Hi all,

After going through forums on IM and doing some research, I have shortlisted following two tour operators for Chardham yatra.
1) Shubh Yatra Holidays Pvt. Ltd., Rishikesh
2) Skylark Holidays Pvt. Ltd., Haridwar

I have received Itineraries from both tour operators. Itinerary (12 Days, Delhi to Delhi) and costs (app. 17000 per person for regular package) are almost similar.

Can anyone guide me in selecting between one of the above two tour operators? Which one is recommended?

Thanks,
Max

Hi Max28,

What I beleive that you may not required tour operator for chardham trip. It is best that you reach haridwar by train and Hire vehicle from there on per day basis ( it takes normally 9 days to complete the trip) and charges are approx 2000-2500 per day on tyope of vehicle i.e Sumo or Innova. Staying option are not luxurious on this route except GMVN and few other private accomodation.

costs for Chardham

Hi IMers
I'm new here. Just joined the forum.

We (husband & I) are planning a Chardham Yatra this Oct (after 15th). Trying to get an idea of the total costs.

So far, Shubh Yatra has quoted Rs80,000/- for two people, with luxury hotels (not sure what luxury means here.) 12 days, Xylo, starting from Haridwar.

Is the cost okay or should I shop around some more? Would appreciate your views, thanks.

Dear RTPF,

Going through package tour may be your choice,

However if you hire Xylo (AC) for 12 days the per day cost will 2700 and not more then that. No hotel will ask you more than 1000 ( I am talking about decent one, as luxury is not available on thaqt route). So It is up to you to go through travel agency with package tour or hire the vehicle and do on spot booking. Even you can book online GMVN guest house as they are the best on on this route.

Thanks spgupta. You have a strong point here and I will look at this option. Going through a tour operator will avoid hassles of any booking errors and there would be someone to contact in case of any emergency change of plans etc.

About accommodation, the ones considered are Chardham Camps, Nirvana, Monal, Sarovar Portico and others similar to these. Not sure how they compare with GMVN. Would help to know.
