During a walk down the roads of the historic ranges of Shivalik Himalayas, the feeling of visiting a parallel world will breathe across your brain. From the leftmost sight to the rightmost one, every inch of your vision would explore the uniqueness of the state. The feeling of breathing in the cold air of Uttaranchal and breathing out the bleakness of your monotonous life is synonymous to a beautiful reverie. How does a hot coffee over the cold air feel? Just as blissful as a salary day bank statement. The best places to experience it are in the best towns on the lap of Himalayas. Visiting across the temples of Char Dham –
Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamunotri and Gangotri – will bring you the peace of mind unlike any other meditation. The history connected to these places will bring you close to the roots of your culture unlike any book. As you drive over the narrow roads of the mountains, the giant mountains will make you feel embraced. When you glance down the roads of the valley, a sense of new-found freedom fills in your veins.
The trek of holy Char Dham yatra in Uttaranchal is not just a rage amongst old-aged people as the youth are starting to understand its exciting features. Every pillar of the town has a history that speaks of our ancient mythology. Even an atheist would experience the presence of God in the course of his visit. Each passing day will make your heart yearn for some more days in the ranges. However, if you’re planning to skip the trekking part then we have an option sorted for you.

At dusk, we will stay at Kedarnath for dinner and a peaceful night’s sleep.
Day 09: Guptkashi - Badrinath
The town of Badrinath got its name from the abundance of Berry trees (known as Badri in English). It is believed that when Buddhism was established, the Tibetians attacked the holy temple of Badrinath and threw away the idol of Lord Vishnu in Narak kund. Later, Adi Shankaracharya brought it in Garud Gufa and placed it there. The king of Gadwalis later made this place into a temple which is now visited by pilgrims across the world. Lord Vishnu is worshiped in this temple as Lord Badrinarayan. Situated in between the Nar and Narayana mountains, Badrinath temple will make you embrace the positivity of our own Indian culture right from its roots.
