Chardham Yatra is a holy procession which takes place every year between the months of May and October. Devotees in large numbers make a visit to four most sacred pilgrimage sites in Utterakhand, despite of tough trekking paths and uncertain weather. These four religious sites are: Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotari and Yamunotari. Since all these places are situated amidst Himalaya Mountains, visiting to these sites is not an easy task.  However, Chardham yatra packages are offered by some reputed travel companies for the pilgrim’s convenience these packages are tailored for one’s individual needs and his set budget, end hence ensure a comfy travel with no stress at all.

When going on Chardham yatra, there are several points one should keep in mind. A few of them are:

•  Many people find them perplexed about the kind of attires they should carry on the yatra. Even though the Yatra takes place in summer, you must remember that the Himalaya region where the temples are situated remains cool year-round. At a high elevation, it is obvious to feel the shivering. So, all the travelers are suggested to pack woolens in good numbers.

•  Weather in this part of India is simply uncertain. You don’t know when you can encounter rain. So make sure you have some water proof attires to keep yourself dry. Since you would not find so many arrangements for stay en route, you better carrying rain-coats. For Women, saree is not a good option to wear.  Due to tough trekking routes, it will be difficult to manage in saree. Wearing simple, manageable attires like salwar or track suite is advised.
