Garhwal Chardham Jeep Safari Tour

Garhwal Chardham Jeep Safari Tour

The sacred pilgrimage that is performed at four different destinations in Garhwal region of Uttarakhand i.e Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath holds immense significance in the Hindu culture. The Chardham Yatra, as it is popularly called, is an arduous journey that not only requires determination but only physical strength. Each sacred Dham or destination is nestled in the lap of Himalaya, where adventurous road condition, unpredictable weather and insufficient basic amenities are today’s challenge for this safari. Despite the difficult situations, pilgrims not only manage to perform the pilgrimage but also promise to return next year to seek the blessing. Indeed this Chardham Yatra is the reflection of strong faith of the devotees and even more stronger force of nature. One might call it a spiritual journey but surprisingly, the pilgrimage has been performed by many historians, archeologists and naturalists only to discover the several other important aspects of it.
