What will be the exact duration of stay required at Gangotri?


Gangotri darshan would usually require just a night’s stay, but that is, if visiting Gangotri, is the only thing on your travel itinerary. Most travellers choose a complete Chardham package and the typical order of the tour being, Yamunotri – Gangotri – Badrinath – Kedarnath . From Yamunotri, they reach Prakriti -The Retreat, by late evening and travel to Gangotri temple, the next morning and the same day, they proceed to the next dham. Prakriti – The Retreat helps you, program your schedule by organizing delicious north Indian or English breakfast as per your travel timings.


If your itinerary includes, a two night stay, then you can treat yourself to another day’s supreme hospitality from the ever enthusiastic staff of Prakriti – The Retreat, to serve you. You can even visit the beautiful places of Gangotri – Nelong valley, Gangotri national park, Harsil and Bagori villages etc.


How can you reach the Gangotri Temple?


There is no need to walk or trek the route to the temple as you can drive all the way through till the parking lot. Depending upon the programs and other ritual activities, you have planned to perform in the temple, you may need to spend just about a couple of hours at the temple. Morning and evening Aarti is performed which is a treat for the eyes.

How does Prakriti – The Retreat help you manage your day?


Prakriti – The Retreat has everything in place with a systematic approach to help you manage your time and budget. A two night stay is recommended to all pilgrims so that they can have a complete and satisfied visit. An additional night is an advantage as you may relax and enjoy the serene natural beauty, if you have completed all your planned visits for the day. Since road travels are long stretches, usually of 8-9 hours from one dham to the next, a longer stopover is ideal. It will give travellers some rest time in between the hectic Chardhaam tour.


An additional night stay will also help, mainly during peak season, when Gangotri attracts tourists in large numbers and as a result, darshan may take more time than expected. Sometimes unseasonal rains can block road traffic in the Chardham route or delay/ cancel helicopter flights from Harsil. With an additional night booking at the hotel, you would have more flexibility to proceed with the trip, in case of such unforeseen delays. Though there is no specific permission needed to enter the temple, lot of people have missed darshan because they were short of time. However, VIP pass for a quick darshan might help you during peak seasons like in the month of May.
