Badrinath is witnessing continuous snowfall in the entire Dham where the region is covered with 8 to 10 feet of snow blanket. Irrespective of such harsh conditions, 23 people are taking responsibility of snow-covered regions and are working very actively and positively. It seems like the snowfall is not going to stop this year in Badrinath. It has been recorded that in the last 13 years the region is experiencing such a heavy snowfall for the first time which is still going on and the region is still frozen.
It is quite difficult to survive in such cold and snowy weather. But we cannot ignore those who are still surviving and actively participating in this adverse climatic condition. The personnel includes the policemen who are posted for the security of the temple, others are the staff of the Badrinath Temple Committee, Sadhu Saints, and the hoteliers. They all are seeking permission from the administration of the guesthouses. Yogendra Singh who is the deputy collector of Joshimath stated that all those 23 people are living safely in this chilly cold weather of Badrinath. They are not facing any kind of problems and if it is needed they will be provided with the facilities of heli services.
