4 Days 3 Nights
The river goddess Yamuna has her seat in Yamunotri, the first stop on the Char Dham Yatra. The sacred town is perched atop Bandar Poonch Parvat at a height of 3,293 metres.
The 3-Night, 4-Day Ek Dham Yatra (Yamunotri) travel package has been specially designed to allow you to pay reverence at the feet of the river goddess while also visiting the places connected to it.
Yamunotri, the Yamuna River’s origin, is one of the four Char Dham pilgrimage locations. Yamunotri, which is in the Uttarkashi district, is situated at a height of 3293 metres above sea level. It is located near to the Indo-China border and is encircled by mountains on all sides. It is renowned for providing visitors with serenity and quiet.
North of Yamunotri, at a height of 6315 metres, is the Bandarpunch Mountain. Yamunotri is located 176 kilometres from Chamba, 21 kilometres from Sanya Chatti, 278 kilometres from Dehradun, and 236 kilometres from Rishikesh.
Yamunotri, which is a part of the well-known Char Dham Yatra, is well-known for its warm springs and glaciers. The Yamuna River originates in Yamunotri. A respected sage named Asit Muni is said to have lived here in the past.
The shrine was built near the base of the hill since the true source, a frozen lake of ice and glacier (also known as Yamunotri Glacier or Champasar Glacier), is not frequently visited because it is inaccessible at a height of 4421 metres above sea level.
