Before embarking on this journey, one has to be prepared to experience physical and mental hardships on the Himalayan roads. The Char Dham Yatra is one of the quite accessible yet most arduous journeys. The Yatra route in the state is usually bustling with activity, especially during the summer. The scenic beauty of the mountains solemnly provides strength to the pilgrims, moving towards their destination. Each of these four sites is devoted to a specific deity.. Yamunotri is dedicated to the Goddess Yamuna Gangotri is dedicated to the Goddess Ganga. Kedarnath to Lord Shiva and finally Badrinath is to Lord Vishnu. According to legend, Lord Vishnu meditated here while his consort Lakshmi took the form of a berry (badri) tree to offer him shade.
