ⓘ Chota Char Dham
The Chota Char Dham, is an important Hindu pilgrimage circuit on the under upgradation Chardham Road Highway and under construction Chota Char Dham Railway in the Indian Himalayas. Located in the Garhwal region of the state of Uttarakhand, the circuit consists of four sites - Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath. Badrinath is also one of the four destinations of the longer Char Dham from which the Chota Char Dham likely draws its name.
The annual char Dham Yatra resumed in may 2014, after remaining suspended after the start of the 2013 Uttarakhand floods. Attendance has improved due to active measures taken by the government of Uttarakhand.
AHA-AHA or Trij J. Julian and Gregorian calendars may marks the beginning of char Dham Yatra. Yatra usually closes within 2 days after Diwali, on the day of bhai-Dooj or bhai bij.
In addition, there are chances of roads due to heavy rainfall in late July and August. In may and June, tourists flock in large numbers. So, there is very little time, proposed for Darshan’. So, it is better to take char Dham Yatra in mid-may to July and from September to October.
