In a recent move, the government of Uttarakhand mandated that all pilgrims travelling from other countries or states complete an official registration process. No one would be permitted to travel without registration, according to the statement and the Uttarakhand government has notified each state’s chief secretaries of the same.
According to Chief Secretary SS Sandhu of the Uttarakhand Government, additional new measures have been prepared this time because it is anticipated that this Chardham Yatra will draw more pilgrims than it did last year.
In response to this, Sandhu stated, “The tourist department will publish ads in the newspapers in the native languages of every state so that people are aware of the new yatra guidelines. The government has established this arrangement so that pilgrims can enjoy a pleasant darshan and the crowds at the four Dhams won’t build up and cause a stampede-like situation.
With the previous land subsidence in Joshimath, Uttarakhand, which is also thought to be the final halt before reaching the famous Badrinath Dam, the yatra to Chardham has also been altered.
Char Dham Yatra Registration Guide:
