Nestled at an elevation of 16,913 ft, Shrikhand Mahadev is considered being another abode of Lord Shiva. According to legends, Lord Shiva took a form of 70 ft stone Shivling (presently known as Shrikhand) when a demon namely Bhasmasura wanted to test if the boon really works by testing it on the Lord. Interestingly, snow falls thick throughout the year but does not cover the Shivling. Trek to Shrikhand Mahadev passes through mist-laden forest and challenging Himalayan terrain. Since the trek is steep and there is low oxygen on the top, therefore it requires expertise level of trekking.
