Hemkund Sahib Tour

Shri Hemkund Sahib is an important pilgrimage destination for Hindus and Sikhs. Set amidst tall snow-capped mountains and residing beside a lake of pristine blue water, Hemkund Sahib is a place of almost unbelievable beauty and peace. The picturesque natural settings make this hill region an amazing place for rejuvenating vacations. The place houses one of the prominent Sikh Gurudwaras placed in the heart of the region. A Hindu shrine dedicated to mythological hero Lakshmana is also a popular site to visit.

The last human habitation centre on the way to Hemkund Sahib is Ghangaria, which is also one of the major attractions. Perched at an altitude of 3,050 mts above sea level, Ghangaria is prone to heavy snowfall in winters, and therefore remains open from May to October. A Gurudwara, GMVN rest houses and a few more hotels provide accommodation facility at Ghangharia.

Another major attraction here is the Valley of Flowers, which is a beautiful 4 kms trek from Ghangaria. The region of Valley of Flowers is rich in flora and fauna, and was declared the National Park of India in the year 1982. It is now a World heritage Site. The virgin beauty of this mystical valley has always lured botanists, nature lovers and adventure lovers.

The popularity of the place is due to the fact that the tenth and penultimate guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, meditated for years in these mountains, before he left his earthly form. The star-shaped Gurudwara Sri Hemkund Sahib, at a height of over 4,000 mt, is as such, a memorial to Guru Gobind Singh ji and a reminder of the saint's mission.
