Yamunotri is an highly significant destination among the four Hindu shrines that constitute the Chardham Yatra in the state of Uttarakhand.

Description

A must on every Hindu pilgrim's itinerary, Yamunotri is an highly significant destination among the four Hindu shrines that constitute the Chardham Yatra in the state of Uttarakhand. It is the source of the holy river Yamuna and can be reached from popular towns like Rishikesh, Haridwar or Dehradun. The temple at Yamunotri is at a distance of 6 km from Hanuman Chatti, a small town in the Garhwal Himalayas. Visitors can cover this stretch either by taking a pony/ horse ride or by hiring palanquins. The Yamunotri shrine is also quite close to the Indo-Chinese border.

Gangotri is located at a distance of 300 km from Dehradun in the state of Uttarakhand. The ideal time to pay a visit here is between the months of April and November while the temple remains open for devotees between May and November. Summers are cool and winters are freezing cold. If you are travelling here in winter, do remember to be equipped with necessary clothings. It is advisable not to travel to Gangotri during monsoon months to avoid landslides.
Between the months of May and October, Yamunotri invites hordes of tourists as well as pilgrims from across the globe. The sacred place finds its mention and has an important place in the Hindu mythology. Hindus believe that it is the site where resided the ancient sage named Asit Muni. Hot springs closely located from Yamunotri are a must-see for every visitor. The hot water of the springs is also used by devotees to prepare rice and potatoes to be offered at the Yamunotri shrine. Not only with devotees and pilgrims, Yamunotri also invites an equal number of trekking enthusiasts from all over. A trekking tour to Yamunotri is wonderfully complemented by picturesque scenery including rugged peaks, gurgling streams and dense alpine forests. Trekkers can first undertake a journey to Hanumanchatti and then they can set off on a 13-km-long trek up to the pilgrimage site of Yamunotri. The trekking route from Dodital to Yamunotri is much popular with adventure seekers.

HISTORY OF YAMUNOTRI

According to the legend ancient sage Asit Muni had his hermitage here. All his life, he bathed daily both in Ganga and Yamuna. Unable to go to Gangotri during his old age, a stream of Ganga appeared opposite Yamunotri for him. The temple and the place opens every year on the auspicious day of the akshya-tritya, which generally falls during the last week of April, or the first week of May. The temple always closes on the sacred day of Diwali mid- Oct. - 1st week of Nov., with a brief ceremony, the temple staff return to their villages and for the rest of the time the valley is gripped in no man silence and covered with white sheet of snow. With melting of snow next summer, temple re-opens to blissful happiness of thousands of visitors again. "The daughter of the Sun god, Surya and consciousness, Sangya the birth place of the Yamuna is the Champasar Glacier (4421 m) just below the Banderpoonch mountain. The mountain adjacent to the river source is dedicated to her father, and is called Kalinda Parvat. Kalinda being another name of Surya. Yamuna is known for her frivolousness, a trait that she developed because as per a common story - Yamuna's mother could never make eye contact with her dazzling husband.

My wife and I wanted to tour the religious places and also add a bit of adventure in a tour. As I am a documentary photographer it was essential that we get some good stories. We researched and finally settled for a tour with Taxi services Rishikesh. They arranged the itinerary as we wanted which was to pick us up from Delhi Airport and drop us back in Delhi at the end of the tour. In between visiting Hardwar, Rishikesh, Jim Corbett National Park, Finally Agra and Mathura in time for the Holi. The whole trip went without any problems. The driver who also served as a guide was very helpful and professional. Though some of the distances were long he managed very well the whole tour very well indeed. Plenty to see in Hardwar and Rishikesh. Jim Corbett was a bit of a disappointment as we only saw a tiger from a distance. But that is the nature of national parks. Taj Mahal is always a delight and Holi in Mathura was an experience not to be missed. It does get a bit crowded but I enjoyed the photography. We had opted for 3/4-star hotels and were not disappointed. Definitely trust Taxi services Rishikesh to organise another trip in the future.

It was a fabulous trip with such a good tour guide telling us each and every detail of every place we visited . We would like to have our tours managed by this company in future too.

We had an excellent and uneventful trip to Char Dham. Ashish was our guide and we are glad that we chose to have him as he did a great job explaining everything in detail. Sunil chose some of the best hotels for us to stay in (many of them right on beautiful river banks) and a majority of the hotel staff were very helpful.

Customer Testimonials

John William

I am very appreciative of the great service provided by Gaurav at Uttarakhand Explore for a small group safari at Rajaji National Park. I wanted to open the trip to classmates/friends and minimize my role in the middle, including with payments and transport / group size logistics. Gaurav was very professional and clear and accommodated a last minute cancellation by reducing the price per person, since we were all able to fit into one Jeep.
