  • It's holy place for Sikh people. it's approximately 15000 feet form sea level .you have to trek around 12 km (both side ) from Ghangaria village. If you have to spend more time there then you should start your trek very early. Porters & ponies are available for those who can't trek
  • Being a sikh or frequent traveller you must have thought of visiting Hemkunt Sahib ji at least once in your lifetime.If yes then do it without giving any second thought to it. Being a Devotee it is like a mission to reach God's place and say your prayers.The necessary thing required to do this trip is that one must be physically fit without any breathing and joint pains issue,Because this trip is challenging enough if we do this trip by trek.Visiting this place on pony or helicopter ride is like missing out the real excitement and adventure.Surely if one is left with some energy after visiting this place and he or she loves being around the hills and flowers one can visit Valley Of Flowers on next day.Once you return back from this journey a person gets a feel of proud about self for visiting this place successfully with Waheguru's blessings.Best time to visit June,August & September.Avoid visiting in May due to heavy rush and in July due to consistent rains and landslides on road trip journey.
  • One awesome place. That's the highest point I have trek till date. The view is very awesome. Try to climb the mountain..
  • This is a place of worship for Sikhs and pilgrimage site in Chamoli district, Uttrakhand. It's a beautiful and Spiritual place....Here you will see a Gurudwara in the valley surrounded by peaks...also there is a 'sarovar' (Pond) here along with the gurudwara. As this place is at high altitude...there is heavy snowfall in December to February mounths. You must come along with your family some day......If you love tracking put this holy place in your " must go list".
  • Hemkund literally suggest Lake of snow. It is also known as Gurdwara Shri Hemkund sahib ji. Numerous waterfalls, dense forest,enchanting view of great Himalayas, crystal clear Lake and the Holy Hemkund sahib Gurdwara are the key highlight of this trekking track.
