  • Hemkund Sahib is a Sikh Pilgrim spot. Placed at over 14000+ ft from sea level, it is known for being the highest placed gurdwara in the world. The path towards Hemkund Sahib has some different charm. Those distant waterfalls, ruthless rivers and humongous mountains are some site to stare at! The temperature starts to dip closer to zero. The altitude keeps on bothering your lungs but the chanting of the co trekkers does a hell lot of good to your will power. The chanting of Guru Gobind Singh tripped every one of us. We were then greeted by some mystic Sikhs. Hot khichdi was served without any expectation of something in return. I have always been fond of the Sikh religion. Their service to mankind at such high altitude only added up to the appraisal.
  • Beautiful place at such an high altitude..!! The quick dip in ice cold water lake is an divine experience. Wahiguru ji👐
  • I visited Hemkunt Sahib in August 2015 while visiting Valley of flowers. For going to Hemkunt Sahib, you will have to reach Haridwar or Rishikesh by Air/Train/Road and then by road upto Govindghat near Badrinath. Due to mountain and ghat roads you will have to start early in the morning so that you will reach Govindghat in the evening. Next day start early trekking to Ghangria Village of around 16 kms. You will have to climb it from 5000 ft to almost 10000 ft. If wheather permits one can skip this trek and take a helicopter service and you will reach to Ghangria in just 5 minutes otherwise it will take 8 to hours by trek. Ghangria is the base camp for Valley of flowers and Hemkunt Sahib which is at the altitude of around 15000 ft. Its surrounded by 7 mountains and glacial lake. Hemkunt Sahib is around 6 kms from village Ghangria. This is quite steep and it is at higher altitude which makes it more difficult. I recommend you to take a pony for sure. Helicopter is not available to Hemkunt Sahib. Hemkunt Sahib has emerged as a popular centre of Sikh Pilgrimage which is visited by thousands of devotees from all over the world every summer. According to Bachitra Natak, the autobiographical account of the tenth Guru, Gobind Singh, it was at Hemkunt 'adorned with seven snow peaks' that he meditated in his previous birth. Enroute you will find a big glaciour and very rare Brahmakamal flowers. After visiting Hemkunt Sahib dont forget to have their Prasad and Khichadi-Tea. Kaar Sevaks are at the service of every devotees.
