The distance between Haridwar and Badrinath is about 320 kms. Since it is a mountain road, most of the buses generally leaves Haridwar early morning so as to reach Badrinath by sunset. The bus options for going to Badrinath may be more at Rishikesh - 24 kms. further to Haridwar which is the gateway to Garhwal.

Thanks in advance

hey Redmarsy,
Buses plying regularly between Haridwar and Joshimath in season time (or u can say tha in piligrimage time). Most of them leave early in the morning say at 5:00AM to 7:30AM.
Other way is to catch the shared taxis, that you can get from Rishikesh (from Tehri bus stand).

How long does it take from Rishikesh to Joshimath by bus? If the bus departs for example 7am is there any chance to arrive at Joshimath before sunset? It's not impossible to find accommodation in the dark but it's much more comfortable to settle down before sunset..

I believe that it takes 9-10 hrs for a bus to reach Joshimath. Jeeps or Taxi may reach 2-3 hrs earlier. You can call GMVN people about the timings and accommodation.

From Delhi you can only get nightly ordinary buses to Chamoli or Karnprayag. A very long ride and very uncomfortable. You can hire a car of course but it will be very expensive.

It will be ok during the day when the sun is out, a light sweater should suffice. Nights will be cold. It generally doesn't snow in Joshimath.
