The “Chardham Yatra” in Badrinath, which was struck in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district near Vishnuprayag due to heavy rain and landslide last week, now has been continued, according to the reports.

A major landslide which has stranded the movement of more than 15,000 pilgrims at Hathi Parvat near Vishnuprayag in District Chamoli has now been cleared.

Madan Kaushik, the BJP Cabinet Minister said, 1,400 pilgrims who were struck at Govindghat, while another 500 pilgrims were struck at Pandukeshwar have resumed their journey.

It was observed that the Border road organization and the Local administration have normalized the Chardham Yatra for the pilgrims who were heading towards their journey to Badrinath and Hemkund Sahib.

It was reported that Rishikesh-Badrinath National Highway was closed due to rain-triggered landslides in the area.

It was believed that after the road was open on Saturday evening at Vishnuprayag, the traffic movement gets to ease back because of the restricted street near the landslide site.

Congested driving conditions additionally announced at peak hours from wee hours till noon.

However, with dynamic work of BRO team, the street is working smoothly and movement is moderate and steadily passing on Badrinath highway.
