  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

PM Will Review Reconstruction Project and Visit Kedarnath on Diwali Eve

Uttarakhand News

Yamunotri Priests Disappointed by delay in reconstruction work of the Shrine

Local residents as well as Yamunotri priests have expressed disappointment and dissatisfaction over the delay in restoration of temple. People have also accused the central governments and state of distribute funds for Kedarnath restoration project and ignoring the Yamunotri temple, which was also damaged during the flash flood in June.

Purushotam Uniyal , Former secretary of the temple committee said that the shrine is extremely damaged by Flash Flood. The hot spring, the protection wall, connecting bridge of the temple and the Yamuna River Ghats are entirely destroyed. Some nearby infrastructure is partially damaged. Except this, the river also got filled with large stones that can cause threat to temple anytime. Still the government has not initiated the repair and restoration work there.

He also said that When similar tragedy happened with Kedarnath in 2013 both the sate and the central government made the shrine and the valley itself their priority. With immense fund along with many reconstruction projects the Kedarnath shrine has been transformed in no time. But in the case of Yamunotri no one showed their interest in repairing the shrine and nearby places. He added that Yamunotri is a holy town of Goddess Yamuna, the first among the Char Dham and the centre of faith for a number of devotees so the government should show their interest in reconstruction and repairing of Yamunotri as they have shown during the Kedarnath Tragedy.

Repeating similar views, Pawan Prakash Uniyal, a priest of Yamunotri temple said that Yamunotri being the first destination from the char dham and one of the clean & iconic places the government should have shown their interest in it. After going through a lot of severe suffering devotees visit the temple in search of peace.

At the same time Ashish Chauhan, Uttarkashi district magistrate said that the repairing work has already started restoring nearby places and trek routes as well. Water Supply alongwith electricity and other basic amenities of the temple have already been restored. However the complete restoration work needs a massive budget and for that a proposal has been sent to the government and the repair work will get started accordingly.
