Mandakini Valley

Mandakini Valley is in Chamoli District of Uttaranchal. The valley is U-shaped. This suggests that once it contained a large glacier that has melted away. Mandakini Valley leads to Kedarnath Temple, one of the 12 most sacred shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple stands facing Mandakini Valley. At Chirpatya, there is a ridge separating Mandakini Valley and Bhilganga River. Jolly Grant Airport is the nearest airport and Rishikesh Railway Station is the nearest railway station.
