~ Joshimath - Badrinath Highway starting at Vishnuprayag junction ~
As seen in this picture: Vishnuprayag bridge and the road towards Badrinath taken from one of the viewpoints along the curves of Joshimath - Vishnuprayag road. The road is curved mirroring the snaky features of Alakhanda river originating from the highlands of the Himalayas. It's concrete for a few kilomaters. The rest of the highway till Badrinath, starting at a few hundred meters before Govindghat is a combination of rough, rocky, and bumpy, scary road since the heavy floods took place in early June of 2013. Road re-construction is still going on.
