“memorable chardham It was my dream to go Chardham with my wife. So before starting our salvation journey I want to know more about my chardham yatra. So I booked my trip from Uttarakhand Trip Trek. The executive of Uttarakhand Trip Trek told every aspect of chardham yatra and make it more easy to me. As im from west bangal so first day I visited the local sightseeing of delhi. Later after pooja for yatra we start our yatra. The guide was excellent and he took the initiation to introduce the fellow passengers to each other. This is the first time i found such a good tour guide. The whole trip was good with guide assisting us every moment. The accomodations were also good. And i must say the bus driver was really good the ride quality was excellent. Last I would like to give thanx to Uttarakhand trip trek to my dream make true and also made those moments memorable. with the blessing of lords if possible i would like to go again. I expect to Uttarakhand Trip Trek they would their quality of tour.

“Last year my family did this Chardham Yatra which was just amazing.. No words to say about the destinations in between whole Chardham journey.. Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Haridwar & Rishikesh was just fabulous.. we are a group of 9 members that was never seen the beauties before.. When we planned don't know the things about chardham yatra, then we contacted an chardham tour operator 'Uttarakhand Trip Trek' they help us alot to plan that trip, that's why we booked them and the whole journey was extremely fantastic... Food, sight-seeing and shopping: When you are on chardham yatra i recommend you to take most of the packed food from your home, if you can't afford then you can found some good restaurants (dhabha's) in between your journey. In your journey never forget to visit whole the pilgrimages, temples and shrines.... Activities & things to do: In rishikesh we enjoy the white water river rafting which was start from shivpuri to ramjhula (rishikesh) must say extremely adventurous... Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: In the end i must say if you want your journey blissful then choose best tour operators like we did to choose Uttarakhand Trip Trek. thanks Uttarakhand trip trek
