When Chardham Yatra opens in 2013

Chardham Yatra of Uttaranchal will be starting from 11th May 2013 this year. Millions of people visit Chardham circuit from May to November every year and preparation of Yatra has already been started and many travel agents are offering various packages & group departures from Delhi & Haridwar for this sacred journey.

The temples of Chardham circuit of Uttaranchal are namely Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath & Badrinath and are considered one of the most sacred places of Hindu devotees. Earlier Chardham of Uttaranchal use to call “Chota Chardham” but due to increasing popularity, now this circuit is called Chardham. Though the original Chardham Temples are located at Badrinath Ji in Uttrakhand, Jagannath-Puri in Orissa, Dwarka Ji in Gujrat & Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu (Chennai) but among the all four dhams, Badrinath Ji in Uttrakhand is considered as one of the most important dham.

It is believed that a Hindu devotee should visit to Chardham circuit once in a life. So that he/she can be freed from his/her all past sins as according to myth one can be blessed with extreme power of GOD and  find great peace of mind in naturally blessed environment.

Due to religious importance of Uttranchal’s Chardham circuit, numbers of devotees increasing every year but facilities are still limited, though infrastructure of this circuit has been changed drastically in recent years but due to remote valley and hilly area no such big hotels/wide roads cannot be made. Most of the time temples of this circuit disappear in snow and temperature is also remain very cold though out the year which is below to live the normal life. It is really difficult to construct/build anything in this kind of temperature. 

Lots of people love to visit this circuit by their own but it is really difficult to get accommodation/food in this sector on last minute and by result they have to face so many difficulties. Due to limited services, it is always better to find reliable travel agent/tour operator to book your Yatra for this circuit. By taking package through any Travel company, one can reduce the travel expenses by joining various group tours and will get good accommodation according to their budget and their choice of meals and can also get well planned tours which are very difficult to plan for first time traveler and even for the repeater clients as there is no good phone connections/ internet connections/ transport arrangements but travel agents can manager everything well in advance upon request of clients.

This days many travel agents are offering various packages for Chardham Yatra from Delhi and Haridwar in reasonable price where they are offering fixed departure group tours including neat & clean accommodation, hygienic meals, and transportation by luxury vehicles with other necessary arrangements and tailor made private/family tours. So book your trip now as most of the hotels are already sold out during the month of May and hurry up before the entire dates will be sold out for this sacred journey.
