It is the commencement point of the trek to two popular destinations Yamunotri and Dodi Tal. Yamunotri is situated 13km from Hanuman Chatti which has to be covered by foot or on ponies. Jeeps are also available upto Janki Chatti which is 6km from Hanuman Chatti. Hanuman Chatti is the confluence of Hanuman Ganga and Yamuna River. You can purchase food items and raincoats from Hanuman Chaatti.
The hike from Hanuman Chatti to Yamunotri is very picturesque with beautiful views of a number of waterfalls. There are two trekking routes from Hanuman Chatti to Yamunotri, the one along the right bank proceeds via the Markandeya Tirth, where the sage Markandeya wrote the Markandeya Purana, the other route which lies on the left bank of the river goes via Kharsali, from where Yamunotri is a five or six hours climb away

 

Yamunotri Temple:  Yamunotri is one of the Char Dham and is also the first place to visit in the Char Dham Circuit. Thousands of tourist visit to Yamunotri temple of Goddess Yamuna from April to October. Yamunotri Temple was constructed by Maharaja Pratap Shah of Tehri Garhwal. The temple holds great significance amongst the Hindus as the places is source of the Yamuna River which is one of the major rivers of India. This sacred temple is located at 3,235mts above sea level and it could be reached by an easy trek of 13kms.

 

Surya Kund: There are a Number of thermal springs in the vicinity of the temple, which flows into numerous pools. The most important of these is Surya Kund. You can have bath here. One can cook rice by packing it in a cloth and dipping it in the hot water of the hot kund. Pilgrims take this cooked rice home as "Prasad".

 

Bath in icy waters of Goddess Yamuna
The destination of all pilgrims is usually to bath in the icy waters of Goddess Yamuna before having a darshan of the black idol of the Goddess herself in the main sanctum sanctorum. People usually have a dip in the taptkund adjacent to the temple before having a glimpse of the deity. The taptkund (natural hot sulphur springs) are said to have numerous medicinal properties.

Some devotees however venture out to the river below to bath in its icy waters. It is said that Yamuna's brother, Lord Yama (god of death) had promised her that whoever takes a dip in her waters will be spared the excruciating tribulations of hell. The dip in the icy waters releases a sudden surge of energy in the body like that of electricity charging a dead battery.

Divya Shila: A rock pillar, worshipped before entering the Yamunotri Temple. Here near the temple "Pooja" can be offered to Divya Shila.

After taking bath in Jamunabai Kund's warn water and having "Darshan" of pious "Yamunaji" returning to Jankichatti. Later drive back to Barkot.

Morning drive to Gaurikund, Trek start from Gaurikund to Kedarnath (3584 mts) on foot or on by pony / Doli.

Kedarnath (about 3400 m high) is approachable on foot from Gaurikund (about 2900m high), 5 km below Gaurikund, Sonprayag. vehicles move in one direction only from SonPrayag to Gaurikund. It ensures minimum traffic snarls, It is advisable to park your vehicle at SonPrayag and hitch a ride to Gaurikund. Kedarnath is 14kms from Gaurikund and you can choose to walk or take a mule. Older people can take the doli, which is carried by 4 hired people. If you can walk half a kilometer towards kedarnath you will find the office of booking mules and dolis. There will be plenty of people on the side ways asking you, if you need a mule. Its always better to book in that office because the mules which they give are good in health and strong.

Dont commit anything to them the people who own mules will start asking you if you need a mule for trek to kedarnath.Make sure your mule has been adequately rested before you start (it's a very steep climb to kedarnath), mules run on auto-pilot if not controlled by the guide.

Porters (pitthus in local language) are also available to carry your luggage up to Kedarnath and leave you free to walk up lighter. They can deliver to your hotel directly or walk with you.

Once you start from Gaurikund, there is a concrete road to walk on and there is a small shop for every 200 meters where you can get some tea, chocolates, biscuits, maggi noodles etc., After 7kms , you reach a place called Rambara. There are couple of guest houses here to stay including one by GMVN. Most pilgrims take a break here and eat some food and then resume the journey towards kedarnath.

The air gets thinner after Rambara and many people experience breathing trouble between Rambara and Kedarnath. This is particularly acute for people walking up. The ascent flattens out about a KM before Kedarnath. Thus, one climbs up about 1500 m in the 13 KM between Gaurikund and this point.

The view is fantastic while moving towards temple but the dung of mules make you feel uncomfortable because of so many mules. A good pair of binoculars would make the journey even more breath-taking.

Tour members should carry personal medicines, heavy woolen, toiletries and clothes for an overnight halt at Kedarnath. Check in Hotel.
