ACTIVITIES

It is a long trip from Rishikesh and if you plan to return, there will be little time to visit any other places. Besides, you may have planned to go on to Badrinath. If you stay over in Joshimath then you can visit Auli, a winter sports destination about 29 km away with a 4 km rope-way giving you a breathtaking view of the scenery below. Chopta is another scenic destination about 117 km away.

The Vishnuprayag hydroelectric power project site is also worth a visit. Plan the trip in summer and you can visit the fabulous Valley of Flowers National Park, only 16 km from Govind Ghat. Closer to Vishnuprayag you have the beautiful Kagbbhushandi Lake with its crystal clear waters reflecting the mountains giving you a real treat.

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Vishnuprayag is located at a height of 1370 metres and as such it is open throughout the year unlike char dhams.

Summer is the best time to visit but it may be crowded since most pilgrims prefer this season for travel. It is pleasantly cool during the day and may get chilly at night so do not forget to pack woolens. Monsoon is when the entire region takes on a mantle of green and there are small rivulets cascading down the mountainside so this may be a better season to travel but be prepared for landslides and delays. Winter is when it becomes quite chilly. If you love winter sports Auli is not far away and you can combine an adventure and fun trip with a pilgrimage to Vishnuprayag.
