Dehra Dun: The Rishikesh-Badrinath national highway was reopened on Monday after remaining blocked for a day due to landslides.

The highway was closed at Mandia village yesterday but the debris were cleared today and traffic was allowed to move, official sources said.

However, the road leading to Kedarnath shrine was hit by fresh landslides in Rudraprayag district, blocking vehicular traffic, they said, adding that efforts were on to clear the debris and reopen the road.

The national highways leading to the two other Himalayan shrines of Gangotri and Yamunotri are open for yatra, the sources said.

Meanwhile, the weather remained largely dry in most parts of Uttarakhand with overcast sky in some areas, the Met office said.
