Chardham (literally meaning four abodes of God) Yatra is one of the most sacred spiritual tours for the followers of Hindu religion in India. It covers four glorious shrines of India that i.e. Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and the Badrinath Dham (i.e. abode). All Dhams are located amongst the astonishing Great Himalayan peaks of Uttarakhand. The Chardhams reflect thousands years old legends and history by beholding these sacred shrines at different districts namely Uttarkashi, Chamoli and Rudraprayag on the splendid Garhwal hills of Uttarakhand. This exalted trip was personally followed in 8th Century by the great reformer and philosopher Adi Shankaracharya.
