    Me and my Wife recently made the Char Dham Yatra starting from New Delhi on 7th Oct. and completed on 20th Oct. We had a wonderful time and were able to experience the beautiful un-spoilt Natural beauty of Uttarakhand. All the darshans, especially Kedarnath and Badrinath went off without a hitch. I want to specially thank our tour Manager Sri.S.Krishna for being our friend and guide for these 15days. His organization of the tour, inspite of the early morning calls were very useful and enabled us to reach our destinations early and without rush hour traffic and have unhurried darshans at many shrines. The support staff also need to be much appreciated; excellent driving by the Drivers; timely and tasty meals cooked by the culinary staff and the arduous but efficient loading and unloading of the many and heavy luggage. Thank you Anandvihari for a wonderful experience. ...more
