Do Dham Yatra - Overview

Do Dham Yatra is two Dham yatra of Kedarnath and Badrinath. Also popular as Kedarbadri Yatra, Do Dham is most popular amongst the Char Dham Yatra- Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri, and Gangotri. These four places are considered to be sacred by the Hindu religion. Kedarnath falls in the Rudraprayag district and Badrinath falls in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand state, India.

By reaching Uttarakhand, you can set off your Do Dham yatra either from Rishikesh or Haridwar. If you continue further your journey for Do Dham from Haridwar, then you will go first to Guptkashi. It will take you 7-8 hours to reach Guptkashi. If you like, stay at Guptkashi for the first day or stay at Sonprayag as well so you might have less distance to cover up for the next day and get enough time to rest.

On the second day, you will go further from Guptkashi or Sonprayag to Gaurikund (middle of the way for Kedarnath). At Sonprayag, you have to pass through the biometric process that is free of cost. Sonprayag is situated near the holy Mandakini river. The origin of this river is the Chorabari glacier near the Kedarnath temple. Mandakini River is a tributary of the Alaknanda River.

Now your trekking begins from the Gaurikund to Kedarnath which is around 19 km. The senic beauty of Gaurikund will stun and mesmerize you mind for a while. According to Hindu mythology, there are hot springs in Gaurikund & taking bath in these springs is considered sacred.

On the way, you find the places like Bhimchatti, Jungle Chatti, and Lichauli where the camp facility is available. Going through the Kedarnath trekking route, when you see the picturesque waterfalls flowing in the hills, enchanting views of nature and the sound of birds.

Reaching Kedarnath temple which is located at an altitude of 3584 meters and dedicated to Lord Shiva, you can do worship and offer prayers over here. Being right here at Kedarnath temple is a great feeling of joy and happiness once in a lifetime.

On the third day, you will pass through the Guptkashi to Joshimath. Generally, it takes you 6-7 hours (around 145 km.) to reach Joshimath. Badrinath temple is almost 45 km. away from Joshimath. If you wish, you might stay right here at Joshimath on the same day and plan your visit to the Badrinath temple on the fourth day.

Badrinath temple is located at an altitude of 3300 meters which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Reaching all the way to the Badrinath temple and finding the temple in front of you and the beautiful hill behind, the open weather and the mythical Alaknanda river flowing in front of the temple will surely make you spellbound. There is also a Tapt Kund which carries hot springs within it. Often, pilgrims go for a bath in this Kund before going to worship in the Badrinath temple.
