The Bharat Jodo Yatra will cover 3,570 km over a period of 150 days. While a majority of this distance will be covered on foot by the Bharat Yatris, including Rahul Gandhi, there are some portions that require a vehicle. This is largely due to two reasons:

  1. Portions of the route traverse through protected areas like wildlife reserves and forests such as the Bandipur National Park in the Western Ghats. In order to maintain the sanctity of these areas and ensure both nature & wildlife are not disturbed, we must cover the distance by vehicle.
  2. The night camp sites need about 2 acres of land to accommodate for food, security and accommodation for about 250 Yatris and support teams. These sites are not always available within the daily 20-25 km walking route of the padayatra, and therefore require a vehicle for the additional distance.
The Padyatra which started on 7th September, 2022 from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu will culminate in Kashmir and cover 12 states through its path.
