पिछले वर्ष मैंने दो यात्रियो का चारोंधाम यात्रा के यमनोत्री,गंगोत्री केदारनाथ व बद्रीनाथ दर्शन हेतु e darshan प्रति यात्री 50/ देकर बूकिंग कराया था गंगोत्री
यमुनोत्री मे तो कम भीड़ थी लेकिन बद्रीनाथ ओर केदारनाथ मंदिर मे प्रवेश नहीं दिया गया वहाँ के व्यवस्थापको ने e darshan reservation slip को अमान्य कर दिया । तथा अपने नियमानुसार विशेष दान लेकर अनुमति दी । उत्तराखंड टौरिस्म बोर्ड की ये ठगी बंद होना चाहिए।

We are 4 people planning to visit char dham. While registration for char dham, we need to select dates to visit these 4 dham, as per the itinerary, we have booked helicopter to visit Kedarnath on 21st may. But while registration, this date is not available to select, so what to do now? Can you please guide us. Thanks a lot in advance.

Rahul
Reply to  Nisu

I don’t think they have an upper limit as the number of registrations is limited to 200 in Badrinath while over 2000 people visit there every day. If 200 was the limit then only 200 would have been able to stay there instead every single hotel is booked 100% next week and the number of beds will cross over 3000 there at the very least.
So I am sure you can go over there and get registered,

Bhavna Bansal

Hi Sacred team, We have done the online registration from your webportal. Do we still need to get the biometric card from the authorized centers. Also, we are planning to visit Kedarnath & Badrinath , hence request your help to best possible way to cover the same with minimum time & the place to stay. We are in Delhi & open to travel by Bus or By Car as well. Also, please do let us know , what is the best possible & nearest route to visit tungnath & Chandrashila.

Request your help.

Sacred Yatra
Reply to  Bhavna Bansal

Hi Bhavna, if you had done online registration, then an acknowledgment slip will be mailed to you by respective authority (check your spam too & we have only shown you the way to register online, you had done online registration at onlinechardhamyatra website).

As there is huge rush at this time, its best to pre book a package to visit Badri-Kedar to avoid any hassle. We are providing best packages to Chardham, Do Dham & Ek Dham. Kindly check here at https://www.sacredyatra.com/travel-packages. We will make your yatra very easy as we are premier company for Chardham yatra with best local knowledge.

For visiting Tungnath & Chandrashila, the best possible way from Haridwar/ Delhi is by Ukhimath. You have to hire a taxi from Ukhimath to Chopta (base camp for Tungnath-Chandrashila Trek). You can also do this trek from Ukhimath or Gopeshwar in a day as from Chopta it only takes 4-5 hrs to complete trek.

Plus, if you do Badrinath-Kedarnath yatra, Tungnath-Chandrashila trek can be done in between the yatra too as Chopta is located at in between the route.

Hope this will help you !!

We are planning to go to Kedarnath on June 29th (via Guptkashi) and leave on June 30th Morning. We are about 100 people in the group. How do we book accommodation for an over-night stay for the group. I heard that there are camps available.

Reply to  Jagannadha Rao

Hi Mr Jagannadha Rao, You can book accommodations through GMVN official website. There is accommodation facilities for more than 5000 pilgrims. As you are large group, we suggest you to book in advance.

B S SHRIDHAR

We completed the Chardham yatra on 09-05-2017. Since the temple opened after Winter only during May 2017, the crowd was huge. Our PM and President also visited the places. Nice places, but the terrain is hard to negotiate. Unfortunately the Helicopter permission to Kedarnath got delayed, the pilgrims were forced to take either Pony / Doli to Kedar from Gowri Khund. Quite tedious and senior citizens had tough time. The helicopter services should be planned well in advance to avoid trouble to senior citizens / Ladies / Children. Nice Yatra to experience with.

Reply to  B S SHRIDHAR

Sacred Yatra congratulate you for completing Chardham Yatra with faith and joy. We understand your serious concern towards yatra and its operation.

We are planning for Kedarnath visit via helicopter, which is being booked online(Pawan Hans).
It seems medical test is required.
1. where and how medical test is done?
2. If somehow test is negative for any member in group, will he/she not allowed to visit the temple?
3. Will helicopter company refund money for that passenger?

Kindly confirm.

Please confirm all the requirements from Pawan Hans.. they will guide you better.

Ritu Dhar

1.How long I have to wait at Gaurikund for getting a horse or pony whichever is available to reach the temple?

2. We are 02 in number and physically fit and young. Is it possible to come down on the same day after Darshan by horse?
What could be the possibility of duration to be taken in climbing the top and to come downwards?

3. By what time we need to start in the morning if we want to come down in the same day by horse or pony?

4. What is the method of booking rooms through GMVN website, it claims that rooms could be booked only before 3 days of stay but what I can see the online quota has already been filled up for that day atleast before 10days. How come it is possible? Also some rooms are showing not operating for this time span. It’s highly confusing.

5. I have collected the online booking slip for 26th May visit at Kedar. Now wgat I need to do next? Can I collect both the biometric registration card and medical certificate from the Guptkashi GMVN guest house counter as because we will be staying somewhere near Guptkashi named Kedar Valley Resort from 25th onwards.

Please reply to me.

Sacred Yatra
Reply to  Ritu Dhar

Hi Ritu, you have to start early from Gaurikund to get back down on same day. So you have to start too early from your resort at Guptkashi. Horse and Pony are available at Gaurikund prepaid counter which takes 5 hrs to reach Kedarnath. For GMVN accommodation you could call at their office ask for booking. You can get biometric card at counters at Guptkashi, Sonprayag and Gaurikund.

Will the things go better if I stay somewhere near Sitapur instead of Guptkashi?

Absolutely, You can save 1-2 hrs.

manish

I would be travelling with my parents and uncle (all senior citizens) to Kedarnath via helicopter service from phatta. My question is both my parents are heart patients and father has slight lungs related issues, so how can be sure of they getting medical certificate before booking helicopter tickets in advance. It there a possibility that I book their helicopter tickets and then medical team does not provide them the certificate and I am stranded in between.

Sacred Yatra
Reply to  manish

Hi Manish, Medical checkup is done just before the flight, so it is not possible to do medical checkup long before the flight. You can also take medical test at your end from any hospital, so that you get an idea of medical fitness of them. Another option is use of Dandi Kandi service.

Aditya

1. Is Medical Certificate required for Kedarnath who goes by Trekking or Ponies?
2. We have booked our Room in GMVN Gaurikund. Can we take our Vehicle up to Gaurikund or we should park it at Sonprayag?
3. Will it Rain daily in Kedarnath? Should we Carry Rain Coats or they can be availed in Rudraprayag or Sonprayag?

Sacred Yatra
Reply to  Aditya

No medical certificate is required for Kedarnath and you have to park vehicle at Sonprayag. Rain coats should be taken as precaution and are available at shops in Gaurikund.

Dharmveer Kumar

I’m planning to visit kedarnath by 22nd May. If I registered for yatra by online registration, is it mandatory to visit on 22nd May ? Or I can visit on the next day ?

You can also visit any other day too. GMVN offers accommodation facilities at Kedarnath. You can book accommodation in advance through GMVN website.

3. All persons in the Online Registration should visit for Photo Metric Cards or One Person can get all Cards?

Yes you have to go to the counter to receive registration card by showing the slip (online registration). But you don’t have to stand in a long queue, you will get easily registration card from the counter. Medical fitness counter is compulsory for Yamunotri & for Kedarnath helicopter service. There are medical counter available at Jankichatti and helipads for medical check up.
