Chardham, the most revered pilgrimage circuit of India is no more confined to one season. Now devotees can have a glimpse of their beloved deities in winter as well. The popular Chardham Pilgrimage Tour is centred on four highly esteemed earthly abodes of the deities called Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath; all of which are found in the lap of Indian Himalaya. The temples of Chardham Pilgrimage are located in high altitude and get covered with thick layers of snow in winter season. It is during this period of the year when the deities are transferred to their winter sojourns in nearby villages and worshipped with same reverence maintaining the norms and rituals of religious scriptures. With the recent development travellers will be able to plan their consecrated pilgrimage to the winter sojourns of the deities such as Ukhimath for Kedarnath, Joshimath for Badrinath, Mukhba for Gangotri and Kharsali for the deity of Yamunotri.
