E-pass is mandatory.
Here is what I found in the government website - https://badrinath-kedarnath.gov.in/online-services/yatra-e-pass/
(A) The pilgrims are allowed to visit the dham if they have valid Yatra ePass.
(B) Either RTPCR/TrueNat/CBNAAT/RAT COVID Negative test report taken within past 72 hrs(from starting date of yatra) or Double Vaccination Certificate is mandatory for applying yatra epass.
(C) In case information/Covid Negative Test Report provided by you, while applying for yatra epass is found wrong, you will not be allowed to perform yatra and a legal action will be taken against you.
(D) As per Covid-19 pandemic guidelines, Pilgrims/Devotees can book online Puja/Paath/Bhog/Aarti, but cannot visit inside (Garbh Greh) the temple to perform their booked puja rituals.
Hi Khushboo e-pass us mandatory for visiting Char Dhaam. Recently a lot of people were denied to proceed further on their journey since they didn't had an e-pass.
It is better to register first and then kick off your journey with an e-pass to avoid any hassle.
