Itinerary

Day 1. Haridwar-Joshimath-Auli: 269 km/ 8 Hours

On this day, leave for Auli, the picturesque destination for 360 degrees views of mountain peaks. On the way halt for a photographic session at Dev Prayag, Rudra Prayag, Karan Prayag, and Nand Prayag.
Dev Prayag: The confluence of river Bhagirathi and Alakananda. Bhagirathi originates from Gaumukh, 18 km from Gangotri, and Alaknanda starts from Alka Puri beyond Badrinath. From here onwards, Bhagirathi is called Ganga.
Rudra Prayag: The union of Mandakini and Alaknanda. Mandakini originates from Kedarnath. There is a sheer difference in the colors of water flowing in these two rivers. The color of Mandakini is deep green because it passes through thick vegetation and has curative properties. In contrast, the water of Alaknanda is Muddy because it flows through glaciers, and its residue also flows in it; hence it is rich in minerals.
Nand Prayag: It is the confluence of Nandakini and Alaknanda. Nandakini originates from Nanda Devi.

Karan Prayag: It is the confluence of the Pindar River, which originates from Pindari Glacier in the Kumaon region and Alaknanda. There is also a temple here dedicated to Karna, who mediated here from Mahabharat.

Joshi Math: In the evening, reach Joshi Math, the seat of Shankaracharya. When Badrinath Dham is closed due to snow, the prayers occur at Narasimhan Temple at Joshimath in winter.
