Badrinath is the holy town and panchayat of Chamoli district in Uttarakhand . It is the one of the sites India's Char dham Pilgrimage and gets the name from the temple of Badrinath .
Badrinath temple is dedicated to our lord Vishnu .  Trip to Badrinath takes all about three days and it is all about 320 km from haridwar .

Day 1

At first we reached to Haridwar from New Delhi from Dehradun Shatabdi express at 6:45 am .it took approx 3.30 hrs to reach haridwar . Haridwar is famous for Mansa devi temple on a mountain, with the help of lift we reached up the mountain and worshipped, Well after worshipping at Mansa devi temple our journey started to Badrinath by car , we had booked one car same day from haridwar . Badrinath was all about 320km from haridwar in which it includes 20 km plane route and 300 km Zig Zag   and a dangerous and very risky mountains . We left haridwar at 6 am morning . While travelling to Badrinath at 10:30 am approx we had reached a town named Devprayag where the three rivers Ganges , Alakananda and bhagirathi river get merged ,Alakananda river is started from Badrinath , many people use to come and enjoy in the river . The Road was very risky , so many blind curve , stones were coming down from the mountains , worst condition . While near 2 pm one car was going in front of us nicely in very slow speed but suddenly a very big stone came from the mountain , the car was fully destroyed from his upper body , 5 people including driver got hurt but they were saved from an accident , as we got very scared on travelling on this route but after some hours we reached Joshimath town where we have done night stay and it was very cold place , we were very very tired that unable to stand and walk . It took I think all about 10 hrs to reach Joshimath . From here Badrinath was all about 44 km from Joshimath town . From Joshimath town we can see the ice on an mountain.

The view of Badrinath temple was very awesome . It was very much cold and not feeling well as that time . While going in the market I saw there was big kund which includes so much of hot water where people use to bath known by tapti khund . We worshipped at the temple which took all about 2 hrs , after worshipping we went to our last Indian village Mana . Saraswati river was started from Mana village . When we reached mana town I found that by entering in town that there is 47 km of mana town and to reached china border . You can see big mountains near India- China border .There wereso many spot in mana but I was unable to know about it . On the same day i think at 3 pm our journey started for coming back to the town , we started our journey all about to reach home from back , but we failed so to reach . So we stayed in Srinagar , it is an awesome place to live .
