Badrinath Tourism, India 2020 (50 Tours & Activities)

Amongst the four holy “Dhams” of Hindus, Badrinath is famous for its temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

From great tasting vegetarian food to long trails covered with snow, Badrinath is a place you must definitely visit for an experience of a lifetime. 

Located at an elevation of almost 10,170 feet above sea level, the breathtaking city of Badrinath lies between the Nar and Narayan mountain range in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. This popular pilgrim destination attracts thousands of tourists every year.

While some of these are pilgrims, others are simply tourists who wish to explore the city. It is also one of the most scenic places in the state, surrounded by several gushing rivers and snow-capped mountains on all sides.

Other than the famous Badrinath Temple, the city has many places which one should definitely visit whilst on a holiday here. One such place is the Tapt Kund. It is a natural thermal spring, wherein the water has medicinal properties.

You can also visit Neelkanth, a place which is covered with snow all year round. The Nanda Devi National Park is also located here in Badrinath, where you can catch a glimpse of several rare and exotic flora and fauna. You can also visit Mana, located at the Indo-China Border, and enjoy a cup of tea at the last shop here. 

Some of the activities which travellers can enjoy in Badrinath are skiing, trekking, and camping among others. You can also trek to the base of the Nilkantha Peak, which is said to receive the first rays of the sun every day at dawn and offers a splendid backdrop to Badrinath Temple.

This was a really great trek. We got the chance to see Ganges and Alaknanda river while travelling from Haridwar and Rishikesh. Our trek was stared on 2nd day and we got to see the amazing sights of Nanda Devi which is India second highest peak. The trekking experience was fun despite being tedious. Apart from the weather, the trek was indeed an enjoyable experience. Everything was well arranged from transportation to food. Would love to go for more treks in Himalayan region.

the most difficult trek of all time for me. The himalayan terrain is too difficult to trek. so if you are going for the first time for trekking, i would recommend that you go on some of the normal treks and then try this one. But it is one unforgettable trek I had. really had a chilling and amazing time.

We started from Haridwar where our pickup was ready. After crossing Rishikesh we reached our destination. We stayed in a decent lodge and I was mesmerized by the snow caped views of Himalayas. Next day we trekked to a beautiful village and reaches Auli. In Auli we went for the cable car ride and reached top point of our trek. Cable Car experience was amazing as we can see the snow covered mountains from the top. We trekked for 3 days and passed some of the beautiful and remote villages. Food was ok and iur guide give attention to every member of the group. This was first group trek and would recommend others this trek. Thanks for amazing trip.

Skiing Basic Course, Auli: This is a paradise for the avid skiers. While you are an avid skier like me, go ahead and take it, you will not regret it. However, if you are new to skiing the if might be a little tough although this is a basic course. The Auli skiing course centre is located in Garhwal range of Himalays. This is almost about a 250km drive away from Haridwar. We reached here from Rishikesh which was 320km from here. The best part about Auli is that it offered us with immense opportunities to indulge in skiing. Thanks to its high altitude ranging between 2500m to around 3000m! The Skii trip overlooks the majestic peaks of Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dronagiri.

Had an amazing experience. All around me was just snow and nothing. Though they have the fixed trails, but because of the high quantity of snow, it was very difficult to find out the trails as everything was covered with snow. But we really enjoyed alot. The food was very delicious during the trek. I recommend that you carry alot of woolen clothes on trek.
