Dehra Dun: After remaining suspended for two days due to landslides triggered by heavy rains, the 'Chardham Yatra' in the Garhwal Himalayas resumed today.

All the routes leading to the four shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri were cleared from landslides that struck at a number of places.

The routes have been reopened for vehicular traffic, the Disaster Management and Mitigation Centre (DMMC) said.

The Chardham Yatra remained suspended for two days due to landslides following heavy rains leaving hundreds of pilgrims stranded at various places. However, the administration had made adequate arrangements for them.

Meanwhile, most parts of the state had bright sunshine today after moderate to rather heavy rains in the past several days.
