Inviting you to experience the exquisite beauty and spiritual power of ‘The Himalayas’. These highest and most remote of mountains exert a universal magnetic attraction. Of incomparable natural beauty, the Himalayas have been central to scriptures, myths and legends of various cultures and religions.
Nestled in the lap of the Himalayas, lies Uttarakhand, also known as Dev Bhoomi, or the land of the gods. Home to some of the most scared Hindu temples and pilgrimages in the country, the chota (small) Char Dham, or four abodes, is located in the Garwal region of Uttarakhand. Each of the four abodes, mark the spiritual source of sacred rivers – River Ganga (Gangotri), River Mandakini (Kedarnath), River Yamuna (Yamunotri) and River Alaknanda (Badrinath). The Char Dham route follows the Hindu tradition of parikrama or clockwise circumambulation from left to right. It begins at Yamunotri, on to Gangotri and Kedarnath, and culminates at Badrinath. Linked to Self-realized masters for thousands of years, these mountains embody spiritual aspiration—and mankind’s highest potential.
