Places to visit in Maana village are ganesh gufa, vyas gufa, bheem pul and also 5 km trek called vasundhara.
Vyasa Gufa- It believe that Veda Vyasa lived here and write four Vedas and Mahabharata here.
Mana to Satopanth track is a difficult which is a 16km track.
12 November 2020 was our last day of trip because we had to go home because of diwali on 14 November 2020 so after Maana village we headed to Auli.
We reached joshimath to catch cable car for Auli because vehicles cannot go till auli so you have two options, one can go 16 km by car and catch cable car which covers 800 meter distance till Auli by paying 500 rs per person or reach joshimath and catch cable car by paying 1000 rs per person and covers 4.5 km distance in 30 minutes.
After reaching there we had to wait for 2 more persons because cable car only run with 6 persons so we had no option because we were 4 only.
When we were waiting person who issues ticket told us that going to Auli is not good plan because its more beautiful in winter and Also we have less time so he advised to come in winter or go for trekking if want to experience Auli beauty.
So we cancelled cable car ride plan and started our journey to final destination which was haridwar and took our last halt in night at hotel by paying 800 rs and that hotel was worst we stayed in Uttarakhand.
Next day on 13 November 2020 started journey to haridwar and took halt at rishikesh where our 2 friends did river rafting paying 650 rs each person but me and imran skip it because we have done it before so we took a walk to laxman jhula and ram jhula.
Finally on our way to haridwar we dropped imran at rishikesh bus stand because he was going to mussorie.
After reaching haridwar we said good bye and happy diwali to each other and took different buses to our hometown due to cancellation of trains.
On the way to these we also visited panch prayag=
The Panch Prayag of Uttarakhand traces the route carved by Alaknanda River when it leaves its Himalayan abode from Satopanth glacier.
It is joined by Dhauliganga River at Vishnuprayag, near Joshimath.
Nandaprayag is the second confluence in cascading sequence, where Alaknanda River is joined by Nandakini River.
The third confluence of Alaknanda River is at Karnaprayag, where the tragic hero of Mahabharata, Karna, did penance to please Sun God.
Here, Pindar River joins Alaknanda.
Rudraprayag is the fourth confluence between Alaknanda and Mandakini River.
The fifth and final union takes place at Devprayag where Alaknanda River joins Bhagirathi forming river Ganges, which flows down to the plains.
Journey ended but memory remains forever.
Total cost from hometown to hometown we spend 12000 rs per person including everything.

1-The hotel facility we felt not good most of the places because they switch off geezer from main switch at reception without telling.
2-Food was okay okay.
3-At Kedarnath, hotel facilities were very bad as compared to the price paid.
4-In this pandemic situation nobody at any place checked temperature or mask.
5-people in rishikesh and haridwar were roaming freely without masks.
6-Driver told us that due to corona there are very less people so we are lucky that it took very very less time for darshan at all temples.
