Badrinath is the last panchayath in north end. From here Tibet is only 40 km by road and 2 km in air.


Mana is the last village, where Alaknanda and Saraswathi river join. It is a sangam place, where Veda Vyasa has written 18 purannas and expanded vedas.                                                                         
Pandavas has travelled on their last journey (Maha Prastana) through Satopanth on the way to Swargarohini. You can see a beautiful and heart shaped water pond located in the middle of The Himalayas, Uttarakhand state,  North India.
