The first of 4 Dham, Darshan of start of Yamuna river.
May 2019
Normally Char Dham yatra starts from here this is first. Its a 6 km trek up. Horses, palkhis, Peethus available plenty. Its also smallest of yatra spaces, very narrow path, and closed by yamuna valley on a side. Its not as open and wide as Gangotri, Kedarnath or Badrinath. Kedarnath is also closed at top on all sides unless you trek beyond. Yamunotri has a well laid path like Vaishnodevi with enough sitting places and tea snack counters. So trek is relaxed. Even at slowest speed you can reach up by 4 hours, return trek takes 2 hours down max. BUT its so narrow a path it gets overcrowded and congested very fast with walkers, horses and palkhis all fighting for space barely wide to accommodate 3-4 people. They push you a lot. On top is Yamuna Maa temple, hot water kund to bath. Also a Hot water spring where they boil Prasad rice. The temple base was damaged in 2013 floods but miraculously it still stands.

You need decent walking shoes, a stick for support easily rented in market below at Rs 20 per. Thats all. The trek is steep and is a good testing workout of you intend to trek Kedranath and Vasudhara falls at Badrinath or Gamngotri-Gaumukh. In standard family Char Dham Gaumukh is not possible. The 15 kms road leading to Yamunotri through half a dozen 'Chattis' [villages] is also narrow. So early morning start is recommended to avoid a horrible traffic jam. There should be some regulation of how many people go up here at a time because this one is the most harrowing place of all 4 Dhams. Since the valley is fully narrow except bus stand and market area at top yatris stay spread out in these Chattis if in package tour. So traffic is bad.

The trail is carved out of rock so those riding horse or Palkhi should be alert at all times. Looking at valley and not paying attention to bends having sharp rock cuts overhead is fatal and can split your head very badly if not watchful. So riding up watch that left side rock as crowd rush can push you into one fatally. There is Govt doctor clinic at top near temple for emergency or oxygen supply for people who may find sudden altitude change problematic. Trek is steep last 2 kms test endurance. Just after Bhairav Mandir at 4 kms. This stretch has a lot of winding steep stairs that makes it hard. Steps are always taxing than natural trails or paths. Last 0.5 kms to temple is easy downward road. So you have a fight of 5.5 kms max. Nothing will power and love for nature cannot manage though. If you have ambitions to trek Kedarnath in full Yatra, this exercise is a must.

One more thing it is said one cannot bath in Yamunotri alone, but it has some ritual karma for a brother and sister to do holy dip together. I do not know why this belief exists. If you have family, you can take kids above 8 years for yatra but have adequate thermal wear warm clothes. Avoid having local water give them packed Mineral water to avoid infections in sudden extreme climate and water change. Sickness is last thing among kids you need as viral infections, gastric, constipation can be issues. And waterproof jackets a must because rains usually are a norm now since 2013 floods changed weather pattern. These days afternoons get sudden icy rains or showers.

Watch out for the razor sharp rock cuts on way up on left side if on a horse or Palkhi. Safety of head is paramount. On way down if on a horse pray the horse does not slip. because its a long way down in rocks. Walking is best if you ask me.
