Badrinath in Winters

Badrinath Temple is shut down for winter months every year during while prayers to the Badri Vishal ‘Utsav Murti’ continue at the Narsimha temple in Joshimath. The priests of Badrinath Temple continue to perform the rituals on the ‘Utsav Murti’ at Narasimha temple during the winter season.

Before closing the temple doors, the priests light a lamp before the idol in the sanctum. It is said that during this period of winter months, Narad Muni who had attained salvation here, continues with the prayer services. This belief is further strengthened based on the fact that when the temple is again reopened after six months in spring, the lamp is still seen to be flickering!

Sunder Rajen

Are shared cabs available for going to Badrinath from Haridwar/Rishikesh? If yes, How much would they charge per person? Do they halt briefly in places of spiritual importance such Vishnu Prayag, Nand Prayag, Rudr Prayag etc., on the way? I am planning to go there on 3rd November, 2023 with my wife .

If any one can help me get these details, I will be verymuch thankful.

Pindaan would be easily done at Badrinath. No need to book in advance. Many priests would be available at Badrinath. Brahma Kapal is the place in Badrinath where Pindaan is done.

What is the availability of Hotel and Dharamsala in Joshimathand Badrinath if any one goes without advance reservation of Hotel to the above two places in June 1st week.

I saw many you tube video and discussions but I didnot find anywhere as to if any body goes to joshimath or Badrinathwithout advance booking of hotel whether he can get low cost (between 500/- to 1000/-) hotel or Dharamsala on the date of arrival?


I want a calm and relaxing tour. It is a pilgrimage with my elderly parents (70 years old). Kindly suggest options. I would prefer the package from Dehradun. with sightseeing in and around each place. Including taking holy bath and doing Puja/ Abhishek. Should a 2 days stay at each place be enough and then travel to the next place. Is the month of May is best for such relaxed pilgrimage ? I want to avoid standing in queues. Also no hiking. ( a few minutes walk is OK but not for hours.). Kindly suggest.


Is there registration is madetory for Kedarnath and Badrinath ji darshan and what is the last date of registration

Reply to  Himani

Yes same vaisno Devi


I wish to go badrinath on 30 April 2018 from dehradun . Pl suggest me suitable transport for 3 of us . Do we need to trek to the temple if yes how much.

Sacred Yatra
Reply to  Shubha

Hi Shubha, You can hire a cab for 3 to reach Badrinath in a day from Haridwar and after darshan next day, you can get back. If running on a tight budget, then book seats on bus from Haridwar/ Rishikesh. There is no need to trek as Badrinath is well connected by road.

Reply to  Shubha

Hi Subha,

Last year we travelled from Rishikesh. We took a cab and started around 7.00 clock in the morning. Visited Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag,Dhari Devi temple, Hanuman Choti and reached by 6.30pm to Badrinath. We took hotel, relaxed a while & visited temple too. So taking CAB is best. No trekking is needed. From Dehradun start little early. That would be best. I would like to share one more detail in this regard. We attended morning 4.30 Arti. We took bath in Thapta Kund and bought tickets. We were 4 of us. That Pooja was so divine. I hope if you can see Arti that would be too good.

Hi Pranav, Please check correct road route to visit Badrinath Dham here :

Reply to  PRANAV

Upto Delhi, you must be knowing the route. From Delhi, you can travel by roadways bus or train upto Haridwar (220 KMs from Delhi) or Rishikesh (another 20 KM from Haridwar). From Rishikesh onward, there is no railway track and you will have to travel by road. Roadways Buses and private taxis are available from Rishikesh. The total distance between Delhi and Badrinath is 538 KMs. The route from Delhi will be Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut-Muzaffarpur-Haridwar-Rishikesh-Dev Prayag-Rudra Prayag-Karna Prayag-Joshi Math-Badrinath. Since the terrain beyond Rishikesh is hilly, do not expect an average speed of more than 30 KM per hour from there.
