Gangotri Pilgrimage

Hindu Pilgrimage | Chaar Dham

Bhairon Ghati

Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath are collectively known as the "Chaar Dham". Gangotri, Yamunotri are origins of holy rivers Ganga and Yamuna where as Kedarnath and Badrinath are one of the holiest places of worship for Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu devotees respectively.

All Chaar Dhams lie in different corners of Garhwal region and are generally done as part of what's termed as Chaar Dham circuit itineraries. These itineraries typically are ex-Haridwar or Ex-Delhi.

Gangotri (295 kms from Haridwar) is the origin of the holy river Ganga and therefore very significant Hindu Pilgrimage.

Typically only Gangotri itinerary guests stay at Uttarkashi or Harsil and from there Gangotri can be approached.

Guests looking to trek to Gaumukh glacier from where Ganga originates, take a night halt at Bhojbasa.

Stay Duration: 2 nights ex-Haridwar Season-May– Oct
