DEHRADUN: As the weather improved on Wednesday morning, pilgrims waiting at Sonprayag, Gaurikund, and Jankichatti were able to continue their journey to the Himalayan temples.
On Tuesday, the pilgrimage was temporarily suspended for the second day in a row due to snow and rain on the Char Dham pathways. The weather returned to normal on Wednesday, and pilgrims who had been advised to stay for safety concerns in Sonprayag, Gaurikund, and Jankichatti on their route to the temples on Tuesday were allowed to continue their journey, according to the Kedarnath-Badrinath temple committee. It also reported that helicopter flights to Kedarnath, which had been interrupted due to inclement weather, have been restored.
Since the start of the yatra on May 3, a total of 9,69,610 pilgrims have visited Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri.
