Char Dham Yatra is SAFE Now
We are always inquiring to locals at Gourikund and Uttarkashi and state Government officers about road and weather conditions know whether their visit to the hill state will be safe for our guest. As of now there is no need to fear as Char Dham yatra and all the places of tourist interest across the state are absolutely safe. Those planning to visit Uttarakhand can go anywhere in the state without any trouble and the state government is "fully prepared" to deal with any natural calamity including quakes.
All arrangements have been made on the yatra route for the convenience of pilgrims where there are State Disaster Response Force besides a well- oiled disaster mitigation and management machinery which has been directed to evacuate pilgrims and tourists in case of a crisis. Apart from the trek route, chopper services are also available for pilgrims from many places like Fata, Guptakashi, Narayan koti, Masta, sersi and there is accommodation available at Kedarnath for 2000 persons for each night by the state government.
The yatra to Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, and Hemkund Sahib has been hindered even as the restoration of roads and bridges leading to the shrines and the situation is absolutely normal.
