Leaving Delhi’s so pure environment behind for a while (Sarcasm Alert), I reach this beautiful town in Uattrakhand called Rudraprayag which is my native place. A beautiful place among the Panch-Prayags in garhwal region, where confluence of two rivers (Mandakini & Alaknanda) take place.
After a cup of tea and some snacks I enrouted towards Joshimath. Joshimath is a town in chamoli district, covering beautiful and giant mountains.
SO HOW TO REACH THERE?
Although I hired a cab for my entire journey but one can take local buses and shared jeeps that would drop you at your destination. On my previous journey to Badrinath, I took a bus from Rudraprayag to Gauchar, and then those shared sumos (taxi) from Gauchar to Chamoli, Then another cab from Chamoli to Joshimath. (You can take the direct bus from Rudraprayag although, its time saving. However why I didn’t because I wanted to stop by each place and discover a little.)
It took me around four & a half hour to reach Joshimath.
Joshimath is a tinsel town in Chamoli. It’s basically a small market and a gateway towards several Himalayan mountains climbing expeditions, trekking trails and of course pilgrim centres like Badrinath.
