In order to attract tourists and nature enthusiasts, the Uttarakhand Government will launch a Modi Trail from the next season of Char Dham Yatra. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has popularised few offbeat destinations over the years, and now the Uttarakhand Government is taking a step to make these tourist spots more accessible to travellers. For those of you who don’t know, the Char Dham Yatra is a spiritual journey to pilgrimage sites in India. The sites are Badrinath, Dwaraka, Puri and Rameswaram and visiting these sites is considered holy for Hindus.
What’s In It?
According to reports, the Modi Trail would be connecting the popular PM Modi meditation abode, Rudra Cave in Kedarnath to the Corbett National Park where he filmed a wildlife documentary, Man v/s Wild with the famous British TV adventurous host, Bear Grylls. The tourism department is looking at possibilities and options to connect these spots from Ramnagar to Kedarnath via Dehradun.
