Part of the 'Chaar Dhaam' Yatra, Yamunotri is one of the most spiritual places in India. Vedic philosophy and hindu ideologies are the way of the life. Long treks have brought people from different states together and serve one ultimate spiritual objective. The entire valley looks like a never ending procession of merry pilgrims during the 'yatras'. Piety, spirituality, and religion are held in high regards, as is the symbolic bath as Yamuna is the sister of Yama, the Lord of Death; taking a dip in Yamuna is considered to assure one of painless death.
