  • Description

    Badrinath is one of the four Dhams; a devout Hindu has to visit in his lifetime to attain salvation. One of Hinduism's holiest sites, it was founded by Sri Shankaracharya, in the ninth century. The temple, also known as Badri Narayan, is dedicated to Vishnu, who is said to have done penance in the mythical Brindavan that once covered the mountains of Uttarakhand. <br />Known as 'Tapobhumi', a land of meditation and penance, and 'Bhubaikunth', heaven on earth, it is surrounded on either side, by two mountain ranges known as Nar and Narayan, with the Neelkanth peak, providing a spectacular backdrop. Facing the Badrinath temple is a hot water spring, known as 'Tapt Kund'. Other famous springs, here, are the Narad Kund and the Surya Kund. <br />Badrinath is presided over by a Namboothiri Brahman from Kerala, the Rawal, who also acts as the head priest for Kedarnath.<br />
  • Location

    Situated on the right banks of the river Alakananda in the northern province of Uttar Pradesh, Badrinath is couched within the two mountain ranges of Nar and Narayan, with the Neelkanth peak on the background. It is located in the northern district of Chamoli and the nearest cities are Rishikesh (300 km), Mussourie and Dehradun.
Tapt Kund, Surya Kund, Narad KundOn the banks of the river Alaknanda, are many natural hot water springs, where people bathe before they enter the temples.
Mana VillageThe Mana village is the last village of India on the Indo-Tibet border hardly 3 kms away fro Badrinath. Set up by the Indo-Mongolian tribe, this village has a population of 200 people only. These hardworking people live a dual family life when half the year they stay in mountains and half of it they spend on the plains. The people have kept alive their age old tradition and culture and hardly mix with the others. Earlier this tribe used to have their own trade relations with Tibet, but not anymore due to the strained relationship of the both the countries.
Bheem BridgeA short distance from Mana Village stands a natural bridge made of a huge boulder over the River Saraswati. Legend goes that Bheem, one of the Pandava brothers put it there. The view of this extraordinary bridge and the din of the flowing river makes this place interesting.
Vasudhara Falls5 km after Bheem Bridge is this astonishingly high waterfall, which is very attractive. The most interesting aspect is that due to its high fall the water descending down gets vapourised giving an impact as if Goddess Ganges is descending down from the heavens.
Satopanth LakeSatopanth Lake is 18 km from Mana Village amidst the difficult areas of Himalayas. The water in the lake is very calm. On the banks of this lake are innumerable lotus flowers. To get here one has to come via Lakshmi Forest. To return from here to Badrinath on foot it takes 3 days.
PandukesarPandukesar 20 km from Badrinath, this is a memorial for the Pandavas. Two temples here have intricate carvings. This village is quite big. During the season one finds huge crowds here.
Govind GhatThis is 2 km before Pandukesar and is the gateway for the Hem Kund Lake and the internationally well-known Valley of the Flowers. The Hem Kund Saheb is 20 km by foot from here. There we find a Sikh Temple and some hotels. The Valley of the Flowers is a 17 km walk.
Hanuman Chatti13 km before Badrinath this temple is situated in a village. Nearby is a nursery of the rare birch tree.
Kheerau ValleyAs soon as you cross the bridge on the Alaknanda River from Hanuman Chatti to Benakuli, this extremely beautiful valley comes into view. 4 km from here is the Kheerau village where the local people stay for 4-5 months. Many other interesting spots are there about the village like Tatapani, Unyani Lake etc.
Kagbhushandi LakeOn the Valley of Flowers Road, a 20 km trek from a village called Bhyundar is a vast lake, the beauty of which is amazing. Since getting here is very difficult, very few tourists are found here.
Joshimath42 km from Badrinath this place is set to have been visited in the 18th century by Shankaracharya from the state of Kerala. He meditated here and founded a Mutt called Jyotir math or Joshimath. Here orchards of apples, apricots, peaches and lemon have to be seen to be believed. Many hotels and tourist bungalows are available to stay.
