After two years of disruption due to the pandemic, the Char Dham Yatra this year has seen an overwhelming response from pilgrims. Visuals from places along the routes show huge crowds as well as parking spaces filled to the brim with private vehicles. However, there was also a massive downside. With the Uttarakhand government doing away with mandatory medical tests, many pilgrims who may not have been fully fit for undertaking the arduous journey also took to the Yatra, resulting in at least 23 pilgrims dying in just the first 10 days of the Yatra.
