A picture of a road along with the sea has surfaced on the internet which claims to be from the route of Chardham (Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath) in Uttarakhand.
The caption with the picture read: ये उत्तराखंड के चार धाम जाने वाले मार्गो का नया और अद्भुत स्वरूप है!
मोदी है तो मुमकिन है
Translation: It is a new and wonderful form of the road to the Chardham in Uttarakhand!
It is possible if Modi is there.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the above posts, we came to the conclusion that false information is being spread as the above picture is not from Uttarakhand.
Firstly, on noticing the direction of the vehicles, it is certain that it is from a left-hand drive country. Moreover, there is no sea-like waterbody along the route to Chardham.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found that this is from Tangier in Morocco, and the name of the road is ‘Route de la Plage Merkala.’
Hence, this proves that the above picture is not from Uttarakhand.
