The chardham itinerary usually follows an east to west direction. The Holy Himalayas up in the misty heights of the majestic Garhwal Himalayas that adorn the magnificent state of Uttaranchal, awaits a rejuvenating spiritual experience for the devout.
The tour would take you to the four majestic abodes of God, which are strategically located in India’s four directions – the east, south, west, and north. Each of these four spots makes a perfect square in the triangular land of India. These places also serve as the epicenter of all of India’s religious activities. The Chardham Tour is one of the foremost offerings of India travel. This tour is based on India’s core religion, Hinduism. The chardham tour packages would take you to these scared places, more particularly the Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath.
The pilgrimage would normally start from Yamunotri on the Himalayas. Then it will proceed to Gangotri towards Kedarnath and would end in Badrinath. Many devotees from the world over participate in the char dham of India. The holy journey commences during the summer, which is also the peak season for Indian travel. But more than spiritual healing, the mountainous views of the tour are the perfect setting for everyone who wants to experience a different type of relaxation. It was believed that those who were in the pilgrimage are assured to experience eternal bliss.
