Top Places To Visit in Gopeshwar 12 Spots

Chamoli
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.

Kedarnath, Near Mandakini River, Gopeshwar
At 10.15 a.m we reached the Kedarnath horse camp place ,from there one has to walk 2 Kms to reach the temple. The view of snow clad mountains, River Mandakini flowing nearby, full circle of mountains, some of them covered with moving clouds was a mesmerizing sight. The sight of washed away old trek due to the 2013 floods makes onefeel sad . The Shikahara of temple can be conspicuously spotted from this place. It was a sunny morning, I started walking almost forcibly taking long breaths. After a short break, resumed walking, had I not opened my umbrella, it would have been tiresome. There is a big commercial helipad, helicopters which operate from Guptkashi and Phata land here. One Panditji approached us offering his facilitation to perform Abhishekam at Kedarnathji temple. Instantly we agreed ,he directed us to wash our feet , bow to Nandi and get inside the Mandir. In North Indian Temples, everyone can go inside Garbha Griha, touch the huge Shivalinga, apply ghee (we had carried Nandini Ghee all the way from Sullia).After that successful worship, Panditji took us outside to perform the closing ritual .He offered us Silver coin, Trishul and Prasadam. We did pradhakshina around the temple, spotted the Bheem Shila that protected the temple from devastation during 2013 tragedy . Standing at the holiest and top most places of Hinduism the feeling is very different.By then our group members started arriving, we reciprocated our experiences, clicked some pics, paid the dakshina to Panditji . It was 12.00p.m ,never in my life worked so much with only 1 cup tea, 3 biscuits and 4 dates , unbelievable to me .After relishing the day’s lunch Parota and Chana masala, we headed towards Helicopter waiting centre to check whether return tickets are available. It was a no helicopter ride for the day,as it was cloudy. Meanwhile the horse riders were with us, Pradeepji declined to ride the horse, I rode for a short distance of 4km,after a while joined him committing that trek would include more stops at all pits.We had refreshments to overcome restlessness, and not tiredness, chatted with other pilgrims.We felt as though distance of one Km was too much here,gazing at the perspective view of never ending curves , descents and the scenary. Kedarnath gave us the immense pleasure both spirituality and adventure-wise .Reached Gaurikund at 5.00p.m ,had a cup of hot tea , boarded a Jeep to Sonprayag, reached our hotel before 6.00 PM.

Weekend Getaways from Gopeshwar  

Best time to visit - January,February,March,October,November,December
The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
