After the devastation caused by the flash floods in 2013, the Char Dham Yatra finally showed an uptrend as more than 6,000 people visited the different shrines on the first day of the pilgrimage.

Char Dham Yatra – an annual Hindu pilgrimage in the hill state of Uttarakhand – covers four holy shrines of Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri and Gangotri.

About 6,000 pilgrims visited the holy shrine of Gangotri and Yamunotri after the temple gates of these shrines were opened, officials said.

To keep a check on any untowardly incident, the Uttrakhand government, this time is registering and keeping a tab on the number of people visiting the shrines.

The gates of Kedarnath and Badrinath will open on April 24 and April 26 respectively, officials said.
