It’s always good to spend the summer in a nice fashion. Of course I do love to spend the summer by visiting many historical places and hill stations had been planning to go to Badrinath for the past four years. It became a reality this year. I went there this May. It was a family trip. It was 6 am when we reached there .I bathed at a natural hot water spring. It was near Alakanda, a frozen river .My father did some rituals for our ancestor’s .This is called ‘pitru karma’. Then we had an excellent view of the hill station. I could see a good ancient temple was located 10,000 feet above the sea level. Coming down from the great Himalayas too was an exciting experience. The bust journey was good up the hill with steep mountain slopes. I really enjoyed the trip and it was a memorable one for me. I shared my experience of this trip with my friends and neighbors.
