    The drive is spectacular and along the Shrinagar , Ganga, Alaknanda and Mandakini rivers. En route visit at Devprayag. The historical town is situated on the confluence of river Alaknanda & Bhagirathi River which makes the holy Ganges.  Leave Haridwar or Rishikesh early in the morning and travel along River Alakananda on the Badrinath highway. The journey from Haridwar to Joshimath takes about 10 hours.

Ghangaria is also known as GOVIND DHAM, It is the base camp for visiting Hemkund Sahib and Valley of Flowers . . The 13 km trek from Govind Ghat to Ghangria goes all the way along the river. The trek takes 6-7 hours and you approach a tabular land. .

  • DAY 3

    Ghangria to Valley of Flowers and back; 10 kms, 6 hours

    Early in the morning start trekking (7 Km) to reach  "HEMKUND SAHIB". One of the most revered of all Sikh Shrines, The Hemkund  Sahib, the World’s Highest Gurudwara, is situated at an altitude of 4,329 mts.  An hour of stiff climbing brings you to Hemkund  Sahib Gurudwara. The lake lies just behind it. The Hemkund Sahib lake remains frozen for six months. Warm yourself in the Gurudwara and have generous helpings of hot tea and khichdi.

    Walk around to the other side of the Hemkund Lake. The lake exudes an aura of peace and serenity. It’s crystal clear, undisturbed and reflects mountains in it. The lake with crystal clear water , set amidst tall mountains and reflecting them and the Gurudwara is some sight to watch. Around Hemkund, the Himalayan flower, Brahma Kamal grows abundantly.

    Leave Hemkund by early afternoon. The walk down can be strenuous on the knees and toes.  It takes 4- 5 hours to walk down the 6 kms.  Evening is free for rest & relaxation. Overnight stay.

  • DAY 4

    Ghangria to Hemkund Sahib and back; 6 kms,7 hours
    Leave Ghangria early (6 am) to give yourself the whole day to spend at Valley of Flowers. The trail splits in less than a kilometre and there is a gate to buy entry tickets to the valley. The valley is really a botanists’ dreamland. The valley stretches 5-7 km further, until it ends with a glacier visible at a distance. The stream flows all the way through the valley. Carry packed lunch from Ghangria on the Valley of Flowers trek day. There is no food available in the valley and overnight camping isn’t allowed either. Plan your return along the same path by early afternoon. The afternoon sun falling on the valley from a different direction, gives a whole new perspective to the same place you saw in the morning.
