Description

 

Swargarohini Yatra ensures the pilgrims a lifetime experience through the sacred Himalyan landscape with wonderful facilities and opportunities to discover the undisclosed facts about Satopanth-Swargarohini, Paradise on earth According to Hindu mythology, Satopanth Tal is on the route taken by the Panch Pandavas on their Sadhea Swarga Yatra. At various places their name remains as a memorial of this sacred journey. At the starting point at Mana, 3 km away from Badrinath, is the natural rock bridge, Bhima Pul. Here, Bhima is believed to have made the bridge over the river Saraswati so Draupadi could cross. At Lakshmi Ban, Draupadi is believed to have breathed her last. In the austere barren landscape at an altitude of 12600 feet, strewn with huge boulders, Bhurjpatra plants grow in the small patch of Lakshmi Ban. At Bandhar, it is said that Yudhishthir’s thirst was quenched by the baan or arrow shot by Arjun which caused a stream of water to gush forth from the very Earth. At Bhimbar, the rock pillar commemorates Bhima’s release from earthly life. At Chakratirtha the great yogi and warrior, Arjun gave up his body. Ahead, only Yudhishthir with his dog, who was indeed Dharma Raja himself, went in his mortal form, negotiating dangerous glaciers and hidden crevasses. At Satopanth Tal, the celestial rath or vehicle received him.
