We will drive along the Ganga and Alaknanda rivers to reach Auli, from Haridwar and though the drive is long, it is quite interesting as we will drive through the holy towns of Rishikesh, Rudra Prayag and Dev Prayag. Overnight stay in tents, at Auli.
An early morning hour long drive will take us to Govindghat, from where we will start our trek by first crossing the river Alaknanda by a bridge at Govindghat. Next, we will start walking through lush forest areas and a few villages, towards the Bhyundar valley. Lush green landscape and cascading waterfalls will greet us on our first day of trekking as we embark on a 14 km moderate gradient trek to Ghanghria which will take about 4-5 hours. One can also use helicopter service of hire a mule to reach Ghanghria. Overnight stay in tents.
This is the day we will make the much anticipated short ascent to the valley and we promise the valley will not disappoint. Its peaceful and soothing landscape will strike a chord with your heart and you will be able to witness what unperturbed nature, really is like. Sprawling green meadows, decorated with diverse alpine flowers and happy little streams flowing by – all with the picturesque mountains all around. The Ratban Parvat greets you at the entrance of the valley, to the left if the Nar Parvat which separates the Badrinath valley and the valley of flowers. We will spend 3-4 hours basking in the mind-numbing beauty of the valley, after which we will head back to our camp at Ghangria.
Today’s trek will be to Hemkund Sahib, a famous Sikh Shrine, next to a placid lake which is surrounded by wildflowers. The climb is steep at places and will take us 3-4 hours. Pilgrims often take a dip in the freezing cold water of the lake, which is a difficult task. However, the hot tea served in the Gurudwara afterwards is divine. We will also visit the Laxman Mandir, next to the Gurudwara and then head back to Ghangria. Overnight stay in tents.
A trek back to Govindghat and a short drive from there will take us to the temple town of Badrinath. Whether you are spiritually inclined or not, the temple, situated on the banks of holy Alaknanda, under the presence of the Neelkanth peak is a peaceful place to visit. Adding to that beauty are the hot sulphur water springs!
