Vasudhara Waterfall in Chamoli District
Vasudhara Falls is a waterfall in Uttarakhand, India, near Badrinath. The total distance between Badrinath and Vasudhara is 9 kilometres. The first three kilometres from Badrinath to Mana Village are drivable. The next 6 kilometres are a walkable trek from Mana village to Vasudhara waterfall. This waterfall is 400 feet tall (122 mt).
Mana village is thought to have been a temporary stopover for the legendary Pandavas during their exile. The foot trek begins in Mana village. The trek becomes difficult after passing Saraswati Mandir due to the steepness of the walkway. Trekking can sometimes feel like rolling down a stone-pebbled path. The views of the Vasudhara River Valley from this incline trek are spectacular. It takes two hours to walk from Mana to Vasudhara.
Because there are no food or water facilities along the route, please bring your own water bottle and light snacks in a backpack (pitthu bag). Wearing sports shoes is recommended for this difficult stony mountain trek.
Vasudhara waterfall is a beautiful sight, with a tall mountain cliff (145 m) in the background were the waterfalls. Bathing under falling water is both refreshing and exciting. The nearby mountains include Chaukhamba, Nilkantha, and Balakun, among others. Satopanth glacier rolls down towards the bottom of Vasudhara.
