DAY 01

Rishikesh - Badrinath

  • Drive to Badrinath. (10-hour drive)

  • Reach Mana early in the day. This is the last village within the Indian border. 

  • Get your permits checked and proceed with the trek.

  • Head in the direction of Vasundhara Falls. 

  • Pass Saraswati temple. From here, the gradient of the trail becomes increasingly steep. 

  • Continue to walk with the Alaknanda River flowing below you. The valley is incredibly green during monsoon. Around 2-3 hours later, begin to hear the sound of water plunging down from 400 ft. 

  • Reach Vasundhara Fall, which is known for its scientifically-proven medicinal value. 

  • Tread through the rich birch forests of Laxmiban. 

  • Take a 4 km of moraine walk and reach the campsite of Laxmiban. (5-6 hours)

DAY 03
