After breakfast, check out from the hotel and descend to Joshimath. Before proceeding to Badrinath, you will visit the ancient temple of Sri Narsingh Dev, a reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, which holds immense significance for Hindu devotees. Then, head for Badrinath (40 km, 1.5 hours), traversing through difficult yet picturesque terrain. Along this 40 km stretch, you will ascend from a height of 1800 meters to 3300 meters, surrounded by the imposing Himalayan peaks, offering breathtaking views. Check into a hotel in Badrinath, where you will stay for two nights.
The valley of Badrinath derives its name from the revered temple of Lord Vishnu, where he is worshipped as Badrinath. This temple is one of the four sacred shrines of Hindus worldwide. Surrounded by the Nar-Narayan peaks and crossed by the river Alaknanda, the valley exudes a serene charm. Throughout history, Badrinath has been a sanctuary for seekers of enlightenment. Challenging climatic conditions, particularly during winters, have limited the influx of devotees, creating an ideal environment for solitude seekers. In the evening, pay homage at the Badrinath temple, followed by dinner and an overnight stay at the hotel.
