Hemkund Sahib (also speller “HEMKUNT”) , formally Known as Gurudwara Shri Hemkund Sahibji, is a Sikh place of worship and pilgrimage site in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand, India. It is devoted to Guru Gobind Singh ( 1666-1708),the 10th Sikh Guru and finds mention in “DASAM GRANTH”. 

In late 19th century Pandit Tara Singh Naratam a NIRAMAL SCHOLAR compiled synopsis of the various Sikh Pilgrimage places which included Sri HEMKUND SAHIB.

With its setting of a glacial lake surrounded by 7 mountain peaks, each aborned by a Nishan Sahib on it’s Cliff , it is according to survey of India . Located in the Himalayas at an elevation of 4632 m ( 15,197ft). It is approached from Govind Ghat on the Rishikesh-Badrinath highway. 

The altitude of the lake at HEMKUND is approximately 15,000 ft.

HEMKUND is inaccessible from October through April because of Snow bound paths and Glaciers.Sikh pilgrims arrive in May and set to work to repair the damage to the path over the Winter, which tradition is called “KAR SEVA” (“SELFLESS SERVICE”) a concept which forms an important tenet of the Sikh Faith.

           HOW TO GO :

                         From Govindghat , HEMKUND Sahib is about 14km Trek to base camp at GHANGARIA. It takes 4-6 hrs to reach GHANGARIA, from where another 6km trek leads to HEMKUND SAHIB.

               The temperature of HEMKUND SAHIB is the month of June is around 13°-23°C . In this month there is snowfall on the way of HEMKUND SAHIB.

This is the famous “Brahma kamal” flower which is only found there. It has very strong fragrance.

There is a Myth about HEMKUND SAHIB :

HEMKUND is a Sanskrit name derived from HEM (SNOW) & KUND (BOWL).

DASAM GRANTH says…this is the place where PANDU RAJA practiced Yoga. In addition the DASAM GRANTH says that..in a former life GURU GOBIND SINGH meditated intensly at HEMKUND on MAHAKAL KALIKA.
