Chamoli district of Uttarakhand is situated in the village of Mana. Its height is nearly 3200 feet. So it is the last village so 24 km from the Indian and Chinese border. The Hindu pilgrimage is 4kms away, Badrinath.
Today we are going to tell you about a village which is called a curse-free village. Those that come to this village are believed to be leaving their poverty and being wealthy.
This village is in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The name of this village is Mana. It is said to be the last town in the world. The village is situated on the Indo-Tibet border. The town is named after Lord Shiva’s devotee, Manibhadra Dev.
It is said that Lord Shiva has such glory at this village that whoever comes here gets rid of his poverty. Experts say that this village has the status of a curse-free village. That is, upon coming here the person is freed from all sins. The village is about 4 km from Badrinath Dham.
What is Mythology
According to the legend, there lived a merchant named Manik Shah, who was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. It is said that one of them was going somewhere in connection with the business, while the robbers beheaded him and killed him. Despite this, his neck was chanting Shiva.
Seeing her reverence, Lord Shiva was very happy and put Varaha’s head on her head. Lord Shiva gave a boon to Manik Shah that whoever comes to Mana village, his poverty will be removed and he will become rich. Since then, Manibhadra is worshiped here.
Pandavas went to Swargarohini ladder through this village
According to the legend, Lord Ganesha composed the Mahabharata in this village at the behest of Maharishi Veda Vyasa. Not only this, but Maharishi Ved Vyas also composed Vedas and Puranas here.
It is said that after the end of the Mahabharata war, the Pandavas went to the Swargrohini Stairway to heaven through this village.
Few Picture of Our Amazing Trip from Mana, The Last Village of India
Accommodation at Mana Village
Joshimath: Many choices for living in Joshimath will be enough for everyone.
Badrinath: In Badrinath are also accessible several lodging in the walls and the lodgings run by pilgrims’ groups. Expect very simple and/or warm water free quarters. Natural hot water spring (with popular but distinct bathrooms for men and women) is accessible adjacent to the Temple of Badrinath, should the hotel not have it.
Mana: I couldn’t find any residence hotels, but one could try the homestay alternative. You must travel down to just 3 km from Badrinath.
Best time to visit Mana Village
May – June is the high season for visiting Mana Village and Badrinath, but it is still visible until the beginning of November. This can also be viewed during this period, as it gets less rainfall compared.
The monsoon lasts from July – September. Yet roads on the way to Joshimath or Badrinath may be bad or may have a monsoon landslide.
Travel to Mana Village may sound like a Badrinath or Auli tour, but it is a must for visitors and hikers alike. Different treks are accessible at varying levels of difficulty – the Vasudhara Falls Trek, the Satopanth Lake Trek, Swargaroghini Trek – and several glaciers can be seen on this route. Based on the number of days, a high-altitude Himalayan trip may be scheduled.
