• Get your travel documents ready, if you’re a foreigner. Your Visa, passport and ID proof and other travel documents should be updated and valid.

• When parking the vehicle, apply the hand breaks. Be sure it is technically fit for mountainous journey.
• While trekking, keep a normal pace. Yatris are advised to carry a pain reliever and a small first-aid kit.
• In most of the areas, the climate is extremely cool, especially at night. So you better carry some woolen clothes and other attires to keep you warm.
• Respect the local traditions & cultures
• Be in queue and wait for your turn calmly
• Don’t opt for shortcut ways when trekking to the temple. It can be dangerous.
• Don’t leave your group. Help your co-pilgrim in case he feels need of it. Allow each one to have necessary rest.
• Don’t visit to prohibited areas. Please follow the instructions issued by Yatra administration to make your journey safe and pleasurable.
• Don’t fall in strong argument with locals as well as the co-pilgrims. Remember that you’re on a religious journey, so enjoy it peacefully. Ask for permission before photography.
