The divine journey to Char Dham is approximately of 12 days - 11 nights. The first day is when you have to travel till haridwar, which is about 210 kms and about 4 – 5 hrs of drive.
On arrival you could choose to halt at one of the hotels, the Hotel Haveli Hari Ganga is the sole hotel that comes with its own Ghat and is considered a pretty cool place to unwind.
In the evening if you are not too tired, you could choose to go and check out one of the most popular places, Har Ki Pauri.This won’t take more than 3 to 4 hours and you could drive back till the hotel for a full fledged dinner.
The second day will be slightly more tiring as you have to travel from Haridwar to all the way till Barkot and that is round about 230kms which is again about 7 - 8 hours
