Do Dham or the Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra in India seem more interesting a voyage, than it is strenuous with Indian Holiday packages? The deep bends, the high mountains, and the narrow roads, specialty of this yatra is the spirit of the traveler and the zest of a spiritual tourist.
Haridwar is where tourists make the first stop before heading for Badrinath. Pilgrimage tours in India are incomplete without you going Haridwar. You can do away with the myth that pilgrimage is for old couples and retired tourists on vacation. Teenagers and young professionals make a significant group on these yatra.
