Rishikesh, private and Government buses are available at all hours, but one has
to make nearly one full day's journey to reach the feet of the Lord, provided
misfortune does not stand in the form of landslides on the way. The bus route
touches many holy places, claiming their association with celebrated personages,
or possessing spiritual wealth in the form of temples, worthy of visitation.
Normally pilgrims go via Rishikesh,
Devprayag, Srinagar, Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag, Nandaprayag,
Joshimath, Vishnuprayag, Pandukeshwar, Hanuman Chatti
and finally Badarinath.
