The yatra to the four dhams of Uttarakhand, Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri, is starting from July 1 for Uttarakhand residents. For this, a guideline has been issued, according to which a limited number of devotees will be allowed to travel. According to Ravinath Raman, CEO of Uttarakhand Char Dham Devasthanam Board, people of the state will be allowed to visit at present. For this, people have to take approval from the district administration of the respective dham.

People will be able to make pilgrimage only after the travel pass is issued from the local administration. There will be darshan in all four dhams from 7 am to 7 pm. Free tokens will be given by the Devasthanam Board to visit. The token will have to be compulsorily taken for philosophy benefits. A maximum of 80 devotees will be able to visit Kedarnath in an hour.
