Dehradun: The pilgrimage to major Hindu
shrines in Uttarakhand which has been affected due to bad
weather and landslides during the last fortnight, resumed
today with the opening of roads leading to them.

"The pilgrimage to Gangotri and Yamunotri was suspended
after landslides triggered by heavy rains damaged roads at
several places in Uttarkashi district. The vehicular traffic
resumed on these roads today," official sources said.

Earlier, the Badrinath yatra was resumed on Thursday,
while the Kedarnath yatra on Wednesday.

Border Roads Organisation and police helped clear rubble
