Hemkund Sahib is the highest gurudwara in the world at 15,200 ft!! Beating the altitude of some nature marvels like spiti valley and Leh Ladakh! It is 7 kms from Ghangariya, the way is well paved and distinct with mules and porters available to carry you in case you dont wish to climb. Even though 7km may not sound much, you are in for a ride as it is quite steep! While climbing your way up, you will experience some of the most spectacular visual treats! (Il let the photos do the talking!)
Upon reaching, next to gurduwara there is Sri Sarovar Sahib which is a breathtaking, spell bounding lake which will gave other marvels like Bhrigu lake a run for their money! If you are bold enough (like me) take a dip in the freereezing water of sarovar sahib which is sure to freeze your soul within 3 seconds. You will not feel cold after, its my promise.
Start descending by 12 pm as you dont want to butt heads with the weather!
