A glimpse into the realm of the most important of the Char Dham expedition

Yes I am talking about the most important sites of the Char Dham Yatra,i.e Badrinath which attracts millions of pilgrims across India and the world throughout the year.The only abode of Lord Vishnu stationed in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand is a matter of pride for the country.The Vishnu temple of Badrinath cornered in the Garhwal Himalayas of the Chamoli district has lots of stories and myths attached to it.

The Nar-Narayana mountain ranges which symbolically represent the dual form of Vishnu is proliferated across the shrine of Badrinath.The Neelkantha peak adds flavor to the charisma with its ‘blue’ and ‘elevated’ advent and presence.Five kilometres from Badrinath also takes us to the last village of India which is known as Mana and lot of Garhwali inhabitants dwell in the area.

The most important imperative is the Alaknanda river,a tributary of the river Ganga that flows across the region spreading its elegance and magnetism.The road to reach Badrinath is one of the deadliest roads of the world with a 51 kilometers one way travel blockage from Joshimath due to the narrowness of the crossroad.The presence of mammoth snow clad peaks on the way makes the journey even more exciting and dangerous.
