How To Choose The Best Chardham Yatra Package?
Chardham Yatra is a sacred journey, and the four adobes are situated in hard-to-reach places. Furthermore, you must choose a Chardham Yatra Package from a reliable one that covers all the Yatra’s essential aspects, including VIP Darshans, accommodations, clean and well-maintained cars, helicopters, etc. Here is how you can choose the best Chardham Yatra package.
Compare places, transportation modes, and time to travel
The Chardham Yatra is a tedious journey that needs significant time to cover the holy temples. Generally, if you opt for helicopter services, the travel packages may be between 5-6 days; if you choose by road, it may take 10-12 days. Further, the packages also include bus/helipad drops and pickups, good accommodation, and meals.
So it is best to research and compare all the abovementioned factors and rates before choosing any package. Further, don’t approach the first travel agent you come across and don’t settle for low-budget tour operators. Additionally, ask about the various places to visit included in your package apart from the four shrines.
Don’t settle for the label
Don’t assume that tours marked as “budget,” “traveler,” or “basic” are always more affordable than the company’s standard vacations. These ‘cheaper’ alternatives are occasionally employed as a gimmick to increase market share among travelers. If you look attentively, you could discover that the regular journey is more cost-effective. So always the regular packages.
The majority of travel agencies advertise their holiday packages without necessary taxes. Always ask for a full price that covers all the expenditure categories, such as lodging, transportation, meals, entry fees, and guide fees, in addition to the tax components. Ensure all these factors are considered when evaluating the offers based on pricing. Further, compare these prices with other tour agents.
Customization of your travel schedule
Carefully review the itinerary included in your vacation package. Make sure you have enough time to visit each location you want to see and visit all of them. Additionally, ask your tour guide if you could add any additional locations you’d like to see, then add those to your list. Since the places in Uttarakhand are not easily accessible by roads and you may need to trek, you may need to add more days. Or you don’t wish to cover other places except for the Dhams, so the days get subtracted from your package. So make sure that the price is appropriately updated.
Take into account the size of the group and the bare minimum of travelers needed to start the trip. Also, find out if you’ll be traveling alone or in a group with others trying to complete the same journey.
