Religious & Pilgrimage Tours

Char Dham

The Himalayas have been worshipped as the abode of the Gods from time immemorial. Hinduism and Buddhism (as well as the ancient religion of Bon or Bon-Po) revere the Mount Kailash and the Mansarovar Lake region as the holiest of places. It is no big wonder that numerous ancient Shrines lie in the serenity of these lofty heights. Many of the temples and shrines can be reached by road without any real exertion, while some of the pilgrimages are akin to adventure.

In the mountains of Uttar Pradesh (Garhwal & Kumaon) where lofty peaks rise to eternal splendor, are the holy shrines of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. For centuries, saints and pilgrims have walked these mystical valleys known in ancient Hindu scriptures as Kedarkhand. According to the scripts of Skanda Purana this is the place where Lord Shiva wove the threads of life on Earth.

Besides adventure trip MHE also organizes religious tours. One of the more popular itineraries is the Char Dham Yatra.
