 Ghangaria (Uttaranchal)

Introduction: Ghangaria is a small village on the way to Hemkund sahib, a popular pilgrimage site for Sikhs and Valley of Flowers, a national park known for its variety of flowers. It is located in the northern Himalayan ranges at an altitude of 3049 meters in Uttarakhand state of India. It is also known as Govinddham. Ghangaria is situated on the bank of the river Pushpawati, also known as Laxman Ganga. It is the last human habitation in this tiny valley. This place is usually used by travelers as a base camp to visit Hemkund and Valley of flowers. It remains open only through the month of May till September with rest of the year covered under 8 feet of snow

Description: Ghangaria can be reached after a 14 km trek from Govindghat. One can also hire a porter or mule to avoid this strenuous trekking. There is no clear road, only a path made of rocks. Ghangaria has various hotels including the one from GMVN (Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam), restaurants serving Punjabi dishes, shops, camping grounds and a big Gurdwara to accommodate all the pilgrims.
