➩ Itinerary

Time: 10 hrs approx

We will start our journey from Haridwar. Travel to Joshimath will commence after all hikers are picked up at the Haridwar train station. We'll be picking people up from Rishikesh as well as the city of Badrinath on our way to Joshimath via the Badrinath road. The landscape you'll pass through your route to Joshimath will blow your mind. Don't forget to bring your camera so you can record these unforgettable experiences. Although while the 9-hour trip to Joshimath may leave you exhausted, keep in mind that you will never lack for stunning scenery. As we ascend, the river that parallels you on the other side will get wilder and more intriguing. You'll go via four of the Panchprayag, or five happy links of the Ganga, on your way to Joshimath: Devaprayag, Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag, and Nandaprayag. Now is the moment to get out your camera and sit back with wide eyes to catch some really breathtaking scenes of nature.

Around 22 kilometres separate Govindghat and Joshimath. Get up bright and early in the morning because you have a trip to Govindghat planned for right after breakfast. You will arrive to the last Vishnuptayag as you go down the path. We will arrive at Govindghat at about eight in the morning, and then go on to Pulna, which is located just four kilometres away from Govindghat. You should go ready for a challenging 9 kilometre race that includes crossing a creek called Pushpawati. Along this route, there are a number of little shops that sell delectable food items like as hot noodles, paratha, tea, omelettes with bread, and a variety of other similar dishes. As a result, you won't ever have to worry about being hungry. After we have arrived in Pulna, we will begin our walk to Ghangharia on a well-defined stone-paved route that is appropriately designed with steps. You will be arriving at Bhyundar village, after 5km of walking. This settlement is well-known for the breathtaking vista that it provides of the Hathi Parvat mountains in the distance. In addition to this, the path is well-known for providing stunning vistas of the breathtaking natural environment that the world around us has to offer. You will first be given a delicious lunch, and then you will continue on the trail, which will get somewhat more difficult. You will arrive in Ghangharia in the evening, but before the sun goes down, and have time to rest while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the enchanting locale. After you have reached Ghangharia, you will be at a height of 3,000 metres (10,000 feet). You will also get the opportunity to see several unique bird species that are exclusive to the region's mountainous terrain and can only be seen there. The guest home will serve as a gathering place for the hikers to unwind and spend the night throughout the evening.

Get up and eat breakfast by 7:00 in the morning, even if you have to get up early. The third day of our trip will be rather eventful since we will be hiking from Ghangaria to Valley of Flower and then back to Ghangaria again. This day will undoubtedly restock your recollections with some unforgettable and breathtaking perspectives of dreamland. The journey to Valley will allow you to feel the peace and tranquilly of nature away from the clamour and activity of city life. This is because Valley is a genuine natural beauty as well as the natural paradise of the world. From Ghangaria, the distance to the beginning of the hike is nearly 4 kilometres. The length of the valley is around 6-7 kilometres, and the distance that may be travelled inside the valley is going to be determined by the manner in which the trekkers choose to explore the valley. But, it will also be contingent on the stamina of those who are going on the walk. After you leave Ghangaria, the arrival of the forest check station will be after a period of thirty minutes. Despite the fact that you may not find the check post to be intriguing, there is a waterfall called the Laxman waterfall that is located just in front of the check post. After hiking for twenty minutes through the forest, visitors will reach the next point of interest. In this particular location, you will discover the Pushpavati river winding its way under the wooden bridge, providing a picture-perfect illustration of beauty. Even if it is rather common, there is still something special and captivating that you may catch with your camera. Like in times past, the path is both steep and stone-paved throughout its whole.

After a hearty breakfast, we will get started on our walk as soon as possible in order to get to the well-known holy site of Hemkund Sahib as quickly as possible. It is situated at a height that is both alpine and above the tree line at the same time. As a result of the large number of people that go to Hemkund Sahib in the hope of receiving blessings, the path that visitors use is not only quite broad but also very well marked. Along the path that leads from Ghangaria to Hemkund Sahib, there are a number of tea booths and dhabas that you may stop at. Along this route, when you get closer to an elevation of 4,000 metres, you will see that there are many Brahma Kamal flowers blooming. The ascent is unrelenting despite having just a little gradient. The journey to Hemkund Sahib is estimated to take between three and four hours to complete. You need to be aware that The Hemkund Sahib is regarded as the highest gurudwara in the world and is one of the most revered shrines for every Sikh.

Once you have breakfast in the morning, you will begin the descent to Govindghat, and then you will drive back to Joshimath to complete the journey. At this location, Badrinath is around 25 kilometres away and can be reached in one hour. If the conditions of the road and the weather allow us, Badrinath will also be on our itinerary. The fifth day of the walk will be spent travelling in the opposite direction of the previous days, from Ghangaria to Govindghat. The walk is not difficult at all, and it provides you with a stunning panorama of the surrounding landscape, which you probably did not even anticipate seeing. When we have arrived at Govindghat, we shall only go to Badrinath if the conditions of the route and the weather are favourable. The travel to Badrinath is very incredible since it provides a beautiful view of waterfalls as well as a river that is quite stunning.

Although it is the last day of the vacation, you should give it your all and try to savour every moment of it. We will start our journey back to Haridwar at six in the morning, with the goal of arriving there between six and seven in the evening. Only when you are in transit will you be offered breakfast in addition to lunch. Around 8 o'clock in the evening, all of the trekkers will be able to make their appointments for the ride back to their respective homes.

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.
