    Namaste !

    My best greetings from Finland, Europa, to India.

    I have just seen your webpage about Char Dhama etc, Vedic tirthas and
    Dhamas. I have a question to you. I would like to make a journey to
    Gangotri & Bhadrinath by the end of September.

    First of all, how is the climate then, from last week of September
    onwards (or in 1st week of October) usually – how warm is it in day
    time, and how cold in night time ? Once I travelled there in May, and
    although day time was so sunny and warm, nigh time was so freezing
    cold, that I had to use three blankets to survive ! Kindly let me
    know.

    Secondly, how much time it will take to drive from Rishikesh to
    Gangotri, and how long to drive from Gangotri to Bhadrinath ? I’m
    planning to book a private car (like Tata Sumo).

    Thirdly, in case you know any good guest house (in Gangotri & in
    Bhadrinath) and their charges, I would be interested to hear of this
    also, in both these places. Could I book rooms through you ? Thank you
    so much for your attention, Hari Om,

    Johannes Kurki (Jaya Govinda das)

  8. Char Dham says:

    It will be great to see snow near all the dhams. After 2-3 weeks all the ice will melt due to heavy crowd of pilgrims.
