Hemkund Sahib Yatra & Valley of Flowers

Hemkund Sahib Yatra & Valley of Flowers Trek

Hemkund Sahib : – This sacred Sikh shrine is situated on the shores of the Hemkund lake (4320mt.). It marks the place where Guru Govind Singh, the tenth and last Guru, unified with God after prolonged meditation in his previous birth. The guru’s autobiography, which contains a description of the place, helped two devout Sikhs, Sant Sohan Singh and Havaldar Mohan singh to rediscover it. According to Hindu mythology, Hemkund or Lokpal as it is also known is where Lakshman had done his penance. Hemkund Lake is about 2km in circumference. Its clear, still waters mirror images of the Saptashringa Peaks (5500mtrs) which surround it. Bits of ice still float on the waters between July and October, the best season to visit Hemkund. The rockstrewn shores of the lake are covered with moss and flowers in bloom.  

Best time to visit Hemkund Sahib Yatra : –  Hemkund Sahib ji opens every year in the first week of June – 5th June and pilgrimage can visit  this holy sikh shrine up to 5 October. July – August is monsoon period, So few people do not visit that time but July – August is also the best time to visit Valley of flower.
