Places Of Interest in Joshimath
Of late, the ancient concept of "Yatra" has mingled intimately with adventure, fun and frolic in the modern concept of tourism. A visit to the spectacular Garhwal Himalayas enshrining Badrinath, Hemkund Saheb, Valley of Flowers, Tapovan and the skiing slopes of Auli are no more considered as an adventure of a life time - thanks to a well developed road net work ahead of Rishikesh. Today, your resolve to witness the pristine glory of these spots testifies the confidence the present time have imposed, which is praiseworthy.
All these places of your interest are the gifts of nature, studded like choicest flowers in a bouquet in the basket of snow capped mountains filled with abundant fresh air in tranquil surroundings, magnificently enveloped in coniferous trees and oak. They offer a potential visiting slot not nearly for spiritual fulfillment, but also as an ideal health resort and perfect vacation spot.
Fortunately, accessibility to these tourist spots from Joshimath falls reasonably within the threshold of human perseverance involving travel by road or exclusive trekking. Taking advantage of this geographic location, we are proud to have developed most hospitable infrastructure at Hotel Dronagiri in Joshimath, just 256 kms ahead of Rishikesh. Rishikesh, as gateway to the hills is accessible by :-

Road journey from Rishikesh to Joshimath involves serpentine roads more aptly by drivers conversant with the topography typical of mountainous tracts anywhere. Having organized your road transportation suitably (car\bus), either from the very door step of your home town, or from any other intermediate pickup point (viz. Delhi), you must preferably take an early morning start from Rishikesh, from where Joshimath is just 9 hrs hill drive away. This stretch of journey from Rishikesh will be intercepted at practically half way to the delightful Transit Point at Gaucher organized by us so that at the end of day's travels, you reach Hotel Dronagiri at Joshimath smiling and confident in spite of the arduous hill journey.
In our present offer, you are not dodged with hidden costs of transportation, wait-in-charges etc. in the conventional packages, as you happen to be your own transport organizer.
