Badrinath highway re – opens after 27 hours (21st May, 2017): Heavy landslide on the Badrinath highway near Vishnuprayag resulted in the Badrinath Highway remaining blocked to traffic for nearly 27 hours. On 19 May, 2017 evening around 3pm, boulders started falling at the spot and by 4pm a 150 m stretch of the road was completely damaged by the sliding of a large section of the mountainside.

However, continuous effort by the Border Roads Organisation, whose men and machines worked continuously through the night of 19 May, resulted in the road being cleared for vehicular traffic by the evening of 20 May.

Meanwhile, around 11,000 tourists and pilgrims remained stranded in Badrinath because of the road block. Similarly, the traffic going towards Badrinath was stopped at various stations on the highway from Rudraprayag onwards by the authorities to prevent overcrowding further up near the landslide zone. By evening of 20 May traffic had been restored to normal.

The tourism and pilgrimage traffic to Badrinath has been growing year-on-year. From a figure of 3.5 lakh visitors in 1990, the number of visitors to Badrinath had crossed the figure 9.5 lakhs in 2012.

The number of visitors to Badrinath in 2014 plummeted to a record low of just 1.8 lakh due to 2013 Kedarnath disaster. Since then the situation has started to return to normal and last year in 2016 over 6 lakh visited Badrinath. This year the figure is expected to cross 9 lakhs. Border Roads Organisation has assured that it is ready to ensure a smooth ride to all these visitors.
