Located in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, Yamunotri is one of the important Hindu pilgrimage sites and a part of the Char Dham Yatra. Blessed with divinity and natural bounties, Yamunotri Dham is encompassed by dense forests and rugged peaks. The shrine is constructed by Maharaja Pratap Shah and the deity inside is made up of black marble. We offer a wide range of meticulously crafted Yamunotri tour packages with which you can visit the temple and seek blessings.
Though, the temple remains closed during the winter months, from November to March, due to snowfall. But the idol of the temple's presiding deity is shifted to Mukhba and Kharsail in the Uttarkashi district.
Moreover, in our Yamunotri Tour Packages, you can indulge in some adventures like rock climbing and trekking through the green forests. Also, go for excursions to nearby attractions like Surya Kund, Divya Shila, Jankichatti, and Lakhamandal.
