Situated at an altitude of 3,293 metres in the Garhwal Himalayas, Yamunotri is the source of the sacred Yamuna River and the abode of goddess Yamuna. One of the four pilgrimage sites of Chota Char Dham, Yamunotri is the popular tourist attraction primarily because it has the holy Yamunotri Temple. Every year, the attraction observes not only god lovers in large numbers but also the adventure fanatics seeking for the best trekking experience.
Be it for the beginners or the experts; the Yamunotri trek is perfect for all. As you walk through the snow-covered mountains, the rugged and slippery terrains are challenging yet exhilarating. There are two routes for this trek- from Hanuman Chatti, which is a 13 Km trek and from Janki Chatti, which is a 6 km trek. On the way, many old temples can be seen which increases the sanctity of the hill station. The majestic Garhwal Himalayas and the beautiful waterfalls look spellbinding from the top. The awe-inspiring views of the mountains and scattered trees is a treat for the eyes. The pious Yamunotri Temple, perched on the top is worth the climb of three to four hours. As you walk amidst the picturesque valleys, Yamunotri will surely take you to a different world with its purity and stillness.
