Char Dham Yatra Route will open From April to November 2023
On the evening of Basant Panchami, January 26, 2023, the temple committee in Char Dham announced the opening dates. Gangotri and Yamunotri temples will open on April 22. The Kedarnath and Badrinath temples will open on April 25 and April 27, respectively.
The temple committee has also set a tentative date for closing, which is November 21. The final date will be given on the day before Dussehra.
All of the Char Dham shrines are located at high altitudes that experience heavy snowfall during winter. Therefore, the temples are closed for 6 months each year. They open in April or May and close for the winter around November.
Traditionally, the sequence of Chardham is Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, which is in a clockwise direction. All of the char dhams are well connected by roads, railways, and air as well, and Dehradun is a good landmark, to begin with.
