Uttarakhand Launches Badrinath Yatra App for Android
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Monday launched an Android app for the annual Badrinath pilgrimage.

Known as Shubh Badrinath Yatra, the application was made by the district administration of Chamoli, and provides information of the pilgrimage between Joshimath and Badrinath.

It is currently listed on Google Play, with the app description: "This app is designed to provide you all the necessary and useful information of Joshimath-Badrinath yatra route to make your visit pleasant, safe, happy and comfortable. This app will introduce you to the traditional pahadi cuisine and all the updates directly from Sri Badrinath ji."

Officials said when users are online, the application would automatically detect their location and give them information from that point of journey.

Garhwal Divisional Commissioner Chandra Singh Napalchyal told IANS the Android app will have information of ATM's, petrol pumps, hotels, restaurants, potable water, toilets, parking stands, bus stands, taxi stands and repair shops.

All these facilities including emergency and helipad services would be linked to the Google maps. The application would also suggest alternate and emergency routes in case of a landslide or inclement weather conditions, officials added.

Appreciating the app, Chief Minister Rawat said based on the success of the application, the Uttarakhand government would try to extend it to Yamunotri, Gangotri and Kedarnath shrines.
