Joshimath – the gateway to Badrinath Dham

The town of Joshimath lies close to Badrinath Dham. This temple of Lord Vishnu is one of the four pilgrimage sites in the Uttarakhand Char Dham Yatra. Joshimath is the ideal place to stay for those who are undertaking the Chota Char Dham Yatra in Uttarakhand.

If you are planning to go on the Valley of Flowers Trek then Joshimath is the base of the trek. Joshimath is an immensely holy town and this is so because Adi Shankaracharya established one of the four peeths here in Joshimath.

The monsoon season is not at all ideal to visit Joshimath. There are heavy rains and danger of landslides here, so driving is not at all advisable.
