5. Watch the sangam of rivers at Devprayag, Vishnuprayag, Rudraprayag, Karnprayag, nandaprayag. (Lot of movies have been shot at these places like kisna ) and a dip in river too.
6. Darshan of Vridha badri which is between joshimath and peepalkoti.
Enjoying the drive, we reached Badrinath during lunch time and checked into our hotel.If anybody wants to have this budget trip, then ashram and math are there which varies from 500-2000 per night charges. these provide hot water, and warm rooms to rest.
We chose to stay at sarovar portico. This hotel is unconventional at a place like Badrinath. It is not near the temple, hence, car is needed to reach the temple. One can choose the math and ashram from where the temple is walking distance.
The rooms were very comfortable with electric heating system on mattress of the bed. whole day continuous hot water and very comfortable stay was ensured to us.
Since the weather was very cold,we chose to stay in hotel and relax. we went for darshan at night called as shayan darshan. special ticket is taken for the same. After that we enjoyed food and street shopping in the area.
next day early morning we also did mangla aarti darshan. You will get special parshad for this. I waited for this (My main intention).
after some hot and yummy breakfast at the hotel, we planned to leave.
