Hemkund Sahib

Also known as the Gurudwara Henkunt Sahib, this is the highest gurudwara in the world. It is on the shores of the Hemkund lake at an altitude of over 14000 ft above sea level. The water of this lake is always freezing and equally chilly is the wind here. this is a beautifully maintained gurudwara where they serve maggi and tea as part of the langar continuously. Also, the sweet halwa prasad of here is very tasty. The peaceful ambience has a magical effect on everyone. To reach this place you will have to keep trekking and then climb a number of stone stairs. The journey may seem to be tiresome but the fabulous experience will compensate for all the difficulty you have had taken to reach here.

The Himalayan Spirit
હેમકુંડ સાહેબ શીખોનું એક ધાર્મિક સ્થળ છે. સમુદ્રસપાટીથી આશરે 4632 ફેટની ઊંચાઈ પર આવેલા આ સ્થળને 7 પર્વતમાળા દ્વારા ઘેરાયેલું છે. શીખોના 10 માં ગુરુ ગોવિંદ સિંઘે અહીં તપસ્યા કરી હતી. આ એક ખૂબ જ પવિત્ર ગુરુદ્વારા છે અને અહીં નજીકમાં આવેલા કુંડમાં ઘણા શ્રધ્ધાળુઓ સ્નાન કરે છે. ઓકટોબરથી એપ્રિલ દરમિયાન ભારે હિમવર્ષાને કારણએ ઘણી વર અહીંના રસ્તાઓ બંધ રહે છે.
