Sacred Journeys Made Simple with Char Dham Yatra Packages at Monk Travels
The Char Dham Yatra is a once-in-a-lifetime fantasy come true for every Hindu devotee. Along with the four most revered locations in India—Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri—Chardham is one of the country’s holiest sites. It is said that participating in the Chardham yatra can rid you of all of your sins and set you free from the cycle of reincarnation.
With its captivating beauty and profound spirituality, the Chardham Yatra is well known for letting you spend some alone time reflecting while taking in the snow-covered Himalayas. There are several other Chardham yatra places to visit in addition to these temples.
Har ki Pauri and Ganga Aati
This is thought to be the exact location when the Ganges enters the plains and exits the mountains. You will notice what is thought to be Lord Vishnu’s footprint etched on a wall. The translation of Har Ki Pauri is ‘Steps to Lord Shiva’. It is said that a bath in the Ganges river here can wipe away your sins. A must-see location in Haridwar.
In Mussoorie, Kempty Falls is a worthwhile tourist destination. The waterfall has tiers that you can reach by climbing the stairs. Lower Fall and Upper Fall are Kempty’s two main waterfalls. A man-made pond is available for boating as well. Nature enthusiasts and photographers will be delighted by the stunning Kempty Falls, which is encircled by towering rock cliffs and rich vegetation. It’s the most interesting location for a picnic or a great day trip from Mussoorie.
One of the key draws close to the main temple is Surya Kund at Yamunotri, which is also one of the most visited places. The purpose of every tourist’s visit is to honor Yamuna’s father, the sun. After a long journey, travelers can find respite at Surya Kund, a thermal hot water spring with 88 degrees that also has medical properties. A dip in the water can treat joint and skin ailments.
On the banks of the Bhagirathi River is Uttarkashi. This is the location of Lord Vishwanath’s Temple and the enormous iron trident. Some of the other significant temples in the region are dedicated to Ekadashi Rudra, Bhairav, Gyaneshwar, and Goddess Kuteti Devi. It is imperative that you make time to visit Uttarkashi during the Char Dham Yatra.
Walking distance from the Gangotri temple to Harsil, one of the best-preserved gems in the Himalayas, is about twenty-five minutes. The towering, lush green trees edge the snow-capped mountains. Once the Gangotri main gate is closed, the goddess Ganga’s idol is transferred to this location within the temple, and lodging is also available in Harsil. One of the most popular tourist spots along the Chardham Yatra is this.
The Vishwanath Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva and situated in the Mandakini River Valley of the Northern Himalayas, is the reason Guptkashi is well-known. You will learn about this incredible location while on the Char Dham Yatra.
One of the four (char) dhams in India is the most revered, and that is Badrinath. This temple is located beneath the 3,133-meter-tall nilkantha peak, between the nar and narayan mountain ranges. Vishal badri, or vishnu pilgrimages, is the most well-known of the five badries. In addition to visiting Bhim Pul, Mata Murty Temple, and the well-known Vyas Gufa, you can take a bath in Tapt Kund.
