The four shrines at the foothills of the Himalayan mountains- Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri are collectively known as the Chardham. Keen to be cleansed from any sins and liberated from the cycle of birth and death or just to appreciate the beauty, hundreds and thousands of pilgrims undertake this yatra. All the four shrines attract visitors during the yatra season between April- May and October-November. Apart from the religious beliefs, these dhams are majestic mirroring the old Indian culture, traditions and ethos. The Himalayan mountains standing tall add to the picturesque beauty and perfect memory of the Chardhams.
Just as the popular saying goes "there is no gain without pain", the Chardham yatra is not an easy one. While the Badrinath and Gangotri are both directly reachable by road from Haridwar, Rishikesh, Kotdwar and Dehradun, to reach Yamnotri, one needs to start trekking from Janki Chatti, 225 kms from Rishikesh. Also, 207 kms from Rishikesh is Gaurikund from where the trek begins for Kedarnath. The monsoon time July- September is not good for the yatra as the rains make the route slippery, hence it is only advisable to travel in other months.
