Chandraprakash2002 and Fotofreak,
Thanks for the information. It is really interesting and I heard this all for the first time. Such posts are really good for those who don't know much.

To go or not to go is the question. I've postponed the decision for too long. Now the time has come to act upon. Am leaving in a few hours to VoF via Delhi and Rishikesh..Into the hands of fate..

Godspeed to all fellow travelers..

Would just like to point out once more to those wanting to self-drive to Joshimath-Badrinath area - it is well possible to approach through Bijnor/Kotdwar route with minimal addition of kms. This route is not as heavily-trafficked as the Rishikesh route and generally suffers less damage.

It is even possible to bypass Shrinagar via the Khirsu-Khankra road (HOWEVER check at Buwakhal that the road is open).

Hi Dilliwala,

Last year the entire stretch from satputli to Pauri was under construction and not in very good shape. Dont know what is today's condition. Agree that route is less trafficked but i regretted last time.

last week has been very drastic for the chamoli district and uttarkashi district, as there had been cloudbursting and flashfloods in both the regions causing heavy discharge and land cutting nearby the river banks at various places. This caused road getting damaged and vanished at various places between rishikesh to badrinath. Right now the situation is under control to some extent but the MET has given notice for further 24 hours ( i.e. upto 11.08.2012) for being cautious of heavy rains and flashfloods. Between rishikesh to badrinath, there are near 14-15 places, where the situation is very critical and are very prone to landslides, falling rocks and roadblocks.
SO ITS BEST ADVICED NOT TO TRAVEL THESE DAYS UPTILL SITUATION BECOMES UNDER CONTROL.
ANYWAY, ENJOY THE MONSOON AT YOUR NATIVE PLACE, RATHER THAN BEING STUCK IN BAD SITUATIONS.

Travel from 7th Sept onwards

We are scheduled to travel from 7th September 2012 for Char Dham + Gaumukh + VOF + Henkund Sahib.

Over the last few days, we have been reading about the natural calamity that has befallen Uttarkashi and few other places in Uttarakhand.

From experience, can someone please advise if the road & power infrastructure will be restored in less than 30-days or we should call-off the trip?

Thanks and best regards

I have been on this route ten times i.e. Hemkuund Sahib and Badri Nath and found September the best. But last year it rained. all is luck.If one makes a plan to go then go.

Travel advisory for all travellers, in all likelyhood, the conditions for travelling in these area is going to be very difficult for the next few months. Roads and bridges have collapsed/been damaged all along the valley. With the main connecting bridge at Gangori gone, the area up from Gangori towards dodital as well as Gangotri is completely cut off at the moment. There is a temporary walking bridge at Gangori that has been constructed to facilitate relief and rescue further in the valley but from what i have heard so far, areas beyond bhatwari remain in accessible. The situation is not likely ot improve until a vehicle bridge can be built over the river at Gangori to connect the rest of the valley to the town. This may take a while as the trucks with relief material are not being able to come into the valley due to road damage towards Dunda on the NH. To all who wish to come here, please do so only if you want to help in the relief and reconstruction. If you want to come for pleasure, I suggest a change in plan.
