For the pilgrim, Uttarakhand is revered as the true 'Abode of the Gods'. The main source of the Ganges flows from these mountains giving rise to the Char Dham – the pilgrimage undertaken by thousands of Hindu devotees each year to Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. Gangotri is recognised as the actual source of the Ganges, though the stream emerges from the snout of an impressive glacier at nearby Gaumukh. Yamunotri is the source of the Yamuna River, a main tributary of the Ganges. Kedarnath is recognised as one of the divine resting places of Lord Shiva, while Badrinath is assigned to Vishnu. Then there is Hemkund, revered by Sikh pilgrims, and the nearby Valley of the Flowers.

Hemkund Sahib Trek 2019

A tougher trek from Ghangaria is to join the hundreds of Sikh pilgrims toiling up to the 4300m Hem Kund, the sacred lake where the Sikh guru, Gobind Singh, is believed to have meditated in a previous life. The pilgrim season runs from around May to October. Ponies are available if you prefer to ride up the 6km zigzag track. Also called Govinddham, Ghangaria is a one-street village in a wonderful deodar forest with a busy market, a handful of budget hotels and restaurants, hundreds of ponies.

Ghangaria is a scenic but strenuous 14km, seven-hour uphill trek from Govindghat, but you can help the local economy by hiring a porter (Rs 350) or a pony (Rs 400). The return trip takes four to five hours. At Govindghat you can stay at the huge Gurdwara.

Note: No overnight stay is permitted at Hemkund so all visitors must stay in Ghangaria.
