Best Time to plan Chardham Yatra: The tourist season for Char Dham Yatra is from May to September. Char Dham shrines witness a heavy influx of pilgrims every year during its ‘pilgrim season’. A lot of this is attributed to the shrines being open for Darshan for only half a year owing to their location in extremely cold locales. Thus, the sacred shrines remain closed for winters and can be accessed only during the summer months, May to November (beginning). For helicopter journey, a trip can be planned in May-June and August-October. It is best to avoid a visit during the rainy season, especially in July as the weather is likely to turn rough and terrain adverse due to heavy and unpredictable rains in the region. Helicopter services are also non-operational during the month of July because of the stormy and rainy weather.
Things to carry: One needs to carry in addition to normal accessories, woolens, jackets, warm clothing. Kedarnath can be really chilly any time of the year. Torchlight is a must – as power supply at various places is erratic. it is also advisable to carry first aid and any personal medication that your previous medical history may deem necessary. In fact, it is always better to consult a doctor and ask his/her opinions before choosing what medication to carry. Some medicines you ought to carry include tablets for sore-throat, antibiotics, antiseptic cream, anti-fever medicines, cough-cold tablets, painkillers, bandages, medication for Blood Pressure issues, etc.
