OYO to double the number of hotels for Char Dham Yatra 2023 pilgrimage

OYO, the global travel technology company, has announced its plan to double the number of hotels available for the Char Dham Yatra 2023, a spiritual pilgrimage of four sacred shrines nestled high up in the Himalayas. The move is aimed to offer pilgrims a comfortable, reliable, and affordable place to stay throughout their journey. Presently, OYO has 40 hotels across Rishikesh, Haridwar, Srinagar, Kedarnath, Joshimath, and Uttarkashi, which will be doubled to 80 hotels. As per the Uttarakhand government, 1.6 million devotees have already registered for this year’s Yatra, and the number is expected to increase in the coming months. OYO has also observed a 206% increase in bookings for the Char Dham Yatra compared to the same period last year, with Srinagar taking the lead as the most booked destination, followed by Rishikesh and Haridwar.

An OYO spokesperson said, “The Char Dham Yatra holds immense significance for devotees across the world. However, the adverse weather conditions often disrupt it, sometimes even leading to its suspension for days. We are committed to making the journey easier and more comfortable for pilgrims. By doubling the number of properties available for the yatra, we want to ensure that pilgrims have access to affordable, comfortable, and reliable accommodation throughout their journey.”
