Hi friends,
I plan to drive from Delhi to Gangotri during May 10. I am conversant with roads till Rishikesh. Can anyone give an uadate on roads from there to Chamba-Uttarkashi-Harsil-Gangotri. I understand that road till Uttarkashi are ok and thereafter its bad. Can i get some more specific inputs on this? I will be driving a santro with three passengers.
Looking forward - Thanks.

hi amit,

roads are normally good but get ready for few bumps. u can do with santro but it is not a very good idea, any suv is the best option.

the road till Bhatwari are in very good conditions but a small stretch if in bad shape for reason Dam construction work was in progress.... before sukhi top again you will have pleasing road to drive till Gangotri....

Agree with Tilak.
I went to Gangotri last May. Overall observation:
1)Rishikesh - Uttarkashi: descent road(width and surface). But NOT comparable with Rishikesh-Srinagar-Rudraprayag-Badrinath highway.
2) Uttarkashi-Bhatwari- Same as 1.
3) Bhatwari-Harshil- I think Tata's and Mahindra's send their vehicles for stress testing here. Absoulately bad surface due to dam construction. Often too narrow.
4) Harshil-Gangotri- Pretty good.

Thanks for the inputs. Tis second time I plan this trip, first one did not come through. I did Rishikesh - Srinagr -Rudraprayag in Mar 09.Roads were reasonably good. In that trip, however, I had scare of lifetime since our approach trip from Meerut to Rudraprayag was through najibabad, buakhal and the entire mountainous road was under construction. Good experience.
Thanks.
