Popularly known as the Queen of Garhwal, Neelkanth is a beautiful snowy peak towering above the holy town of Badrinath. The history of Central Garhwal would remain unfinished without mentioning this peak of supreme splendour and exquisiteness. The elegant Neelkanth borders the Nar-Narayan range of mountains and is abundant in all the beautiful gifts Nature has to offer. This snowy mountain lies at an altitude of 6,597 metres and looks upon the Badrinath shrine. Neelkanth is a sought-after destination for devout pilgrims.
