Uttarakhand government’s early measures for Char Dham Yatra 2023
As a record number of pilgrims are expected to visit Uttarakhand during Char Dham Yatra 2023, the Uttarakhand government has taken a series of immediate measures for the smooth conduct of the yatra.
- Steps are taken to determine the daily limit of yatris in Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri.
- Bus services are being improvised so that the rotation of these buses can be maintained.
- Horses and mule operators will have to register themselves to transport people.

- Char Dham Yatra camps will be set up before the start of the yatra for tourists’ stay.
- Special facilities have been done on Char Dham routes in places like Pipilotti, Helang, Pandukehwar, and Govind Ghat.
- Arrangements for excavator machines are made in landslide zones and healthcare systems have been improved in these areas.

Token system for quick darshan
The Uttarakhand government has introduced a new token system for the convenience of the yatris. According to this new token system, pilgrims will be given tokens in which the darshan timings are mentioned in advance. They will not need to stand in long queues and can come just before time for darshan.
This will save them time in which they can do some shopping or rest. This will enable the local authorities to control the number of people outside the shrines. However, those who want to perform special pujas like Rudrabhishek have to apply through the online portal. Read here more details…
