Overview

The Hemkund Sahib Yatra is a pilgrimage journey to Hemkund Sahib, a revered Sikh shrine located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, India. Here is an overview of the Hemkund Sahib Yatra:

  1. Spiritual Significance:
    • Hemkund Sahib is a high-altitude gurudwara situated at an elevation of about 4,632 meters (15,197 feet) above sea level. It holds immense spiritual significance for Sikhs and is considered one of the holiest places in Sikhism.
  2. Location:
    • Hemkund Sahib is nestled in the picturesque Himalayan range, surrounded by snow-capped peaks and a serene glacial lake named Hemkund. The journey takes pilgrims through breathtaking landscapes and alpine meadows.
  3. Opening and Closing Dates:
    • The gurudwara is open to pilgrims during the summer months, typically from late May to October, when the region is accessible and the weather is conducive for travel. The opening and closing dates can vary each year depending on weather conditions.

Tour Highlights

  1. Govindghat – Starting Point:
    • The yatra usually commences from Govindghat, a town with road connectivity in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. Pilgrims gather here before embarking on the trek to Hemkund Sahib.
  2. Trekking Through Scenic Landscapes:
    • The trek to Hemkund Sahib covers a distance of approximately 19 kilometers, passing through lush green meadows, dense forests, and picturesque landscapes. The journey is surrounded by the grandeur of the Himalayan mountains.
  3. Ghangaria – Resting Point:
    • Ghangaria, situated at a lower altitude than Hemkund Sahib, serves as a resting point for pilgrims. It provides basic accommodation facilities, and many pilgrims stay here overnight before making the final ascent to the gurudwara.
  4. Brahma Kamal Sightings:
    • En route to Hemkund Sahib, pilgrims may have the opportunity to witness the rare and sacred Brahma Kamal flower, which grows in the Himalayan region. The flower is considered auspicious by many.
