Badrinath- Lord of the berries, is situated in the Garhwal Mountain Range on the banks of the river Alaknanda in Uttarakhand, stands as a testimony to the Hindu scriptures and legendary stories.
One of the most important pilgrimages, Badrinath or Badrikashram has Lord Vishnu in dual form of Nara and Narayana who personify the body and soul relationship. Badrinath also is surrounded by many mountain peaks like Nilkantha which attract many adventure enthusiasts from across the globe. Often visited as one of the places in a Char Dham Yatra Package, Badrinath is indeed a place to explore nature to satisfy the spiritual and adventure thirst.
Badrinath Dham is also renowned as the place where Pandavas started their journey towards heaven and where Sage Vyasa wrote the epic-Mahabharata.
If you want to visit a place with family where everyone gets to do something of their interest, then mark this place. Badrinath Yatra is a holy tour in itself as one can visit places of worship, Ekadashi Gufa, Mana which consists of Ganesh-Guha-the place where Lord Ganesh wrote the epic Mahabharata, Vyasa-Guha – Vyasa sat in this cave to dictate Mahabharata to Ganesh, interestingly via telepathy, Bhim-pul - a bridge constructed by Bhim to aid the crossing of the river Alaknanda, Bhim- Shila- the place Pandavas chose to ascend towards heaven ,and many more places with interesting stories behind.
Badrinath is a small town with good facilities available. Food and accommodation is well taken care of and the place offers a very rustic yet charming view filled with white mountain peaks and green vegetation adding more elegance and beauty. With a vintage like experience, Badrinath fills us with clean air and freshens up the body.
This summer, head towards Badrinath via Haridwar. Since Haridwar offers well connected routes, opt for our Haridwar to Badrinath Taxi Service which takes about 7 hours with a distance of 323 Km to complete. It is a surreal experience indeed!
