The mighty range of Himalayas is the abode of several temples, caves and shrines. With the holy rivers like the Ganga and the Yamuna in its cusps, it is no wonder that the mountain is brimming with sacred Hindu sites. The four holy sites of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath are also nestled in the higher slopes of Himalayas. They are incredibly auspicious and extremely popular. Collectively, they are denoted as the chardham or the four dhams or ‘holy sites’.

Chardham yatra packages are available both online and offline. Internet facilities have made it convenient for busy people to book tours without having to waste any time or without having to run from pillar to post. Now, all the major travel agents and all reputed tour operators run their own official websites. They have brought their whole bouquet of packages and deals right on your computer screen. So, if you are desirous of heading for Chardham yatra 2013 later this year, then you can easily book a package for yourself. It would be advisable to make an advance booking to avail the best prices and for various other reasons.

In this context, you must get acquainted with a major fact. From the point of view of religious significance, it is vital to make the trip in the right order.

Here is a brief look at each of the dham in the recommended sequence:

i. Yamunotri: Yamunotri is the glacial source from where the holy river Yamuna originates. The dham or temple of Yamunotri must feature in your yatra at the top i.e. you must visit this dham before visiting the rest. On the auspicious Hindu date of Akshaya Tritiya, the temple is officially open for the pilgrims. It stays open till the month of October or November. During the winter and spring, the temple stays out of bound for climatic and religious reasons.

ii. Gangotri: Gangotri must be the next temple that you should visit. Gangotri is the source of birth for river Ganga and is another spiritual place which is sedate, serene and extremely holy. The Gangotri dham too opens during the date of Akshaya Tritiya and closes in October or November, depending on the Hindu calendar. The place is noted for the evening ‘aarti’ which is a sight to behold.

iii. Kedarnath: Kedarnath would be the 3rd stop in your Chardham yatra packages. The Kedarnath temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located at a height of over 3500 feet. After a tiring and challenging journey, when the pilgrims reach the steps of the temple, they feel rejuvenated and spiritually blessed. There are lots of mythological and legendary tales & hearsays associated with the place. For instance, it is a firm belief of many that dying at this place makes the person merge with the Shiva himself.

iv. Badrinath: Badrinath, the temple devoted to Lord Vishnu, is the fourth and final dham of the yatra. Another soulful place for meditation and worship, this dham would bring you to the conclusion of your trip.
