Hemkund Sahib

Tripoto

Situated at 4,300m elevation in Uttarakhand, Hemkund Sahib is a Sikh pilgrimage site. The 3 day trek to Hemkund Sahib starts from Govind Ghat, about 24Kms from the Gurdwara. It can be completed in a day as well, thanks to the Deccan helicopter service from Govind Ghat to Govind Dham which charges around Rs. 6000 for round trip. The remaining 6 Kms from Govind Dham to Hemkund Sahib can be covered on foot or on mules. It's a steep climb on foot from 9000ft to 15000ft in 6kms, so we took the mules on our way up and walked on our way back to Govind Dham.
