  • 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
  • Beautiful shot. Both Gurudwara Gobind Dham (10000 ft) and Gurudwara Hemkunt Sahib (15200 ft) in a single view.
  • One of the most calm and spiritual place I've ever been to. Shri Hemkunt Sahib is located approximately 15000 feet above sea level.
  • I have gone 7 times to Shri Hemkunt sahib with my family and every time it was a diffrent experience and as a holy place of Sikh ie sikh temple many tourist come from diffrent corners of the world and its a great experience to reach over the top to the temple ie Gurudwara by walking or we can call it hiking and some people take helicopter to reach the top.Must visit the place
  • 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.
