“Religious but Very very Beautifull too”
Review of Hemkund Sahib

Hemkund Sahib
Ranked #3 of 15 things to do in Chamoli
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Visited Hemkund in the month of August. Lake at a height of above 4000m and the mountains around is just amazing.

How to reach: New Delhi -> govindghat (20 kms before badrinath on NH 58) motorable road
govindghat -> ghangharia (13 km trek from Govindghat)
Govindghat -> Hemkund (6 km moderate trek )

Where to stay : cheap hotels are available in ghangharia.

Start early to enjoy most of the time up there. Ponnies are available if you are exhausted. :)
Nothing much to do there than visiting the gurudwara and just absorbing the pure nature.

Try to avoid rainy season to view the beautiful peaks all around Hemkund
