The Traffic Directorate and the SDRF (Disaster Response Force) have prepared the ‘Meri Yatra’ app. In the app, there is information about Chardham Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Hemkund Sahib, and Mansarovar. Pilgrim can also find nearby locations of each Dham with the tabs e.g. ATM, Bus service.

This app will also give information about the Accident Potential Spots of Uttarakhand. This app will be connected to Google, which will alert the driver about dangerous turns through a beep about 400 meters in advance. So that the danger of coming can be avoided. Currently, this app will have information about 673 blind turns in 13 districts of the state. The Directorate of Traffic believes that people coming from other parts of the country to Chardham Yatra or other tourist places do not have knowledge of the sharp turn of the mountains. When the vehicle is at high speed, there is a possibility of accidents on these dangerous turns. Keeping this in mind the App is very useful for all the travelers coming to Chardham or any other places of Uttarakhand.
