Due to the severe cold in Badrinath Dham, the spring water and the drain have started to freeze. The dew drops that fall on the trees have turned into snow. A cold snap blows on the Dham in the morning and at night.

These days pilgrims arriving at the Dham face severe cold. The situation is that the pilgrims lurk in the rooms as soon as night falls. Sunil Purohit, CEO of Nagar Panchayat Badrinath, said that due to the cold in the Dham, now the water has started to freeze.

Arrangements have been made for bonfires at Bus Stand, Saket Tiraha and other locations. Together with the pilgrims, saints and saints resort to the bonfire to escape the cold. There is relief from the cold due to the sunlight in the Dham.

At the same time, La Niña (water cooling) is increasing rapidly in the Pacific Ocean. This means that the temperature in the Northern Hemisphere is below normal. Because of this, there is the possibility of severe cold in Uttarakhand, including all of northern India. Meanwhile, mercury can drop as much as three degrees below normal.

At the same time, despite heavy snowfall, the power supply will not be interrupted in Mana, the last village in the country, including Badrinath Dham. For this, the Uttarakhand Renewable Energy Development Agency has planned to increase the capacity of a 1,250 kilowatt small hydropower project located in Badrinath Dham and operate it in isolated mode.
