Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra

Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra is one amongst the most pious of the Hindu Pilgrimage tours in Uttarakhand state of India.Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra commences from Delhi, the capital city of India and proceeds to Haridwar.

Next leg of the Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra also known as Do Dham Yatra takes the pilgrims to Guptkashi, a small hill town which is considered as the gateway to Shri Kedarnath Shrine.Guptkashi is also important as most of the Helipads for Shri Kedarnath are located either in Guptkashi or in Phata which is just about 15 Kms ahead on the road head from Guptkashi.

Pilgrims on the Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra, may take a helicopter ride from Guptkashi / Phata to Kedarnath (for which pre-booking of helicopter tickets is required and can be arranged by Waytoindia.com) , or trek to Shri Kedarnath Shrine from Gaurikund.

After Darshan at Shri Kedarnath Shrine, the Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra proceeds to Badrinath Dham, which is one of the four Hindu pilgrimage centres established by Adi Guru Shankracharya, others being Dwarkadhish, Jagannath & Rameshwaram in western India, eastern India and southern India respectively.

Itinerary Details

Day by Day itineraryDay 1: Drive Delhi to Haridwar (220 km. in 5 hr.)

The National Capital Region of Delhi, which shares close proximity with Badrinath and Kedarnath, is the starting point of your Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra tour. Our tour representative would pick up from New Delhi airport/railway station and the drive to Haridwar begins.

About Haridwar: Call it Haridwar (Gateway to Lord Vishnu) or Hardwar (Gateway to Lord Shiva), this holy town is one of River Ganga’s most pampered destinations to experience spirituality. Along with the nearby town of Rishikesh, it hails Ganga’s first appearance on the Great Northern Plains as the might river descends from Himalayas. There are temples (alongside river and on hilltops), ashrams, museums, ropeway rides and a wonderful opportunity to worship Ganga which is no less than a lucky charm before you embark on the actual journey.

On arrival, check in at the booked hotel and take rest. Later, you would visit Har ki Pauri, the sacred spot where few drops of amrit (holy nectar) fell, according to the Hindu mythology. Here, you can take a holy dip in Ganga, collect the sacred water in a container and attend the breathtaking Ganga aarti (timings around 06:00 p.m.; better to reach at least an hour in advance to grab a good spot). If time allows, you may visit some of the popular temples like Mansa Devi Temple and Chandi Devi Temple (located on a hill, accessible by ropeway; combined ticket of INR 257; ride available till 06:00 p.m.).

Get back to the hotel at night. Overnight stay at Haridwar.

Day 2: Drive Haridwar to Guptkashi (207 km. in about 8 hr.)

Leave for Guptakashi in the early morning. You would be driving through the scenic towns of Devprayag, Srinagar and Rudraprayag, unveiling some heavenly vistas like river confluences, thick forests and mesmerizing views of the Himalayas.

About Guptkashi: As per the legend, it is the town where Shiva disappeared into the ground to avoid meeting the Pandavas after the bloodshed of Mahabharata. Located in the beautiful Mandakini Valley within the Kedar Khand (region which is home to five Shiva shrines, including Kedarnath), the place has its atmosphere filled with sweet fragrances of magnolia trees. The visitors are rendered speechless by the hypnotic views of Chaukhamba Peak from here.

On arrival, check in at the booked hotel and take rest. Later, you can visit the top attractions like Vishwanath Temple which resembles the world-famous temple by the same name in Varanasi. It is believed to be the place where Shiva proposed Parvati for wedding. Marnikarnika Kund, which is believed to be fed by two springs representing the holy rivers Ganga and Yamuna, is another attraction. Ardhanareeshwara Temple where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the half-man half-woman form along with Parvati is yet another must-visit place during Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra.

Finally return to your hotel for overnight stay.

Day 3: Day 03: Drive to Phata Helipad (about 11 km.) – Fly to Kedarnath (about 8 min. ride) – Fly Back to Phata – Drive Back to Guptkashi

Get up early in the morning and drive to Phata Helipad (timings would depend on the booking). Fly to Kedarnath Helipad from where you would walk for about 5-7 min. to reach the holy shrine.

About Kedarnath: Kedarnath is the place where hump of Lord Shiva (disguised as a bull) appeared from the ground after he eloped at Guptkashi while avoiding the Pandavas. It is also believed that Shiva married Parvati here. At the height of about 11,660 ft., the town boasts of heavenly grandeur with gigantic glaciers, pretty lakes, roaring cascades and sprawling meadows in the close vicinity of the main temple.

Visit the Kedarnath Temple which houses an ancient conical Shiva Lingam (one of the 12 Jyotirlingas) and idols of several Hindu deities and has River Mandakini flowing nearby. If time allows (and if you plan an overnight stay), you may visit other attractions like Bhairavnath Temple. It is dedicated to the fierce Bhairav form of Shiva, who is believed to protect the main temple. Another attraction is Gaurikund, a sacred pond with a hot water spring and a temple dedicated to Parvati. It is believed that Parvati performed penance here to please Shiva.

Board the helicopter back to Phata and drive back to Guptkashi for the night stay.

Day 4: Drive Guptkashi to Badrinath (200 km. in about 8 hr.)

Start at the earliest from Guptkashi to reach Badrinath. You would be driving through the beautiful and thrilling ghat roads, with extraordinary visual treat unveiling at every inch.

About Badrinath: Badrinath, at the height of about 10,300 ft. is believed to be the place where Lord Vishnu is meditating in the form of Nara and Narayana since time immemorial. It is also believed that the Pandavas, on their way to heaven, spent some time here. Resting near the divine River Alaknanda is the Badrinath Temple which houses a black idol of Vishnu. As per the belief, it is made of the shaligram stone found from Alaknanda. One can spend hours admiring the beauty of the sky-touching Neelkantha and other peaks.

On arrival, check in at the booked hotel and take some rest. Later, visit the temple for darshan and feel blessed. Overnight stay at Badrinath.

Day 5: Badrinath Sightseeing

In the morning of the fifth day of Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra, you would visit the main temple once again and you may also attend the various rituals. Depending on the time available, you may visit other holy places like Tapt Kund. The hot spring water of the pond is believed to be divine as well as therapeutic and some devotees consider it auspicious to bath in it before entering the main shrine.

Another attraction is Narad Kund from where the stone used for Lord Vishnu’s idol is believed to have been recovered. Charan Paduka is the site where one can find on a rock the imprints believed to be of Lord Vishnu’s feet. The holy caves called Ganesh Gufa and Vyas Gufa are believed to be the places where the great epic Mahabharata was written.

You may also visit the village of Mana (the last Indian village near the international Indo-Tibetan boundary) which is about 4 km. away. On the way, you can stop at Bheema Pul, a natural bridge believed to have been formed by Bheema, the strongest of the Pandava brothers. Vasudhara Falls is a beautiful vista and it is believed that its water moves away from those with impure and sinful hearts.

Return to the hotel for the night stay.

Day 6: Drive Badrinath to Rudraprayag (167 km. in about 6 hr.)

Leave Badrinath to drive to Rudraprayag, one of the popular stops on Badrinath Kedarnath Yatra. You would again be passing through some of the lovely towns like Chamoli, Joshimath and Karanprayag.

About Rudraprayag:The place holds significance as it is the witness to the grand confluence between River Mandakini and River Alaknanda. Historically, the place earned fame when the famous author Jim Corbett hunted the man-eating leopard of Rudraprayag.

On arrival, check in at the booked hotel and take rest. Later, you may visit the sacred places like Rudranath Temple. It is believed to be the place where Narada learnt music from Rudra (a form of Lord Shiva). Koteshwar Mahadev Temple is yet another Shiva Temple. The interesting natural cave temple is believed to be the place where Shiva meditated for years. Finally, get back to the hotel for night stay.

Day 7: Drive Rudraprayag to Rishikesh (133 km. in about 5 hr.)

As you descend further, drive to Rishikesh, a holy town which has gained international attention for more than one reason. On the way, you would have lunch at Srinagar and visit the town of Devprayag (only if the time allows). Devprayag is yet another holy town where River Alaknanda meets River Bhagirathi to finally form River Ganga.

About Rishikesh: The World Capital of Yoga, a celebrated rafting and adventure destination and home to a number of well-known ashrams, Rishikesh is one of the top tourist places in the whole of India. One can indulge in the activities like camping alongside Ganga, kayaking, trekking, rock climbing, flying fox and other daring adventures here.

On Arrival, check in at the booked hotel and take rest. Later, you may visit the interesting wooden bridge called Lakshmana Jhula, built over Ganga and named after Lakshmana from Ramayana. If time allows, visit temples or attend the evening aarti of Ganga. Spend night at the hotel.

  We both were a bit nervous at the thought of dealing with India direct but all was very well planned, Mohit saw us through the hole tour and it was faultless, the palaces were fantastic colonial throw backs in time, we had a fantastic time, thanks to our guide who never left us in any position that we felt uncomfortable.an unforgeable time was had by both of us, thank you.   Graham Leslie
  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee
  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

Overall it was a memorable trip customized by Way2india for us. Thanks to Ankit.
