Rishikesh: The Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand this year will be conducted from two places in Rishikesh and one in Haridwar, and a fleet of 1,300-1,700 buses will be available to devotees visiting the Himalayan shrines, an official said on Saturday.

Dehradun’s Divisional Transport Officer Sunil Sharma made the announcement after a meeting with transporters on the Chardham Yatra.

He said the pilgrimage will be operated from three places: the Interstate Bus Terminal and the ARTO office here and Pant Island in Haridwar.

The Chardham Yatra will begin on April 22 with the opening of the gates of the Gangotri and Yamunotri shrines.
