Please let me know the road condition for the plan trip. As far I know, near Joshimath, there is a entry timing to Badrinath. Are there any restrictions in any of the traveling road

If you are visiting Nainital, Make sure you pickup few candles. You get one of the best hand made candles in nainital. Also en-route to Mukteshwar from Nainital there is a small place where lovely hand made chocolates are sold, I am not able to recollect its name, but you will find sufficient boards advertising about them, make sure you try them, I liked it so I am recommending it, may not be the case with everyone. Also the last point of mukteshwar is a govt guest house, view of Himalayas from there is breathtaking, its the closest clear view I had of Himalayas though I visit Vaishnodevi every year.

AFAIK, in the Joshimath-Badrinath sector, driving is in convoy and the timings on eitehr side are at 630 am, 900 am, 1130 am, 200 pm & 430 pm.

I also believe that roads approaching Joshimath, Kedarnath, etc are closed after 8 pm.

Thanks Kumar ! What about NH 119 road status ? From Ghaziabad to Syalsaur - how much time does it generally ?

You are referring to NH58?
It is in good condition till Rishikesh, but after that it is being widened in many sections, so expect construction debris.
Rishikesh-Joshimath is a full day drive, including a brief stopover at Deoprayag.

Well, the plan looks great just that I recommend you to look for another place to stay in Joshinath and Auli. The one in Joshimath is in a terrible condition and the one in Auli would cost you more than a five-star accommodation! The other GMVN's wouldn't be great either.

Also, most of the routes that you'll be covering are land-slide prone areas, so be prepared for some unexpected delays+stop-over.

While heading back, try and get your car checked thoroughly at a Toyota Dealership as under-body damage on such terrains is very common. If there is any major damage, it'll be very irritating if it creates an issue in the middle of a journey.

When you are travelling from Delhi to Haridwar, you will find a place by the name Cheetal, A must stop place for its scenic beauty right on the bank of one of the branch of ganges. In haridwar the most famous guy was *******wala but now there are many on his name. Right opposite to Har-ki-pauri there is lane, continue walking into it and there is a famous sindhi guy who makes lip smacking halwa puri, gulab jamun etc....will check and let you know the exact name. But mostly on these routes that you are travelling, you will find good dhabas i guess, to the extent I had traveled, i never had an issue with place to eat. Hope you will not be looking for idlis and dosas there.

Cheetal is no longer on the toll highway. You will have to look for a 'Y' cut towards the right after you pass McD. I guess there is a huge sign board pointing towards right. At Mukhteshwar there is a guest house that is very beautiful. Pic attached. Would have surely stayed there but had Mountain Trails already booked.

No Iqbal. I am planning to skip these as it will be difficult to trek with kids that too after trekking Kedarnath and Tungnath.
