Joshimath Info

  • State: Uttarakhand
  • Famous for/as: Hill
Joshimath is a city with religious importance and a municipal board in the Garwal region of Chamoli district in Uttarakhand. Joshimath is located at an altitude of 6000 ft in the snow-capped Himalayan ranges just above the mountains of Dhauliganga and Alaknanda.

Joshimath lies in the region of Kamaprayag, which is a region where the two rivers of Dhauliganga and Alaknanda meet. Joshimath is visited by Hindu devotees as it is as an important pilgrimage centre with several temples and religious sites.

Joshimath, which is located very close to the area of Badrinath, is one of the four ‘maths’ discovered by Adi Guru Shri Sankaracharya in the 8th century AD. The ‘math’ here is dedicated to Atharva Veda. This place was earlier known by the name of Kartikeyapura until the Katyuri rulers renamed the place.

Joshimath offers opportunities for trekking from Joshimath to the Valley of Flowers National Park. The region of Joshimath experiences mild cold even during the summers while heavy rainfall is expected in the monsoons. Winter seasons here are extremely cold and the temperature during this time drops to the freezing point. Some areas of the town are even closed due to heavy snowfall.

Joshimath is not directly connected by rail or air. The nearest airport is located in Dehradun at a distance of 151 kilometres. The nearest railway station is at Haridwar, which is about 163 kilometres from Joshimath and can be reached from major cities like Delhi, Ahmedabad and Dehradun. It is also connected to Dehradun, Rishikesh, Haridwar, Almora and Nainital by regular bus service.
