GANGOTRI & YAMUNOTRI 
 
The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  

TRANSPORT

These two thirtha kshetras can be reached from Rishikesh by bus. Air Travel is possible up to golly Grant that connects Delhi, Calcutta by Vayudut Service. From the airport one has to travel to Rishikesh, which incidentally is the railhead also. There are many buses run by U.P. Road ways, besides private Companies. For Yamunotri two approaches are available. The first one is from Dehra Dun en route Barkot and the other popular one is via Rishikesh. On the way, yatris witness the sight of Bhagirathi meeting Alakananda at Devaprayag, the meeting point of gods. A worth seeing place. Then via Dharasu, they go to Yamunotri. Trekking is a MUST and a distance of 15 km has to be covered by pony ride or walking.

For Gangotri, one has to come back to Dharasu from Yamunotri. On the way lies the famous pilgrimage town Uttarkasi, and it is an additional benefit to them. Dodital, another worth seeing place lies very near, but it has to be reached by trekking only.

As this yatra is made to the most coldest places perched high up in the Himalayas, certain precautions are quite necessary for yatris. Exposure to extreme cold debilitates and subjects them to several ailments. So, the yatris must equip themselves with woolen clothing that affords warmth. Faith in the God nudges them to the destination with or without precautions. When Jivatma takes flight to merge in the Paramatma, does it require worlds accessories?
