Rejuvenate Your Body, Mind and Soul in Gangotri

By Editor123 Subscribe to RSS | January 4th 2012 | Views:

Gangotri in India is one among the Chardham or four holy places, of Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. Gangotri is the shrine nestled among deodar forests and worshipped by the Hindus as the source of the Ganges, the holiest among all the rivers in India. While the actual source of Gangotri is the ice cave of Gomukh, 18 km up the Gangotri glacier, the spiritual source of the river is 105 km from Uttarkashi. Hindus believe that here the Ganges is known as Bhagirathi, named after the king Bhagirath who brought Ganga, the river, down from the heavens. Hindus also believe that bathing in her waters delivers the soul of all the sins and awards moksha, or eternal salvation. The importance of the pilgrimage to Gangotri in India springs from this faith of the Hindus.

The shrine of Gangotri India is set among the rugged mountains at more than 3000 meters overlooking the thundering river as she springs from the frozen glacier. The shrine is made of white stone and pilgrims offer prayers at the temple after which they go to the bathing ghat at the river’s edge. Tens of thousands of Hindus visit Gangotri each year. The auspicious time for the visit is in the last week of April. The temple is accessible by road from Uttarkashi, Harsil and Dharali. There is excellent accommodation in Gangotri Hotels called Chardham Camps. These are based on the concept of the cottage camp and the accommodation is in the form of all-weather luxury thatched roof camps. There are baths and toilets, with both hot and cold water, attached to the camps.

The Gangotri Hotels, Chardham Camps, offer all the assistance to the pilgrims to the Chardham, besides assistance for a visit to the shrine. They also make all the arrangements needed for ponies and palanquins or palkis. Local masseurs from Barkot and Guptakashi are also made available in case required. The Chardham Camps have played a most unique role in redefining tourism. These Gangotri hotels have therefore been able to attract maximum tourists each year by providing the very best in terms of comfort and relaxation. While multi-cuisine restaurants cater for the palate of all tourists, due to the nature of the Char Dham Yatra, the Indian and vegetarian cuisine is naturally greater in demand. The hospitality offered at these camps will give all visitors a rich and rewarding experience.
