You have to register yourself at Govind Ghat after crossing the bridge that connects Govind Ghat with the trekking trail of Ghangaria.
The motorable road from Govind Ghat is till Pulna on the trek path.
Those who travel in car or bike can park their vehicles in Pulna, a village along the trek route to Ghangaria 4 Kms away from Govind Ghat.
So, either you can trek 14 Kms from Govind Ghat to Ghangaria that would take around 6-7 hours or you can take a taxi from Govind Ghat to Pulna for 300 INR (bargained price) and trek 10 Kms from Pulna to Ghangaria for 5 hours.
If the trek seems an impossible challenge....
If the trek to Ghangaria seems a big issue you can hire a mule/horse/donkey from Govind Ghat for 1000 INR or from Pulna for 800 INR and reach Ghangaria in only 4-5 hours.
There are a lot of refreshment shops along the way, so buy a water bottle and take rest where ever you find it suitable.
* Carrying heavy luggage was the biggest mistake I made. Keep your bag as light as possible.
* Carry a raincoat along or be wet as I did.
* Carry a water bottle.
* Take a trekking pole or a stick along for ease in trekking.
* Check the weather in and around the region online before leaving home and carry suitable clothing.
The Best Alternative
Though its the best but its not the cheapest. You can take a helicopter ride from Govind Ghat to Ghangaria for 3000-3500 INR and reach Ghangaria in just 15 mins.
Where To Stay in Ghangaria?
You can stay at Gurudwara Gobind Dham for free. You may even ask the authorities there for a private room or else stay in the common hall. Food is all time free here and its the most preferred choice.
But electricity and charging your gadgets is a big problem as there are no plugs in many rooms and only a few in the common hall.
Next, you may rent a room in the infinite hotels present there. Here the customer is the kingpin and you can get a room for as low as 200 INR a night.
There are a lot of restaurants available too.
I stayed at Adarsh Guest House and I would personally recommend this place for all the comfort and services the guest house manager provided me.
Near the helipad in Ghangaria camping tents are also available so you may look for it too.
* There are no moblie networks anywhere in and around the area for the next few days you are going to spend there so STD is the only alternative left.
*The STD charges are as high as 10 INR/min.
*Rooms are an easy bargain.
*There is a dispensary in Gobind Dham Gurudwara for any medical assistance.
