Is the Chota Char Dham Yatra opening too?

Every year the Chota Char Dham Yatra opens for travellers from April to May and the temples are shut for 6 months due to the heavy snowfall that happens in the region.

Chota Char Dham Yatra is incomplete without visiting Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri temples. The spokesperson recently announced that the Badrinath temple is also ready to reopen on May 18th, 2020.

The Gangotri and the Yamunotri temples will be opening on 14th May 2021 and finally, the devotees will be able to commence the holy Char Dham Yatra.
