Vasudhara Falls, Mana Village near Badrinath, Chamoli, Uttarakhand

8:30 am we started our journey by foot from Badrinath because there was no sharing jeeps available for Mana village. Mostly devotees / tourists visit Mana village by their own or hired vehicle.

Mana village is 4 km approx. from Badrinath and walking is a good option while watching villagers busy in fields, holy river Alaknanda flowing, Nar Narayan parvat around and a display board – Last Indian Village.

By 9:30 am we reached Mana village. 9:40 am we were at Bhim Pul. We spent few minutes there watching holy river Saraswati flowing at full speed. Nowhere else expect in this area only one can watch river Saraswati and a small stream of holy water from Mansarover Lake nearby Bhim Pul And then a look towards Keshav Prayag – The confluence of Alaknanda and Saraswati rivers.

12:30 noon hours we reached Vasudhara Falls.

On the way we saw Bhu Vaikunta. It is said in ancient era people used to do Hindu funeral rites here only before trekking towards Swargarohini.

Dev – The guide further enhanced knowledge about the area. The other side of Alaknanda river is the path towards Satopanth lake or even Swargarohini you can say. Chamtoli Bhugyal is the first day camp site while trekking towards Satopanth lake. Laxmi Van is also visible known for Bhojpatra trees. In earlier times sages used to write on the bark of Bhojpatra trees. And one can watch glaciers.

And not to forget it is believed if few drops of Vasudhara Falls touches your skin all your sins are washed away.

In short I suggest if you are fit for trekking and visiting Badrinath you should trek to Vasudhara Falls but start early so that by late afternoon hours you returned to Mana village or Badrinath. Take rainy clothes with you in case if it rains.
