The Uttarakhand government said on Tuesday that the Chardham Yatra will begin in a limited way from June 8. Madan Kaushik, the state cabinet minister and spokesperson of the state government, said, "We are preparing to start the Chardham Yatra from June 8". After talking to the governments, it will also be opened for pilgrims and tourists from other states.
Madan Kaushik said, "We are preparing to start the Chardham Yatra. We will start it in limited numbers after 8 June. The Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri temples located in the high Himalayan regions of Uttarakhand have opened a month and a half ago but they have not yet been opened for devotees due to the Corona crisis. This will be the first time that pilgrims are deprived of the sight of Char Dham due to the Corona epidemic. ''
The doors of Gangotri and Yamunotri were opened on 24 April at the festival of Akshaya Tritiya, while the doors of Kedarnath Temple were opened on 29 April and the gates of Badrinath were opened on 15 May. Kaushik said that we will consider running buses from other state governments and only then will the devotees and tourists from the states be able to visit us. He clarified that the journey will be limited in the initial stages.
