National Highway 7 (NH 7) is a highway connecting Fazilka (Punjab) to Mana (Uttarakhand) in India. It passes through the Indian states of Punjab, Chandigarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.
The NH-7 (old NH-58) connects Hindu pilgrim centres of Rishikesh, Devprayag, Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag, Chamoli, Joshimath and Badrinath with Dehradun and Chandigarh. Pilgrims travelling to Sri Hemkuntsahib take a diversion from Govindghat which lies on NH-7 between Joshimath and Badrinath.
The road is generally closed during the winter months of December, January, February and March in the upper reaches of the Himalayas through which National Highway 7 passes. This road goes to Mana Pass near the India-Tibetan border.
