IMPORTANT TRIP ADVISORY:

  1. The best season should be preferable to make a visit so that you can visit the shrines when the doors are open. The Yatra normally begins in April-May and ends in October-November every year but the peak season is in the month of September, as during June to August, the region witness heavy rains and may lead to loads of difficulties. Similarly, the May month is full of crowd and will also lead to many discomforts and problems especially to the ill people. September is the best season for all since after rains the areas are flourished with beautiful views and scenic beauties. The whole valley looks fresh, new and refined for great landscapes and scenic views.
  2. Hire a Guided Tour Operator: the second aspect is to select whether you should go for a self-managed tour or should seek a renowned or reliable tour operator for yourself. Definitely, a trustworthy and experienced tour operator will help you in many ways. They will manage the best services for you like your arriving and departure, the best accommodation and the other conveniences you need at the entire Yatra.
  3. Check the reviews and the feedback from your friends or relatives for complete genuine information about the guided tour operators. Check whether they cover all the aspects of the best services including transportations, meals, hotel accommodations, handling and caring of luggage and other relevant facilities. This will help you to remain free from all the hassles and tensions of the tour.
  4. Please ensure if you are physically unfit for this strenuous journey. Get yourself thoroughly checked by any physician 3 months prior to the journey. Make sure you do not suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiac disease or any such problems. If you have so, it is better to get proper medication and treatment before heading on to the Chardham Yatra.
  5. It is always advisable to carry the prescribed medicines along with some general ailments needed for common pains; stomach upsets, along with some suitable creams for applying on your legs to treat any minor sprain.
  6. Carry comfortably warm and heavy woollen clothes along with you as the season is always cold there and at high altitude it is impossible to survive in lighter clothes. It is also advisable to carry a unfailing cell-operated torch with some extra cells to get help on the way especially at nights.
  7. Always avoid carrying heavy luggage along with you and make sure you carry only the most necessitated items with you. So, make prior arrangements for leaving your luggage safely at Haridwar only.
  8. It will be a smart decision to carry some packets of the dry fruits like raisins, almonds and cashews that will help your body to regain energy during the arduous walks in the journey.
  9. If you are not used to long distance make an earlier practice for that so that you may not feel fatigue during the trekking.
  10. Always plan your trip in a group either with your family or friends since the routes are challenging and you may face some kind of difficulties. So, a great assistance is always needed for the same.
  11. Besides, all these mentioned tips; the most essential thing to keep in mind is to have a strong will and determination in your mind so that you would be able to complete this Yatra without any hassles and problems and will reach easily at the high peaks of the sacred Himalayas.
  12. Avoid drinking water at all cost unless it is bottled water or from some clean natural source.
  13. Food-wise anything that is boiled, cooked or fried is a safer bet than anything cold or raw. So avoid cold salads, raw vegetables, drinks with ice etc.
  14. Carry a mosquito/insect repellent wherever you go to avoid diseases like malaria or simply even the itchy discomfort.
  15. Do carry heavy woollens, including thermal body warmers, wind cheaters, raincoats, sleeping bags, blankets, water-proof shoes with sufficient grips, small water proof tents, torch with sufficient batteries and walking sticks.
  16. Keep a slip with your Name, Address and the name of accompanying yatri in your pocket.
  17. Women are advised to avoid sarees and opt for salwar kameez or trousers.
  18. Carry water and dry eatables. Ration and firewood quota is available en route and can be purchased.
  19. All medical facilities during Yatra are free. It is advisable to carry your own personal medical kit and First aid box.
  20. Hire only a registered ponywalla or porter. Don’t walk far away from ponies carrying luggage.
  21. Move slowly and steadily, as this is an arduous pilgrimage and maintain discipline.
  22. Don’t relax at places where warning signs are fixed. Don’t attempt short cuts on the route.
