Badrinath is a holy town and a Nagar panchayat in the Chamoli district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is the most important of the four sites in India’s Char Dham pilgrimage and gets its name from the Holy temple of Badrinath. Badrinath has an average elevation of 3,100 meters (10,170 feet). It is in the Garhwal Himalayas, on the banks of the Alaknanda River.

The town lies between the Nar and Narayana mountain ranges 9 km east of Nilkantha peak (6,596m). Badrinath is located 62 km northwest of Nanda Devi peak and 301 km north of Rishikesh. Badrinath was re-established as a major pilgrimage site by Adi Shankara in the ninth century. In earlier days, pilgrims used to walk hundreds of miles to visit the Badrinath temple.

The temple in Badrinath is also a sacred pilgrimage site for Vaishnavites. Badrinath is also the gateway to several mountaineering expeditions headed to mountains like Nilkantha.

Best time to visit

The temple opens on Akshaya Tritiya (April end or first week of May) and closes on Bhai Duj (October end or 1st week of November) due to heavy snowfall and extreme cold weather during winter.
