Auli - Badrinath - Mana Gaon trip

A photo essay on 3 day trip from Delhi to Mana Gaon covering Badrinath and Auli in between.

semi-overcast 24 °C

Again a trip made in haste, miles squeezed in hours , some skill full hand behind the wheel and a wandering eye behind the lens. All ingredients to a great journey, this time to touch the last village on Indo-China border, Mana and what a beauty it was. a place i would love to surrender my self , put my arms down and sleep in the lap of mother nature. We encountered worst of the roads and best of the views, the divinity at Badrinath and tranquility of Auli for an ultimate experience to be at the last habitat.
Story says from here Pandawas found their way to heaven and the look of the place compels one to believe the legend.
