Joshimath Travel


Nanda Devi, Joshimath

Holding the attention of nature lovers from far and wide, Joshimath is a captivating hill station. Located ideally in the mountain slopes above the rivers Alaknanda and Dhauliganga, the hill station enjoys a salubrious climate.

The name Joshimath is a distorted version of the Sanskrit word 'Jyotirmath', the place of the Jyotirlinga of Shiva. It is believed that sage Shankracharya established one of the four piths (centers) for sanyasis at this place. Joshimath falls on the way to Badrinath and it is believed that lord Vishnu resides at this place in the winters.
