and up. Because when the lower side goes upwards, the cold increases.

Because Chardham's journey takes a lot of time and this journey is too long. Sometimes, due to the traffic on the way, jam also takes place, smaller-heavy landslides also occur, the road gets jammed. So you should take some dry foods, fruits, chocolates, saline etc. to eat food. Be sure to keep a torch with you before going here, because the light goes on several times in the mountains, then this torch will be useful for you to climb or land. There is no fixed time for rains in the mountains, it often begins to rain after noon, so avoid a raincoat to avoid it.
Many people get vomited in the hilly way or they start hurting the head, if you have a fear of being clutched, then it is important that you take some medicines along with you like Paracetamol, Hajmola, Hing pill, orange pill etc.

Adventure Experience of Chardham Yatra
Traveling Chardham is the dream of every Hindu religionist. In Chardham yatra Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath come in, which are situated in Uttarakhand state of India. The journey of these four is called Chardham yatra. If I tell the truth then I am very happy in the four dham yatra. 10th June 2017 I went out for Chardham Tour. Whenever you go on a trip, you also have to know who is the best travel agent, So I also wanted to know who to choose the best tour operator for Chardham. There are many companies in Haridwar that can make your Chhatham travel journey pleasant. In it Google can help you completely. I also resorted to Google and searched the Best Chardham Tour Operator In Uttarakhand Only then did many result appear. I chose Anand Holidays because they offer you service from Delhi. This is also right for Delhi.

The beginning of our Chardham Yatra begins with Yamunotri Dham. Yamunotri is a very beautiful holy place in Uttarakhand. Temple of goddess Yamuna is the main attraction of Yamunotri. It is surrounded by hills all around. Temple of Yamunotri is mainly opened in May, which is open from October to November, because in the last month the ice is frozen. 
The best time to visit Yamunotri Dham is from May to October. It comes after Yamunotri. Distance from Haridwar to Yamunotri Dham is around 247 km. Before Haridwar, you will reach Ramsikeshwar and then Narendra Nagar, Chamba, Tihri, Dharasu, Badkot, Shyana Chatti, to reach Yamunotri. You can meet many beautiful views of Uttarakhand while going from here.

After the visit of Yamunotri Dham, Now the second number in the Charnham Yatra comes from Gangotri. We visit Gangotri Dham, its 228 km from Yamunotri. According to Hindu religion, the Ganges River originated from Gangotri Dham, because the Ganges River originates from the glacier named Gangotri. Gangotri is known for its ancient temples and religious significance. Gangotri temple opens in May and is closed in November. The right time to visit here is from May to November.      
When you go from Yamunotri to Gangotri, you can see Janki Bai Chatti, Badkot, Dharasu, Uttarkashi,Maneri, Lanka, Bheroghati here.

Now the third number in the Charnham Yatra comes from Kedaradham. Now we went out towards Kedaradham, after a long journey we reached Kedaradham. To reach Kedarnath, we reached Kedarnath base camp, from Haridwar via Rishikesh which was about 200 kilometers away.

Here we also went to Gaurikund which is 76 km from Rishikesh. From Gaurikund we went to Jangalchatti, which is about 4 km from Gaurikund, is at the distance. After that we reached Neencheli while going through Rambada. Neinchinai is about 11 km away from Gaurikund. Then we reached Kedarnath by walking a distance of 11 km from the bottom. Many companies also provide Kedarnath helicopter services in which Aananda Holidays offers you the best Chardham Helicopter service in Uttarakhand. The atmosphere here was really good and this is a very exciting place. We worshiped in the temple of Kedarnath. People visit Kedarnath from far away. There was sunlight in the day but the effect of the cold was visible, and as soon as the sun shone then I felt very cold as it often happens in winter.


After going through three dhams, the number comes in Badrinath. You can reach Badridham while going from Rishikesh to Devprayag, Srinagar, Rudraprayag, Karan Pryang, Camoli, Govindghat to go here. Among these two temples, there are many shrines of temples like Basudev temple, Joshimath temple,Dhyanbadri temple, Bhaviyabadri temple, Nrasingh temple,Urgamv temple etc. Badrinath is situated at an elevation of 3150 meters on the Himalayas. Due to the high altitude, it also drops too much ice.

My first experience for Char Dham Yatra with Gaumukh - with Aananda Holidays

Well it seems like only yesterday that I was in Haridwar but of course over a month has passed since I returned home.  But what an experience!
Firstly, it was so nice to meet you face to face!  Thank you for doing such a good job arranging my trip.  I am sure it was your care and attention to detail which allowed everything to happen just as planned – brilliant. 
Secondly, you asked if I would provide some feedback.  This was a trip of a lifetime for me.  I knew that if it was meant to be I would see Gomukh and, if not, well then it wasn’t meant to be.  I was so amazed and delighted when I found out Satish would be the guide for the trip - then I knew that all would be well, and it was.  Our driver Aditya was the best driver on those mountain roads and also in the city and our porter Ram knew the trek route like the back of his hand.  Everyone got on so well together.  I am full of gratitude to everyone – great little team Smile, perfect weather - it was like a dream come true.  10 out of 10.
All the accommodation was fabulous – Harsil especially the tented camp right on the river, Bhojawasa where the food was extraordinary, the beautiful Haveli Hari Ganga of course and the Park Plaza in Delhi.  The Country Style hotel I felt was a little impersonal compared to the rest of the accommodation, probably a bit bigger, but certainly in a great location for my trip.  The Yoga Niketan ashram I loved and I would like one day to return and spend some time there.  A friend from Brisbane stayed at the ashram on my recommendation in early June.  She’s still away but I am sure she would have enjoyed it.  The staff there are amazing.  The staff everywhere were amazing! 
I will happily recommend Aananda Holidays to anyone and everyone thinking of travelling in your direction. 
Back to reality here now but I would hope to be fortunate enough to visit your country again one of these days.  Thank you once again – I hope you are able one day to make this trip yourself – it is so very beautiful!
Best wishes to you

Travelling through the religious landscapes of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri will complete the sacred Chardham Yatra by hindu religious behaviours. Although these are the places included in this particular journey, people usually travel to Haridwar first, after which the Chardham yatra agents from Haridwar can book the required conveyance and journey facilities. In some of the places along the way, travellers can find staying and resting places, along with facilities for food and warmth.

  • Proper planning and itineraries will be helping in comfortable journey
Travel itinerary to the four sacred places of Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri should have proper planning and knowledge of the possible scenarios. Since Kedarnath and Yamunotri do not have road access, there is need to trek for some kilometres before reaching the temples. The remaining two destinations have roads leading up to the temple, thereby making it convenient for travelling in the hired vehicles.
  • Helping with plenty of arrangements when guides and travel agents are checked out
During trekking up to Kedarnath and Yamunotri, people should get their rates straight up, with some arrangements done for overnight stay if required. If the travel agents are hired from Haridwar, it is best option as they can provide the Chardham tours under package system. Included in this package will be a host of trips and itineraries, thereby making the travel and visit to the temples convenient. In these trips, there will be need to carry certain essential and there will be requirements of accessories like oxygen or drinking water.
