Chardham Yatra resumes as weather clears up

Last week, amid torrential rains, the Uttarakhand government had temporarily suspended the Char Dham Yatra as heavy rainfall Chardham Yatra.

Char Dham Yatra 2021 started on September 18 this year after the Nainital High Court on September 16 lifted the ban on Chardham Yatra and allowed only fully Covid vaccinated people with a mandatory COVID-19 negative report for the annual pilgrimage. This yatra attracts lakhs of tourists and devotees every year from across the country and abroad.
