Stay in a Comfortable Hotel During Your Char Dham Tour
Hindus have been going on pilgrimages ever since the dawn of history. However, in the earlier time, there was no concept of proper accommodation while the roads were non-existent as well. This was true for the Char Dham or the four important places of pilgrimage. These places include Gangotri, the origin of the Ganges; Yamunotri, the origin of the river Yamuna; Kedarnath, the abode of Lord Shiva; and Badrinath, the abode of Lord Vishnu.
With passage of time, things have changed a lot. The Leisure Hotels group has created Char Dham hotels for those who wish to go on one of these tours. The basic reason behind creating these hotels is to provide wholesome food and comfortable accommodation to people coming on these tours. The Chardham Camps have been created in 2003 close to the four pilgrimage centers. Therefore, for Badrinath the camp is at Joshimath, at Guptkashi for Kedarnath, at Harsil for Gangotri and at Barkot for Yamunotri.
The accommodation at the Chardham hotels is perfect in every aspect. It meets the environmental regulations while totally satisfying the pilgrims’ requirement in terms of comforts. It is also true that the facilities one enjoys at these camps are far better compared to what one can get in any other hotel in this area.
In the hotels, you will find attached toilets and bath with running hot & cold water. Pilgrims will receive all necessary help in visiting the shrines and arrangements for the pony and palanquin. During the Chardham Yatra tours, one will be served piping hot vegetarian food that is multi-cuisine in nature.
