Map of The Char Dhm Yatra.
The road journey of char dham yatra is not simple. You can not reach straight from one dham to another dham. Many times you have to come back on the same route and then can go to another dham. The speed of the vehicle is limited. This increased the number of stay. The map of the char dham yatra is produced for your information
